................. that all said, i just hope Lindsey is on the mend, and he and the rest of the band / crew will have no long term disease consequences.

and that he can reschedule these postponed European dates. and that people can keep their tickets and don't have to go through all the strain of ticket buying again.

Sorry to hear this for the UK/Europe fans.

But of course it's not good going to a show if Lindsey is off his game.

It really is running rampant these days. At least the vaccinations and other treatments should keep Lindsey out of ICU. Here's to a full recovery for him and the other band/crew members.

If Stevie's doing the festival circuit maybe her turn is next.

Kelly Ripa posted about her positive COVID-19 test on her Instagram story May 9. "Thankfully I am vaccinated and boosted and today's show was already pre-taped last week.

Sad to hear about this. It was in the back of my mind that it would happen but hope it wouldn't. I hope it happens before the end of summer because they are predicting another spike by the fall.

Hope everyone bounces back soon.

Lindsey Buckingham postpones his first European solo tour as he recovers from COVID-19
Matt Friedlander 7 hrs ago

Lindsey Buckingham was supposed to launch his first-ever solo tour of Europe in Dublin, Ireland, this Tuesday, May 17, but the former Fleetwood Mac singer/guitarist has had to postpone the trek because he recently contracted COVID-19 and hasn't recorded yet.

A message on Buckingham's social media sites shared the bad news, saying, "It is with great sadness that we are announcing the postponement of Lindsey's European tour which had been due to begin next week. Along with other members of his band and crew, Lindsey contracted COVID-19 at the end of his latest North American tour, forcing that to end prematurely. Unfortunately he's still recovering and has no choice but to move the upcoming tour to a later date."


The note continues, "This is heartbreaking for Lindsey, he was so excited to come to Europe for the first time as a solo artist this spring. We're currently working on rescheduling the dates and hope to have some news to share on that very soon."

The 11-date tour had been scheduled to run through a June 2 performance at Denmark's Heartland Festival 2022.

Late last month, Lindsey announced that the last few shows of his spring 2022 North American tour had to be canceled because of a COVID outbreak in his touring party, which we now know included him.

The canceled concerts included an April 28 show in Tysons, Virginia; and April 30 gig in Louisville, Kentucky; and a May 1 performance at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, Tennessee.

Buckingham continues to promote his latest solo album, a self-titled collection that was released in July 2021.

Agreed. I’m glad he’s taking care of himself. Lord knows, we need Lindsey well and creatively active. His ongoing work ethic is an inspiration.

I wish both Lindsey & Stevie would cancel the rest of their tours and go home. And stay off the road until this pandemic is really under control.

Intrigued to see that Lindsey's wife and daughter were in London yesterday, even if he wasn't! A shame to let those flight tickets and hotel bookings go to waste...
