Fleetwood Mac announces first show with new lineup
Having left Lindsey Buckingham behind, Fleetwood Mac is going its own way — to Vegas.
The legendary band is set to perform Friday, Sept. 21 at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival. It will be their first show since Mike Campbell (the former lead guitarist for Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers) and Neil Finn (the frontman of Crowded House) replaced Buckingham in April. The two join remaining members Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, and Christine McVie.
“It is an honor to be performing at the iHeartRadio Music Festival for our very first time,” Nicks said in a statement. “The beauty of an event like this is that it is a true representation of the power of radio. It’s an opportunity for artists across all genres to share one stage and what we all love most — music!”
The show precedes a sizable North American tour for Fleetwood Mac. It kicks off Oct. 3 in Tulsa, Okla. and will stop in over 50 cities. The band made news earlier this week when former guitarist Danny Kirwan died at age 68.
Ryan Seacrest is hosting the iHeartRadio Music Festival, which will feature performances from Justin Timberlake, Jack White, Carrie Underwood, Mariah Carey, and more. Head here to see the full lineup. The CW will broadcast the fest in a two-night TV special on Oct. 7 and 8.
