Another Fleetwood Mac Reunion? Are You Interested? [POLL]
When Fleetwood Mac reunited in 1997, it became a huge moment for MTV and VH1 when the band’s live performance was broadcasted, setting up their CD that sold around 10 Million worldwide. Could lightning strike twice for this veteran outfit, and would you be interested if they did?
On CBS This Morning, Stevie Nicks was a guest on this Wednesday morning and she announced that the Mac will be back and reunited in 2013. The last time the main 5 of the group were seen out together was back in 1998. This reunion is big news if the Fleetwood 5 – Nicks, Lindsay Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie and John McVie – are all on board. Christine has been the one holdout since 1998 – the remaining 4 have toured together but not since 2009.
Unlike 1997, no new CD is slated to be released. Fleetwood Mac has not had a CD release of new music since 2003.
The Dance back in ’97 was a unique event that saw MTV score big-time ratings for the concert, followed by VH1’s Behind The Music special that helped further spread the reunion of the band who had 18 Top-20 hits between 1975 and 1988 with their talented group of 5. The reunion in ’97 produced a rock hit with their new version of “The Dance” (Better than their original recording), and 2 major radio hits with “Silver Spring” and “Landslide”.
What could make this 2013 tour significant is if Christine McVie is on board, and this marks potentially the last tour of the band’s illustrious career. Nicks says “everyone is on board”. If this is true, this show could be a hot ticket in Atlantic City next year.
