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.
