The festival announced that the Jazz Fest appearance was cancelled due to lead singer Stevie Nicks becoming ill on Twitter. Later they revealed that Widespread Panic would replace Fleetwood Mac at the performance May 2.

The Rolling Stones were originally set to perform at the festival, but had to cancel due to concerns over Mick Jagger’s health. (RELATED: Mick Jagger Reportedly Doing Well Post Heart Surgery)

Jagger successfully underwent a non-invasive heart valve procedure April 4 and is currently in recovery. The band has postponed its “No Filter” tour, but has already been working to reschedule the canceled appearances.

“Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I’m feeling much better now and on the mend,” Jagger shared in a statement following the surgery. “And also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job.”
