The former Fleetwood Mac singer did confirm that her BST Hyde Park show in London on July 12 is still scheduled to go ahead, but said she would have to move the two preceding gigs as she requires a “minor surgical procedure”.

In a statement issued to social media, Nicks’ team advised all ticket holders for Glasgow and Manchester to “hold on to their tickets” as rescheduled dates would be announced soon.

“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,” the statement read.

“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.”

Last month, Nicks also had to cancel a show in Hershey, Pennsylvania due to an “illness in the band”.

The full line-up for the singer’s BST Hyde Park show was completed in recent weeks, with Brandi Carlile, Anna Calvi and Paris Paloma being joined on the bill by Baby QueenNina Nesbitt, Siobhan Winifred, CATTY, Talia Rae, Stevie Bill and Nina Versyp.

During Nicks’ visit to Dublin last week, she took in a show on Taylor Swift’s all-conquering ‘Eras’ tour, appearing visibly emotional during ‘Midnights‘ track ‘You’re On Your Own, Kid’, and later enjoying a night out with Swift, Travis Kelce and Paramore in the Hacienda Bar.

Swift also dedicated the live debut of ‘Clara Bow’ to Nicks that night, the first time ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ track had ever been played live.

“I’ve never played this song live at all,” she said. “The reason I want to play this tonight is because a friend of mine is here who is watching the show is one of the reasons why I or any other female artists get to do what I get to do.

“She’s paved the way for us… she’s a hero of mine and also someone I could tell any secret to; she’d never tell anybody. She’s really helped me through so much over the years. I’m talking about Stevie Nicks.”
