Fleetwood Mac Concert Tour Dates:
Fleetwood Mac are a British-American rock lineup formed in 1967 in London. The only original member present in the ensemble is its namesake drummer, Mick Fleetwood. Despite ensemble spearhead Peter Green naming the group by combining the surnames of two of his former bandmates (Fleetwood, McVie) from John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, bassist John McVie played neither on their first single nor at their first concerts. The keyboardist, Christine McVie, has, to date, appeared on all but two albums, either as a member or as a session musician. She also supplied the artwork for the album Kiln House.
The two most popular periods for the ensemble were during the late 1960s British blues boom, when they were led by guitar player Peter Green and achieved a UK number one with “Albatross”; and from 1975 to 1987, with more pop-orientation, featuring Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. Fleetwood Mac’s second album after the incorporation of Nicks and Buckingham, 1977’s Rumours, produced four U.S. Top 10 singles (which included Nicks’ song “Dreams”, which was the band’s first and only U.S. number one) and remained at #1 on the American copies chart for 31 weeks, as well as climbing to the top spot in assorted countries around the world. To date the album has sold over 40 million copies worldwide, making it the ninth highest selling record of all time.
