Fleetwood Mac's 2003 outing, promoted Concerts West, launched in early May, and has already become one of the more profitable tours of the past year. For the week ending Aug. 2, the group tallied four dates in the top-15 grossing concerts, according to Billboard Boxscore, and after only the first 13 performances went on sale in May, the jaunt became the 11th highest-grossing outing of the past year.
The tour features core members Stevie Nicks, Lindsay Buckingham, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood. Longtime member Christine McVie is not on board for the reunion.
"Say You Will" debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 in May, and has sold 667,000 copies in the U.S. to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
