There is promotion around it, interviews etc. FM....their US promotion was laughable and exposed the lie. UK promotion was pretty close to non existent save for rolling out NF and MF. And the AUS/NZ promotion makes it seem like Crowded House is on tour with special guests from FM and TPH. And Stevie is no where to be found in any interviews. That's unheard of for any prior tours. It's like they relying more on their loyal Instagram followers to do the marketing for them. Looking forward to them hobbling towards the sunset now.

I suspect that they didn't anticipate the blow back they got. Tickets did sell but I wouldn't say this tour was a smashing success. They sold a million tickets this tour. I wonder how many they sold last tour in 2014-2015? Likely just as many if not more since Christine was back.

It's insane.

Fleetwood Mac helped me through a time of heartbreak. 12 years later, they broke my heart.

2014-2015 Was #2 on the Touring acts list when Christine came back.

Iím done with Fmac because no matter how you cut it, they are not the same without Lindsey, Iíll play their old stuff.
But, I wonít go to another concert, and certainly wonít buy any more music, even if there was any.
It has taken me a long time to get my head round this, but theyíre done.

Iíve been a fan since 1967 when they were a British blues band...and Iíve loved them for 50 odd years, but Iím not interested in them anymore.

I donít think they would have been much different if Lindsey hadnít been forced out, they would not have had a swan song Album...yes we know why.
They would just have toured every other year, so thatís that.
Makes me want to cry.

This year I have been married 50 years and we do loads of new stuff all the time. (That doesnít have to cost the earth)
Just because you get a little older, doesnít mean you dry up and become desiccated....just different.
And thatís what they should have done, grown old gracefully (or not)
but at least grown older together....

Agreed.

Answer, sadly, is greed.
