Fleetwood Mac announce 2019 European shows and Wembley Stadium gig

Article from NME
Fleetwood Mac have announced details of European tour dates for summer 2019 – including a huge stop at London’s iconic Wembley Stadium.

The classic rock veterans are currently touring with a new line-up after guitarist Lindsey Bucking was sacked back in April due to “scheduling conflicts”. The line-up now features Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell and Crowded House frontman Neil Finn, as well as the band’s own Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie, and Mick Fleetwood.

After a number of US performances, now the band have dates in Berlin, Dublin and London.

“Fleetwood Mac has always been about an amazing collection of songs that are performed with a unique blend of talents,” said Mick Fleetwood. “We jammed with Mike and Neil and the chemistry really worked and let the band realise that this is the right combination to go forward with in Fleetwood Mac style.

“We know we have something new, yet it’s got the unmistakable Mac sound.”

A full band statement added: “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,” said the group collectively. “Fleetwood Mac has always been a creative evolution. We look forward to honouring that spirit on this upcoming tour.”

Fleetwood Mac’s upcoming UK and European tour dates are below. Tickets are on sale here from 9am on Friday October 26.

It was recently revealed that Lindsey Buckingham had begun legal proceedings against the band following his firing.

Buckingham’s manager informed the musician that Fleetwood Mac “would proceed with its upcoming and already organised 2018 to 2019 concert tour without him”, and that “not a single member of the band” had spoken to him directly about the decision.

Buckingham has now decided to sue his former bandmates for “fiduciary duty, breach of oral contract and intentional interference with prospective economic advantage”.

Responding, the band’s spokesperson Kristen Foster has disputed his claims, adding: “Fleetwood Mac looks forward to their day in court.”

Meanwhile, Fleetwood Mac were among the acts rumoured to be headlining Glastonbury 2019 – however organiser Emily Eavis has since insisted that they have not been booked.
