Lindsey Buckingham Begins Solo Tour

Share This:

Lindsey Buckingham isn’t staying idle while his former Fleetwood Mac bandmates tour this fall. The group’s longtime producer, guitarist, vocalist and songwriter announced his own North American Tour on Aug. 14 in support of a new collection, Solo Anthology – The Best of Lindsey Buckingham, described in a press release as a “comprehensive record of his illustrious career.” (The title, including two never-before-released songs, was released Oct. 5 on Rhino Records as a 3-CD set and as an abridged single disc. A 6-LP vinyl release is scheduled for November 23.)

Buckingham’s tour began Oct. 7 – his bandmates’ tour started four days earlier – and continues through Dec. 9. Tickets are available here and here; see below for dates. We’ve got clips from several of the early dates below.

Buckingham turned 69 on October 3.

Solo Anthology – The Best of Lindsey Buckingham includes album, live and alternate versions of songs from his solo albums Law and Order, Go Insane, Out of the Cradle, Under the Skin, Gift of Screws and Seeds We Sow, as well as songs from his 2017 collaborative album with Christine McVie.

Watch Buckingham perform “Tusk” on opening night

The collection includes such Buckingham solo hits as “Trouble” and “Go Insane,” as well as “Holiday Road” and “Dancin’ Across the USA” from the 1983 motion picture soundtrack to National Lampoon’s Vacation. The third disc is devoted exclusively to live material including versions of Fleetwood Mac’s “Tusk” and “Go Your Own Way.” The two never-before-released songs are “Hunger” and “Ride This Road.” (See complete track listing below.)

Of the album, Buckingham wrote: “My goal has always been to continue to take risks, to continue to aspire to be an artist. Nowhere is this more strongly represented than in my solo endeavors. I’m one who likes to look forward, not back. But curating this compilation album – creativity spanning three decades – turned out to be surprisingly cathartic. For the first time I was able to appreciate the cohesive thread running through the body of work, and I’m proud of how fresh and vital it all remains. I hope those listening to this album enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting it together!”

A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and 3-time Grammy winner, Buckingham is best known as the producer, guitarist, vocalist and chief songwriter for Fleetwood Mac and as a widely celebrated solo artist.
