I'd be surprised if there wasn't one. If the tour sells decently enough they'll probably end up playing most of the international shows they usually do.

At the fundraiser event from a while back, a few fans who went said he told them he plans on touring in the fall. But considering that it's mid-July now and nothing has even gotten close to being announced, I think it's possible that situation has changed.

That's a bummer. I don't know what your budget is but have you checked out CheapoAir? Unfortunately the Sacramento date is around Thanksgiving and that can be a horribly expensive time to fly here.

Hmmm, I was talking about losses on both sides of FM people, not fans.

I have no idea who you are but fans wanting Lindsey back on FM has nothing to do with their only chance of seeing him. As far as we know it could be the only chance for all of us, and I still say: "no, thank you".

Fans trashing Stevie and then waiting for Lindsey to return to FM so they could pay big bucks to see him and also her and Mick by association makes no sense to me. To you maybe, but not to me.

It has nothing to do with international fans. Many of them traveled last year to see Stevie but not Lindsey and Christine. And many of them won't see the band ever again, with or without Lindsey.

Why waste your time blaming Stevie and Mick if you will see them again in concert if Lindsey returns one day?

I can already picture what Mick would say. "Fleetwood Mac has always been an Australian band, from day one."
SOLD TO AUS/NZ--You can have em.

I think the iheart radio gig in September will be the litmus test for the real reception of the karaoke spectacle they look to be evolving into . if US ticket sales pick up post, there may be a shot at some international exposure. Otherwise, I really think this has the risk of being a one shot US only tour.

Didn't like that Karoake either, but really don't want to see a fake FM. I bet if they do a concert video we will get those EXTREMELY cheesy Stevie closeups that were CRINGE inducing on the Shake the Cage tour. OMFG was it embarrassing. LB would have never let that happen, but happen it will with tambourine b/witch now in charge.

So don’t see Stretch.

Just like her Red Rocks video. Like we wouldn’t notice her hair, makeup, and wardrobe changed? I mean, if she’s the reason why they were popular, shouldn’t she also be blamed for why they became unpopular, these videos as primary evidence????

The worst.

No, he just made a Fleetwood Mac album, let it be credited to a different entity, went along with the whole duet album story, used a ton of prerecorded backing tracks during concerts, and admitted he was just doing Fleetwood Mac shows for the money. Yeah, that’s way better.

Probably not. BUT,LB and CM ARE FM. And old.

Tom Petty's Crowded House ain't FM.

You love supporting this lineup. We get it. We get it. We get it. We get it. We get it.


Btw, we get it.

Yeah, he probably should have lied like all those a**holes that used to be his bandmates. Maybe he would be in a better place right now.

And that different entity was courtesy of sweet liar Stevie. I bet she wasnít expecting it and thatís the only reason why I still love LBCM.

Just like we really get you don’t support it. I’m just giving some balance. I don’t “love” it. “It” hasn’t even happened, yet. It could be awful. It won’t be, at least not because of the new guys. Bob Welch wasn’t FM in 1971 and Lindsey and Stevie weren’t FM in 1975. It becomes something, and my curiosity is strong.

What would the upcoming tour have had with Lindsey that would make it worthwhile without new material? “Let’s play THIS song from ‘Tusk…’" Unless it was a farewell tour, what compelling reason would there be to go? I agree it’s OGB’s fault, but I also get the equation. Old FM songs, maybe something new, perhaps my favorite pop song of the 80s, and a great guitarist. It could be much worse.

Probably wouldnít be out of a gig. But when was playing along with karaoke ever honest?

She should have been fired back in 2005. Iím not a Stevie fan, and I get the feeling you think because my name used to be Steve MacDougall that your Stevie digs are somehow offensive to me. Rest assured, they are not. I am not a Stevie fan or a Lindsey fan. Mick, John, and Christine are my interests with this band.
