Stevie Nicks has canceled her performances for the rest of the year due to the current rise of coronavirus cases across the country.

The 73-year-old rock icon shared the news on Instagram Tuesday, emphasizing her need to continue taking caution with her health as she gets older.

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,” ela escreveu.

While I’m vaccinated, at my age I am still being extremely cautious and for that reason have decided to skip the five performances I had planned for 2021,” ela continuou. “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.

The former Fleetwood Mac singer added, “I’m devastated and I know the fans are disappointed, but we will look towards a brighter 2022.
