History of the tour[edit]

The band played 101 shows in 9 countries around the world.[1]

This would be the last tour of Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks and Rick Vito with the band; Nicks and Vito would leave the group in 1991 and 1993 respectively, focusing on their solo careers. McVie meanwhile retired from touring in 1993 and left the group permanently in 1998. Both Nicks and McVie would later rejoin; in 1997 and 2014 respectively.

Nicks embraced the "big hair" era, with huge shoulder pads and long cut bustiers. She also started wearing many different hats of all shapes and sizes.[2]

The November 2 show in Philadelphia was originally scheduled for July 20, but it was cancelled because Christine McVie's father had died. Before the Boston show, the band showed up at Boston's Hard Rock Cafe, signing autographs and donated a guitar to their memorabilia collection. Fleetwood Mac fans swarmed the place and it was a huge media event in the city.

On the December 6 and 7 concerts in Oakland and Inglewood, Lindsey Buckingham made a guest appearance to play "Landslide" with Stevie during the set, then made another appearance during the set closer "Go Your Own Way" and the first encore number, "Tear It Up", where he engaged in guitar duels with Rick Vito and Billy Burnette.[3]

The Japanese leg of the tour was documented through a TV special which was filmed primarily at the Tokyo concerts.

During the tour, a video for the single "Skies the Limit" was filmed. It was shot at the June 13 show in Morrison, Colorado.

The opening acts for the tour were Squeeze, Jethro Tull and Daryl Hall & John Oates.[4]
