Fleetwood Mac Will Tour In 2012, According To Lindsey Buckingham
As veteran singer/guitarist Lindsey Buckingham gears up to release his new solo album ‘Seeds We Sow’ on September 6, he’s sharing some exciting new details about his planned activities, including the possibility of a reunion of Fleetwood Mac for an album and tour in 2012.
Convening the legendary group for similar activities has been a notoriously difficult task in the past, something that Buckingham himself acknowledges in a new interview with Rolling Stone.
He says that with Fleetwood Mac, “there's a lot of landmines out there politically and it's hard to get everybody on the same page at the same time – but I think this might be one of those years where everyone will want to do the same thing.”
He compares the experience of working with a group as being similar to what he envisions the movie making process is like: “It's political and it takes a lot of verbalization to get from point A to point B.”
Buckingham is careful to note that there’s “nothing on the books right now” in regards to that potential Mac reunion, but says “we’re doing something for sure,” and he “wouldn’t be shocked if it was a tour and possibly an album.”
His longtime Mac bandmate Stevie Nicks spoke positively of the reunion possibilities herself recently, saying that Fleetwood Mac “is always there,” indicating that further activity was a good possibility after she and Buckingham wrap up their current individual promotional activities.
Fans of the ‘Buckingham/Nicks’ album, the pre-Fleetwood Mac project featuring the duo, will be happy to know that the long-talked about reissue of that coveted release is still on Buckingham's mind. As he says: "It's been a victim of inertia. We have every intention of putting that album back out and possibly even doing something along with it, but I can't put any specifics on that."
An official digital release for the album, the legend of which has grown over the years thanks to circulating bootlegs, would be welcomed by fans. Buckingham says that it would be great to tour as a duo behind the release, but that it’s all just “speculation” for the moment.
Buckingham will hit the road solo in September for two months’ worth of tour dates. You can plot out your concert calendar plans by finding the show nearest you right here.
