"In the head we are still young"

Tuesday, 6 October 2009

Mick Fleetwood, founder, namesake and drummer of Fleetwood Mac, has left his beloved island in the Pacific and is touring for the first time since 2004 with Stevie Nicks, Lindsay Buckingham and John McVie to the world.

The concerts are under the motto "Unleashed" ( "Unleashed"), containing all the hits and take about two and a half hours. On 19 October, they will present their program at the O2 Arena. Steffen Rüth advance telephoned briefly with the native Britons.

Berliner Morgenpost: Good morning, Mick. Where can we catch you, then?

Mick Fleetwood: In Hawaii. Three years ago, I am completely moved here, before that I was only a few months a year there. I'm in love with the island, my wife and my two twin daughters, Ruby and Tessa, are seven years old and going to school, feeling incredibly well in Hawaii. The two are still young and I think the old man on his legs. I had the great fortune to start with mid-50s once again a family. My two older daughters are already in their thirties. I like the lifestyle here, even if I do not surf. For that I am now really too big and too heavy.

Berliner Morgenpost: Are you at 61 and after 40 years of fierce musicians are happy with your health?

Mick Fleetwood: Oh yes, that's me really. As a drummer I need strength, and I did. I make a lot of sport and do not think that I have become weaker. Healthwise I am doing very well. Better than I was doing most of my adult life. I've felt in any case more than ever now. When I took drugs when I drank. That is over. But I know that I'm not 20 any more. I'm sure with my almost two meters, the back pain if I have to get up after five hours ride in the tour bus.

Berliner Morgenpost: Is age an issue of attitude?

Mick Fleetwood: There's something to it. I am very young in mind, I would say. I still feel very much energy in me. I'm full of lust for life. I am no one reclining in a rocking chair and says, "That was it. I only read books and usually do nothing more."

Berliner Morgenpost: They get along really, when you are together on a world tour?

Mick Fleetwood: We do our best (laughs). We all have become familiar in recent years, sedentary, adult. Even though this sounds funny when spoken by people around the 60th

Berliner Morgenpost: What does adult behavior?

Mick Fleetwood: Responsible. We take care of us, we no longer sit up all night and get drunk somewhere around us after each concert. That you do not think through - and you want it at all any more. Thus, it is easier now because we only have the concert. Previously we had after the concert until the real show, the party.

Berliner Morgenpost: Do you miss the good old days?

Mick Fleetwood: No, not really. Not at all. Are you growing out sometime. I would not swap my life I have today, with the life I had as a 25-year-old.

Berliner Morgenpost: What makes you think of bands from each other?

Mick Fleetwood: Good. Much better. The past with our whole relationship highs and lows within the band is indeed documented in great detail. It was a strange and sometimes really difficult trip with this band, it was not always everything, but the point is: Here we are. We are musicians, we like to play together that makes us really very happy. Now I'm sitting here as relaxed as an elderly English gentleman, but on stage I can be wild and dramatic, this is a good balance.

Berliner Morgenpost: What do you think, why people want to still see Fleetwood Mac?

Mick Fleetwood: Fleetwood Mac When we were constantly aware that it is the audience that was what made us. I think I speak for all members of the group: We care. We have never been indifferent or uninterested to our fans.

Berliner Morgenpost: The last album "Say You Will" has been released over five years ago. Will you play at the concerts and new songs?

Mick Fleetwood: Yes. We will play songs that we know that people they may be. For the first time in the career of Fleetwood Mac, we come without a new album. But with a program that gives the people what they want. New songs will be this time are not between us and the audience. We will embark on a journey that all know already.

Berliner Morgenpost: So there will be many famous songs from your album. Can you explain why, "Rumors", which appeared in 1977, has become one of the most popular and successful records in pop history?

Mick Fleetwood: Yes, I think I can explain. The band then vibrated, there was a lot of interpersonal dynamics. The relationships we have with each other, just fascinated. Another factor was that we were practically three different bands in one, with the voices of Christine, Stevie and Lindsey. Nevertheless, we harmonized vocally. The album also had a lot of content, emotional chaos, it was crazy. John and Chris were married and separated just Stevie and Lindsay fell apart, too. We all slept together and had to somehow incorporate them in the music.

Berliner Morgenpost: The music itself is timeless, right?

Mick Fleetwood: That's it. The album musically as such has survived. It does not sound outdated today. They started experimenting with drum machines and such stuff, which meant that many records from the eighties sound antiquated. Our albums were truly organic and have remained contained. The songs finally hung together as a complete, powerful work, not a single number dropped off over the others. Such a thing is rare.

Berliner Morgenpost: You have never made a secret of it, where are you politically.

Mick Fleetwood: Why should we? We are left. Where is justice denied, violence comes into play. We civilized nations should other ways of dealing as the master of war. There are always alternatives.

Berliner Morgenpost: "Do not Stop" They have played in 1993 at the inauguration of Bill Clinton ...

Mick Fleetwood: ... and at his departure from the White House again. Bill is a good guy. Unfortunately, there was no time then U.S. president, for whom we would want to occur. And Obama, whom we all appreciate very much, has indeed committed dear Bruce Springsteen. But if he hands over to Hillary in 2017, then I very much hope that we are there again.

Op woensdag 14 oktober komt Fleetwood Mac naar het Antwerpse Sportpaleis . Het concert is al maanden helemaal uitverkocht. Een flink aantal tickets, dat om productionele reden niet in verkoop was gebracht, is nu vrijgegeven. Het betreft hier plaatsen met zijdelings zicht op het podium, laat Live Nation weten. De tickets voor de show in Antwerpen zijn vanaf nu te koop. Een dag later is Fleetwood Mac ook te zien in Ahoy Rotterdam. Enkel betalingen met credit card kunnen via proximusgoformusic worden aanvaard gezien het concert al binnen goed 10 dagen plaatsvindt.

Elke rechtgeaarde muziekliefhebber heeft 'Rumours' van Fleetwood Mac in huis. Het legendarische, met een Grammy Award onderscheiden, album uit 1977 is dan ook één van de meest verkochte albums uit de geschiedenis van de popmuziek. Fleetwood Mac wordt eind jaren 60 door Peter Green in Engeland opgericht. Mick Fleetwood en John McVie, die samen met Green deel uitmaakten van John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, sluiten zich bij hem aan. De eerste twee albums zijn dan ook zeer blues gericht.

De eerste bandwissels worden doorgevoerd. Het geluid van de groep evolueert mee met de komst van nieuwe leden. Eind 1974 verkassen de enige overgebleven originele bandleden Fleetwood en McVie naar de VS. Christine McVie -vrouw van- is intussen al tot Fleetwood Mac toegetreden. Met de komst van het duo Stevie Nicks en Lindsey Buckingham krijgt de groep een geheel nieuwe impuls. Tot mid jaren 80 rijgen ze de hits aan mekaar. Wereldhits zoals 'Go Your Own Way', 'Don't Stop', 'Dreams', 'Sara' en 'Little Lies' weerklinken nog elke dag op de radio. De fameuze 'Rumours' bezetting komt in 1993 opnieuw samen voor de inauguratie van Bill Clinton als president van de VS. Een tournee volgt.

Nadat Fleetwood Mac wordt opgenomen in de Rock and Roll Hall of Fame houdt Christine McVie het definitief voor bekeken. Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Stevie Nicks en Lindsey Buckingham toeren dit jaar de wereld rond.

This is the translation - which are always funny to read - they are indicating that tickets to Antwerp are being made available - with side views of the stage.


On Wednesday, October 14 Fleetwood Mac comes to the Antwerp Sportpaleis. The concert is completely sold out for months. A large number of tickets that productional reason for not selling had been, is now released. These are places with side view of the stage, let Live Nation know. Tickets for the show in Antwerp are now available. A day later, Fleetwood Mac is also seen in Ahoy Rotterdam. Single payments via credit card can proximusgoformusic be accepted given the concert already well within 10 days occurs.

Any right-minded music lover has "Rumors" by Fleetwood Mac in the house. The legendary, Grammy Award with a distinct album from 1977 is one of the most sold albums in the history of pop music. Fleetwood Mac is 60 years late by Peter Green formed in England. Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, who along with Green were part of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, align themselves with him. The first two albums are very blues oriented.

The first tire changes are made. The sound of the group evolves with the advent of new members. Relocate in late 1974 the only remaining original band Fleetwood and McVie to the U.S.. Christine McVie-wife-has now been joined to Fleetwood Mac. With the arrival of the duo Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham gives the group a whole new impetus. Until mid 80s stringing them the hits to each other. World Hits like "Go Your Own Way ',' Do not Stop ',' Dreams', 'Sara' and 'Little Lies' echo every day on the radio. The famous" Rumors' occupation comes together again in 1993 for the inauguration of Bill Clinton as president of the USA. A tour follows.

When Fleetwood Mac is included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Christine McVie is definitely for the views. Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham this year touring the world.

The UK Version of "The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac" will be released on October 19th. This 2 disc version was released in North America in late 2002 with a shorter single disc version being released in the UK around the same time. All this to coincide with the UK leg of the Unleashed Tour.

At least something is being released ahead of the tour in the UK. Not like in North America where we never did see the release of the CD/DVD version of Rumours that was talked about so much. You know, the one that was all over the tour press releases and talked about during interviews by the many of the band members? Wonder what happened with that?

Fans can look forward to a few surprises!

There’s good news for Fleetwood Mac fans with the AOR gods announcing a second consecutive night at the Dublin O2 on October 25. Tickets priced €86.25 go on sale on Friday September 4 at 9am.

The North American leg of the Unleashed tour has been eliciting rave reviews with the band augmenting their greatest hits with personal favourites and solo tracks that, in some cases, haven’t been performed live since the ‘70s.

It's being reported by the press and fans alike that Fleetwood Mac's date in Rotterdam at Ahoy October 15th has sold out within just hours of tickets going on sale. If ticket selling in Holland is anything like ticket selling in North America, it's likely not the case. I'm sure that tickets will show up on ticket resale sites for higher amounts then face value, and the closer to the show date you get, there are usually tickets dropped. So be persistent and keep checking if you missed out today getting yourself tickets. Many fans lucked out in North America by waiting until almost the last minute to buy tickets for a show - ending up with super great tickets in the first few rows of the venue and not having to pay massive amounts of cash to get them.

Fleetwood Mac verkoopt Ahoy uit
Het was te verwachten, vandaag ging het concert van Fleetwood Mac in de voorverkoop en na slechts twee keer knipperen, was het alweer gedaan met de kaarten. De mensen die het is gelukt om wel een ticket te bemachtigen, wensen we natuurlijk veel plezier.

De groep geeft op 15 oktober een concert in Ahoy in Rotterdam. Het is voor het eerst sinds 1994 dat de legendarische Brits-Amerikaanse band weer in Nederland staat.

Fleetwood Mac åbner turné i Parken

Det over 40 år gamle band kommer til København og giver koncert 8. oktober.

Den legendariske rockgruppe Fleetwood Mac indleder sin kommende Europa-turné i Parken i København, hvor gruppen giver koncert den 8. oktober.

Bandets historie går tilbage til 1967, og to af grundlæggerne, Mick Fleetwood og John McVie er med i København.

Første turné i fem år
De får selskab af Lindsey Buckingham og Stevie Nicks, der kom til i 1974 og i de følgende år bidrog til en række af Fleetwood Macs største succeser, blandt dem albummet "Rumours", som mange regner for juvelen i deres karriere.

Gruppen har tidligere spillet i Danmark ved enkelte lejligheder, men aldrig med Buckingham og Nicks.

Turnéen er Fleetwood Macs første i fem år, og billetsalget til koncerten i København indledes på mandag. Der bliver tale om en overdækket koncert i såkaldt intime rammer og uden øvre tribuner


Fleetwood Mac indtager København

Fleetwood Mac har tidligere spillet i Danmark. Men de har aldrig været her med sangerinden Stevie Nicks (billedet) i front. Det bliver der dog lavet om på nu, for det legendariske poprock-band har planlagt et sjældent Danmarksbesøg. Fleetwood Mac er i øjeblikket på turné i USA, men til efteråret drager bandet på en Europatour under parolen 'Unleashed', som skydes i gang med et brag i Parken den 8. oktober.

Fleetwood Mac startede ud tilbage i 1967 og oplevede moderat succes indtil 1974. Men så kom der andre boller på suppen, da sangerinden Stevie Nicks og guitaristen Lindsey Buckingham kom til. Gruppen gik herefter nummer et på den amerikanske album-hitliste med det selvbetitlede album fra 1975, og slog sig efterfølgende helt op i verdenseliten med 'Rumours' fra 1977, som blandt indeholdt klassikere som 'Dreams', 'Go Your Own Way' og 'The Chain'.

I alt har Fleetwood Mac kastet hele 17 studiealbum ud af ærmet, seneste tilføjelse til diskografien kom i 2003, da de sendte 'Say You Will' på gaden.

Den kommende koncert bliver ikke foreviget for en fyldt Parken, da de øvre tribuner ikke vil blive taget i brug, ligesom der vil være siddepladser lige foran scenen. Og oktober-vejret taget i betragtning vil der selvfølgelig være tag på Parken.

Billetsalget starter på mandag den 15. juni på
