Written by RockSport Radio on April 10, 2018
Lindsey Buckingham has parted ways with Fleetwood Mac following an apparent dispute over the legendary band’s upcoming world tour.
Fleetwood Mac have confirmed in a statement that Crowded House’s Neil Finn and Mike Campbell, former lead guitarist of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, will now replace Lindsey for their yet-to-be-announced tour dates.
An initial statement from the band simply read: “Lindsey Buckingham will not be performing with the band on this tour. The band wishes Lindsey all the best.”
A more expansive statement later issued to Rolling Stone reads: “We are thrilled to welcome the musical talents of the caliber of Mike Campbell and Neil Finn into the Mac family.
“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.”
