St. Paul's Xcel Center The Second Stop on 2009 Tour.


The '70s vets, sans Christine McVie, have picked St. Paul's Xcel Center as the second stop on their 2009 tour.

The rumors are true: Fleetwood Mac is hitting the road yet again next year, and the second stop on its tour will be March 3 at St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center. Tickets go on sale Dec. 15 at prices yet to be announced.

Performing without singer/keyboardist Christine McVie since her departure in 1997, the group will be out promoting yet another greatest-hits collection, "Unleashed," plus a newly expanded CD/DVD version of its landmark 1977 album "Rumors." This is the band's first tour since 2005, when it played two nights at the X.

One rumor that has been discounted by the band: Stevie Nicks' pal Sheryl Crow will not be filling in for McVie on tour, as Crow herself suggested in interviews.
