the 35^th 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 reissue 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
"After spending four days at Lindsey's house working on music and one really
fun day doing a crazy photo session, I am quite excited about next year.
Everything seems to be falling into place. 2013 looks like the year of
Fleetwood Mac," commented Stevie Nicks.
"I'm really looking forward to hitting the road with Stevie, Mick and John in
2013. It's been over three years sincewe've toured together and happily the
break allowed me to explore a lot of uncharted territory as well as experience
tremendous growth creatively. I'm excited to bring that back to the band.
When everyone in FM wants the same thing at the same time, it's cause for
celebration. Long Live Fleetwood Mac!" added Lindsey Buckingham.
"I'm really looking forward to going back on the road," commented John McVie.
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 6^th 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.
