Willie Nelson has suspended his tour indefinitely, after three members of his band were injured when their tour bus crashed in east Texas overnight. Nelson was not on board the bus at the time of the crash and is not injured.
The crash happened around 3:30 Saturday morning, when the bus hit a bridge pillar about 80 miles east of Dallas. It does not appear that anyone on the bus suffered life-threatening injuries. However, Nelson has announced that his tour will be suspended indefinitely while they recover:
This year’s Willie Nelson tour has been suspended indefinitely. We will post more when it becomes available.
