PHOENIX – Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer/songwriter Stevie Nicks has postponed her Thursday appearance in her hometown because of illness to November, promoters said.

(UPDATE: The concert was rescheduled for Nov. 5.)

Nicks and singer/songwriter Vanessa Carlton were scheduled to play Phoenix’s Ak-Chin Pavilion, but the facility said in a social media post Wednesday that Nicks was following doctor’s orders “for vocal rest.”

The 74-year-old was diagnosed with a non-COVID respiratory ailment. She played a show in Los Angeles on Monday night.

Ak-Chin Pavilion said it would honor all previously purchased tickets on the new date and that ticket holders would be emailed with updates.

Nicks, who is the only woman inducted in the Hall of Fame twice – with iconic band Fleetwood Mac and as a solo artist – returned to live performances in May after a two-year hiatus.

She canceled a handful of 2021 appearances scheduled at music festivals last August, citing the coronavirus pandemic.

Nicks is known for singing and writing hits such as “Stand Back, “Stop Dragging My Heart Around,” “Rhiannon,” “Gypsy” and “Leather and Lace.”
