Okay, I'll re-phrase that...
Paying $600 to meet somebody and get their photograph (on top of the price of a ticket which could be about the same) is an idiotic action.

I don't want to call people idiots, but this is a place to express an opinion and in my opinion paying that sort of money is idiotic. Indeed, I'd never want to meet anyone who charged me for the privilege of doing so. Therefore, lets just say the action of doing that is idiotic.
Yes, I can afford it. But I'd rather not, thanks.

I doubted it ever since they announced this tour with Mike ad Neil.

So I ought a concertticket rightaway and 'll fly to New York from Holland in march to see this tour.

If they'll tour Europe, I think it'll be announced end of the year.

Less money to be made.
Average price will be around 100 euro's (106 dollars) for General Admission (I paid that in 2015) and then you'll be upfront if you're early at te venue. Although The Stones charged me 200 euro's last year).

I personally really enjoyed that show.
Yes, but that was at their height with Tango in the Night and in the slipstream BTM.

Mick needs to squeeze out every last possible penny while he's got the chance because after this, that's it.... back to being a restauranteur and Rick Vito's side man for his final years.
Preach! Hahaha. I sat next to a bunch of really friendly first timers at United Center and the couple on the side of me spoke to me at length after the show to ask what I thought. (Trying to our into words what was missing without LB was HARD. But these folks were happy with the show while I was feeling the lack of Lindsey ache). Anyway the guy then says something to me about how itís just a six month tour and Iím like ďNoooot a chance. Theyíll extend this. Mick is massively money hungry and terrible at managing his money.Ē

Trying to explain to more casual fans how I love this band, am simultaneously mad them, and have mad respect for their music but can real talk about them all as actual people was... an experience. But Iím so glad Iím amongst my people here. Haha.

Iím still giggling too that while United Center was dang near close to sold out TicketMaster was still pushing the Mick Fleetwood meet and greet package even on resale tickets. Guess thatís not going over too well.

First two shows seem to have filled in well. It's early yet, but I hope you folks across the pond that are keeping your fingers crossed get some joy.

I'm really torn. If they come here I really don't want to go. At the same time its like rubber necking at a crash site. I really don't want to look but can't stop myself.
I really hope Lindsey comes here. I think that might be a pipe dream but I would really love to go and see him. If anyone's been to LB m&G's- has he suggested what the future might be for his tour?

Why doesn't the Tango deluxe box contain the 1987 Fresno radio concert?

Looking at last tours they were announced for Europe in November for concerts taking place the next year always in june and july. For 2019 they were rumoured to play Glastonbury and Pinkpop festival. But this was before Lindsey left.
On The last tour they played Amsterdam 2 times. Iím sure there will a be a European leg and i think it will be announced before december......

In the Lindsey Buckingham court documents it states FM planned on touring Europe, Australia & NZ. so I'd have to say your answer is YES.

I think the restaurant is doing well. I know people who've been there and it's busy, got a great location and the food is good.

Blimey, just 3 European shows? That really is a whistle stop tour.
Interesting they've booked Wembley Stadium instead of the O2 arena. If they hit capacity that's 60,000 for the UK. On With the Show they played the O2 6 times; 120,000 + a load of other shows in Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and Birmingham.
Will they add more dates?
