Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Willie Nelson has canceled all eight of his scheduled February tour dates to recover from the flu, his publicist announced.

Nelson was scheduled to perform in six locations across Florida, at the Macon Centreplex Coliseum in Macon, Ga., and at the IP Casino Resort & Hotel in Biloxi, Miss.

"Willie Nelson has canceled his February tour dates as he requires a few extra weeks to recover completely from the flu," the country icon's publicist said in a statement. "He is up and about and looks as healthy as ever but his doctor has determined that his voice needs more time to recuperate to give the performances you all love seeing. Willie will resume the tour in early March."

"I will see you all down the road," Nelson said. His next tour date is scheduled for March 5 in Greenville, S.C.

Nelson previously ended a show early in August in Salt Lake City due to breathing problems that he later blamed on the high altitude.
