New Orleans Jazz Fest is having bad luck with headliners. First Rolling Stones, who postponed their tour while Mick Jagger had heart valve replacement surgery, dropped off the lineup. Fleetwood Mac were announced to replace them, and now they are cancelling too. As Rolling Stone reports, Stevie Nicks has the flu, and the band is rescheduling the final four dates of their North American tour while she recovers.

A statement from the band reads:

As an update to previous Fleetwood Mac posts regarding a band member illness, Stevie Nicks has the flu. While she is feeling better already, management has consulted with her doctors and have decided to reschedule the remaining four shows of their North American tour to allow for her full recovery.

Due to sports playoff schedules and existing touring commitments in Europe and Australia, we are looking to move rescheduled cities (Boston, Philadelphia, Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Calgary) to October/November 2019. Ticketholders will receive new dates and details shortly. Unfortunately the band will not be able to perform at Jazz Fest in New Orleans on May 2.

Jazz Fest has not made an announcement about (another) replacement yet, but in a tweet, they write, "stay tuned for updates about May 2 talent and tickets."

The lineup for Thursday, May 2 at Jazz Fest currently includes Mavis Staples, Ziggy Marley, Tom Jones, Anders Osborne, and others.
