Fleetwood Mac Prepares to Go on Tour, Dominate New Year
Posted by Newson 12/04/2012 at 8:51 AM
We bet you were wondering what 2013 was going to be the year of. The year of funny hats? The year of global warming? The year of Channing Tatum (again)? It’s been a mystery until this point, but is now a mystery no longer, with Stevie Nicks’ revelation to Rolling Stone that her band, the legendary pop/rock outfit Fleetwood Mac, would be reuniting for a new tour next spring, their first since 2010. “It’s the perfect time to go back out,” Stevie Nicks said of the tour to Rolling Stone. “2013 is going to be the year of Fleetwood Mac.”
Bandmate Lindsey Buckingham also got into the nitty gritty of the setlist, predicting about “75% hits” for the tour. “We always have to play ‘Dreams,’ ‘Rhiannon,’ ‘Don’t Stop,’ ‘Tusk,’ ‘Big Love,’ ‘Landslide’ and all our most famous songs,” said Buckingham. “Maybe we’ll play more songs from Tusk. I’d also like to see an extended middle portion of the show that’s just me and Stevie.” And Stevie adds one more crucial detail: “We actually have two new Fleetwood Mac songs that I cut with Lindsey two weeks ago we might play…I had a really good time working with him for four days at his house. I got to hang out with his family and his kids, his grown up kids, and really connect with him again. ”
