Having just released their first new recorded material in a decade, the four-track Extended Play EP, the band decided to get back on the road.
Both the EP and touring line-up consist of founding members Mick Fleetwood and John McVie with longtime cohorts Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. Christine McVie, who joined the band in 1970, opted not to take up an invitation to be a part of the reunion.
The tour has received glowing reviews (the EP has also been greeted with enthusiasm) as the two-hour show includes all the expected hits - with their iconic 1977 Rumours album well-represented. Mac are also including folky new track Sad Angel, from the EP, in their set. The band have also been playing their anthemic 1979 psychedelic-marching band hit Tusk.
The tour includes five arena shows around the country plus two winery concerts - A Day On The Green in Geelong and the Hope Estate in Hunter Valley.
Tickets go on sale Thursday 13 June.
Veterans lead this week's releases with new albums from Tim Rogers & The Bamboos (Album Of The Week) and Daniel Johns plus albums from Ella Thompson, The Vaccines and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
