Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie announce New York, Los Angeles shows

Longtime members of Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie, are currently bringing their first-ever album as a duo to audiences across the country and have announced shows in Los Angeles at the Greek Theatre and New York City at the Beacon Theatre on August 2nd and August 10th, respectively.

American Express cardholders will have access to pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday, June 27th at 10 am local time. Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Friday, June 30th at 10 am local time.

Simply titled Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie, the ten song album is now available on CD, LP, and all digital and streaming services via Atlantic Records. The North American tour began on June 21st. A full itinerary for the tour can be found below.

NPR writes “The marvel is that these two longtime band mates can simultaneously stand on their own and exert a gentle pull on each other, expanding our appreciation of them as living, breathing artists…”

The collaboration began three years ago, when McVie rejoined Fleetwood Mac for the group’s “On With The Show” tour. The pair went in to record new material prior to rehearsals for the tour and their natural creative chemistry was reignited. According to Buckingham, “We were exploring a creative process, and the identity of the project took on a life organically. The body of work felt like it was meant to be a duet album. We acknowledged that to each other on many occasions, and said to ourselves, ‘what took us so long?!!’”

Working their natural singer songwriter skills together came easily for the duo. McVie states, “We’ve always written well together, Lindsey and I, and this has just spiraled into something really amazing that we’ve done between us.”

Sessions for the album took place at The Village Studios in Los Angeles, which is where Fleetwood Mac recorded several of their classic albums, including Tusk. Buckingham and McVie were joined in the studio by fellow bandmates Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, who supplied much of the dynamic rhythmic engine.
