In this season of comebacks and reunion tours, Fleetwood Mac does not want to be left behind and has made headlines just like Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Suede, The Who, Black Flag and The Rolling Stones. With these major bands of yesteryear making it big again, one may even feel like we have been transported back to the 1970’s and 1980’s.
What is most special about Fleetwood Mac’s comeback is that they have announced a UK tour as well. The British American Rock band has has not toured very often and their last album was released over ten years ago. Despite this, the band has managed to remain relevant till date, where many legendary bands have succumbed to a nostalgia trap.
The opportunity to get a rare glimpse of the rock goddess Stevie Nicks might be one of the major reasons behind all the excitement and hype among the fans. Moreover, this time the band’s classic line up, the ‘Big Four’ is going on tour. In 2013, John McVie, Stevie Nicks, Lindsay Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood will team up, though Christine McVie will be missing.
Modern musicians from Haim to Taylor Swift and Beyonce, have all been prominently influenced by Fleetwood Mac. The band, which was formed in 1967, has always remained timeless and the genuineness and vulnerability of their sound appeals to music lovers across all generations.
