History of the tour[edit]

Although the album Tango in the Night included Lindsey Buckingham, the guitarist quit at a band meeting to discuss the tour. "We'd signed the contracts," Stevie Nicks noted. "We couldn't call in and say, 'Oh, we can't do the tour.' We had to do it, or Fleetwood Mac would have been sued forever." [1]

Buckingham was replaced by rockabilly singer and guitarist Billy Burnette and lead guitarist and session musician Rick Vito. The former contributed to Mick Fleetwood's solo album I'm Not Me, as a member of Mick Fleetwood's Zoo. Nicks, recently recovered from cocaine addiction, was prescribed a heavy duty tranquilizer, to which she became addicted until the mid 90s.

The band played at the Rock am Ring Festival in Nürburg, Germany, on June 4, 1988. The crowd in attendance was 80.000.[2]

This tour was filmed during the San Francisco shows (December 12-13) and released on VHS as Fleetwood Mac:Tango in the Night. Cruzados and The Adventures were the opening act of the tour.[3]
