Fleetwood Mac has been forced to postpone the remainder of their North American tour dates, including their recently booked set at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, due to Stevie Nicks battling the flu.
The following statement was released from a band representative: “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.”
Fleetwood Mac was announced as a headliner for the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival late last week as a replacement for The Rolling Stones. The Stones had to back out of the festival due to Mick Jagger’s recent heart valve surgery.
