Fleetwood Mac, one of rock’s most enduring and successful bands, will embark on a US tour after a three year break beginning April 4th, 2013.
The tour was announced on Tuesday by the group and Live Nation, the tour’s national promoter. The band will play the BOK Center on May 1st.
Multi Grammy-winning and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees, Fleetwood Mac last toured in 2009. The new tour also marks the 35th anniversary of the release of their classic Rumours album, one of the most successful albums in recorded history with sales exceeding 40 million copies.
The current Fleetwood Mac lineup includes Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks.
“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 Fleetwood.
“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 since we’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.
Tickets for the show go on sale on December 17th. Ticket prices start at $49.50. For more information visit the BOK Center's website
