Next year is going to be the year of Fleetwood Mac.
Just ask Stevie Nicks: "It's the prefect time to go back out," she told Rolling Stone, confirming rumors that had been swirling for months. Fleetwood Mac announced Tuesday the band would be hitting the road for a 2013 world tour kicking off April 4.
Band member Lindsay Buckingham confirms the shows will most be big greatest hits marathons.
"We always have to play 'Dreams,' 'Rhiannon,' 'Don't Stop,' 'Tusk,' 'Big Love,' 'Landslide' and all our most famous songs," he told Rolling Stone. "When you've gone through all your must-do's, that's 75% of your potential setlist. I think with the other 25%, there are areas of our catalog that are more under-explored. Maybe we'll play more songs from Tusk. I'd also like to see an extended middle portion of the show that's just me and Stevie. This is just me talking from the top of my head. For now, I have no particular vision of what this tour is going to be."
So far, the band has only released tour dates for North America, but Nicks said they plan to do festivals in Europe over the summer, and then perhaps head to Australia.
