Fleetwood Mac have been forced to cancel their Manchester Arena gig due to illness.
It is the second gig in a week the British-American band has cancelled, after Birmingham’s gig on Wednesday was postponed and rescheduled for a later date.
The concert at the Arena scheduled for July 1 is due to go ahead as planned.
A tour promoter statement said: “We are very sorry to announce that tonight’s Fleetwood Mac ‘On With The Show’ tour date in Manchester has been cancelled due to illness.
“Refunds for tonight’s cancelled date in Manchester will be issued automatically within 14 days.
“The 1 July show will go ahead as planned.
“Should you need any further assistance, please contact your ticket seller directly.”
No further details, such as which member has taken ill, have been made available and the MEN understands tour promoters have failed to find a date to reschedule tonight’s Manchester show.
Fleetwood Mac are also scheduled to headline the Isle of Wight Festival on Sunday.
Stevie Nicks and co are in the middle of their On With The Show Tour, which takes in the UK and Ireland before the band jet off to play arenas in Australia.
