Fleetwood Mac Announces First NZ Show Since 1980

Legendary super group Fleetwood Mac will return to New Zealand for the first time in nearly 30 years for an exclusive show at New Plymouth's beautiful TSB Bowl of Brooklands in December.

Following on the heels of their hugely successful 55-city sold out North American tour, Fleetwood Mac - Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie - will bring their 'Unleashed' tour to New Zealand on Saturday December 19. The tour is a two-hour plus celebration of all the greatest hits from undoubtedly one of the most enduring, celebrated and influential rock groups of all time.

Promoter Andrew McManus said: "I am thrilled to be bringing this incredible band back to New Zealand for this one-off concert. It's been nearly 30 years which is way too long! Fans will no doubt travel from all over the country to experience this legendary band."

"We love our band and think the title of the tour, 'Unleashed', perfectly describes how we all feel when we get on stage together - especially in 2009. We're so happy to be back out on the road where we'll perform everyone's favorite songs and see all our New Zealand fans," said Fleetwood Mac in a joint statement.

The band has received unanimous rave reviews on their US tour and enjoyed themselves so much that they have added a two month stint through Europe leading in to Australia and New Zealand in December.

And how's this for a set list?! 'Rhiannon', 'Dreams', 'The Chain', 'Tusk', 'Landslide', 'Gold Dust Woman', 'Say That You Love Me', 'Stand Back', 'Go Your Own Way', 'Don't Stop', 'Sara' and 'Never Going Back Again' to name just a few of their incredible classic hits! Their magnum opus 'Rumours'- the 1977 Grammy Award winner for Album of the Year - stands as one of THE greatest albums ever made.

With in excess of 40 million copies sold worldwide, its songs have unquestionably stood the test of time and still sound amazing. And according to the US reviewers, the band's supreme musicianship and superstar aura remain very much intact.
