Because of concerns regarding the spread of COVID, Stevie Nicks has canceled five forthcoming performances at music festivals. Stevie was set to headline one day each of BottleRock Napa Valley in California and the Jazz Aspen Festival in Colorado in September. In October, she was to have played two days of the Austin City Limits Music Festival and one day of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. “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,” explained the 73-year-old singer. “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.” As Stevie was releasing her statement, one of the festivals she was scheduled to perform at was doing the same thing. The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival has been canceled for 2021.According to a statement released by officials, the current growth of new COVID cases in New Orleans and the region and the ongoing public health emergency is the reason behind rescheduling for 2022. Other artists like Reba McEntyre, Josh Groban and Pearl Jam have canceled performance and appearances for 2021 and the list no doubt will get longer with Garth Brooks announcing he is seriously considering stopping his stadium tour.

    Country legend Reba McEntire actually got COVID and she said it was no joke. That is why she is taking the rest of 2021 off. She plans to stay safe and wants all her fans to do the same. Her Las Vegas shows with Books & Dunn have been canceled and will be rescheduled when it is safe for people to get together and enjoy. Thank you Reba, thank you Stevie Nicks. You have my utmost respect not just as artists but as human beings.

    I believe Stevie Nicks did the right thing and so did the New Orleans Jazz Festival. I live in New Orleans and like in so many other cities, this “thing” has not gone away. Some want to wish it away, but that is not the reality of COVID. I wish I could thank all the artists personally who have taken a stand against COVID. No doubt they have saved lives.

    I wish more artist would do what Stevie Nicks did. I know we are all tired of staying home, wearing masks, not going out to concerts or sporting events (Go Niners), but COVID is not taking a vacay people. If we would all do the right thing, this horrible pandemic would end. Think about it.

    Garth Brooks just cancelled his stadium tour dates. Whether we like it or not people, the pandemic is still with us and we have to be smart. God bless you Garth for caring about your fans. You too Stevie and all those artists who get it!
