Lindsey Buckingham has announced an intimate show, live from his home studio in Los Angeles. The livestream concert, featuring hits from across his iconic catalog, will be held on December 5. Tickets for the 45-minute set are just $15 and are available here.

The performance will remain exclusively available to ticket purchasers for 48 hours post show.

Buckingham had planned a brief solo comeback tour of sorts in 2020. The concerts had originally been scheduled for spring with a dozen dates planned for April and May. In April, amidst the pandemic, many of them were moved to the summer. However, on June 11, all of the dates were officially canceled.

When he originally postponed the tour on March 24, Buckingham wrote, “It is with great sadness that we are having to postpone my tour dates… due to the Covid-19 pandemic.” He noted that he was in the process of rescheduling the concerts.

The original Feb. 11 announcement of the tour arrived one year after the shocking news from his wife, Kristen, that the musician had had heart surgery in early February 2019.

Buckingham’s planned tour consisted of just 12 dates, one of which, the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, Tenn, was announced on Dec. 20, 2019.

Buckingham’s spring tour of theater-sized venues was scheduled to begin April 25 and continue through May 13. Surprisingly, there were few days off and at one point, he had shows on six of seven nights. Tickets for his future tours will be available at Ticketmaster.com.

Kristen Buckingham had shared the news of her husband’s health on his social media platforms on Feb. 8, 2019. He had suffered vocal cord damage and was “recuperating at home and each day he is stronger than the last,” she wrote. He turned 71 on Oct. 3, 2020.

Buckingham had a highly visible parting from Fleetwood Mac in 2018. The band completed a tour with two replacements – the Heartbreakers’ lead guitarist Mike Campbell, and longtime Split Enz/Crowded House guitarist-vocalist Neil Finn. Buckingham spent much of his time in 2018 organizing an anthology and performing on a solo tour.

    Fleetwood Mac has “jumped the shark.”
