Legendary folk-rock outfit, Fleetwood Mac have just announced a 34 date tour in 2013, beginning in April, that includes a stop at the HP Pavilion in San Jose on May 22nd.
This will be Fleetwood Mac’s first tour in four years. The current lineup for the tour includes Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. It will mark the 35th anniversary of their brilliant (arguably flawless) rock album, Rumors, which was a critical sensation that has sold more than 40 million copies. The group will be releasing a deluxe version of Rumors—complete with unreleased studio recordings and live tracks—to coincide with the anniversary tour.
While the Rumors-era Fleetwood Mac is perhaps the most famous version of Fleetwood Mac, it was not the original. McVie and Fleetwood started the group in 1967 as a very different blues-rock-oriented band. Buckingham and Nicks joined the group in 1975 and released the self-titled album—which was oddly was their second eponymous release (the first was in 1968)—featuring quintessential Fleetwood Mac tracks like “Rhiannon” and “Landslide” (famously covered by Smashing Pumpkins and the Dixie Chicks), “Rumors” was released two years later which marked a critical and financial peak for the group.
Tickets are $149.50, $79.50 and $49.50. Tickets go on sale Friday December 14th.
