Fleetwood Mac Will Tour Next Year
Fleetwood Mac will tour next year and everyone is onboard EXCEPT Christine McVie. She hasn’t been part of the band since 1998. At this point, no one seems to have any idea how or when it will come together.
Mick Fleetwood says, quote, “We’re so disorganized as a band, I don’t know what to tell you. All we know is we’re working next year.
“We leave everything [until] way too late. But we’re all up for touring in the early summer of next year, I think, and once we start we’re much like U2 and the Rolling Stones in terms of workload.
“We basically play until no one wants to book us anymore.”
Lindsey Buckingham says “there’s been talk about doing another album,” but adds that it wouldn’t happen before the tour. He hopes the band will have “three or four new songs” before they hit the road, and continue working on stuff while on tour.
Mick is cool with that. He says they played a lot of deep cuts on their last tour in 2009, and the fans seemed to dig it.
He says, quote, “We actually had a ball really delving into our portfolio of songs and pulling out a few songs that weren’t necessarily super, super well-known, and to us they felt like new songs . . . and [the fans] loved it.
“We are blessed with having so much [music] that, in theory, we never stand a chance of being bored because even though the songs are 30 years old or more, there are so many of them that [we] have never played on stage.”
Fleetwood Mac’s last concert in Lubbock was in 2003. Did you go to that show?
