Albertans looking forward to seeing Fleetwood Mac live in concert later this month will have to wait a bit longer to see them perform.

Shows planned for Rogers Place in Edmonton on Saturday, April 13 and the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary on Monday, April 15 have been postponed as Stevie Nicks has the flu.

The band cancelled four shows in total, including one in Toronto on Monday and Winnipeg on Thursday.

Ticket holders will be notified of new concert dates, or they will be able to get refunds at their point of purchase, Live Nation said Monday.

This marks the second time that Calgary and Edmonton concert-goers have learned the show they purchased tickets to has been rescheduled; both performances were originally supposed to be in November, but the band cancelled due to illness.

“We are having more fun than ever on this current tour, but as we all know, touring life comes with its challenges,” Mick Fleetwood said in a release posted online. “The flu has sidelined Stevie for a couple of weeks but she is on the mend and we look forward to getting back out on the road.”
