Fleetwood Mac add extra Manchester date to 2015 UK tour

Band will now play Manchester Arena on July 1

Fleetwood Mac have added an extra night in Manchester to their 2015 UK and Irish tour.

Tickets for the original run of shows went on sale yesterday morning (November 14), with two more dates scheduled in London for June 22 and 24. Today it has been confirmed that the band will also play a second gig at Manchester Arena on July 1. This is in addition to the previously scheduled June 12 show, which sold out immediately upon going on sale.

The shows will feature Christine McVie, who recently rejoined the group and performing with her old bandmates for the first time since 1997.

The band’s Mick Fleetwood recently denied that Fleetwood Mac will be appearing at Glastonbury in 2015.

Despite Fleetwood’s statement, the band have remained one of the favourites to top the bill at the event next year, though Michael Eavis has stated in recent weeks that the chances of the band headlining were looking unlikely.

“One of the things that I’d like to clear up is that we’re not playing Glastonbury,” Fleetwood told Radio 2. “A lot of folks think that we are, so loud and clear: We love Glastonbury and all the surrounding history of such a lovely festival but we’re not playing it.”

Fleetwood added: “No bad faith for Glastonbury because I just don’t want people thinking it’s us.” He was then asked if this meant the band will never play Worthy Farm to which the drummer replied: “Never say never.”
