If you have ever wanted to Go Your Own Way and see Fleetwood Mac live, you will be able to do so on May 12, 2013 at the MTS Centre.
The rock band, whose biggest hits included Go Your Own Way and Rhiannon, will perform at the MTS Centre as one of the stops on a major 34-city North American tour dubbed Fleetwood Mac Live 2013.
Tickets for all Canadian dates will go on sale Dec. 17, with more details to follow in the coming days.
This tour will mark the 35th anniversary of the release of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours album (1977), one of the most successful albums in recorded history with sales exceeding 40 million copies. Rumours was at the top of the pop charts for over 31 weeks and had four top-ten singles.
The current Fleetwood Mac lineup includes Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, both original members since 1967, as well as 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 survive," Mick Fleetwood said in a media release. "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."
Fleetwood Mac last toured in 2009 with the sold-out Unleashed tour which stopped in Winnipeg on June 6, 2009.
