Fleetwood Mac fans are buzzing over Christine McVie‘s upcoming performance with the band in Dublin on Saturday (September 21st) at The O2 Dublin. McVie, who quit the band in 1998, shortly after Fleetwood Mac’s massive reunion tour behind its live album The Dance, has chosen to live a quiet, semi-retired life in England, but according to Stevie Nicks, has travelled with the band to Ireland.
However, Lindsey Buckingham has said previously that McVie didn’t just quit Fleetwood Mac – she started an entirely new life: “You have to backtrack to. . . with Christine. When she quit the band,clearly, she was not happy touring. She was. . . she never did enjoy the touring very much, but she felt the need to burn, pretty much, every bridge she had in the United States. She got a divorce, she sold her house, she sold her publishing, for God sake, she quit the band, she moved back to England and it was a radical series of things she did, and I’m not sure why.”
