As much as i'd like to think that Fleetwood Mac might allow Neil to play a song from his catalogue, i'd definitely play down any setlist expectations or requests. 

Think 99.50% Fleetwood Mac songs at a minimum. 

Remember, it's Neil as a member of Fleetwood Mac, not a Neil and Fleetwood Mac joint tour. 

I also think this may be the beginning of the band's farewell tour? 

I wouldn't be too optimistic for any of Neil's tunes to be played at all to be honest (as much as i'd love to hear the band interpret some of his work).

I think it's fairly certain the band will play one of the Nicks/Petty songs (probably Stop Draggin My Heart Around) and one Finn song (probably Don't Dream It's Over. Hey I can always dream Neil gets even more than that. Wouldn't Fingers of Love sound great performed by the Mac?

I have to say that I highly doubt they will do any Tom Petty stuff.  I think Mike was asked because he is a fantastic guitar player and probably not doing too much at the present time.  He was may have been suggested by Stevie because of her past connection with him.  I also don't believe they have really done much of Stevie's solo stuff in the past but I could be wrong about that.  As someone already mentioned, I do believe that the set list will likely be 99% FM.  "Stop Draggin My Heart Around" was actually a Stevie solo that involved TP.  Besides, who would do the TP part?  As much as I love Neil, I honestly think he would be horrible on it as the song is just not his style.  Plus, I think Stevie is still in too much grief over the loss of TP that I don't know how she could bear to sing it.  That being said, 'Private Universe' may be a possibility only because I think Mick would have a blast playing the song as drums are a big part of the song.  Again, Neil joined FM not the other way around.  It will be interesting to see what does end up on the set list, but I guess we will have to wait a few months yet for that.

Mike Campbell is chiefly known for his superb guitar playing but he's an accomplished songwriter too: he co-wrote "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" with Tom Petty and he's also a co-writer on several other key Petty songs (Refugee, Here Comes My Girl, A Woman In Love, You Got Lucky, and Jammin' Me which he wrote with Tom and Bob Dylan), he also wrote the music for Don Henley's "Boys of Summer".

Stevie Nicks was a guest vocalist on the 2006 Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers U.S. tour and typically performed that song in addition to "I Need To Know" and "Insider" with the band each night. If Mike is given a song on the tour it could be "I Need To Know" with Stevie singing as the other two were duets with Tom.

It's debatable and remains to be seen if the new additions to the band will be given a platform to perform their own compositions with the band. That said, deviations from Fleetwood Mac material are not unheard of in their set lists.
The last time Lindsey was replaced on the tour for Tango In The Night, Billy Burnette was performing one of his father's songs in the encore.
On the three occasions I've seen Fleetwood Mac they've performed Stevie's "Stand Back" every time, and they've also performed some Lindsey solo songs and at least one song from the Buckingham/Nicks album over the years.

But history suggests they will do "Go Your Own Way" and may dip into their pre-1975 era for the tracks Mick Fleetwood's statement hinted at from their "historic catalogue" to surprise the fans.

It would be fascinating hearing one of Neil's songs given the full Fleetwood Mac treatment, and a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers song for that matter - and I hope it happens, but they may play it safe given that Lindsey's absence is already a big ask of their fan base. 

Opening night of this tour will be fascinating.

 

"I Need To Know" would be cool.  I suggested that it might be "Runnin' Down A Dream" as Mike co-wrote that and the lyrics fit this tour.  In fact, they could play "Runnin" and "Don't Dream It's Over" back to back as the lyrics sort of tie together.  My main hope is that they dip into deep Mac catalogue and play some obscure Stevie songs as there are so many wonderful Stevie songs that have rarely if ever been played in concert.
