Willie Nelson Concert Cancelled, Band Members Issued Citations

Willie Nelson's band members were issued citations Thursday night in Duplin County.

The State Alcohol Law Enforcement Division cited some of his band members for possession of moonshine and a misdemeanor amount of marijuana.

Willie Nelson was set to perform in Duplin County Thursday night, but his management said he was sick and could not perform.

According to Willie Nelson's website, the performance was cancelled because Nelson's hand was in too much pain to play the guitar. Doctors told him to rest. The site goes on to say the show is currently being rescheduled.

Nelson was not present at the time his band members were issued the citation.
