It's a Christmas miracle. Fleetwood Mac legend Lindsey Buckingham, who underwent open-heart surgery earlier this year, is ready to get back onstage.

The guitarist will perform at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, Tennessee. The annual event is scheduled for the weekend of May 1-3, 2020. It will be his first full show since December 2018. Also on the bill: Taj Mahal, Leon Bridges, Mavis Staples and Lil Wayne.

Buckingham feeling strong enough to perform live is especially good news, considering the reports that his heart surgery had caused damage to his vocal cords.

His last public appearance was in May, when he played guitar on a version of "Landslide" during his daughter's graduation ceremony.
