Fleetwood Mac to perform at Dodger’s gala

Fleetwood Mac to give lone 2016 performance at Dodgers Stadium for team’s annual gala

Fleetwood Mac has announced its first concert following the Nov. 2015 wrap of its lengthy On With the Show tour. It’ll come in a familiar city, but it’s not the most familiar type of gig for the legendary band.

Major League Baseball’s Los Angeles Dodgers have tapped Fleetwood Mac to perform at their second annual Blue Diamond Gala on July 28. They’ll close out the night with a set from centerfield, following a blue carpet entrance (in honor of the Dodger colors) and a ceremony honoring Vin Scully, the iconic Dodgers announcer who plans to retire at season’s end.

The performance will be Fleetwood Mac’s only in 2016, according to the Dodgers’ official web site.

The event will also include Dodgers players and coaches, as well as event chairs Shelli and Irving Azoff. The band is currently managed by Azoff MSG Entertainment.

All proceeds from the evening will go towards the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation, which benefits underprivileged local communities.

Admission to the event — based on sponsorship packages — is also detailed on the Dodgers’ site.

The On With the Show tour saw the return of Christine McVie (who quit the band in 1998) thus reassembling its “classic” lineup alongside Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie. All five will perform at the Dodger gala.
