The revamped Fleetwood Mac is going strong into 2019, with the band just adding six Australian dates for next August and September. As it stands now, the Mac will be Down Under just short of a month and now have dates on the books for Perth, Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne. There's been no word yet on any further shows or a quick pop over to New Zealand.
Fleetwood Mac kicks off its 2019 shows on January 31st at Denver's Pepsi Center and will be on the road through April in North America. This spring's upcoming European dates mark the group's first without guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, who was replaced by Heartbreaker Mike Campbell and Crowded House leader Neil Finn.
Back in 2012 during a Q&A at the Hamptons International Film Festival, Stevie Nicks touched upon some of her longtime issues with Lindsey Buckingham: ["I mean, obviously, I didn't go out with that guy, 'cause he was, like, a jerk. I went out with him 'cause he was gorgeous, and he had a beautiful smile, and a wonderful laugh, and he was a lot of fun. . . in the beginning (laughter, applause). And then, like men and women do, they get possessive, and consuming, and all-powerful, and wanting to run the show completely. Either you let me drive with you or I'm not gonna do it."] SOUNDCUE (:24 OC: . . . gonna do it)
