Lindsey Buckingham news

Lindsey Buckingham: One Man Show - the first ever solo acoustic live album from the longtime Fleetwood Mac singer/songwriter and guitarist - arrives on Nov. 13.  

It will be available digitally on iTunes as Buckingham concludes his year long trek of sold out solo acoustic shows (remaining tour dates below). The intimate and stripped down setting on the road truly displayed the immense talents of this legendary performer. The album, recorded live in Des Moines, Iowa on Sept. 1, is a raw and unmixed performance that includes many of his hits. 
Buckingham says, “As an artist, you need to seek out what is essential and discard what is inessential, to always keep an eye on what lives at the center.  That was the impetus for this performance.  My center has always been voice and guitar, and as I've evolved, I've looked to broaden the range and vocabulary of that center.  So when I decided to tour in 2012, it suddenly felt as though I'd been working towards something, that I'd arrived at a new place.  I sensed it was time to do something I'd never done: A one man show. This performance is from a single night in Des Moines, Iowa, taken right off the console mix, with a couple of room mikes added in.  It's live and raw, with no post-production.  I love it!  It captures not only the spirit of the performance, but also the spirit of where I now live as an artist.”
