Merle Haggard had canceled shows earlier this month due to health concerns from double pneumonia. Rolling Stone reports The Hag returned to the spotlight this past weekend at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas for a show that also included Toby Keith. It was the singer’s first appearance since calling off his February 2nd performance in Riverside, California.
According to the Los Angels Times, the 78-year-old performer will resume his schedule with three upcoming shows in California. He is slated to be in Santa Rosa on Wednesday, February 10th, and plays in Beverly Hills the following day with Kris Kristofferson. He’s also scheduled to appear in Oakland on Saturday, February 13th.
