Originally conceived as a hard-edged blues combo, Fleetwood Mac later evolved into one of the biggest mainstream pop-rock acts of the 70s, surviving several departures, legal problems and relationship breakdowns along the way. Formed in 1967 by the core members of Peter Green and Mick Fleetwood, the first no-frills incarnation of the band released their self-titled debut and Fleetwood Mac tickets for a headline tour a year later before scoring their breakthrough hit with guitar-based instrumental “Albatross” in 1969. Following a label change and a sudden exit from a mentally unstable Green, the group spent the early 70s constantly recruiting and then firing various musicians - not to mention filing and winning a lawsuit against a group of impostors - before eventually settling on the iconic line-up of Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, John and Christine McVie and Fleetwood. 1975 saw them top the US charts for the first time with their second eponymous effort and release Fleetwood Mac tickets for a tour of the same name, but it was 1977’s Rumours that cemented their place in rock history. Recorded amidst various internal tensions, the album spawned several major hits including number one “Dreams,” won Album Of The Year at the Grammy Awards and went on to shift over 40 million copies. The band then released Fleetwood Mac tickets for an extensive 18-month world tour in-between 1979’s commercial disappointment Tusk and 1982’s return-to-form Mirage, but spent the next five years concentrating on their respective solo careers. In 1987, they reunited for a string of Top 10 hits (“Big Love,” “Little Lies,” “Everywhere”) and parent album, Tango In The Night, and after replacing Buckingham with guitarists Billy Burnette and Rick Vito, released 1990’s Behind The Mask and Fleetwood Mac tickets for a tour which included two sold-out dates at Wembley Stadium. Following Nicks’ departure in 1991, the band’s profile sank to an all-time-low, resulting in 1995’s Time missing the US Top 200 altogether. But after reforming in 1997, the classic line-up topped the charts with live album, The Dance, were awarded the Outstanding Contribution to Music at the BRIT Awards and alongside three other former members, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. 2003’s Say You Will continued to restore their reputation as did a 2009 hit-packed Unleashed tour which grossed over $84 million in Fleetwood Mac tickets sales. While in 2013, the band announced an 81-date world tour in support of their Extended Play E.P.
