Lindsey Buckingham has booked his first concert since undergoing open-heart surgery last February. Buckingham is on the roster of performers at the "2020 Beale Street Music Festival," which runs in Memphis at Tom Lee Park from May 1st through the 3rd. posted the long-running festival will also feature sets by the Lumineers, the Avett Brothers, Toad The Wet Sprocket, Mavis Staples, and Taj Mahal, among others, with the full "2020 Beale Street Music Festival" lineup due out in early February. There's been no announcement regarding any further performances by Buckingham.

Lindsey Buckingham's recent heart surgery is said to have resulted in vocal cord damage -- which may have been due to a tracheotomy -- although no details of what procedures were undertaken have been revealed. A post-op photo of him and wife Kristen was posted across Lindsey's social media platforms and showed his face and neck severely bruised.

Buckingham made his only post-op appearance back on May 18th, when he accompanied his daughter Leelee at her final high school concert, where the chorus sang Fleetwood Mac's 1975 Stevie Nicks classic "Landslide" -- with Leelee taking the solo vocal.

Lindsey Buckingham told us that in terms of his songs, he considers himself to be more of a record maker than a conventional songwriter: "I do not necessarily consider myself to never a 'writer' in the sense that say, Burt Bacharach is a writer, where he sits down at a piano and comes up with a complete melody and Hal David comes up with a complete set of lyrics -- and that's it -- y'know, the song stands on its own. But my whole. . . the way that I look at myself is that I am not a writer in that sense. I am a stylist."
