If FM wanted to do a stadium date, I believe the Rumours 5 would sell NY LA and CHI in a flash. Health permitting.

Or maybe a TV special a la The Dance? That would allow for Covid protocols to be followed more easily, give Lindsey the control he likes (overdubs and pre-records) and limit Stevie's need to be on stage with him.

Overdubs and pre- records is now a must!

Sounds like he is recovering from whatever it was well enough but not enough to be cleared to tour. And at 80, with Covid out there, that makes sense. Just really glad to hear he is in good spirits and seemingly on the mend!

As for their tour, it almost sounds like he might even be able to join them at some point toward the end. I would be shocked if they don’t do something next year - 2022 will align with their 60th anniversary and Mick and Keith are going to want to recognize that somehow and make some coin off of it.

HOW can Mick be so stupid? I mean, his pic must be in the dictionary under 'idiot'. The concept of "living within your means" doesn't exist in Mick's world.
I agree. Even if it wasn’t portrayed as an opening act — they’d play first and it would technically come off that way. And that would be embarrassing. And I mean would they do something together? Some horrible mix of The Chain and Hotel California? I love both bands but just kill me if this nightmare ever even came close to truth.

Stevie having at least four of her men on stage at once. Good lord..

Exactly. You don't go out "on top" as an opening act.

Maybe Henley could come out and duet on Sara. You know, for their baby $he......ended.

But 3 mega concerts, in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles could help Micks purse and give artistic closure for the others.

It would be filmed and make more money, and hopefully shut Mick up.
For good.
yes, if they were to do it, the only really functional way for them is a few big shows or just one mega show like Glastonbury. But if I recall they wanted ridiculously large money for that in the past and the festival said nah, thanks.

I know that Nicks has a long history of talking out of both sides of her mouth and endless contradictions ...but this time I believe her when she says that she will not share a stage with Lindsey again. There will no future tours with the Rumours five.

I pray that this is true. $he ruined the ending of the band. I hope $he's happy.

I'd love another BuckVie album, even if they didn't tour it.

I don’t see it happening due to their Ages and covid. If all this went down 10 years earlier she would be back on stage with him.

They can sell out a stadium with the current lineup. They did stadiums in London and Dublin.

So you think he'd be welcomed back as the musical director then?

"Is there even a small possibility?"

Does Stormy Stevie have a tendency to talk too much?
Does Manalishi Mick have a permanent hole in his wallet?
Does Lawsuit Lindsey have a yearning to salvage the band's narrative?
Are "Over Our Hill" John and Christine in their element on stage right regardless of the other members' antics?
Are "absolutely permanent members" Neil Finn and Mike Campbell dreaming it's over?

Yes, there is a small possibility of a final public reunion of some description.

But should there be one?

You and Mitzo should become best friends.

About health conditions, they could do show a la "The Dance", or "One Night Only", or a short tour in specific cities, it would be low risk for them.

But it's too late. The magic is not there any more, the bag is full of rocks again, and the voices are gone. I wouldn't pay an expensive ticket to watch them, I think I wouldn't go even if I win a free ticket. I don't want to hear those embarrasing voices, and if there are again those "silver springs" looks between S&L, that would be ridiculous and more embarrasing.

Like you? said, probably the MAJOR cities, but that's it. There's a huge difference in selling out an arena, and selling out a stadium.
