While the last three battle it out in ‘The X Factor’ grand final, Live Nation has revealed that legendary band Fleetwood Mac have been forced to cancel their Australian tour.
They were due to touch down in Australia in just two weeks from now for the first in a series of concerts for their Aussie fans, with a number of their shows already sold out.
But co-founder John McVie is now scheduled to head into treatment for cancer. Naturally, the band is devastated to have let down their Australian fans at such short notice, saying in a statement, “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.”
Live Nation were also apologetic.
“Live Nation Australia wish John Mcvie a full and speedy recovery, and regret the disappointment that this announcement will cause for the band’s multitude of Australian fans.”
We all no doubt reach out to John and his family during what’s obviously a difficult time.
Refunds will be made available from the point of purchase beginning tomorrow.
