Legendary co-founder of Fleetwood Mac, Mick Fleetwood, confirmed the unfortunate news that his restaurant, Fleetwoods on Front St., fell victim to the destructive Maui wildfires.
In a heartfelt message on X (formerly Twitter), the 76-year-old musician expressed his condolences to the community and emphasized the top priority of ensuring the safety of his restaurant’s staff.
“Maui and the Lahaina community have been my home for several decades. This is a devastating moment for Maui, and many are suffering unimaginable loss,” the drummer’s statement read.
He further stated, “Fleetwood’s on Front Street has been lost and while we are heartbroken, our main priority is the safety of our dear staff and team members. On behalf of myself and my family, I share my heartfelt thoughts and prayers for the people of Maui. We are committed to supporting the community and those affected by this disaster in the days and months and years to come.”
Fleetwood’s on Front Street was a beloved Maui establishment, renowned for its American cuisine and a scenic rooftop bar boasting ocean views. The restaurant’s website now bears a notice indicating its closure until further notice.
The establishment’s staff took to Instagram to address the situation, writing, “We do not have enough information at this time regarding Fleetwoods on Front St or any of our neighbors to share. Mahalo for your continued thoughts and prayers for our ohana, community and our first responders.”
