Lindsey Buckingham has announced that due to Covid, he's been forced to postpone his first-ever solo European tour. The Fleetwood Mac legend had to scrap the final four dates of his just-wrapped North American tour when members of his touring outfit contracted the virus — and now it's been revealed Buckingham also fell ill.
A message regarding the tour was posted on Lindsey Buckingham's social media platforms which read:
It is with great sadness that we are announcing the postponement of Lindsey’s European tour. 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. This is heartbreaking for Lindsey, he was so excited to come to Europe for the first time as a solo artist this spring.
We're currently working on rescheduling the dates and hope to have some news to share on that very soon.

Lindsey Buckingham received great reviews for his most recent album, 2021's self-titled set. He told us his songwriting has always been fueled by the muse with him often unsure how a song will turn out once it springs to life: “You have someplace to start, you put some color on the canvas, and you have a basic idea what you think it might be, but, y'know, you're gonna allow the work to define itself and to lead you where it wants to go. Y'know, that's why the writing is sort of, part and parcel with the production because you have to, sort of, allow yourself be meditative and subconscious and deal in that realm and not think of anything in terms of anything being too concrete.”
