Aussies and Kiwis were both dismayed to hear that Fleetwood Mac had canceled the tours set up for their countries, but the band had a very good reason: bass player John McVie was diagnosed with cancer.
Amazingly, just three months later, they hit the stage to play a show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Dec. 30! They even followed that up with a private NYE concert… with another private show scheduled for Jan. 8! Busy busy!
Stevie Nicks told ABC Radio right before the NYE show that she thought performing would be "really good for John."
Still, McVie, 68, has not talked about the diagnosis OR the type of cancer he has! The fast return to the stage seems like a good sign, though!
We hope everything is okay — or is going as well as it can be, John! You'll get through this!

Nope, those ain’t Rumours! Those are FACTS!
Singer-songwriter Vanessa Carlton got married over the weekend to her boyfriend John McCauley of the band Deer Tick!
And just look at who officiated their outside ceremony!
K. Best. Officiant. EVER!
33-year-old Vanessa shared the big news with her Twitter followers along with a photo, saying:
"Married this gentleman two hours ago xo.”
The A Thousand Miles singer also thanked Miz Nicks, writing:
This Glee actress has been slowly exposing those who've helped her since the unfortunate passing of her co-star and boyfriend Cory Monteith…
But now, Lea Michele is revealing how an unlikely connection ended up being one of her biggest supporters and caregivers.
Stevie Nicks, the original white witch and front woman to Fleetwood Mac, swooped in to Lea's rescue as soon as she heard the news of Cory's death.
According to Miz Michele, Stevie sent kind notes and words of encouragement immediately:
She was invited back, and her episode hasn't even air yet?!
We know the white witch's #1 fan Misty Day is more than thrilled! Ha!
In a new interview with EW, Ryan Murphy gushed Stevie Nicks might be his favorite part of American Horror Story: Coven—so much so, he's taking one of her ideas and featuring it on ANOTHER episode this season!
We know Miz Nicks will appear on ep. 10 as a means to bribe Misty into the coven, but Ryan revealed the Fleetwood Mac singer's second coming was all on her own accord:
"We have Stevie for another. Stevie will be in episode 10 and then we have Stevie for another one, doing an idea that she came up with that I thought was too perfect to say no to. Hilariously, Stevie read some of the scripts and called up and said “Are you aware that one of the things you’re doing I actually wrote a song about?” I’m like, “You’ve got to be kidding.” Then I remembered the song. We have something cool that was her idea."
Wonder what song ties into the voodoo vs. witch war perfectly?!
Rhiannon, Sara and Leather and Lace…
The possibilities are bewitchingly endless!
