Monday, 27th May 2013 8:36AM

Fleetwood Mac have announced a New Zealand show in December. The band reunited last December upon the re-release of their classic album Rumours and have since released a new EP title Extended Play (available exclusively via iTunes by the looks). They last played Auckland in 1980, returning in 2009 to play New Plymouth's Bowl of Brooklands and were apparently scheduled to play Dunedin this time round but a change of promoter saw the show moved to Auckland's Vector Arena.   Here are the details followed by a track from their new EP.
