Fleetwood Mac to play Phoenix, Stevie Nicks returns home

Phoenix native and living rock legend, Stevie Nicks will return to her hometown, with a few old friends. Nicks, along with her original bandmates in Fleetwood Mac will reunite for a 33 city tour entitled "On With The Show", including a performance at the United Airways Arena in Phoenix on Dec. 10.

Born in Phoenix in 1948, Nicks lived there with her family before moving throughout the southwest, and settling in California, where she attended Arcadia High School, and Menlo Atherton High School, where she eventually met future bandmate and partner Lindsey Buckingham.

Originally formed in London in 1967, Fleetwood Mac went through many years of personnel changes before solidifying themselves in 1975, both within the band, and also on the American music charts. Nicks joined the band that year along with Buckingham, and together with Mic Fleetwood, John McVie, and Christine McVie, created one of the band's most successful albums, "Rumours," which produced four U.S. top 10 hits, and claimed the top spot on the U.S. album chart for 31 weeks, winning the Grammy for Album of the Year in 1977.

This is the first tour with the original members since 1997. Christine McVie was the last holdout, but announced in March she would return to the band for the reunion. McVie left the band in 1998, giving no hope of a return to fans, and even her bandmates, with Nicks stating to Rolling Stone magazine during a 2012 interview that “there is more of chance of an asteroid hitting the Earth, than Christine McVie returning to Fleetwood Mac.”

Stock up on bottled water, for the end is apparently near, for "On With The Show," kicks off on Sept. 30 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn.
