The rumours are true - the legendary FLEETWOOD MAC will bring their On With The Show World Tour to Australia and New Zealand in 2015.
The On With The Show Tour will mark Fleetwood Mac’s first series of concert dates in Australia and 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 a selection of arena, stadium and winery shows this October - 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 Australian and 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.

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.
