Dec. 11, 1997


Although Fleetwood Mac's reunion
tour will close out 1997 as the fifth-highest
grossing tour of the year, the band is reportedly
not going to continue performing together in
1998.

Sources close to the band have said that
keyboardist Christine McVie is worn down
from the constant traveling during the band's
44-date tour, during which they grossed more
than $36 million.

The band plans to play a few additional shows
around the time of their induction into the Rock
And Roll Hall Of Fame early next year. Nicks
and Buckingham will use the time off to focus on
solo albums, according to a source at Warner
Bros.

Buckingham's album, which as of now is untitled
and has no release date, will comprise all original
songs. A source at Warner Bros. says the album
will be out most likely in the first half of 1998.

Nicks, on the other hand, is putting out a box set
tentatively scheduled for a Mar. 17th release on
Atlantic/Modern Records. Although a source
at Atlantic confirmed that the project is in the
works, he could not say how many discs it would
include or which songs would be featured. Stay
