Fleetwood Mac Announces New Jersey Tour Dates
Fleetwood Mac has finally announced tour dates with its new lineup–but New Jerseyans have to wait until ncxt March to see the show.
The tour–which will begin this October in Tulsa, OK– will feature the band’s new lineup: Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell, and Crowded House frontman and former Split Enz member Neil Finn.
“We’ll be performing all the hits that the fans love, plus we’ll be surprising our audiences with some tracks from our historic catalogue of songs. Fleetwood Mac has always been a creative evolution,” said the band in a statement. “We look forward to honoring that spirit on this upcoming tour.”
The Tri-State area dates include: Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, on March 9, Madison Square Garden, New York City, March 11, The Prudential Center, Newark, March 13 and April 4 at the Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, Pa.
Earlier this morning, the band appeared on CBS to discuss the tour and reasons behind its split with Lindsey Buckingham.
“This team wanted to get out on the road, and one of the members didn’t want to go out on the road for a year and we just couldn’t agree,” Stevie Nicks said. “And when you’re in a band it’s a team.I have a solo career and I love my solo career and I’m the boss. But I’m not the boss in this band.”
“It became just a huge impasse,” drummer and cofounder Mick Fleetwood said. “We hit a brick wall where we decided we had to part company.”
