Fleetwood Mac Forced To Postpone Remainder Of Tour
It’s a decision no band wants to make, but Fleetwood Mac just made it.
Only a day after it was announced that they were pulling shows in Philadelphia and Boston due to Stevie Nicks suffering from the flu, Fleetwood Mac have announced the postponement of the remainder of their 2019 North American Tour until further notice.
It was reported yesterday that Nicks, 70, is already on the mend and feeling better, but to allow her time to recover Fleetwood Mac have also sidelined dates in Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Calgary.
Even sadder, they’ll be forced to miss next month’s New Orleans Jazz Fest – the same event at which they were tapped to replace The Rolling Stones following news of Mick Jagger requiring heart valve replacement surgery.
A statement regarding the postponement has been made. It reads:
“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 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.”
The postponement comes hot on the heels of singer Stevie Nicks’ induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nearly two weeks ago, where she became the first woman to be inducted into the Hall twice and only the 23rd artist ever to do so.
Here’s hoping for a full recovery for Stevie, and a quick return to the road for Fleetwood Mac!
