Lindsey Buckingham has been forced to postpone a U.K. tour that was scheduled to kick off this week due to an injury sustained by an unidentified member of his backing band.

The Fleetwood Mac star was due to kick off the nine-date U.K. trek at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham, England, on Thursday (Dec. 8), but he’s pulled all his gigs so his bandmate can recover. The tour was scheduled through a Dec. 19 gig in London.

“Lindsey Buckingham unfortunately needs to postpone his upcoming U.K. shows as his guitarist has severely injured his back and is not able to presently perform,” reads a post on his official website. “All tickets will be honored at the soon to be announced rescheduled dates.”

Buckingham recently sat down with Ultimate Classic Rock to discuss his solo career, calling it “modest by comparison” when sized up next to Fleetwood Mac, but emphasizing he’s used to it like that and wouldn’t expect things to be any other way.

“That is how it is and that’s how it has been for my entire solo career,” he said. “I do this for the love of doing it. I don’t make any money doing these [solo] tours. But as an artist I want to hold onto the ideal and [make music that has] a transcendent, religious quality.”
