Whilst yes i agree that anytime Fleetwood Mac have played lately they are doing this very thing. however this is different because Lindsey is clearly in a creative mindset, wanting to pursue new music and the band has dictated that they want the pay day with these two show. You know expanding the legacy and all.... I'm looking at two members specifically who would be loving this.
Yes it seems like the Buckingham McVie project has made him realize that Fleetwood Mac (as it exists with Stevie, at least) is stagnant.

From one of the other interviews:

Asked how he felt about playing a show explicitly geared to evoke memories of the old days, Buckingham cringed.

“It doesn’t necessarily speak of the aspiration to present anything in the way that Fleetwood Mac would want to present it on its own terms,” he said. “But we’re all very close to Irving, so it was just sort of a ‘Why not?’”

Pretty diplomatic for a rock star.

“I was going to put it less diplomatically, but I stopped myself,” he said.

“Do the undiplomatic version,” McVie chimed in. “What were you going to say?”

“I was going to say, ‘Just close your eyes and take the money,’” Buckingham answered, and the soundstage rippled with laughter again.

Seems a bit disrespectful to the fans who are shelling out hard earned money to see you.

I got that impression, too. That's why I'm so glad this tour and album have been well received. Critically the reviews have been mostly very positive.

NY and LA are nearly sold out. I saw about 40 tickets left for LA. Very few tickets left in NY. (and FMac is going to be in those markets). Seattle show completely sold out. (that was their test balloon) and Vegas and Phoenix have really picked up. Only limited seats left in Denver and Ironstone (NOCAL). I did not think the tour and album would grab momentum like this. Buckingham/McVie??

Add in the UK markets have really loved this new music. They could easily sell a European tour.

Lindsey's happy and I don't blame him. And if the 2 Mac shows financed the BuckVie album and tour it's a win/win. Although one source told me they are actually making money on their own for this tour.

I don't think it's disrespectful, in all fairness from Lindsey's perspective the people attending these shows could have anyone singing the hits at them and they could care less. It's about the event not the artists. The classic series are terrible try hard version of the amazing event that was the dessert trip.

Well, it's my first time seeing the band, so if it isn't too much trouble, I'd like for Lindsey to play "Go your Own Way", instead of, I don't know, anyone else.

For me, it's not about the event. I don't care about the rest of the bands. I'm gonna see FM.

I also found the comment a bit disrespectful. I'm happy to know they're probably gonna finance another BuckVie album with the classic series, but at least a decent show is all what I'm asking for.

Absolutely nutty money....
Still, should help oil the cogs of the creative mindset.

I paid that for one day only, including shipment ....

What can I say?

I want Lindsey's kids to be happy. And Kristen...

I want John to buy another boat

I want Mick to avoid bankruptcy

I want Christine to stay in the US and stop baking cookies in England

I want Stevie... I don't know what I want for her. I honestly don't care much.

Oh don't get me wrong, he will be an absolute pro, right down to the interactions with Stevie. I'm sure it will be a blast, i just see this whole exercise as taking away from Buckingham McVie.

$1400? Wow. Lifelong obsession or not, my cheap gene would override me paying that, I think.

I did $350 for OWTS... I might go $500 for 2018, but I think that would be about the limit before I'd start kicking myself.

That said, I understand that it's your first and possibly only time, so you should go for it.

Well, to keep you from worrying about my mental health that was in fact my limit. I'm usually a very generous person with friends and family (and even strangers) but cheap with myself. So, this time I decided to be a generous soul also with me.


If family issues allow me, I'll be on the US east side of the tour next year. Because it's cheaper.

he's a professional. He's not gonna just go out there and phone it in. He and the rest are gonna give you a better than decent show. He's just saying that at this point, when it comes to feeding the creative side of his soul, these kinds of shows don't do it. (they feed the money-making side---which helps pay for the creative soul feeding side).
