She said STTW is in her top list songs. I think that song's problem is the producer. Why he thought that needed to sound like a Calvin Harris or Zedd song

I just can't see that at this point. She truly hates Lindsey bitter old harridan that she is .
Hi Bombay, fyi, somebody on Twitter may've taken your post to Twitter and done some revision... unless this is you!

“What great misinformation if it's not true, but if it is true what a treat for frenz in NZ, Crowded House with special guest Stevie Nicks”



Not if he wants to stay in Fleetwood Mac.

Nah that kid looks young enough to be my grandson. It seems like he did cut and paste part of my post though. I guess I should be flattered.

A tour of New Zealand is literally 4 cities that could support a major production - Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin. It would make no economic sense unless you can do Australia as well.

Also, I really don't think staying in Fleetwood Mac is a major going concern for Neil. He got a good payday and acquitted himself as well as could be expected given the circumstances. Fleetwood Mac is never going to make new music with him as a frontman and likely no future touring. See ya Mick, thanks for giving me a great year!

yeah i thought it was odd too as I know that New Zealand has roughly the population of Kentucky so unless they just wanted to perform live for the sake of it Anyway the source of the information is a guitar luthier in L.A. who is also apparently the son of the late and great Elizabeth Montgomery so who knows

OTOH, they only played five European dates in 2019, which is the same number of shows they played in New Zealand (four in Auckland and one Dunedin). So, maybe it makes complete financial sense.

Okay. I remember that William Asher was the producer(and her husband). I didn't know their son was a luthier.
She was so much cooler than Jeannie!

Europe from the US is a lot cheaper endeavor than NZ and they had the large stadium shows in Europe as well, but indeed it was an odd choice to play so few.
From Europe everything gets routed to Australia where over a dozen dates can be played. That is how each of the last two FM tours have justified NZ. As a stand-alone tour, I don't see the New Zealand whisper having much validity.

But hey, they can do what they want, a NZ tour has zero impact on me.

I think Crowded House is doing a NZ tour now. I believe Neil and his kids live in California.

I think Stevie did an 06 tour of NZ with John Farnham and maybe a few shows in NZ with Dave.

Also for Mac in Europe 2019, Werchter and PinkPop festivals probably made the small 6 date tour all worth it, in addition to the Wembley gigs.

What's a shame is that they didn't make the setlist special for the Wembley shows. So lazy

Hypothetically, if they get a $150,000 guarantee for a show (which seems low for Stevie Nicks and Crowded House in New Zealand), can do ten shows (four in Auckland, two everywhere else), and it costs $50,000 for a round trip (random high number), they’d still make more than enough to justify it. Stevie wouldn’t be bringing her crew, and the musicians would probably use backline equipment, save for guitars and a snare/random percussion.
