Fleetwood Mac has not only confirmed a 2013 tour, but released the 34-dates for the latest reunion – their first since 2009.
The band’s tour launches in April and will play Philips Arena June 10, the second-to-last-date of the jaunt, which will feature Stevie Nicks, Lindsay Buckingham, Mick Fleetwod and John McVie. Keyboardist/singer Christine McVie retired from touring with the band in 1998.
Nicks has spoken about a Mac return a lot lately, even mentioning that the band has recorded a pair of new songs that might make it to the live set list.
Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Dec. 17.
Also with an Atlanta date is the double bill of Rod Stewart and Steve Winwood. Their “Live the Life” tour is only playing nine cities, including Atlanta April 28, also at Philips Arena. Ticket information for that date hasn’t been released yet, but tickets for earlier dates on the tour, which starts April 10 in Chicago, are in the $40-$160 range.
