Fleetwood Mac Again Add Dates to Tour

Stevie Nicks and Mike Campbell in Tulsa, Okla., October 3, 2018

They had two dress rehearsals – with a nationally televised appearance on Ellen on September 5 and a brief, five-song set at the iHeartRadio music festival on September 21. On October 3, Fleetwood Mac took the wraps off their new lineup in concert in Tulsa, Okla., when they kicked off what is expected to be a world tour that will continue well into 2019 (and beyond?).

(On October 22, they announced the first European dates of their tour, with Pretenders opening. They’ve since added a second date at London’s Wembley Stadium. Many more concerts are expected, particularly with the many days off in the schedule.)

At the Tulsa performance, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks formally introduced two new members – former Split Enz/Crowded House guitarist-vocalist Neil Finn and Heartbreakers’ guitarist Mike Campbell – who replaced longtime Mac guitarist/vocalist/songwriter/producer (you get the picture) Lindsey Buckingham. The latter’s departure was revealed last April 9 and – despite a loooong history of a revolving door to the band’s lineup – was a surprise to the band’s faithful.

The band had promised to include several older songs on the tour’s setlist. At opening night at the BOK Center, the new lineup offered two dozen songs that incorporated two hits from Finn’s past as well as a Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers favorite. In addition to numerous Fleetwood Mac hits, the set reached back into its enormous catalog with several Mac classics the band hadn’t performed in decades.

For “Black Magic Woman,” written by the band’s co-founder Peter Green, and which the band reportedly hadn’t played since 1987, Nicks sang lead while Christine McVie on keyboards jammed with Campbell.
