Fleetwood Mac Get Dragged After Postponing Calgary And Edmonton Shows Due To Stevie Nicks’ Illness
Just hours ahead of showtime in Edmonton Saturday night, a tweet from Rogers Place indicated that Fleetwood Mac Version 3.5 would be rescheduling that show, and tonight’s in Calgary, due to a “band member illness” — although a note on Twitter (later deleted) from Neil Finn read: “So sorry we couldnt play for you tonight Edmonton but we had to protect that wondrous force of nature that is Stevies [sic] voice. We’ll be back in April better than ever.”
The band will now play Edmonton Saturday April 13 and Calgary Monday April 15; tickets for the original dates will be honored or refunded.
Not surprisingly, the short notice apparently harshed the mellows of a number of fans:

As much as I love @fleetwoodmac they’ve always been completely self-absorbed. If one person’s sick, I don’t even care if it’s Nicks, you go on. If people want a refund, they can have a refund. Pull it together people.

We are heartbroken!!! Travelled from Toronto to see @fleetwoodmac as part of our honeymoon – with “You Make Lovin’ Fun” as our first dance. Definitely won’t be here again in April. Just devastated. 🙁
