Fleetwood Mac Reuniting for Farewell Tour

Fleetwood Mac fans just got the news they've been waiting for. The iconic '70s band plans to reunite for a farewell tour next year! Keyboardist Christine McVie confirmed the news on the BBC TV show The One Show this summer. "We're going to start rehearsing in March, next year," she told host Alex Jones. "The tour is around June. It will be global." Fleetwood Mac vocalist Stevie Nicks mentioned a possible tour in a Rolling Stone interview back in March. Now, McVie's comments seem to confirm the "rumours" once and for all. Fleetwood Mac last headlined a show back in November 2015. So fans of the band probably feel like this reunion is long overdue!

Pleas oh please have Jacksonville or Atlanta on the tour!

I need to see them live. Preferably at the Forum.

I love me some Fleetwood Mac. But come on. They have had like 4 previous "Farewell Tours". I'm with 726. It's about the money.

Will Peter Green, Jeremy Spencer and Danny Kirwan be there? If not, forget it. The 1970's version of this band ("Rumors", etc.) was a bunch of drugged-out people arguing with each other while creating boring lite rock. No thanks...

So, I take it you are not a fan of the 1973 Buckingham Nicks album? While Rumors is incredible, Tusk is perhaps my favorite of their songs for it's quads arrangement.

Of course it is, it's not about the "art", just ask Nickelback and Creed.

Alex Jones sucks.

Cher should sue them for stealing her very successful "farewell tour" industry. I'll be honest, Fleetwood Mac was fairly entertaining, definitely not great, but I wouldn't pay $5 to see them today. And I'll bet you the tickets are over $100 even for the cheap seats. NO thanks.

Indy: I can think of no greater slur than to be called a 'hipster'.

Peter Green helped found the band, and he is still alive and playing. Why not include someone described as 'better than Clapton', and who saw Carlos Santana cover one of his songs? Oh yea, because he plays that scary Blues music, rather than something that two old ladies can sing while spinning around stage like they're at a happening in Golden Gate Park in 1968...

You know, it is possible that two people have differing opinions without one being lame and other "correct."

I am a fan of both the bluesy version of Fleetwood Mac and their later, unabashedly pop style. They were making smart, engaging music for as long as any band could reasonably hope. The recent Buckingham/Christine McVie record sounds pretty good, what I've heard. I saw the Mac at their peak in the late 70s (I was just a kid!) and might consider going to see them again if the price is right. Which it likely will NOT be, because mainstream concert prices are ridiculous these days.

You goobers realize that 'Rumours' and 'Tusk' were over 40 years ago? BTW, Tusk was their best album.

I wonder how many people will be listening to the crappy casio-sounding music being played today 40 years later?

Lindsay Buckingham is the greatest guitarist of popular music, ever! Keep your blues guitarists, I am talking about true virtuosity and the ability to construct a good song. Many, many guitarists were great but they couldn't construct a listenable song.

"Tusk was their best album." Unless we're counting the Dance live album :P

They're about 70 years old. They may snort some metamucil.
