The real question here is WHO is stupid enough to pay $600 to meet that loser?

For $300 you can get a front row seat to Lindsey Buckingham, autographed poster, CD collection, leather booklet, and a meet and greet.


Now tell me, which has the greater value

I wouldn’t pay more than $100 to meet any musician at a show, and that would have to include a ticket and some swag.

how much was your Canton ticket? i think mine was $85 plus fees, so about $100, ticket and a CD.

i don't like swag, just clutters my house, but i guess i'll take it for the shows where i'm doing LB m&g - which i have absolutely no problem with paying for; he has been extremely gracious to me in the past, randomly stopped and talked many times. i also had m&gs with him in the past and again, Mick's cannot compare. LB is engaging and warm to fans; there's a reason why so many people on social media stand so firmly behind him now, and not just for the music.

I think mine was $72. I usually go for cheap seats.

I’m sure he is. Mick was gracious when I met him, but it was after a club show with The Zoo in 1992. Bekka was the real sweetheart. I’ve also met Peter Green, and that was…interesting, to say the least.

Now tell me, which has the greater value
of course, unlike Mick's that apparently nobody's buying (surprise surprise!) considering we all got multiple emails from dear Mick, Lindsey's m&gs are now sold out for every show he has, i believe. and most were sold out within first few hours of presale.

so people clearly voted on where the value is.

i will laugh when we see pics from Mick's m&gs with 2 people per m&g or the cancelled ones. that happened every time he had m&gs that didn't come with good tix (like GA shows) at the last 2 FM tours. whoever is setting this up for Mick or is giving him advice must be a complete moron.

The value of these Meet & Greets will always be subjective. What's a good value for one person might not be for another. There's no reason to be disparaging to the fan or artist.

The thought crossed my mind to pay $600 to be given only 20 seconds to tell Mick that the firing of Lindsey Buckingham in 2018 is the WORST stunt that this band has EVER pulled! I would also request that he let The High Priestess know that Fleetwood Mac's artistic integrity is dead.

After my statement--No picture, no autograph, just walk away.

"$600" + "$60" service fee?

Why not round it up to "$666" and be done with it?
