Mick Fleetwood Blues Band Fall Tour Dates Announced

Fleetwood Mac drummer and co-founder Mick Fleetwood will hit the road this fall with his own band, The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, performing 13 shows across the western U.S. and Canada.

In addition to its namesake, The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band consists of singer/guitarist Rick Vito, who was also a member of Fleetwood Mac (1987-1991), bassist Lenny Castellanos and keyboardist Mark Johnstone who also provides background vocals.  Some years ago, this same line-up recorded Blue Again!, a live album that exemplifies the quartet’s power as a performing act, and underscored their adherence to the living, breathing genre that is the blues. Soon after its release, the album made it into the Top 5 on the Billboard Top Blues Albums Chart and went on to be nominated for a GRAMMY® in the Best Traditional Blues Album category.

“Over my career I’ve been called a pop star and a rock star, yet in my inner heart, I will always be part bluesman,” explains Fleetwood. “On my journey from blues to a life of rock ‘n’ roll, I’ve always remembered where I started.”

Aside from originals, The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band repertoire concentrates on material drawn from the formative years of Fleetwood Mac. 1967-1969 Peter Green era songs are covered, such as “Oh Well,” “Rattlesnake Shake,” “Love That Burns” and “Black Magic Woman,” later made famous by Santana, as well and blues classics like “Shake Your Money Maker” and “When the Levee Breaks” are also key components of The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band’s set list.

Lindsey Buckingham to Guest Star on "Roadies" - July 10th @showtime

‘Roadies’: Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham steals the show
By Chris E. Hayner

While Showtime's "Roadies" may not feature much in the way of music from the band it's about -- the Staton House Band -- that doesn't mean the show isn't filled with incredible music. In the first two episodes, The Head and the Heart and Reignwolf got a chance to shine in the spotlight.

That trend continues with the third episode of the series, "The Bryce Newman Letter," with special guest Lindsey Buckingham providing an incredible musical moment. Buckingham, vocalist and guitarist for Fleetwood Mac, performs an acoustic version of one of the band's biggest hits, "Bleed to Love Her."

In the Zap2it exclusive sneak peek above, it's clear to the characters on the show just how special it is to be treated to a private concert by the legend and it's something that is extended to everyone watching at home. Appreciate these moments while you can, this isn't the sort of thing you get from most music-based TV shows.

You can see Buckingham's full performance on the next episode of "Roadies" which airs Sunday, July 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.

Lindsey Buckingham to Guest Star on "Roadies" - July 10th @showtime

Look for Lindsey in the July 10th episode of "Roadies", the new Showtime series from Cameron Crowe.

Not sure why the date change... but it appears the reissue of Mirage has been pushed back to September.

Artist Name: Fleetwood Mac
Release Date: Fri, 09/23/2016 - US |  Thur, 09/29/16 - UK


3CD/5.1 Surround Mix/LP Set Features Newly Remastered
Sound, Rare And Unreleased Recordings, And More

2-CD Expanded Edition Also Available

Both Versions Set For Release On September 23 From Warner Bros. Records

LOS ANGELES – Fleetwood Mac’s streak of five consecutive multi-platinum albums began in the Seventies and continued in 1982 with Mirage, the follow-up to the band’s 1979 double-album, Tusk. During the summer of 1982, Mirage topped the album chart and added to the band’s already impressive canon of hits with “Hold Me,” “Love In Store” and “Gypsy.”

Following last year’s deluxe edition of Tusk, Fleetwood Mac continues chronologically with the deluxe edition of MIRAGE. Available on July 29, this new edition expands on the original album with newly remastered sound, a selection of rare and unreleased recordings, as well as the stories and pictures behind the album. Three formats available:

- Deluxe: Three CDs, DVD and LP. Original album remastered, plus b-sides and rarities; the original album on LP; live performances; and a 5.1 mix on DVD. $99.98.
- Expanded: Two CDs. Original album remastered, plus a disc of b-sides and rarities. $19.98.
- Remastered: Original album remastered. $11.98.
Digital version will also be available.

In 1982 Fleetwood Mac topped the U.S. Album Chart for five weeks with MIRAGE. Along with instantly recognizable smash hits like “Hold Me” and “Gypsy,” MIRAGE also features great album tracks like “Oh Diane,” a Top Ten hit in the UK, and “Straight Back,” a Top 40 hit on the Billboard Rock Chart.

The new deluxe and expanded editions of MIRAGE both include a second disc that has 19 tracks dedicated entirely to outtakes and rarities. Among the unreleased gems are early versions of several album tracks – “Empire State” and “Book Of Love” – along with outtakes for songs that didn’t make it to the album: “If You Were My Love” and “Smile At You.” There is also an unreleased cover of the Fats Domino classic “Blue Monday,” as well as the rare, extended mix for “Gypsy” that was used in the music video.

Exclusive to the deluxe edition of MIRAGE is a third disc that has more than a dozen live performances recorded in Los Angeles during Fleetwood Mac’s 1982 U.S. tour. Along with early hits – “You Make Loving Fun” and “The Chain” – the collection includes performances of MIRAGE standouts like “Love In Store,” “Eyes Of The World” and “Gypsy.”

The DVD-Audio disc contains both the 5.1 Surround and 24/96 Stereo Audio mixes of the original album. The set also includes a vinyl copy of MIRAGE.

On June 30th, Morrison Hotel Gallery is honored to be joining forces with this cultural icon for a gallery opening at Fleetwood’s General Store in Maui, Hawaii located at 744 Front Street, Lahaina, Hawaii. Fleetwood’s is a boutique that incorporates the culture and style of the Hawaiian Islands with a world traveler’s flair that only Mick Fleetwood can provide.

“Morrison Hotel Gallery is the real deal in fine art music photography,” says Fleetwood. “It’s a world I have lived and breathed for my whole life, and thus serves as a constant reminder of how lucky I am to be part of that historical musical journey!!”

The parties will toast their partnership with an exhibit from award-winning and culture-defining photographer—and MHG co-founder—Henry Diltz, whose catalog includes albums shots for the Doors, Crosby Stills and Nash, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and hundreds of others.

“Mick Fleetwood represents the artistic and authentic history of music as a true purveyor of taste and culture,” says MHG co-founder Peter Blachley. “Morrison Hotel Gallery has also been striving for many years to present those same qualities. We are delighted to be part of Fleetwood’s General Store in Maui. It’s going to be a wonderful pairing of brands.”

New Empire of the Sun Album to feature Lindsey Buckingham

Luke Steele has written a song with Fleetwood Mac legend Lindsey Buckingham for the next Empire of the Sun album.

The yet-to-be-named album, pencilled in for October, features a very special guest — Fleetwood Mac legend Lindsey Buckingham.

Steele explains that when he and Jodi have “late night music parties” at their Santa Monica or Coromandel Peninsula homes to a soundtrack of classic pop and rock, he often emails his manager asking for a hook-up with one of his heroes.

“Ninety-nine per cent of the time they never get back,” he laughs. “I’ve always wanted to work with my favourite guitarist Lindsey Buckingham so I reached out.

“He got back and said ‘Fleetwood Mac are off the road, I’m in LA, I’d love to come down’.”

Buckingham joined Empire of the Sun in their Downtown LA Compound where he played guitar and sung harmonies on a track called To Her Door, which the 66-year-old rock god also co-wrote.

“It’s such a classic song,” Steele gushes. “It’s just been a dream come true.”
