The trek kicked off on January 16 in St. Paul, Minnesota, and will stretch along until April 11 and the final date at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. During their journey, the five-piece will also visit Iowa, Illinois, Texas, Florida, California and more.
The act is currently promoting their latest greatest hits collection titled “Opus Collection.” Released in 2013, the effort spans across the band’s rich six-decade career.
The latest studio album from Fleetwood Mac, “Say You Will,” saw its released way back in 2003, marking the 17th release in the act’s studio opus. However, this doesn’t change the fact that the Mac team delivers a top-notch show to packed arenas on every single performance night. In a nutshell, the boys and gals still pack a strong punch.

UK/US classic rockers Fleetwood Mac began their stellar journey towards rock ‘n’ roll superstardom way back in 1967 as a modest blues act that likely never even dreamed of selling over 100 million albums around the globe and becoming one of the top-selling musical acts in history.
The band was founded by frontman Peter Green, as well as drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie, whose two last names forged the term Fleetwood Mac.
The band’s first phase saw the fellas releasing quality music, but reaching small commercial success, arguably due to the very nature of raw blues vibe. However, Mr. Green still managed to reach the top of the singles charts, thanks to tunes like “Albatross”, “Black Magic Woman”, “Oh Well”, and “Man of the World,” which were either performed by the Mac team or such notable artists as Carlos Santana.
However, Green left the band in 1970, marking the beginning of the so-called transitional period. Christine McVie was recruited on vocals and keyboard, but the major transition took four more years to finally occur. In 1974, guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and vocalist Stevie Nicks were recruited, and the chart-topping could finally commence.
After a few more years of struggle, “Rumours” was released in 1977 as the band’s album No. 11, propelling Fleetwood Mac to commercial heights many considered unreachable. Hits like “Go Your Own Way,” “Dreams,” and “Don’t Stop” helped the album sell a staggering figure of 45 million copies around the globe, turning it into one of eight top-selling albums in history.
Massive tours, massive crowds, and massive sales figures. The band had all the doors opening up for them, and wisely followed-up “Rumors” with “Tusk” in 1979, sticking to the same successful vibe and once again reaching No. 1 on the US Billboard chart. The effort went on to sell over 4 million copies worldwide.
Despite reaching their golden age, the band kept a slow pace in releasing new albums. Their next effort took about three years and was unveiled in 1982 titled “Mirage.” It sold millions, but only debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard chart.
A few years have passed and team Mac presented no new efforts, but when they delivered, they were once again back on top. In 1987, their 14th studio release, “Tango in the Night,” saw the light of day, featuring a super-hit single “Little Lies” among the others. It sold 15 million copies around the globe and established Fleetwood Mac as true arena titans.
In 1993, Buckingham left the band and was replaced by a guitarist duo Billy Burnette and Rick Vito. The group released “Behind the Mask” in 1990 to mild success, only for Nicks to leave the group in 1991.
In 1995, the group released “Time,” universally-acknowledged as the biggest flop of the band’s career. Soon after the release, the band called it quits for two years, only to resurface in 1997, with both Buckingham and Nicks back in the fold.
The band took its time with a new album once again. They heavily relied on touring and were still a mammoth live act. Fleetwood Mac released a new album, “Say You Will,” in 2003, once again acquiring critical acclaim. As it turned out, it was their last studio effort to date.
Whether or not will Fleetwood Mac ever release a new album remains a question, but the fact remains, they have established themselves as one of the ultimate greats. And it took them as much as 11 records to reach the superstar plateau, proving once and for all that patience and hard work always pay out.
