Return of the Mac. Return of the Mac. As devoted ‘90s lyrics enthusiasts, we had an inkling he might be back. But we never guessed that she would be back as well; that is, Christie McVie, the longstanding hold out on the much-buzzed about Fleetwood Mac reunion tour. Yeah, we were talking about a different “Mac.” And sorry, it’s not really a reunion tour unless all the original, living members are involved. (Shooting daggers in your direction, Beach Boys). Now rolling out the aptly named On With The Show tour, the Mac will be jamming together for the first time in 16 years, putting aside past and petty differences for the greater goal of bringing music to the people.
Indeed, there will be no torrid love triangles or month-long coke binges on this outing: Stevie, Mick, Lindsey, John and of course, Christie, are ready to serve up a cornucopia of classics. Dust off your Rumours lyric sheets and best gypsy-style veil for this shindig; you won’t want to be the only one who misses the landslide of magic sure to take place.
