Lindsey Buckingham & Christine McVie made a rare TV appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on June 8 ahead of their much anticipated summer U.S. tour. The Fleetwood Mac stars performed the single “In My World” in support of their brand new self-titled studio album, which hit shelves on June 9 via Atlantic Records.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers announced the appearance on June 8 at their official Lindsey Buckingham & Christine McVie website and the video footage was posted Friday at the official YouTube channel of “The Tonight Show.” Although Mac bandmates Mick Fleetwood (drums) and John McVie (bass) performed on the recording of “In My World,” the celebrated rhythm section did not appear during the TV performance.
In the 4:43 minute clip, Buckingham deftly fingerpicks his guitar over the haunting three-chord into, accompanied by McVie' on keyboard and solid backing by their four-piece touring band. Buckingham handles lead vocal chores with two-part harmony from McVie, as he begins the first verse, singing “Fare.../Farewell.../Heart of gold/Maybe we're lost/Without the cost/Of stories that we've told.”
The pair's first-ever duo album was produced co-produced by Buckingham with the help of Mitchell Froom and Mark Needham. Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie features 10 tracks and is available here in CD, digital and vinyl formats. Fans can check out the live TV performance of "In My World" above.
The multi-platinum sellers will launch their supporting U.S. summer tour on June 21 in Atlanta at Chastain Park and will wrap up July 27 in Denver at The Paramount. Tickets for select Buckingham & McVie events are available now at AXS.
Fleetwood Mac fans who might fear the demise of the enduring band need not worry. Buckingham & McVie will rejoin their Mac bandmates for a pair of stadium shows billed as “The Classic Concerts.” The “Don't Stop” hitmakers will headline a bill with special guests Journey and Earth, Wind & Fire on July 15 in Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium with the same line up will performing on July 30 in New York at Citi Field.
