After confirming a split with longtime guitarist and singer Lindsey Buckingham, Fleetwood Mac has announced a sprawling tour with a Tacoma Dome stop this fall.
Fleetwood Mac made waves this month when the band confirmed it had shown longtime guitarist and singer Lindsey Buckingham the door. Turns out Seattle-Tacoma fans will get a look at the rejiggered Mac attack soon enough, as the soft-rock giants have announced a new tour, which comes to Tacoma this fall.
Their North American run hits the Tacoma Dome on Nov. 17, days after Justin Timberlake’s two-night stand. This summer the 35-year-old dome is scheduled to undergo a $30 million renovation set for completion in October. In addition to new seating with extra legroom, the renovations will reduce the arena’s turn around time between events.
According to Stevie Nicks, the sprawling 52-date trek was part of the reason for Buckingham’s ouster; She told Rolling Stone that Buckingham wanted to delay the tour. Instead, the band recruited guitarist Mike Campbell, formerly of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and Crowded House’s Neil Finn to fill his shoes.
Tickets for the Tacoma date go on sale to the general public 10 a.m. May 4 through Ticketmaster. American Express cardholders get first crack starting at 10 a.m. Monday, April 30, while other presales through Live Nation, Sirius XM and more begin at 10 a.m. Thursday, May 3.
