Fleetwood Mac Are Coming to Phoenix

Fleetwood Mac have announced a 52-date North American tour. Kicking off this October, the legendary rock band will make their way through North America and stop in Phoenix.

The announcement comes on the heels of longtime on-again, off-again member Lindsay Buckingham's firing from the group, whose interpersonal dramatics have fueled — and at times rivaled — their music. His departure reportedly stemmed from a disagreement over this upcoming tour.

Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Neil Finn of Crowded House will replace Buckingham and join Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Stevie Nicks, and Christine McVie on the upcoming dates. That will include a concert at Talking Stick Resort Arena on Wednesday, November 28.
“Fleetwood Mac has always been about an amazing collection of songs that are performed with a unique blend of talents," Fleetwood says in the tour announcement. "We jammed with Mike and Neil and the chemistry really worked and let the band realize that this is the right combination to go forward with in Fleetwood Mac style. We know we have something new, yet it’s got the unmistakable Mac sound."

Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. local time on Friday, May 4. Prices will range from $64.75 to $224.75 via Ticketmaster.

American Express cardholders will have early access to tickets, including limited VIP tickets, in select markets from 10 a.m. on Monday, April 30, through 10 p.m. on Thursday, May 3.
