Fleetwood Mac To Play Winery On Australian Tour
by Paul Cashmere - August 15 2009

Expect an announcement any day now for Fleetwood Mac with an Australian winery included as part of their Unleashed tour.

The Australian and New Zealand tour is set for December and will include one winery show, Undercover hears.

Current published dates for Fleetwood Mac’s Unleashed Tour take them through Europe to November 6th. Australasia is next.

The Unleashed tour is a greatest hits tour. There is no new music from Fleetwood Mac in the works. In a phone hook-up with Undercover, Lindsey Buckingham said that not having new music on this tour "frees you up to enjoy each other as people. Let’s have a good time and value the friendships and history. It takes the pressure off and allows more fun than we would normally be able to have."

The Fleetwood Mac line-up is Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie. Christine McVie has been out of the band for more than a decade now and happily living the retired life in England. "I’ve been the only girl in Fleetwood Mac since 1998, so I’m used to it now,” Stevie said during the conference all. “But I miss Christine. The loss of Christine as one of my best girlfriends was horrific to me. Not a day goes by that I don’t wish she would call up and say, 'I’m back.' "

An official announcement for the tour is due soon.
