The former Fleetwood Mac member will play the Helix in May 2022.
Tickets for Lindsey Buckingham’s show in Dublin go on sale tomorrow, September 2, at 10am.
The former Fleetwood Mac guitarist will play in The Helix on May 17th, 2022, on the first night of his European tour. The singer recently shared 'Scream' from the self-titled record which will arrive on September 17th. Tickets for Buckingham’s show are available here.
‘Scream’ followed up the release of ‘I Don’t Mind’ and ‘On The Wrong Side.' “Many of the songs on this album are about the work and discipline it takes in maintaining a long-term relationship,” said Buckingham.
“Some of them are more about the discipline and some of them are more about the perks. “‘Scream’ is about the perks. It felt very celebratory and it was also very, very simple and short. To the point.”
The upcoming LP is the 71-year old’s first solo album since 2011’s Seeds We Sow. It was written, recorded and produced by Buckingham in his home studio in Los Angeles. The album is currently available for pre-order and will arrive in vinyl and CD formats as well as on streaming platforms.
This is his seventh solo studio album and his first since he departed Fleetwood Mac in 2018. He also released an album with Fleetwood Mac member Christine McVie in 2017. Buckingham kicked off the US leg of the self-titled tour last night (September 1) in Milwaukee and it will finish up in Colorado on December 20th.
This will be the songwriter's first solo headline tour in 3 years and his first ever in Europe. The singer was left out of Fleetwood Mac’s last trip to Ireland in the RDS in 2019 after he was fired in 2018.
Different reasons were given for his sacking with Stevie Nicks saying that he wanted too much time off to focus on his solo work. Buckingham said he was notified by Irving Azoff, the band’s manager, that “Stevie never wants to be on a stage with you again” after he reportedly smirked during Nicks’ speech in a show in New York amongst other reasons.
Buckingham was replaced by Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers and Crowded House’s Neil Finn. In March, Buckingham reconciled with the band’s drummer, Mick Fleetwood and even said he was hopeful a reunion could happen.
The singer suffered a heart attack in 2019 and had to undergo emergency open heart surgery from which he reportedly suffered vocal cord damage. Nicks contacted him after his health scare saying “You better take care of yourself.”
