Fleetwood Mac announce Australian tour dates

Legendary group will play a mix of arena and open-air winery shows

Fleetwood Mac have announced details of an Australian tour later this year (2013).

The legendary group will play a mix of arena and open-air winery shows in the winter. The tour kicks off at Sydney Entertainment Centre on November 10, before embarking on a further 6 dates, coming to an end at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on December 2.

“We are thrilled to return to Australia where we’ve always loved performing. Our fans there are phenomenal,” the group said in a joint statement.

Meanwhile, Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham has recently confirmed that they plan to continue releasing new material. The reformed band put out their first new material in 10 years with their ‘Extended Play’ EP and, in an interview with Billboard, Buckingham said it was “safe to say” that they would be releasing more new songs in the future.

Buckingham went on to add: “When I was growing up, EPs were all over the place. When I was growing up, albums were not really an art form; the single was the thing, and in some ways it has gotten back to that a little bit. The whole thing is just kind of wide open now, and it really is tantalising to be able to put together just a few things, three or four songs on an EP.”

Fleetwood Mac are currently on tour in the US and will play a string of UK dates later this year. The Australian dates are as follows:

Sydney Entertainment Centre (November 10)
Hope Estate Winery, Hunter Valley (November 16)
Adelaide Entertainment Centre (November 19)
Perth Arena (November 22)
Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne (November 26)
The Hill Winery, Geelong (November 30)
Brisbane Entertainment Centre (December 2)
