Fleetwood Mac has rescheduled its spring stops, which were postponed due to Stevie Nicks' battle with the flu. The new dates now on the books include an October 28th leg opener at Boston's TD Garden, with stops in Quebec City, Toronto, Philadelphia, Winnipeg, and Calgary, before wrapping things up on November 12th in Edmonton.

JamBase.com posted: "All tickets for the old dates will be honored at these new rescheduled dates. Additionally, new tickets will be put up for sale for these shows. Tickets for the Quebec City concert go up for grabs next Friday, April 26th at 10 a.m. local time."

Mick Fleetwood -- the sole member of the group to have played in all its configurations -- told us that being on the road is second nature to bands like Fleetwood Mac once they get into their groove: "Once you're a road dog, you're a road dog. Elton John, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Bruce Springsteen -- God knows, they don't need the money, but they're out there touring. Your whole adult life has been doing this, and once you get back into it for any length of time, I think the theory is that you actually really enjoy it and you say, 'Well, there's another stretch of someone wants to book the band.'"

A highlight on the Stand Back set Nicks' first solo hit, 1981's "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around." A while back Stevie Nicks told us that she always felt a particular kinship with Tom Petty and his music: "Tom is my favorite writer, 'cause I kinda feel if I had come into this word as a boy, I would've been him, y'know? It's like I really do, I feel that there's a part of Tom's writing that I relate so easily to."

Fleetwood Mac will next perform on June 8th in Werchter, Belgium.
