Fleetwood Mac coming to the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa




Considering Fleetwood Mac's tumultuous history, it's a miracle they still occasionally tour. It was certainly surprising to see them perform at the then-St. Pete Times Forum in 2009.

So consider Tampa doubly lucky, because it looks like we're getting another Fleetwood Mac concert in 2013.

Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham told Rolling Stone about their plans for a North American tour next year, and they apparently include a date at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on June 7. Nothing has been announced by the venue, so we have no details on tickets, but we'll keep you posted.

As Buckingham told Rolling Stone, expect this to be mostly a greatest-hits show:

We always have to play Dreams, Rhiannon, Don't Stop, Tusk, Big Love, Landslide and all our most famous songs. When you've gone through all your must-do's, that's 75% of your potential setlist. I think with the other 25%, there are areas of our catalog that are more under-explored. Maybe we'll play more songs from Tusk. I'd also like to see an extended middle portion of the show that's just me and Stevie. This is just me talking from the top of my head. For now, I have no particular vision of what this tour is going to be.

Unfortunately, we can assume it won't include Christine McVie, who hasn't toured with the band since 1998. Bummer, because we missed hearing Everywhere the last time around.
