Fleetwood Mac was forced to reschedule their concert at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, just a few hours before show time on Saturday night (Nov. 10) after singer Stevie Nicks fell ill. The “Dreams” rockers additionally canceled their concert at the Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, which was set to take place on Monday (Nov. 12).
Newest member guitarist/singer Neil Finn addressed the situation, writing, “So sorry we couldnt play for you tonight Edmonton but we had to protect that wondrous force of nature that is Stevies voice. We’ll be back in April better than ever.”
This is the third cancelation Rogers Place has seen in the past few months, as Justin Timberlake rescheduled last week due to bruised vocal chords and the Foo Fighters postponed their show in September after frontman Dave Grohl lost his voice.
Fleetwood Mac ticket holders can use their tickets for the canceled shows to see the band perform in Edmonton on April 13 and Calgary on April 15.
See Finn’s tweet regarding the postponed performances below.
So sorry we couldnt play for you tonight Edmonton but we had to protect that wondrous force of nature that is Stevies voice. We’ll be back in April better than ever . Love you xo
