What about DVD sales? They are sure to release a DVD commemorating Christine's return. If they can sell the broadcast to some cable channel, maybe they can make money off of that first. And then put out a dvd of the show. Then, tour, like they did with The Dance.

The whole "first time in 16 years angle" gives them a new way to promote it and maybe will give big boys like Live Nation more interest in throwing new money at them.

Well here it is folks.. Think of it this way.. If the promoters are pissed that Christine isn't doing Amsterdam and Berlin.. then that's because........

Having Christine in the mix.. makes a very different ticket price.. and a very different marketing product. And the truth of the matter is, the Rumours line up is not only a cash cow, but it has that magic creatively.

Face it.. FMac with just Buckingham/Nicks is tired..

I would rather just get solo from LB and SN.

(I know a lot of people like B/N and buy it over and over again.) But from an artistic view, it's tired in my opinion and doesn't sound good at all. If you don't believe me.. listen to, "Don't Stop" London without Christine... then listen to it 9/25/13 with her. It's unreal how having the 5 fireflies together, (even for a moment) brings the magic out...
Her keys were so bluesy and she even had a terse little solo in there. The the band came to life again for me. Plus, I haven't seen Stevie that happy in a long time with the band. Mick too actually..

Bottom line... It can only help them musically and financially to have all 5 of them up there again recording and performing. I'm with Elle on this one. No more B/N!! it's awful. give me solo instead, unless you come back as 5.

25% - Lindsey
25% - Stevie
25% - Christine
12.5% - Mick
12.5% - John

Someone run the numbers.
Where's my pie graph charts Mr. Dyess?

The new album sales wouldn't offset the loss
percentage wise to Lindsey and Stevie from
touring. Unless of course Christine got them
to tour more dates with her than they would
without her.
I thought the current split was

40% - Stevie
30% - Lindsey
15% - Mick
15% - John

If so, then the new split of

25% - Stevie
25% - Lindsey
25% - Christine
12.5% - Mick
12.5% - John

doesn't make a big dent in the paychecks of anyone other than Stevie. However, I'm on the fence about how much more they can actually make with Christine in the mix. Ticket prices are already very high, so is attendance, and there are a lot of casual fans who just know that Fleetwood Mac is a legendary band with a lot of great songs; they aren't necessarily tuned in to specific personnel line-ups.

Why does Stevie have to take a 37.5% pay cut while Lindsey only takes a 17% cut and using those figures she suffers the most...

I'm willing to bet that Stevie would happily take a 37.5% pay cut, if it meant having her friend back in the band.

The best thing in this article is the news that John's prognosis is good, and it looks like he will beat the cancer.

never gonna happen. woman's gotta whole slew of hangers-on to feed and trudge around the world. plus she's the diva in that band. i don't see her ever accepting to be equal to others anymore, regardless of the amount of weight she's pulling. and frankly, others know it so i don't see them even trying to suggest that kind of split. plus she can always go open for Rod Stewart again, and make the same kind of money for less effort albeit much less worship from the audience.

Ok. Let me look at my agenda. And this is not what I want, it's just what I think. Although, I don't want you to have OMS2 until 2016, that much is true.

Make up dates for the rest of this tour this year. But those take place from June through the end of the year. They don't start early 2014 year. The tour this year doesn't include Christine, although I think that Mick might want her to play Glastonbury. So, maybe. Then, they work on the album this year as well. Then they tour as five in 2015.

By the time the lawyers get done arguing over who gets paid what it probably will be FM's 50th.

All I would say about John is that they have a party line and Christine knows the talking points and gave those talking points. The only new information we have about John is that he is undergoing treatment in Los Angeles, which I thought and hoped and am glad to have confirmed.

Based on their last concert appearances, I think they looked pretty happy, for the most part, so I believe them all that they expect him to be up and about soon -- even for Vegas.

But it's also clear that they have agreed upon what they are going to say to the press. Which is fine.

We heard them in that car that time, with Christine asking Mick what to say about Lindsey's epilepsy and Mick told her she couldn't say it was epilepsy and I think this is similar. They have discussed how to address the question and Christine said what John Mayall said.
