Fleetwood Mac postponed their upcoming tour dates, it was announced on Monday, as Stevie Nicks recovers from the flu. The shows in question are four Canadian tour stops, which are expected to be rescheduled for October.
The news comes days after Nicks’ induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for her solo work and shortly after Fleetwood Mac were named to be replacing the Rolling Stones at the New Orleans Jazz Fest (made necessary by Mick Jagger’s heart operation, which postponed the Stones’ scheduled tour last week).
JazzFest dropped the news:
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.

Mick Fleetwood added his own statement, as reported by Rolling Stone:
“We are having more fun than ever on this current tour, but as we all know, touring life comes with its challenges. The flu has sidelined Stevie for a couple of weeks but she is on the mend and we look forward to getting back out on the road. We so apologize to the fans, but we are working on rescheduling.”
Fleetwood Mac have a number of tour dates still on the schedule for much of the rest of the year — visit the band’s official site for full details.
