Fleetwood Mac have added Australia to their global touring itinerary.
The veteran group today announced they will play a mix of Australian arenas and open-air winery shows, beginning Nov. 10 at the Sydney Entertainment Centre and running through to Dec. 2 at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre before heading east to New Zealand.
Australia’s Live Nation affiliate will promote the seven-date tour, tickets for which go on sale June 13, while pre-sales begin June 4.
The Australian tour announcement was accompanied by a cheery photo of the band’s current line-up of Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie. Nicks and Buckingham are intertwined in what looks unmistakeably like a “happy family” snap.
“We are thrilled to return to Australia where we’ve always loved performing. Our fans there are phenomenal,” the group commented in a joint statement.
Fleetwood Mac are currently on tour in North America, their first run of dates since 2009. Their tour of Europe commences Sept. 20 at the O2 Dublin, in the Republic of Ireland, and wraps Oct. 26 at Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome.
Fleetwood Mac recently released their first collection of new music in a decade, a set titled “Extended Play.” Prior to that, the group’s last studio album was “Say You Will,” released in 2003; that set bowed at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.
Buckingham recently told Billboard there’s more where Fleetwood Mac’s new “Extended Play” came from.
