Lindsey Buckingham & Christine McVie
W/ Special Guests Wilderado
On the heels of a sold-out critically acclaimed summer tour, longtime Fleetwood Mac members Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie announced the second leg of their North American tour, stopping at Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land on November 16!
The collaboration began three years ago, when McVie rejoined Fleetwood Mac for the group’s “On With The Show” tour. The pair went in to record new material prior to rehearsals for the tour and their natural creative chemistry was reignited. According to Buckingham, “We were exploring a creative process, and the identity of the project took on a life organically. The body of work felt like it was meant to be a duet album. We acknowledged that to each other on many occasions, and said to ourselves, ‘what took us so long?!!’”
Working their natural singer songwriter skills together came easily for the duo. Said Christine McVie, “We’ve always written well together, Lindsey and I, and this has just spiraled into something really amazing that we’ve done between us.”
Wilderado has a sound that is familiar and dreamy, combining elements of folk, pop, and rock to make a distinctive quality of music all their own. Most of their songs are marked by twangy, well-crooned, harmonies, nods to beloved rock legends in the realm of Neil Young and the Beach Boys, and subtly layered sound inspired by the Malibu home where they got their start. Born and bred in Texas and Oklahoma before curing in the canyons off the Pacific Coast Highway, these boys are equal parts southern spirit and southern California levity. And frankly, their natural level of positive energy and charm is as impossible to believe as it is enjoyable to watch. Each of their shows seems to be imbued with the intimacy of a living room set put on for friends. Perhaps not the most polished, but that somehow wouldn’t be right anyway. They’re just stoked to be here, and once you hear what they’re bringing to the table you will be too.
