PRESS RELEASE:

FLEETWOOD MAC

ON WITH THE SHOW TOUR
NEW ZEALAND 2015

ALL FIVE ORIGINAL BAND MEMBERS BACK TOGETHER

FRIDAY MARCH 20, 2015 – The rumours are true - the legendary FLEETWOOD MAC will bring their On With The Show World Tour to New Zealand in 2015.

The On With The Show Tour will mark Fleetwood Mac’s first series of concert dates in New Zealand since 2009’s sold-out Unleashed Tour.

Touring as a five-piece for the first time since 1998, one of music’s most enduring groups of all time, Fleetwood Mac, will play two stadium shows this November.

All five original band members are back together, with Christine McVie rejoining band mates Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks after a 16-year absence.

The news of Fleetwood Mac’s return is particularly welcomed by New Zealand fans after the band were unfortunately forced to cancel their sold-out 2013 dates.

The On With The Show Tour will see Fleetwood Mac on stage for close to two and a half hours, showcasing hits and classic songs from their career that spans more than four decades and global album sales in excess of 100 million, including songs such as: “The Chain”, “Dreams”, “Second Hand News”, “Rhiannon”, “Sara”, “Gold Dust Woman”, “Tusk”, “Looking Out for Love”, “Don’t Stop”, “Go Your Own Way”…and the list goes on and on.

Tickets for both shows go on sale at 10am on Wednesday April 1.

American Express Card Members will have an opportunity to purchase tickets before the general public from midday Tuesday March 24. Visit facebook.com/AmericanExpress for complete pre-sale information.

My Live Nation members can also be among the first to secure tickets during the pre-sale beginning at midday on Friday March 27. For complete details visit: www.livenation.co.nz.

Fleetwood Mac’s sold out shows throughout North America have garnered rave reviews.

"The principal emotion during the nearly 2 1/2-hour performance was the joy of having keyboardist McVie back in this group… She brought high harmonies and several songs, including 'Little Lies,' 'You Make Loving Fun' and the closing 'Songbird,' back into the repertoire. Nicks hasn't sounded this good since the early '90's. What a rhythm machine and what an articulate emotional guitarist Buckingham is." - Minneapolis Star Tribune

"It's still magical. Between Buckingham's epic guitar solos, Mick Fleetwood's massive drumming, John McVie's strong bass work, Nicks' patented spins to punctuate the lovely 'Gypsy' and Christine McVie's lush vocals, Fleetwood Mac looked ready to take on what Buckingham has called 'the next chapter.'" - Newsday

"Fleetwood Mac has the intricacy, elegance and underlying punch of its songs…" – The New York Times.

"With Christine's songs back in the set, her calm, angular presence back on the stage, there was an undeniable feeling of rejuvenation... Fleetwood and John McVie on bass reminded concert-goers why the band is named for them... They still put a layer of muscle behind everything the band did... Buckingham was ferocious and tireless as lead guitar. This man is a vital musical presence – the soul of the band. Ditto for the vitality of Nicks, its cauldron-stirring spirit... Her showcase songs, 'Landslide,' 'Gold Dust Woman' and, especially 'Silver Springs,' were the night's highlights." - Chicago Tribune

This is a tour not be missed.

Hi, you are reading from the Press Release supplied by the touring company, as marked. That was not written by UTR.

It is the standard process for UTR to publish press releases for tour announcements so show-goers can garner all the information provided by the touring company. We never referred to the group as the "originals" in our own written copy, which is the brief portion of text at the top of the post. The two pieces are clearly separated and the Press Release clearly marked as such, thanks.
