Fleetwood Mac will perform new original material along with their huge back catalogue of hits on their upcoming world tour.
According to a brand new interview posted today at Billboard.com, the multi-Grammy Award winning rockers will include three newly recorded tracks on their Fleetwood Mac Live 2013 tour setlist, which hits Canada and the U.S. this spring.
New songs include: “Sad Angela,” “Miss Fantasy” and a third song written years, but left off of the 1973 for Mac alumni Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nick’s 1973 solo collaboration “Buckingham-Nicks,” which will receive digital release soon.
Despite Buckingham, as well as Mac namesake/co-founders Mick Fleetwood and John McVie pushing for more new product from the band, fans will have to hold their breath for a new studio album, apparently mainly due to Nicks’ desire to “wait and see” if there is a market.
Nicks, voicing wariness following the strenuous two-year promotion of her most recent solo album, 2010’s “In Your Dreams,” says, "[Let's] see if the world does want more music from us. If we get that back, if we get that feeling, that they do want another 10 songs, we can reassess."
Fans can check out a video of the complete interview at Billboard.com.
Touring behind the recently released 35th anniversary deluxe reissue of their monster-selling 1977 studio album "Rumours," the “Go Your Own Way” hitmakers will hit the road for a 34-city tour of North American, beginning April 4 in Columbus, Ohio at Nationwide Area and winding up June 12 in Detroit, Michigan at Joe Louis Arena.
The Canadian leg begins April 16 at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre and wraps up May 19 in Vancouver, BC at Rogers Arena.
