Ticket alert: Fleetwood Mac (minus Lindsey Buckingham) to play Sunrise

Weeks after firing longtime guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, the retooled lineup of Fleetwood Mac has announced a 52-date North American tour, stopping by the BB&T Center on Feb. 20, 2019.

Tickets cost $65.25-$245.25 via Ticketmaster.com and pay-by-phone (800-745-3000) and go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Friday, May 4, with a series of presales starting 10 a.m. Monday, April 30.

Earlier this month, Fleetwood Mac parted ways with Buckingham over backstage acrimony about the direction of their upcoming tour, which kicks off Oct. 3 in Tulsa, Okla., and ends the following April in Philadelphia, the band told Rolling Stone on Monday.

That means concertgoers won’t witness the popular “Rumours”-era lineup of Fleetwood Mac, the iconic quintet that last performed in 2014 at the BB&T Center. Instead, Fleetwood Mac three weeks ago replaced Buckingham with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell and Crowded House singer-songwriter Neil Finn.

Mick Fleetwood left the exact reasons for ejecting Buckingham vague in an interview with the magazine: “Words like ‘fired’ are ugly references as far as I’m concerned,” Fleetwood says. “Not to hedge around, but we arrived at the impasse of hitting a brick wall. This was not a happy situation for us in terms of the logistics of a functioning band. To that purpose, we made a decision that we could not go on with him.”

“With Mike and Neil, we’ll be performing all the hits that the fans love, plus we’ll be surprising our audiences with some tracks from our historic catalog of songs,” Fleetwood says in a prepared statement.
