REVIEW Lindsey Buckingham Live in Santa Barbara April 15, 2022

Review Lindsey Buckingham at the Lobero
Former Fleetwood Mac Star in Santa Barbara on April 15th

Tue Apr 19, 2022 


What makes Lindsey Buckingham such a unique figure in pop history, even verging on the oft-misused superlative of “pop genius”? His generous and career-spanning concert at the Lobero on Friday, April 15, offered many clues. From early Fleetwood Mac hits “Go Your Own Way” and “Tusk” — highlights of this concert — up through last year’s impressive, eponymous solo album, Buckingham has deftly juggled hooks, polish, and also quirks. When he musters up grit in his vocal tone or takes off on distortion-laden guitar flights, we rarely get the sense that he’s baring his soul or channeling rock and roll angst; pop craft and artistic control trump sheer abandon.

Part of a run of smaller venue dates before heading to much larger venues in Europe, Buckingham’s Lobero concert also came equipped with extra layers of emotional underscoring. This was an eagerly awaited, pandemic-delayed tour. Additionally, since his 2018 Arlington concert with Christine McVie, Buckingham has been dismissed from Fleetwood Mac and endured emergency heart surgery and a near-divorce.

But at the Lobero, the lean and lithe Buckingham, now 72, delivered a powerful — and polished — show with his most excellent quartet. He tapped into his small but high-quality solo discography, firing up “Trouble,” “Soul Drifter,” and the new “I Don’t Mind” (a prime example of his artful way with a pop hook). Though mostly playing his delay-lathered acoustic-electric guitars, Buckingham took the occasion of the tune “I’m So Afraid” to lay out one of his tasteful, climactic, and epic electric solos towards the show’s end.

The concert also had two pivotal moments of particular poignancy. One came with his closing tune, the new “Time,” a lovely variation on the theme of Sandy Dennis’s mortality-wise anthem “Who Knows Where the Time Goes?” The other moving moment came with his slowed-down and radically reinvented version of the Mac tune “Never Going Back Again.” Suddenly, Buckingham seemed to pull away from the craft factor and bare his soul for a few minutes. A mid-show standing ovation was in order. 

San Francisco Review Lindsey Buckingham even as a solo artist is incredible

Earlier last year Lindsey Buckingham announced not only the release of his first solo album since 2011, (and his first album following his departure from Fleetwood Mac) but also a North American tour. The current leg of the tour recently kicked off at The Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, where he performed a nearly two-hour set to a packed house.

Taking the stage with his band at precisely 7:55pm, Lindsey first addressed the crowd and apologized for the absence of keyboard player Brent Tuggle, who was ill. He then kicked off the evening with “Not Too Late,” from his 2006 solo record Under the Skin. Lindsey was as masterful on his guitars as ever, as he and his three-piece band did a few more from his solo albums, including “Soul Drifter” and “Doing What I Can,” both from his 1992 record Out of the Cradle.

As the evening progressed, Lindsey played a few songs solo, including Fleetwood Mac classics “Never Going Back Again,” and “Big Love.” His backing band was not done yet though, as they returned to play a few songs from Lindsey’s long awaited seventh and latest solo album. Highlights included “Scream,” “I Don’t Mind,” and “Swan Song,” all which showed not only Lindsey’s talent, but also the talent of the band supporting him. They also tore through Fleetwood Mac standards “I’m So Afraid,” (with an epic extended solo from Lindsey and the song that everyone in the crowd wanted to hear, “Go Your Own Way,” during which Lindsey took center stage to belt out another incredible solo to close out the set.

After a brief break Lindsey and the band returned to the stage, thanking them and stating that they were “Everything you want in a hometown crowd. He then introduced his band members (Neale Heywood on guitar, Michael Urbano on drums, and Michael Kiyoka on keyboards. The band then ended the evening with “Love Is Here To Stay” and “Time.” By the time it was all said and done, Lindsey showed that even as a solo artist he is an incredible musician, and he doesn’t appear to even be close to stopping anytime soon.

Lindsey Buckingham appreciative of the fans who come out to the solo shows

Lindsey Buckingham looks past Fleetwood Mac ‘fiasco’ with upcoming solo tour.


Over the past four years, Fleetwood Mac gave him the boot, his wife filed for divorce, he lost his voice, nearly died, and watched the release of his long-awaited solo album get delayed several times. Oh, and then there was the whole pandemic thing.


“It’s certainly been an interesting few years, starting with the whole Fleetwood Mac fiasco,” Buckingham, 72, told The Chronicle, calling from his home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.


Yet the songwriter, best known as the band’s lead guitarist and singer on the 40 million-selling 1977 album “Rumours,” is full of hope as he prepares to kick off an extensive spring solo tour at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco on Tuesday, April 5.


The trek is in support of his seventh solo album, “Lindsey Buckingham,” which was completed nearly five years ago and finally released in September. The first leg of the tour in the fall saw him packing theaters with loyal fans, and many of his upcoming dates are sold out too.


But Buckingham is most looking forward to getting back onstage with the members of his former group — drummer Mick Fleetwood, bassist John McVie, keyboardist-vocalist Christine McVie and singer Stevie Nicks, who reportedly issued the ultimatum forcing the band to dump Buckingham ahead of its 2018  “An Evening With Fleetwood Mac” tour.

“These are people that were my family, dysfunctional or not, for close to 45 years,” Buckingham said.


The Palo Alto native joined Fleetwood Mac with then-girlfriend Nicks in 1974, after the pair graduated from high school in Atherton. They quickly became the identifiable faces and voices for the former British blues band, with Buckingham contributing hits like “Go Your Own Way,” “Tusk” and “The Chain.”


On the band’s recent tour, his position was jointly filled by Neil Finn of Crowded House and Mike Campbell of Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers, which Buckingham said made it feel like “a cover band.”


“It didn’t dignify the legacy that the five of us had built,” he said.
