Fleetwood Mac's North American Tour On Track To Top $100 Million

Fleetwood Mac

(hennemusic) Fleetwood Mac's first North American tour without guitarist Lindsey Buckingham is on track to gross more than $100 million, according to a new report by Billboard.

The extensive 2018/2019 series - which opened in Tulsa, OK last October - is expected to sell more than 1 million tickets by the time it wraps up in Calgary, AB on April 15.

More than ten dates on the tour have passed the $2 million mark in ticket sales, including stops in Las Vegas, NV, Sacramento, CA, Dallas, TX, Tacoma, WA, Toronto, ON, Washington, DC, Tampa, FL Nashville, TN and Charlotte, NC.

The trek features new lineup additions Mike Campbell of Tom Petty's band and Neil Finn of Crowded House/Split Enz fame in place of longtime member Lindsey Buckingham, following his firing last year after Stevie Nicks reportedly gave the band an ultimatum that she would leave if he didn't.

"None of us had any expectations good or bad - it was more about continuing Fleetwood Mac," says co-manager Carl Stubner. "We had about a month to put the tour together and get it on sale, without any assets or pictures of the new lineup. Thankfully, it started doing well from the beginning."

Stubner explains the uptick is being fueled by a younger demographic of fans, including teenagers attending the tour with their parents and older millennials enjoying a night out with friends. Read more here.
