Fleetwood Mac announce UK and European shows

Fleetwood Mac have announced a series of spring 2019 dates in the UK and Europe.

The band will perform shows in Berlin, Germany, Dublin, Ireland and London, UK in early June (see dates below) with their newly-revamped lineup featuring Mike Campbell of Tom Petty’s band and Neil Finn of Crowded House/Split Enz fame in place of longtime guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, following his firing earlier this year.

“We are thrilled to welcome the musical talents of the caliber of Mike Campbell and Neil Finn into the Mac family,” says the band. “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.”

Tickets for the three concerts will go on sale starting on Friday, October 26 at 9am local time.

The new dates will follow the completion of Fleetwood Mac’s current trek across North America, which will wrap up in early April.

The veteran classic rock outfit have been making headlines over the Buckingham dismissal, with the rocker filing a lawsuit against his former group for breach of fiduciary duty, breach of oral contract and intentional interference with prospective economic advantage, among other charges, whilc claiming plans were already in place for the “Rumours”-era lineup to play 60 shows across North America when he was let go without warning.

“Fleetwood Mac looks forward to their day in court,” said band spokesperson Kristen Foster.
