Fleetwood Mac, one of rock's most enduring, beloved and successful bands, will embark on a major North American tour after a three year break beginning on April 4, 2013 in Columbus, Ohio. In addition to five other Canadian cities, the Fleetwood Mac Live 2013 arena tour will include a stop at Ottawa's Scotiabank Place on Tuesday, April 23. Tickets will go on sale on Monday, Dec. 17, at 10 a.m.
Multi Grammy-winning and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees, Fleetwood Mac last toured in 2009 with the sold out "Unleashed" tour. The new tour also marks the 35th anniversary of the release of their classic Rumours album (1977), one of the most successful albums in recorded history with sales exceeding 40 million copies. Rumours planted itself at the top of the pop charts for over 31 weeks and had four top ten singles.
To coincide with the tour and anniversary, a new deluxe re-issue of Rumours with previously unreleased studio and live tracks will be released in early 2013 from Rhino. More details on the set will be announced soon.
The current Fleetwood Mac lineup includes Mick Fleetwood and John McVie - both original members since 1967, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks who joined the band in 1975.
"Having started Fleetwood Mac with John McVie in 1967, it has always been so gratifying that despite the various incarnations, the band has survived. Throughout the years, though, the one thing that has remained constant is our fans. I am looking forward to getting back behind the kit, reconnecting with the fans and sharing the stage with my fellow band members," commented Mick Fleetwood.
Nicks has just completed a two year tour coinciding with the release of her critically acclaimed In Your Dreams CD which debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Pop Charts. In Your Dreams was released on Reprise Records in 2011, and was co-written and co-produced by Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard. Nicks also produced and co-directed a documentary film of the recording of In Your Dreams which has received rave reviews at the Hamptons International Film Festival along with several other film festivals.
Buckingham has been touring to sold-out crowds over the last year in conjunction with his critically acclaimed September 2011 release of Seeds We Sow, his sixth solo studio album and first independent release, which debuted at No. 6 on Billboard's Rock Album Chart. He was recently honored with ASCAP's Golden Note Award, and has also received the prestigious Les Paul Award.
In August, Mick Fleetwood opened his brand new restaurant, Fleetwood's On Front Street, in Lahaina on Maui. The grand opening included musical performances by Mick, Steven Tyler, Jonny Lang and more. Mick also founded Mick Fleetwood's Private Cellar, which has produced over 20 vintages and varietals earning multiple medals in international tastings. Mick's band, The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, was nominated for a Grammy in 2010 for its album Blue Again.
John McVie has spent the past three years enjoying his family and solitude at home in Hawaii.
