Stevie Nicks Postpones Another Concert ‘Due to Illness’

Stevie Nicks will no longer play at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on Tuesday night “due to illness,” according to a statement on the venue’s social media.

“Due to illness, the Stevie Nicks concerts on Tuesday, June 18 in Grand Rapids has been postponed to September 24,” the statement reads. “Customers should hold on to their tickets, previously purchased tickets will be honored.”

The statement ended with optimism that Nicks and her band will be well enough to play at Chicago’s Soldier Field later this week. “Stevie looks forward to seeing fans on Friday night in Chicago.”

The announcement comes days after Nicks postponed her concert scheduled for Saturday at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania, “due to illness in the band.” That news was posted on the stadium’s socials at 5:30 p.m., hours before show time.

The Hershey, Grand Rapids and Chicago concerts are the final three U.S. dates on Nicks’ current tour. She has six shows scheduled in Europe for July, including in Dublin, London and Amsterdam, and then will return Stateside to make up the Grand Rapids concert in September; no new date has been announced for Hersheypark as of press time.

On June 9, Billboard‘s Ashley Iasimone covered Nicks’ concert the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. During the set, Nicks poked fun at herself for telling rambling (and fascinating) stories about her decades as a rock star, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. “I’m so old,” Nicks said with a grin onstage. “… What’s everybody gonna say to me? ‘Stop! You can’t do this anymore!’ I’ll say, ‘OK. Fine. I’ll just go home and be alone in a rocking chair with my dog Lily.’”
