Fleetwood Mac Cancel Tour Dates Due to Sad News!
It was with great sadness of heart that I read this morning about John McVie's current battle with Cancer and the cancellation of the tour dates in Australia/New Zealand. Aged 67 and one of the Co-founding members of Fleetwood Mac along with Drummer Mick Fleetwood, McVie's treatment falls into the time when the Australian and NZ dates would be taking place and therefore as a band they have decided to cancel the shows. Here is the full statement from their Facebook Page:
FLEETWOOD MAC CANCELS AUSTRALIAN/NEW ZEALAND TOUR Fleetwood
Mac who has just completed the European leg of their phenomenally
successful worldwide tour has announced the cancellation of their
upcoming 14 date tour of Australia and New Zealand.
McVie, one of the co founding and original members of Fleetwood Mac is
now scheduled to be in treatment for cancer during that period of time.
"We are sorry to not be able to play these Australian and New
Zealand dates. We hope our Australian and New Zealand fans as well as
Fleetwood Mac fans everywhere will join us in wishing John and his
family all the best.”
I trust that you will join me in wishing the very best outcome for John.
