Fleetwood Mac have officially announced the cancellation of their performances this spring, that includes their just announced Jazz Fest gig, in which they were replacing The Rolling Stones on due to Mick Jagger’s illness. Now, It’s Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks who is sick with the flu, although they mention within the lengthy statement that she is feeling better already, they said management consulted with her doctors and they decided its best to call off the remaining four dates of their North American tour to allow for a full recovery moving forward into their Europe and Australian tour.
Read their full statement below:
“As an update to previous Fleetwood Mac posts regarding a band member illness, Stevie Nicks has the flu. While she is feeling better already, management has consulted with her doctors and have decided to reschedule the remaining four shows of their North American tour to allow for her full recovery. Due to sports Playoff schedules and existing touring commitments in Europe and Australia, we are looking to move rescheduled cities (Boston, Philadelphia, Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Calgary) to October/November 2019. Ticketholders will receive new dates and details shortly. Unfortunately the band will not be able to perform at Jazz Fest in New Orleans on May 2.
“We are having more fun than ever on this current tour, but as we all know, touring life comes with its challenges. The flu has sidelined Stevie for a couple of weeks but she is on the mend and we look forward to getting back out on the road. We so apologize to the fans, but we are working on rescheduling,” said Mick Fleetwood.”
