Fleetwood Mac halt gig after drummer falls ill

Fleetwood Mac have been forced to cut short a concert in Nebraska by about an hour after drummer Mick Fleetwood suddenly became ill.

Stevie Nicks told the crowd of about 14,000 at Lincoln’s Pinnacle Bank Arena that Fleetwood, 67, was sick backstage before the end of the 90-minute show.

A drum technician played Go Your Own Way for Fleetwood, then Christine McVie played the piano and sang Songbird with guitarist Lindsey Buckingham before the band ended the show.

Fleetwood Mac said they planned to perform their next scheduled show in Grand Rapids, Michigan, tomorrow.
