Fleetwood Mac replaces Lindsey Buckingham with Neil Finn, Mike Campbell ahead of farewell tour

Fleetwood Mac has brought on Neil Finn and Mike Campbell to replace Lindsey Buckingham as the group gears up for a farewell tour.

Rolling Stone reported that Buckingham, who joined with Stevie Nicks in 1974, was fired from Fleetwood Mac following a disagreement over the tour. Campbell, of Tom Petty &The Heartbreakers, and Finn, of Crowded House, will replace him.

“Fleetwood Mac has always been about an amazing collection of songs that are performed with a unique blend of talents,” Mick Fleetwood said in a statement, according to Variety. “We jammed with Mike and Neil and the chemistry really worked and let the band realize 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.” 

Finn confirmed he was joining the group on Twitter, saying, “Snow warnings for parts of the country, the mystery of Stonehenge solved and yes I’ve joined Fleetwood Mac.”

“We are thrilled to welcome the musical talents of the caliber of Mike Campbell and Neil Finn into the Mac family,” the group said in a joint statement. “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.

“Lindsey Buckingham will not be performing with the band on this tour. The band wishes Lindsey all the best.”

Variety reported that final dates for the group’s farewell tour will be announced soon.

Fleetwood Mac announces tour dates, discusses Lindsey Buckingham departure

Fleetwood Mac has announced dates for its 2018 North American tour, weeks after the firing of Lindsey Buckingham.

The band replaced Buckingham with Crowded House’s Neil Finn and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ Mike Campbell, according to an April 9 statement

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

“Lindsey Buckingham will not be performing with the band on this tour. The band wishes Lindsey all the best.”

According to the majority of the rock band -- Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood -- Buckingham’s departure came from a scheduling conflict over a world tour.

“We were supposed to go into rehearsal in June and he wanted to put it off until November (2019),” Nicks told Rolling Stone in an interview published Wednesday. “That’s a long time. I just did 70 shows. As soon as I finish one thing, I dive back into another. Why would we stop?”

Instead, after meeting a month ago, the band decided to replace Buckingham and will go on a 52-date North American tour.

Rolling Stone reported that the group isn’t willing to say Buckingham was fired, per se.

“Words like ‘fired’ are ugly references as far as I’m concerned,” Fleetwood said. “Not to hedge around, but we arrived at the impasse of hitting a brick wall. This was not a happy situation for us in terms of the logistics of a functioning band. To that purpose, we made a decision that we could not go on with him. Majority rules in terms of what we need to do as a band and go forward.”

“Our relationship has always been volatile. We were never married, but we might as well have been,” Nicks said. “This is sad for me, but I want the next 10 years of my life to be really fun and happy. I want to get up every day and dance around my apartment and smile and say, ‘Thank God for this amazing life.’”
