AFTER revealing the band’s tentative plans to tour the UK later this year, bizarrely on The One Show of all places, ‘70s rock survivors Fleetwood Mac have confirmed they’ll play Manchester for the first time in six years this autumn.

Currently winding its way across the US, the Rumours World Tour will dock at the M.E.N. Arena on October 27.

Featuring four of the original five who recorded the 1977 landmark album (Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, Christine McVie no longer tours), the quartet will be playing tracks from the record alongside hits from their substantial back-catalogue.

Including the hit singles Go Your Own Way, Dreams, Don’t Stop and You Make Loving Fun, the Grammy Award-winning Rumours has gone on to sell over 25 million copies worldwide.

And in conjunction with the tour, it will be re-released as part of a special CD/DVD box set, which will include previously unreleased tracks recorded during the making of the album.

Formed in 1967 by blue-rocks magician Peter Green, drummer and band custodian Fleetwood remains the only original member.

Fleetwood Mac play the M.E.N. Arena on Tuesday, October 27. £45, £60, £75. Fully seated show. Tickets go on sale on Friday, June 5 at 9am. Call 0844 847 8000.
