Stevie Nicks postpones remaining 2021 shows due to COVID-19
Though she only had five concerts planned for 2021, Stevie Nicks is calling them all off.
The singer, who spent much of last year isolated and asked fans to respect social distancing and wear masks, has now announced that out of an abundance of caution, she won’t be performing this year.
The longtime Fleetwood Mac member continues, “While I’m vaccinated, at my age, I’m still being extremely cautious and for that reason have decided to skip the [five] performances I had planned for 2021.”
Most of the festivals themselves are moving forward with replacement headliners. Country star Chris Stapleton will take Nicks’ place at BottleRock.
“Because singing and performing have been my whole life, my primary goal is to keep healthy so I can continue singing for the next decade or longer,” Nicks’ statement said. “I’m devastated and I know the fans are disappointed, but we will look towards a brighter 2022.”
