Fleetwood Mac have introduced an enormous North American tour, with dates from October via April 2019. The band just lately parted methods with longtime guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. In his place, former Tom Petty guitarist Mike Campbell and Crowded House’s Neil Finn be part of the lineup of Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, and John and Christine McVie. Find the total dates on Fleetwood Mac’s website.
Speaking about Buckingham to Rolling Stone, Stevie Nicks mentioned, ““`Our relationship has always been volatile. We were never married, but we might as well have been. Some couples get divorced after 40 years. They break their kids’ hearts and destroy everyone around them because it’s just hard. This is sad for me, but I want the next 10 years of my life to be really fun and happy. I want to get up every day and dance around my apartment and smile and say, ‘Thank God for this amazing life.’”
Mick Fleetwood added, “`“Words like ‘fired’ are ugly references as far as I’m concerned. Not to hedge around, but we arrived at the impasse of hitting a brick wall. This was not a happy situation for us in terms of the logistics of a functioning band. To that purpose, we made a decision that we could not go on with him. Majority rules in term of what we need to do as a band and go forward.”
In a press launch, the group mentioned, “We are thrilled to welcome the musical talents of the caliber of Mike Campbell and Neil Finn into the Mac family. With Mike and Neil, we’ll be performing all the hits that the fans love, plus we’ll be surprising our audiences with some tracks from our historic catalogue of songs. Fleetwood Mac has always been a creative evolution. We look forward to honoring that spirit on this upcoming tour.”
