After postponing the remainder of its North American tour dates earlier this month, Fleetwood Mac has announced the rescheduled shows.Seven out of the eight affected dates have been pushed back until the fall, including the five Canadian shows: Quebec City, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton.Story continues below
The tour was ultimately postponed as a result of singer Stevie Nicks‘ health. The leading lady caught the flu ahead of a performance scheduled in Boston.“We are having more fun than ever on this current tour,” said drummer Mick Fleetwood, “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,” he added, “and we look forward to getting back out on the road. So we apologize to the fans.”Tickets already purchased for the ‘An Evening with Fleetwood Mac’ tour will be honoured for the newly scheduled dates.
