What she has done is completely reinvent her approach to her live solo performance in a stunning way. To me that is just as, if not more, interesting than trying to pretend FM is a real band that can put together meaningful music when they have no authentic connection any longer. I find the idea of another FM album to be just as nostalgia based as anything else. I think what Stevie is doing on this tour is very creative and, for me, magical.

EDIT: sorry, I'm new. I'm not trying to steer into FM talk. I'm trying to talk about Stevie in context of the discussion in this thread.
I think your point of view is refreshing.
Yes, both Stevie and the other band members have reached a point in their age and careers in which they simply are nostalgia acts and there's nothing bad about it, it doesn't even depend on producing new music or albums or touring or not, it's just normal for all things to become like this.
Who knows, maybe fans can't accept it because it reflects their becoming nostalgic and old in real their life?

Buckingham and McVie are releasing a new album soon. If it is, as I expect, good quality stuff, then that makes them more than just a nostalgia act.

I was listening to the obituaries for Chuck Berry on the radio and they said that he had an upcoming release with mainly new music and I thought, "Huh??"

But if it really is new and not just something that his record company is pulling out of the vault from 40 years ago to capitalize on his death, then I am really surprised and appreciate that.

I started a thread with the release date for the Tango Deluxe edition, but it was deleted. I also asked if people were planning to buy it and if so, which one- the 2 CD edition or the vinyl/cd/dvd edition. Hopefully that's ok to ask on this board. I would still like to know which edition folks are planning to buy, or if they're going to skip it.

That's not the point. The meaning of Nostalgia is emotional longing or regret for what is passed or distant. Simply our heroes aren't current or present artists anymore but their identity and value is now cast in stone in their past.

I agree 100% but that would be a B/M album - not nostalgia but also not FM. Sorry for saying BM. I'm personally thrilled to hear what B/M has for us - a lifeless Stevie addition would take away from the experience. I love everything that's going on - a revitalized solo Stevie and what seems to be great stuff from B/M. We are very lucky.

There is no need to have that post in the Stevie thread. There's a post about the Tango release in the Rumours thread. If you don't want to post in the Rumours thread, that is fine. But don't start a duplicate thread about the FM release here.

She is getting full houses and loads of critical acclaim on this tour and got lots of critical acclaim and decent sales for 24KG considering it had zero promotion. She needs to do a 24KG 2 to cement her legacy as a legend.
