In Case You Missed It The First Time…
As we reported last week, Fleetwood Mac announced the postponement of the remainder of their 2019 North American Tour just one day after it was announced that they were pulling shows in Philadelphia and Boston due to Stevie Nicks suffering from the flu.
Nicks, 70, was already on the mend and feeling better, but to allow her time to recover Fleetwood Mac decided to postpone dates in Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Calgary.
Even sadder, they were 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 was made. It read:
“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 came hot on the heels of singer Stevie Nicks’ induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month, where she became the first woman to be inducted into the Hall twice and only the 23rd artist ever to do so.
Even if you’re not the biggest Fleetwood Mac fan, you’ve got to admit – this is incredible news! See you on the road!
