The band recently replaced the Rolling Stones as Jazz Fest headliners after Mick Jagger had heart surgery.

“As an update to previous Fleetwood Mac posts regarding a band member illness, Stevie Nicks has the flu. While she is feeling better already, management has consulted with her doctors and have decided to reschedule the remaining four shows of their North American tour to allow for her full recovery,” a rep for the band said in a statement to Rolling Stone.

There is no word on a replacement for May 2.
