Lindsey Buckingham to deliver ‘Gift’ during fall tour

By Tjames Madison / LiveDaily Contributor

Lindsey Buckingham has added a pair of dates to the upcoming tour behind his latest album, “Gift of Screws,” which now has a release date set for later this year.

The Fleetwood Mac singer/songwriter kicks off the run Sept. 7 in Saratoga, CA, with the new additions both coming in October: an Oct. 7 show in Hamilton, Ontario, and an Oct. 12 appearance in Lebanon, NH. In all, Buckingham will now hit 29 cities on the headlining trek. Dates are below.

Buckingham recorded “Gift of Screws,” due in stores Sept. 16, with members of his touring band, along with longtime Fleetwood Mac bandmates Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, who both appear on several tracks. “I’d say this album distills several periods of time,” Buckingham said in a press statement about his newest studio creation, which follows 2006’s “Under the Skin.”

“It has false starts to make albums, songs that go back a number of years that took a while to find a home, and brand-new songs,” he added. “I wanted to bring it all together in one place. As an artist I’m still, for better or worse, clinging to my idealism and to my sense that there is still much to be said. This album is a culmination of that.”
The singer has also told various interviewers in recent months that he hopes Fleetwood Mac will mount a tour behind a new studio album next year.

Earlier this year, Buckingham released “Live at the Bass Performance Hall,” a live DVD documenting his performance last year at the Fort Worth, TX, venue. The package is available in a bonus set that includes more than 45 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage, and an accompanying audio CD with the same track listing as the DVD.
