Fleetwood Mac Cancels Jazz Fest Apperance Due To Stevie Nicks' Illness

Fleetwood Mac is canceling their tour, including the upcoming performance scheduled for the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Stevie Nicks is said to be recovering from the flu, and the band released a statement that they'd be rescheduling the remaining four shows the North American tour so she can make a full recovery.

Mick Fleetwood said, "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."


The band was just selected to replace the Rolling Stones after Mick Jagger was sidelined for heart surgery. 

Festival organizers announced later on Monday that Widespread Panic had been added to the May 2 lineup and that admission for May 2 would no longer be day-specific.

According to a press release:

Second weekend general admission tickets will now be valid for any one day of the weekend, including May 2. General admission tickets to either weekend are only $75 through the day prior to each weekend. May 2 will now also become a second Locals Thursday (along with April 25). For both Thursdays, tickets will be only $50 dollars at the gate for Louisiana residents who present valid identification, up to two admissions per resident. Children's tickets (ages 2 - 10) are only $5 and will now be available on every Festival day (at the gate only).
