We’re getting closer to the return of big concerts. It could happen before the end of 2021. That means there’s still a chance for me to catch some of the acts on my “See Them Before It’s Too Late List.”
The list includes Bruce Springsteen, The Who, and Fleetwood Mac. Bruce might still be possible. The Who might not. And Fleetwood Mac? I’m not sure. There have been “rumours” that the band was done for good following the departure of Lindsay Buckingham. However, despite what some people are believing, Mick Fleetwood says that Fleetwood Mac have NOT broken up.
Speaking to The Times in the U.K., Mick said, “We are still a band. We have not broken up. And here we are.” Fleetwood also points out that the band’s last tour was not to be its last and that they would find a way to wrap things up. “If that became clear — and it could — I would hope to find a classy way to say goodbye. Because one thing we’ve all learnt with Fleetwood Mac is that there are no absolutes at all,” the drummer explained.
If Fleetwood Mac does put together a proper farewell tour, it would have to include all of the members. Lindsay Buckingham is beyond essential to the band’s history. The five members should and could set aside any and all of their past differences for the sake of their fans. Especially those of us who were too foolish to see them in concert when we had multiple other opportunities.
