After a three-year break, Fleetwood Mac is on the road and will play at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento this Saturday at 8 p.m.
Their current world tour began in April and will continue to Europe after more than 30 stops here in the U.S. The group will then carry on to Australia for the end of the year.
“Fleetwood Mac Live 2013,” promoted by Live Nation, will help celebrate the 35th anniversary of "Rumours." The highly successful album was released in 1977 and re-released this year from Rhino as a deluxe edition with new live tracks.
The group also has a new, four-song EP available. “Extended Play" was released April 30 and is now available, though it is sold exclusively on iTunes.
The four-member group on tour will include original members Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, along with Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, both of whom joined the group in 1975.
During the break, the members of Fleetwood Mac had no problem staying busy. Fleetwood opened his own restaurant, Fleetwood’s On Front Street, on Maui in Hawaii. Nicks spent 2011 and 2012 touring and also produced and co-directed (with David A. Stewart), “Stevie Nicks: In Your Dreams.” The documentary film follows Nicks as she writes and records the solo album of the same name. Buckingham spent his time touring as well. The focus of the tour was his solo album, “Seeds We Sow,” released in 2011.
Tickets for Saturday are still available and can be purchased online for $49.50 and up. If you cannot make the performance, follow the tour on Twitter with the hashtag, #FleetwoodMac2013.
