It has been a little over 35 years since Rumours hit the billboard charts and over 40 years since the bands’ debut album. The magical finger-picking of Lindsey Buckingham, the mystical make you melt in your pants vocals of Stevie Nicks and the always steady and groovin’ rhythm section held down proudly by Jon McVie and Mick Fleetwood.
Tour dates are set up, vacation time is being requested and vinyls are coming out of storage in preparation for a very special summer. Confidently, lead vocalist Stevie Nicks states, ‘“2013 is going to be the year of Fleetwood Mac.’“
The band is even going to the lengths of extending the tour, adding on 13 more concert dates to the already stressful and hectic nine-weeks on the road. The band is doing its best to cater to the world of fans that absolutely love and support the group.
Shows will be performed all across North America, Europe and Australia. Extensions to the concert schedule will be revised and released to the public soon. Since the downfall of musical integrity, it is a phenomenal treat and a positive direction for the band. A breath of fresh air for die-hard rockers everywhere.
An addition to the show’s set list is a possibility. The band recently recorded two new songs that have the potential to make the list.
There is no new information regarding the appearance of Christine McVie. Since her retirement and departure from the group in 1998, she has not had very much activity with the group in almost 15 years.
It would be a treat for fans to watch them together doing what they do best: lifting up our spirits and taking our senses to a higher place.
The summer tour will hopefully be successful and will not become ‘“second-hand news.’“
Keep jammin’ Fleetwood Mac!
