I understand the divide on both sides of the fence; not all FM fans are happy, just like not all Neil fans are happy. This new incarnation of Fleetwood Mac or Neils latest musical adventure (depending on how you view it) will have to face some harsh critics and hardcore skeptics when they hit the road later this year.
They won’t be the first or last big act to have to do so; The Eagles went on without Glenn Frey and Van Halen carried on without Michael Anthony (just to name a few recent ones); I won’t even start to go into acts like Styx, Yes, Chicago, Supertramp, Journey, etc.
Personally I would attribute low sales to insane ticket prices and probably wrong strategy in terms of venues. They should have aimed for smaller more intimate locations to test the waters instead of diving straight into large arenas.
As much as I love Neil and FM, and I fully support this tour, I cannot afford to pay $300 for this experiment.
