After a 16-year absence, Christine McVie will be re-joining Fleetwood Mac bandmates Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks as they launch the On With The Show Tour. The tour will kick off on Tuesday, September 30, in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the Target Center and the reunited band will perform 34 shows in 33 cities across North America. The San Diego show date is set for Tuesday, December 2, at Viejas Arena at San Diego State University. Christine has not toured with the band since 1998’s The Dance Tour.
The reunion of the multi-Grammy Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, and one of rock’s most beloved bands was announced during an interview with Carson Daly on NBC’s Today Show.
American Express card members can purchase tickets before the general public through Sunday, April 6, at 10pm. Tickets go on sale beginning Monday, April 7, through the Live Nation mobile app and at www.livenation.com.
During Fleetwood Mac’s 2013 tour, the four members happily welcomed Christine back on the stage during their show at London’s O2 Arena, where she performed their classic “Don’t Stop” and received a wild ovation from the crowd. “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 commented. “As far as we’re concerned, she’s never really left. We are overjoyed to have Christine back on stage with us,” said the other members of Fleetwood Mac in a joint statement.
Fleetwood Mac is also scheduled to appear on Today’s Summer Concert Series on the Plaza At Rockefeller Center on October 9. (www.fleetwoodmac.com)
