Fleetwood Mac Announce Tour to Celebrate 35th Anniversary of “Rumours”
After a three-year hiatus, Fleetwood Mac is heading out on a 34-city North American Tour starting April 4th. The first leg of the tour includes a stop at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center… on April 6th. No Atlantic City date has been announced yet.
The band is celebrating the 35th anniversary of their “Rumours” album, which sold 40 million copies worldwide and held Billboard’s No 1 spot for 31 weeks, scoring top 10 hits with “Dreams”, Don’t Stop”, “Go Your Own Way” and “You Make Loving Fun”.
Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie last toured in 2009 and haven’t released a studio album since 2003’s Say You Will.
Band members remain noncommittal on plans for a new album, but new tunes may be shoehorned into a set list packed with classics.
“There were some tracks John, Mick and I cut with Stevie in mind while she was on the road,” Buckingham says. “It’s the most Fleetwood Mac-sounding stuff I’ve heard in a long time. We’ve been talking about releasing an EP, but I don’t know how these moving parts will fit together yet.”
In light of the band’s deep catalog, the singer/guitarist isn’t concerned about a second consecutive tour without a studio album.
