Fleetwood Mac To Get Unleashed On 2009 Tour, Re-Release Rumours

Between Lindsey Buckingham solo shots, Vampire Weekend and Death Cab covers, and constantly finding excuses to spin Tusk and Rumours and etc., Fleetwood Mac is one of those “classic” bands that never seem to grow old. Unless you see them in person, because [SPOILER ALERT] they don’t look like that pic anymore. Next year you’ll be able to pair their timeless material with their timebound bodies: the Mac have promised new tunes, but their upcoming greatest hits tour, called Unleashed, is all about the old. For this first Fleetwood trek in five years, the group promise setlists featuring “all the Mac’s many greatest hits.” (Sorry Sheryl, this won’t include you, and it definitely doesn’t include Christine.) They’ll hit the road in March and continue on through spring and summer. The first 16 dates are confirmed:

03/01 – Pittsburgh, PA @ Mellon Arena
03/03 – St. Paul, MN @ Xcel Energy Center
03/05 – Chicago, IL @ Allstate Arena
03/08 – Detroit, MI @ Palace of Auburn Hills
03/10 – Washington, DC @ Verizon Center
03/11 – Boston, MA @ TD Banknorth Arena
03/13 – Uniondale, NY@ Nassau Coliseum
03/14 – Uncasville, CT @ Mohegan Sun Arena
03/16 – Rochester, NY @ Blue Cross Arena
03/17 – Albany, NY @ Times Union Center
03/19 – New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden
03/21 – East Rutherford, NJ @ Izod Center
03/24 – Ottawa, ON @ Scotiabank Place
03/25 – Montreal, QC @ Bell Centre
03/26 – Toronto, ON @ Air Canada Centre

Tix go on sale 12/15 at Live Nation and Ticketmaster. Looks like I might be at MSG on my birthday. In conjunction with the tour, Fleetwood Mac’s re-releasing Rumours as a CD/DVD package, with previously unreleased tracks and some footage you’ve never seen. That album’s only sold 19 million copies so far, so this should help boost those numbers.
