Mick Fleetwood said that Fleetwood Mac has ruled out the idea of doing a lengthy tour.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the drummer said, “We’re not going to do a [long] tour, I would say, ever again. But there’s loads of alternatives. People like Peter Gabriel have a lovely way of working where they go and just do four or five major festivals during the summer. That’s the sort of vision that I see for Fleetwood Mac. We’re able to cherry-pick things that have dignity, and are fun to do, and they’re historically interesting.”

The band’s last time on the road was way back in 2018 with Mike Campbell and Neil Finn taking Lindsey Buckingham’s place. He also stated that the band has no plans of reuniting with Buckingham, and the current lineup will remain as is on standby for new plans. “We had a lovely get-together in L.A. about two weeks ago after the tour. We are all very open to that continuing in the band. There’s no breaking up of the band. We were like, ‘Give us a break. Give us a few weeks before we start wondering what to do. (castle-keepers.com) ’ In the New Year, we’ll touch on what the vision is,” Fleetwood said.

He didn’t rule out the idea of a farewell tour, though, saying that it “would be the right thing to do, to let people know you’re not wanting to play again. We are not at that point, but if we get there, it’s a pretty good, gracious thing to let people know they’ll never see the band play again.”
