Again, how you interpret the tone of my posts isn’t my responsibility. There was no personal attack and no harassing comment. I’m pretty sure people are tiring of your constant stream of character assassinations.

And I'll share with you that my view is that Stevie's hitmaking resume didn't change from 2007 to 2017.
Who said anything about her hitmaking resume? Her boost in popularity had little to do with her music.

I'll bet this will be pleasing to you: Lindsey solo, Mick solo, or John solo - all individuals who released solo music - could not fill those venues
Why would that be pleasing to me? Why does it matter? In my dream world, John McVie would have a side band that was almost as big as Fleetwood Mac. Kind of like Mike & The Mechanics. But, John would rather be sailing.

I think one answer would be promotion. Was 94/95 marketed as aggressively as the 97 tour?
Of course not. Nobody was going to sink a lot of money promoting a version of Fleetwood Mac that didn’t have Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, and Lindsey Buckingham. Also, they didn’t have an album out, since “Time” was released six weeks after their last tour date. AND, the “Live At The BBC” set, which was released a month before “Time” got considerably more promotion than “Time” got.
On and on it will always be, the rhythm, rhyme, and harmony.
