Lindsey Buckingham Announces Postponement Of European Tour Due To COVID
Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham recently posted a tweet to announce that his forthcoming European Tour will be postponed for further dates because he is still recovering from COVID-19.
Lindsey Buckingham rose to fame as the lead guitarist and singer of Fleetwood Mac, but he is also a successful solo artist. Apart from his tenure with the band, he has released seven solo and three live records. Buckingham’s career with Fleetwood Mac had several conflicts. Hence, he left the band in 1987 and rejoined in 1997, but they fired him on April 9, 2018.
From that point on, Buckingham focused on his solo music career. On June 8, 2021, he announced his seventh studio album ‘Lindsey Buckingham’ along with the single ‘I Don’t Mind.’ He then released the album on September 17, 2021, and embarked on a tour to support the album the same month.
However, it turned out that Lindsey Buckingham contracted COVID-19 at the end of his North American tour. So, he didn’t perform on the remaining dates. This year, Buckingham was planning to visit Europe for the first time as a solo musician, with a tour that will kick off on May 17 in Dublin.
Buckingham announced that he had to postpone this tour in a recent tweet because he was still recovering. In the announcement, he expressed his sadness as he was pretty excited to come to Europe. According to the tweet, they will reschedule the dates and share more details with the fans soon.
In his Twitter post, Lindsey Buckingham penned:
“It is with great sadness that we are announcing the postponement of Lindsey’s European tour, which had been due to begin next week. Along with other band and crew members, Lindsey contracted Covid-19 at the end of his latest North American tour, forcing that to end prematurely.
Unfortunately, he’s still recovering and has no choice but to move the upcoming tour to a later date. This is heartbreaking for Lindsey. He was so excited to come to Europe for the first time as a solo artist this spring. We’re currently working on rescheduling the dates and hope to have some news to share on that very soon.”
