At the end of the day, I'd still die to know what Christine REALLY thinks of this entire situation.

I suspect she feels duped.

I haven’t heard much of this tour at all...BUT...
Stevie sounds like a Pub singer, and a bad pub singer at that..

The lack of publicity for what is potentially a “farewell” tour is shocking

Why waste the time, money, and energy on publicity when the shows have been close to sell outs?

On With the Show was close to sell out too. They publicized that. Before you say the return of Christine was the reason for that, I will say if this is their farewell tour, it's just as newsworthy, or should be under normal circumstances. And also--The Legacy of a Great Band---why would you not publicize the history, all of it.

They haven’t said it’s their farewell tour. Mick shot that down a couple of years ago. I realize it’s optimistic/naive to think it can go on much longer, but they’re not on that page, yet.

I agree with this. It would be nice for them to promote the new retrospective and tie it into the tour. I suspect legal has been keeping them away from the press.

Would hope post the settlement they could all speak. Makes me wonder what else is out there, potentially, we don't know about.

Youngest guy in the Rumours 5 just had open heart surgery. They've all got one foot on a banana peel at this point. I can't imagine (but am always surprised by this crew) they can do much more together after this. Particularly if Stevie (and I am not saying this to insight fury in the masses) holds them to the 3 year break between tours.

Either she will ignore LB's illness or she will make it ALL about HER.

Supposedly the band has known about it for a few days but waited to comment until the family released a statement. No wonder Stevie was extra animated on thursday. Dancing around and way over the top happy. That's what I heard and it's really gross.

It's a job !!! People come over to have a great time .. you just have to perform ... it has NOTHING to do with being happy about this situation ... I'm pretty sure she isn't ... all other thoughts are just in your head ... seek help !!!

Back in 2013 I was at the last show in Amsterdam before they had to cancel the Aussie-tour due to John's illness ... minutes before the show I read the news on the internet on my phone ... and they knew it as well ... they just delivered a great show ... it's wat they do for a living ...

None of whom were Lindsey Buckingham.

I forgot what we were discussing. I'm currently fighting with FB friends over the liberal bias on CNN.
