Fleetwood Mac announced today (April 18) they have rescheduled their North American dates which were canceled on April 8 due to a Stevie Nicks illness. The rescheduled performances will take place in October and November, along with a new date in Quebec City. All previously held tickets will be honored on the rescheduled dates, along with new tickets which are being made available for these shows. See the new dates below.

Their May 2 appearance at Jazz Fest announced on April 4 will not be made up. Ironically, the band were subbing at Jazz Fest for the Rolling Stones, who were forced to cancel their appearance – and postpone their entire North American tour – when it was revealed that Mick Jagger required a heart valve procedure.

At first, Fleetwood Mac had to postpone dates in Boston and Philadelphia “due to illness.” Once the severity of Nicks’ condition was determined, the decision was made to postpone the remaining dates of the spring leg of their tour.

Nicks was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019 as a solo artist on March 29.

Last September, following two dress rehearsals – with a nationally televised appearance on Ellen on September 5, 2018, and a brief, five-song set at the iHeartRadio music festival on Sept 21, Fleetwood Mac took the wraps off their new lineup in concert in Tulsa, Okla., when they kicked off what is expected to be a world tour that will continue well into 2019 (and beyond?).

On Jan. 16, they announced the first Australia and New Zealand dates of their tour, then added several more a few weeks’ later.

At the Oct. 3 Tulsa performance, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks formally introduced two new members – former Split Enz/Crowded House guitarist-vocalist Neil Finn and Heartbreakers’ guitarist Mike Campbell – who replaced longtime Mac guitarist/vocalist/songwriter/producer Lindsey Buckingham. The latter’s departure was revealed on April 9, 2018, and – despite a long history of a revolving door to the band’s lineup – was a surprise to the band’s faithful.

The band had promised to include several older songs on the tour’s setlist. At opening night at the BOK Center, the new lineup offered two dozen songs that incorporated two hits from Finn’s past as well as a Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers favorite. In addition to numerous Fleetwood Mac hits, the set reached back into its enormous catalog with several Mac classics the band hadn’t performed in decades.

For “Black Magic Woman,” written by the band’s co-founder Peter Green, and which the band reportedly hadn’t played since 1987, Nicks sang lead while Christine McVie on keyboards jammed with Campbell.
