Fleetwood Mac‘s North American tour is on track to sell a million tickets and gross over $100 million, according to a report from Billboard.
The reports says Fleetwood Mac is on track to gross more than $100 million on the North American leg of their 2018/2019 tour, despite being on the road without guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. The band grosses between $1.5 to $2 million per show across U.S. venues.
More than ten shows on the tour have surpassed the $2 million mark in ticket sales, including the Dallas show at American Airlines Center on February 7 and the Tacoma Dome concert on November 17.
Buckingham was fired by the band last year over disagreements about its touring plans. Buckingham reportedly wanted to spend most of 2019 on a solo tour, while the band wanted to get back on the road together.
The band recruited Mike Campbell of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Crowded House‘s Neil Finn to replace Buckingham.
“When Lindsey left the band, none of us had any expectations good or bad — it was more about continuing Fleetwood Mac,” the group’s co-manager Carl Stubner told Billboard.
“We had about a month to put the tour together and get it on sale, without any assets or pictures of the new lineup,” he added. “Thankfully, it started doing well from the beginning.”
