Tickets for Fleetwood Mac's October 28 show at the Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center (the arena's name is still tentative) are priced between $149.50 and $299.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Nicks, ever the trooper, said that waiting that long simply wasn't in the cards. We don't have anything else to do. "Not to hedge around, but we arrived at the impasse of hitting a brick wall", he said. But the band is now saying he was sacked because of a scheduling conflict related to this tour, according to Rolling Stone.
"We don't use that word because I think it's ugly and it's not a question of that", Fleetwood, 70, told "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday about the oft-reported use of the word "fired" where Buckingham is concerned. He will be replaced on Mac's just-announced upcoming tour with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell and Crowded House's Neil Finn. Majority rules in term of what we need to do as a band and go forward'.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Nicks promised a three-hour set for audiences, pulling songs from all phases of the group's 50-year history.
The tour is now scheduled to begin in October, in Oklahoma, and end with the April 5 Philadelphia show.

Time makes you bolder, children get older and the members of Fleetwood Mac are getting older, too. Guess someone had to go their own way.
It won't be the first time the band will play shows without Buckingham, as he skipped out on the 1987 Tango In The Night tour.
The group's messy internal romances and breakups famously created a tension that belied an uneasy musical unity on the 1977 album "Rumours", the group's most acclaimed work.
As of this writing, Lindsay Buckingham has not responded to his firing from Fleetwood Mac. Buckingham had found some success as a solo artist, and he and Nicks weren't getting along, so they parted ways.
