Nelson publicist Elaine Schock reportedly confirmed the weekend cancellations, saying Nelson has a bad cold. Scheduled performances Feb. 1, Feb. 3 and Feb. 4 at the Venetian remain on the books.

Nelson’s upcoming itinerary includes a few more southwest dates before a Feb. 16 rodeo concert in San Antonio. His next Austin-area date is the annual Luck Reunion on his property west of town March 16, in the midst of South by Southwest.

Nelson has a new album due out in April titled “God’s Problem Child.”
