“See you in court, Lind­sey”

Mac snub Buck­ing­ham as they an­nounce two sum­mer dates.

Classic Rock - - The Dirt -

Fleet­wood Mac are to in­tro­duce their new live line-up with two open-air sum­mer shows in 2019. The band, now with Heart­break­ers gui­tarist Mike Camp­bell and Crowded House leader Neil Finn in place of Lind­sey Buck­ing­ham, will per­form at the RDS Arena in Dublin on June 13 and Lon­don’s Wem­b­ley Sta­dium on June 16.

Buck­ing­ham re­cently sued the band for his dis­missal ear­lier this year as a re­sult of what has been called a ‘sched­ul­ing con­flict’, and hav­ing lost up to $14 mil­lion as a con­se­quence of their ac­tions. He'd re­quested the tour be de­layed in order to pro­mote his solo box set. The gui­tarist claims to have been told five days af­ter the group ap­peared at Ra­dio City Mu­sic Hall in Jan­uary that the tour would pro­ceed with­out him. Ac­cord­ing to Buck­ing­ham, the de­ci­sion to do so was “in breach of their fidu­ciary du­ties of loy­alty and good faith and fair deal­ing”. It also served to end what he called “the beau­ti­ful forty-three­year legacy we built to­gether”.

Re­spond­ing in a state­ment, spokesper­son Kris­ten Fos­ter said: “Fleet­wood Mac looks for­ward to their day in court.” DL

Snubbed: Lind­sey Buck­ing­ham.
