The Central Park, Atlanta festival, which will take place from October 22-24, had been set to welcome the Fleetwood Mac musician as their 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 last night (August 10) that Foo Fighters will now perform in Nick’s place on October 22.

Foos have been inviting their fans on stage to play ‘Monkey Wrench’ for a number of years, with one Grohl lookalike joining the band in Brisbane in January 2018 before another fan at an April 2018 gig in Austin, Texas went up on stage in full Kiss make-up.
