Fleetwood Mac Australian Tour Cancelled

Written by Greg Moskovitch on October 27, 2013

Classic rock stalwarts Fleetwood Mac have cancelled their long-awaited 2013 Australian-New Zealand tour, announcing the news via their official Facebook page. The band was set to launch their 14-date tour at the Sydney Entertainment Centre next month.

Bassist John McVie, one of the band’s co-founders, is reportedly scheduled to undergo treatment for cancer during what would have been the Australian leg of the band’s tour, with the band stating:

“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.”

Promoter Live Nation, who acquired the tour from Andrew McManus, have not yet made an official announcement. The band had just completed the European leg of their world tour, in support of their latest release, an EP titled Extended Play.

UPDATE: Promoters of the tour, Live Nation Entertainment, have released an official statement announcing that they will be offering all ticket-holders refunds starting Monday, 28th October.
