Fleetwood Mac Extends Concert Attack

Not only is the Mac back in 2009, but the band has added a slew of dates for June.

The additional dates are being described by band representatives as an extension of the second leg of the tour. Kind of like an annex with stops ranging from Salt Lake City at the Energy Solutions Arena on June 3 to June 20 when the group lands in the Big Easy for a show at the New Orleans Arena.

In between look for Fleetwood Mac appearing in Saskatoon at the Credit Union Arena on June 5; Winnipeg at the MTS Center on June 6; Milwaukee at the Bradley Center on June 8 and Baltimore at the 1st Mariner Arena on June 10.

Other stops include New York City (June 11); Atlantic City (June 13); Manchester, NH (June 16); Uncasville, CT (June 17) and Nashville (June 19).

When it comes to band names, Fleetwood Mac has to be one of the luckiest groups in the world. The moniker comes from when founder Peter Green combined the last names of Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie, who replace the group’s original bass player when the band was only a few weeks old. 42 years and several personnel changes later, Fleetwood and McVie are still playing in the band.

Along with Fleetwood and McVie, the band’s touring lineup consists of Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, both of whom helped spearhead the band's comeback in the mid '70s.
Fleetwood Mac has been on the road since their first date on March 1st at Pittsburgh’s Mellon Arena. The group’s performances have earned accolades from normally difficult-to-impress critics, including a write-up in the Chicago Sun-Times, which wrote, “Fleetwood Mac offers a love affair to last.”
