The most popular lineup of Fleetwood Mac, the iconic "Rumours"-era quintet, is reuniting after 16 years and Thursday morning announced a fall-winter tour that will stop at the BB&T Center in Sunrise on Dec. 19.
Tickets for LiveNation's On With the Show tour are $45.25-$175.25 and go on sale 10 a.m. April 7; various presales, including a VIP package, begin 10 a.m. March 31 at Ticketmaster.com.
The reunion was revealed during a taped Carson Daly “Today” interview with the long-estranged Christine McVie joining Fleetwood Mac band mates Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. Amid much hand-holding among the band, Christine McVie told Daly the reason she stopped performing with her fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famers after 1998's The Dance Tour: She was afraid to fly.
During Fleetwood Mac’s 2013 tour, the four members welcomed Christine McVie onstage at London’s O2 Arena, where she lent her sturdy and much-missed vocal to the classic “Don’t Stop” and received a wild ovation.
“It was so comfortable being back onstage with them, as if no time had passed, and then we all started talking and it feels like the time is right. I’m really happy,” she says.
That tour was the last time Fleetwood Mac was scheduled to play the BB&T Center, but the June 2013 performance was canceled due to a “scheduling conflict.” A June show in Montreal also was canceled. That fall the band canceled all 14 tour dates in Australia and New Zealand as John McVie was being treated for cancer.
John McVie, looking well-tanned but delicate, told Daly on Thursday that his health now is “good.”
