Just days after replacing The Rolling Stones as New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival headliners due to Mick Jagger’s heart surgery, Fleetwood Mac has also canceled their May 2 gig at the New Orleans festival as Stevie Nicks recovers from the flu.
Jazz Fest released the following statement on social media:
"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. Stay tuned for updates about May 2 talent and tickets."
Fleetwood Mac recently postponed concerts in Boston and Philadelphia due to Nicks’s illness, and on Monday the band announced the remaining four shows of their U.S. trek would be rescheduled as the singer continues to recover.
“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,” a rep for the band said in a statement.
