Merle Haggard returned to the concert stage for the first time in several months at a show in Las Vegas over the weekend, less than a week after announcing he was canceling his entire live schedule for February.
Country legend Merle Haggard has canceled the remainder of his tour dates in February due to ongoing concerns with his health after a recent bout of pneumonia. The performances include a Feb. 3 show with Kris Kristofferson in Beverly Hills and five additional dates.
