Pop supergroup Fleetwood Mac is reuniting for a tour with a stop at Air Canada Centre in Toronto on April 16, 2013. All of the original members except Christine McVie will be part of the band’s line-up.
Fleetwood Mac scored a huge success with their 1977 studio album, Rumours, that included “Go Your Own Way,” “Don’t Stop,” “Dreams,” “You Make Loving Fun,” “Gold Dust Woman” and “The Chain.” The album sold over 40 million copies and was awarded the Grammy for Album of the Year. The group’s success was in large part due to their strong vocal harmonizations, producing the California soft-rock sound, as well as the individual songwriting abilities of members Mick Fleetwood, Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie, John McVie and Stevie Nicks. Ironically, the success of Rumours came as a result of friction among band members due to John and Christine McVie’s pending divorce and the dissolution of the long-term relationship between Buckingham and Nicks.
The band had seen previous success with their eponymously named album, Fleetwood Mac, that spawned “Rhiannon,” “Over My Head,” “Say You Love Me” and “Landslide,” which was later recorded by The Dixie Chicks.
