The Central Park, Atlanta festival, which will take place from October 22-24, had been set to welcome the Fleetwood Mac musician as its Friday night headliner.
However, Nicks cancelled her Shaky Knees slot this week along with her other 2021 gigs, citing concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.
Telling her fans that she was “devastated” to have to make the decision, Nicks said: “I want everyone to be safe and healthy, and the rising COVID cases [in the US] should be of concern to all of us.” The artist added that she is now looking “towards a brighter 2022”.
Shaky Knees confirmed Tuesday night (August 10) that Foo Fighters will now perform in Nicks’ place on October 22.
The festival, which will also see headline slots from Run The Jewels and The Strokes, has also added Garbage, The Collection and Glove to their 2021 line-up.
