Stevie Nicks has had to cancel some of her tour dates so she can recover from surgery.

The 76-year-old rock star is currently on the road performing her greatest hits and had been due to take to the stage at the OVO Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland on Saturday (06.07.24) but has had to pull out of the gig completely, along with another performance that was meant to take place at the Co-Op Live Arena in Manchester on Tuesday.

In a statement, the OVO Hydro wrote on X: "Due to a recent leg injury requiring a minor surgical procedure that will need a few days of recovery time, Stevie Nicks’ scheduled performances in Glasgow Saturday 6 July and Manchester Tuesday 9 July have been postponed."

It is expected that the cancelled performances will be rescheduled as the venue explained to fans that more information would be available at wherever they purchased their tickets and that the former Fleetwood Mac star - who is yet to provide any information herself - is "looking forward" to hitting Hyde Park in London on Friday 12 July.

The statement added: "More information will be available at point of purchase, ticketholders are advised to hold on to their tickets as rescheduled dates will be announced soon. Stevie looks forward to seeing everyone at Hyde Park in London."

In 2021, Stevie scrapped all her concerts for the year because she was concerned about the rising cases of coronavirus across the globe and was particularly worried that it may end her career if she catches it.

She said in a statement at the time: “These are challenging times with challenging decisions that have to be made. I want everyone to be safe and healthy and the rising COVID cases should be of concern to all of us. While I’m vaccinated, at my age, I am still being extremely cautious and for that reason have decided to skip the 5 performances I had planned for 2021. Because singing and performing have been my whole life, my primary goal is to keep healthy so I can continue singing for the next decade or longer.

"I’m devastated and I know the fans are disappointed, but we will look towards a brighter 2022.”

She returned to the stage in the summer and autumn of 2022.
