Stevie Nicks has been forced to postpone a much-anticipated performance at Manchester's Co-Op Live venue after sustaining an injury.

Hours before being due to play at Glasgow's Hydro Arena tonight (July 6), the venue broke the news to fans that the concert had to be pushed back. The venue revealed that the iconic rock singer needed to undergo minor surgery for a 'leg injury', therefore needing some downtime.

This unexpected turn of events also means that her upcoming show in Manchester on Tuesday, July 9, will need to be rearranged. Back in March, the Fleetwood Mac star excited fans by announcing her live performance in Glasgow for this summer season.

At 75 years old, the American superstar has carved out an impressive solo career after her illustrious time with the band. Her last appearance at the Hydro was in 2015, where she performed alongside her bandmates during their On With The Show tour.

Just last week, Stevie grabbed headlines when she made an appearance at Taylor Swift's Eras Tour stop in Dublin. Swift, who has often expressed how Stevie has been a profound influence on her music, paid homage to her with a dedicated song during her performance, reports the Daily Record.

The 'Stand Back' vocalist is also set to take centre stage at BST Hyde Park later this year in London. A statement posted on X stated: "Due to a recent leg injury requiring a minor surgical procedure that will need a few days of recovery time, Stevie Nicks' scheduled performances in Glasgow Saturday 6 July and Manchester Tuesday 9 July have been postponed."

"More information will be available at point of purchase, ticketholders are advised to hold on to their tickets as rescheduled dates will be announced soon. Stevie looks forward to seeing everyone at Hyde Park in London."

Complaints soon poured in from fans who had already ventured to Glasgow for the gig. Michelle Pryde vented her frustrations on X saying, "This honestly isn't good enough. 2pm the day of? Too late to cancel hotel and I've only found out through my friend telling me as I've received no info from TM. Obviously would have known about this prior to today.."

Similarly, Alex Tait added: "This is very poor. Travel and accommodation booked and paid and now too late to cancel. This must have been known about before today."
