"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," Nicks wrote on Twitter.

"While I'm vaccinated, at my age, I am still being extremely cautious and for that reason have decided to skip the 5 performances I had planned for 2021," she added. "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."

"I'm devastated and I know the fans are disappointed, but we will look towards a brighter 2022," Nicks said.

Nicks was to perform at Jazz Aspen Festival in Colorado and BottleRock Napa Valley over Labor Day Weekend in September, along with both weekends of Austin City Limits Music Festival and New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in October.
