Fleetwood Mac at the iHeartRadio Festival, Las Vegas, September 21, 2018

Fleetwood Mac unveiled its new lineup Friday night (September 21) when they played five songs at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. The concert, at T-Mobile Arena, marked the first time audiences got to see new members Mike Campbell and Neil Finn with Mac mainstays Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie.

The new lineup performed five of the band’s well known classic rock songs: “The Chain,” “Little Lies,” “Second Hand News,” “Gold Dust Woman” and “Don’t Stop.”

The group had made its public performance debut on September 5 with a televised appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show playing two songs.

Their tour, “An Evening With Fleetwood Mac,” begins October 3, with North American dates scheduled into 2019. Tickets are available here and here.

On April 9, the band announced a split with Lindsey Buckingham, their longtime guitarist, songwriter and vocalist, replacing him for the tour with Campbell and Finn. At that time, the group said in a collective statement: “We are thrilled to welcome the musical talents of the caliber of Mike Campbell and Neil Finn into the Mac family. With Mike and Neil, we’ll be performing all the hits that the fans love, plus we’ll be surprising our audiences with some tracks from our historic catalogue of songs. Fleetwood Mac has always been a creative evolution. We look forward to honoring that spirit on this upcoming tour.”

Days after the announcement, Campbell released a statement: “Though I was sad to hear Lindsey Buckingham is no longer with Fleetwood Mac, I am honored and excited to join the band,” wrote Campbell. “Lindsey is one of my favorite musical artists. A true genius at songwriting and guitar playing. I intend to honor his songs while at the same time bring my musicality to the band. After one rehearsal I can tell it’s going to be an amazing collaboration.”
