Fleetwood Mac has Tampa date
Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Fleetwood Mac will be embarking on a 34-city U.S. tour after a three year break beginning April 4.
The tour was announced today by the group and Live Nation, the tour's national promoter. Fleetwood Mac Live 2013 arena tour includes stops in Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, Chicago and a special appearance at the historic Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
Oh yeah, and a June 7 date at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.
Price haven't been announced yet but tickets for the first run of shows go on sale Dec. 14 at Ticketmaster.com.
To coincide with the tour and anniversary, a new deluxe reissue of the band's bestselling 1977 album "Rumours" with previously unreleased studio and live tracks will be released in early 2013 from Rhino.
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," Mick Flettwood said in a statement. "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."
Nicks also made a statement.
"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," she said.
