NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Country legend Merle Haggard has returned to the stage after canceling several shows in February because of health issues caused by pneumonia.

A statement from his publicist Monday says the 78-year-old singer performed in Las Vegas on Saturday as previously planned.

The singer announced last Wednesday that he would be canceling his February tour dates because he was still feeling weak from his recent struggle with pneumonia in both lungs.

The latest statement says Haggard was planning to perform at three scheduled shows in California this week, including a show with Kris Kristofferson on Thursday in Beverly Hills.
