Illness has forced superstars Fleetwood Mac to cancel their Australian tour, including their scheduled appearance at Hope Estate.
The band’s co-founder John McVie is scheduled for cancer treatment during the period in which the band were to play a 14-date tour of our shores.
“We are sorry to not be able to play these Australian and New Zealand dates,” a statement from the band said.
“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.”
McVie formed Fleetwood Mac in 1967 with drummer Mick Fleetwood and guitarist Peter Green, having met as members of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.
The bassist, along with Fleetwood, has been a member of Fleetwood Mac ever since.
Fleetwood Mac were to play Hope Estate winery on Saturday, November 16.
