Lindsey Buckingham Postpones UK And European Tour
Lindsey Buckingham has postponed his upcoming UK and European tour after he and members of his live band and crew contracted Covid-19. The tour was supposed to be the former Fleetwood Mac man’s first dates in Europe as a solo artist.
“It is with great sadness that we are announcing the postponement of Lindsey’s European tour,” a statement posted on the musician’s social media channels this afternoon (12 May) reads.
“Along with other members of his band and crew, 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.”
The statement adds: “This is heartbreaking for Lindsey, he was so excited to come to Europe for the first time as a solo artist this spring.”

According to the statement, “We’re currently working on rescheduling the dates and hope to have some news to share on that very soon.”
Buckingham released his self-titled solo album last year. While Buckingham is often considered a rock artist, he suggested on the album’s release that it belongs in a different genre. “I hear it as a pop album, which is an intention that I had,” he told Forbes in 2021. “Not that there isn’t pop in everything I do to some degree, but I think I was consciously trying to think about it in that way.
“I think I was also consciously trying to refer back to earlier reference points that some of which were Fleetwood Mac,” he said. “You can probably connect the dots between a song like On The Wrong Side and Go Your Own Way.”
