Stevie Nicks Cancels All April Shows

After first postponing a New Orleans concert at the Smoothie King Center, Stevie Nicks has now canceled it.  The Fleetwood Mac vocalist was initially set to headline the solo show April 2. Citing a COVID-19 infection within her band -- it has not been specified who was sick -- she postponed it to April 15. 

But on Tuesday, Nicks' publicist said that "due to ongoing illnesses within the band," the New Orleans date has been scrapped and won't be rescheduled. Another rescheduled Nicks show, in Oklahoma City, as well as an April 5 show in Birmingham, Alabama, have also been canceled.

Refunds in the works
Refunds will be automatically processed "to the original method of payment," says a message on the Ticketmaster page for the New Orleans show. The message also says, "If the tickets were transferred to you, the refund will go to the fan who originally purchased the tickets from Ticketmaster."

Additionally, Nicks' co-headlining concert with Billy Joel at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on April 8 has been postponed to March 9.

The next concert that is still on her schedule is May 12 in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The April 15 New Orleans date was one of 14 arena-headlining concerts that the 74-year-old Nicks scheduled this spring, between her stadium shows with Joel.

Her previous visits
She was in town less than a year ago, when she drew one of the largest crowds at the 2022 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fesitval. That show marked her return to live performance following a two-year pandemic-related hiatus. Some audience members cried when she dedicated her solo hit "Landslide" to the Foo Fighters' recently deceased drummer, Taylor Hawkins.

CHRISTINE MCVIE DIED of a stroke and cancer according to death certificate

Christine McVie Died of a Stroke and Metastasized Cancer: Report

The Fleetwood Mac star told Rolling Stone last June that she had been suffering from a "chronic back problem that debilitates me"

APRIL 3, 2023

CHRISTINE MCVIE DIED of a stroke and cancer, a death certificate obtained by The Blast revealed Monday.

McVie suffered an ischemic stroke, meaning that the blood supply to part of the brain was interrupted or reduced, preventing brain tissue from getting oxygen and nutrients, according to the Mayo Clinic. The new information about the Fleetwood Mac member’s cause of death arrives more than three months after she died at age 79 on Nov. 30.

Per the death certificate, McVie had also been diagnosed with “metastatic malignancy of unknown primary origin,” indicating that cancer cells had been found in her body, but it was unclear where they had originated from.

McVie’s family had originally said that McVie died at the hospital “following a short illness” while surrounded by her family. “We would like everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human being, and revered musician who was loved universally,” her family wrote.

Fleetwood Mac also confirmed her passing in a social media statement, writing “There are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie. She was truly one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure. She was the best musician anyone could have in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their life.”

The band added, “We were so lucky to have a life with her. Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. She will be so very missed.”

In an interview with Rolling Stone back in June 2022, McVie acknowledged that she was in “quite bad health.” She said she was struggling with a “chronic back problem,” though didn’t offer any further details.

“I don’t feel physically up for it,” she said about going on tour with the band. “I’m in quite bad health. I’ve got a chronic back problem, which debilitates me. I stand up to play the piano, so I don’t know if I could actually physically do it. What’s that saying? The mind is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

The death certificate was revealed in court documents filed to settle to singer’s massive estate. Christine was not married and never had any children. So, according to the filing, the singer’s brother and his children are the sole heirs of her musical fortune. Also, several charities are going to be the recipient of some of her assets, but it’s unclear how much.

The filing indicates that McVie’s fortune was in excess of $50 Million. Most of her assets are in the United States, but a bit of her liquid money was in the UK.

It should be noted, the singer’s longtime business manager is named as the executor of her estate. The documents reveal the estate has an urgent tax bill due, and it asking a judge to intervene. “It is urgent that this matter be heard as soon as possible, on an Ex Parte basis, due to the impending tax liability in the amount of £31,000,000 which must be paid on or before May 31, 2023. As mentioned above, the UK estate is subject to interest in penalties at a rate of 6.5% if such tax liability is not timely paid,” it states.
