Lindsey Buckingham Forced to Postpone First Solo European Tour Due to Covid
Europe will have to wait a little bit longer for Lindsey Buckingham's first tour as a solo artist. For the second time in recent months, the former Fleetwood Mac guitarist's concert plans have been sidelined by covid-19.
After being forced to cancel the end of his most recent U.S. tour, Buckingham's upcoming tour overseas will be pushed back due to the virus: “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,” according to a message shared on the artist's social media. “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.” See the tweet below.
