Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham will be performing at Comerica Theatre on July 25, 2017. The Live Nation produced concert is in support of their recently released album of new material which is appropriately titled Lindsey Buckingham / Christine McVie. The album dropped on June 9 to positive reviews.
McVie and Buckingham begin collaborating 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?!!’”
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. “We’ve always written well together, Lindsey and I, and this has just spiraled into something really amazing that we’ve done between us.”
The concert set list for the first 9 shows of the tour have included a healthy mix of tracks from their new album along with classic Fleetwood Mac hits like Tusk, Little Lies and Go Your Own Way. Tickets are available at the Live Nation website and Ticketmaster.
