Lindsey Buckingham postpones European tour due to COVID-19

Lindsey Buckingham has postponed his upcoming European tour after he and other members of his live entourage contracted COVID-19.

The two-week run was set to open in Dublin, Ireland on May 17 and be followed by a series of three UK shows before travelling across the continent for another six events and wrapping up with an appearance at Denmark’s Heartland Festival on June 2.

“It is with great sadness that we are announcing the postponement of Lindsey’s European tour which had been due to begin next week,” shared his team on social media. “Along with other members of his band and crew, Lindsey contracted Covid-19 at the end of his latest North American tour, forcing that to end prematurely. Unfortunately he’s still recovering and has no choice but to move the upcoming tour to a later date.

“This is heartbreaking for Lindsey, he was so excited to come to Europe for the first time as a solo artist this spring. We’re currently working on rescheduling the dates and hope to have some news to share on that very soon.”

Buckingham is touring in support of his self-titled 2021 album, which the guitarist produced and recorded at his home studio in Los Angeles over the past few years, after being fired from his longtime gig with Fleetwood Mac in 2018. See also:
