The Mac is Back: Fleetwood Mac Unleash New Tour
(PR) Fleetwood Mac will be embarking on their first concert tour in five years on March 1st at Pittsburgh's Mellon Arena and will include all the Macs' many greatest hits from over the course of one of rock's most enduring and influential bands of our time.
"We love our band and think the title of the tour "UNLEASHED" perfectly describes how we all feel when we get on stage together - especially in 2009. We're so happy to get back out on the road, perform everyone's favorite songs and see our fans," said the band in a joint statement.
