The North American tour began on June 21, 2017 in Atlanta, GA. A complete list of dates of the new leg of the tour can be found below.
The announcement of the tour coincides with the announcement of a new single that goes to radio this week, entitled "Lay Down for Free." Simply titled "Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie," a new 10-song album is now available on CD, LP and all digital and streaming services via Atlantic Records. Of the album, NPR says, "The marvel that is these two longtime bandmates can simultaneously stand on their own and exert a gentle pull on each other, expanding our appreciation of them as living, breathing artists..."
The collaboration began 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?!'"
Working their natural singer-songwriter skills together came easily for the duo. Said Christine McVie, "We've always written well together, Lindsey and I, and this has just spiraled into something really amazing that we've done between us."
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.
