Fleetwood Mac Postpone Dates Due To Stevie Nicks Illness
(hennemusic) Fleetwood Mac have postponed the final dates of a North American tour as Stevie Nicks recovers from the flu, including their headline performance at the New Orleans Jazz Fest.
An April 2 show in Boston, MA and an April 3 appearance in Philadelphia, PA were shut down on short notice last week and, now, The Toronto Star reports the group's remaining four Canadian concerts - including Monday night's show in Toronto - have also been put on hold.
"While she is feeling better already," announced Live Nation, "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."
A few days after announcing that they have recruited Fleetwood Mac to take the spot of the Rolling Stones at the New Orleans Jazz Fest organizers tweeted "Due to the illness of Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac has just announced the postponement of four upcoming North American tour dates and their performance at Jazz Fest on May 2."
