Fleetwood Mac tour includes Louisville stop on Thursday

By BRADEN LAMMERS

LOUISVILLE — One of the iconic bands of the 1970s and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees is bringing their show to the KFC Yum! Center.

After a three-year break, Fleetwood Mac has begun a major 34-city U.S. Tour which includes a stop in Louisville at 8 p.m. Thursday, April 11.

The multi Grammy-winning tour also coincides with the 35th anniversary of the release of their classic 1977 “Rumours” album. The record is one of the most successful albums in recorded history with sales exceeding 40 million copies, it sat at the top of the pop charts for more than 31 weeks and had four top ten singles, according to the release.fleetwood mac

The recording of the album was notoriously marked by interpersonal turmoil between the band’s members and excess. At the time the album was made keyboardist and singer Christine McVie and bassist John McVie had recently divorced, and guitarist and singer Lindsey Buckingham and vocalist Stevie Nicks were in the midst of a tumultuous relationship. Drummer Mick Fleetwood faced his own personal issues, after he discovered the infidelity of his wife with his best friend.

Many of the albums songs reflected the personal trauma each of the band members was going through, writing tracks about one another. Despite the chaos that encompassed the album’s recording, it became Fleetwood Mac’s seminal record.

Among the singles released on that album were “Go Your Own Way,” “Don’t Stop,” “Dreams” and “You Make Loving Fun.”

Marking the album’s anniversary, and to go along with the tour, Fleetwood Mac has released a new deluxe version of “Rumours” with previously unreleased studio and live tracks.

The current Fleetwood Mac lineup appearing on the tour includes Fleetwood, John McVie, Buckingham and Nicks.

Tickets for the Louisville show are still available at LiveNation.com, Ticketmaster.com, the KFC Yum! Center box office all Ticketmaster outlets, or you can charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000. Ticket prices are $149.50, $79.50 and $49.50, plus fees.
