Mick Fleetwood touring with his blues band
 
I wasn't sure where to post this since Mick doesn't have his own space here, but I just got an email from the Uptown Theater in Napa (SF Bay Area). I"m not sure what that means in terms of a new album or tour, but I thought people would want to know. :)

Mick Fleetwood Blues Band Announces Fall Tour Dates

Read More: Mick Fleetwood Blues Band Announces Fall Tour Dates | http://ultimateclassicrock.com/mick-...ckback=tsmclip

Fleetwood Mac is (mostly) staying off the stage in 2016, but Mick Fleetwood isn’t twiddling his thumbs during the band’s time off.

This fall, Fleetwood will return to the road with his Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, which also includes bassist Lenny Castellanos, keyboardist Mark Johnstone and guitarist/vocalist Rick Vito — the latter of whom served the same function in Fleetwood Mac from 1987-91. As noted in the press release announcing the new dates, this is the same lineup Fleetwood utilized for his 2008 live LP, Blue Again!

“Over my career I’ve been called a pop star and a rock star, yet in my inner heart, I will always be part bluesman. On my journey from blues to a life of rock ‘n’ roll, I’ve always remembered where I started,” explained Fleetwood. Praising his band’s current lineup, he added, “A lot of guys can play the licks, but Rick has the tone and that’s so important in real blues. … Any bassist who plays with me has big shoes to fill.”

Prior to embarking on his fall tour with the Blues Band, Fleetwood will be on hand for Fleetwood Mac’s sole 2016 date: a set from center field at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles. Scheduled for July 28, the show is the main event at the team’s second annual Blue Diamond Gala.

Fleetwood promises a set list divided between originals, covers and cuts from Fleetwood Mac’s early years. Check out the complete list of currently scheduled dates below and visit Fleetwood’s website for detailed ticketing information.

Blues news you can use: Mick Fleetwood Blues Band coming to Spokane
Posted By Dan Nailen on Mon, Jul 11, 2016 at 1:05 PM, Bloglander


Before Fleetwood Mac became a hit machine after Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham joined the band, the group was better known for its late-60s era of blues music.

Between the arena-sized tours that brought Fleetwood Mac to Spokane two years ago, drummer and band founder Mick Fleetwood is getting back to his roots with the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, which is stopping in Spokane on Wednesday, Sept. 28, for a show at the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox.

Tickets range from $43 to $78, and are available via presale right now by going to the TicketsWest site for the show and entering "BLUES" in the promo code box. Otherwise, tickets go on sale to the public Friday at 10 am at all the usual TicketsWest outlets. There are also VIP tickets available that include some hang time with Fleetwood and primo seats in the first few rows.

Fronting the band is lead guitarist and singer Rick Vito, who stepped into the Fleetwood Mac lineup from 1987 to 1991 after Buckingham had left. He's also toured and played with the likes of Bob Seger, Bonnie Raitt, John Fogerty and Albert Collins, among others.

The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band was nominated for a Grammy back in 2010 for their live Blue Again release, and their live shows are a mix of original tunes, covers of blues classics and reworked versions of songs from all eras of Fleetwood Mac.

Los Angeles Daily News, By Steve Smith POSTED: 08/12/16,

http://www.dailynews.com/arts-and-en...tt-looks-ahead

Fleetwood Mac is on hiatus this year, except for one private party it played last month for the owners of the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium, and the band has been cooling its heels. So, drummer Mick Fleetwood has decided to hit the road with his Mick Fleetwood Blues Band.

The band includes singer-guitarist Rick Vito, who was a member of Fleetwood Mac from 1987-1991, years after singer Stevie Nicks and singer-guitarist Lindsay Buckingham quit the group (and before they returned to the fold in 1997 (save for a one-off reunion at Bill Clinton’s first Inaugural Ball, where they played his campaign theme, their “Don’t Stop”).

Fleetwood’s 13-show tour runs Sept. 13 in Aspen, Colorado, through an Oct. 2 gig in Victoria, British Columbia. The SoCal shows are Sept. 20 at the 1,200-seat John Anson Ford Amphitheatre, cross the freeway from the Hollywood Bowl, and Sept. 21 at the 600-capacity Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, just north of the Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds.

The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band booked for the Uptown

Mick Fleetwood, the co-founder of Fleetwood Mac, brings his new band, The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, to the Uptown Theatre in Napa on Sunday, Sept. 25.

In addition to playing its own music, the band pays tribute to the original Fleetwood Mac, the all-male blues band started in 1967. It harkens back to the Mac’s early days, when the group drew heavily on American blues music and produced hits such as “Rattlesnake Shake,” “Albatross,” “Oh Well” and “Black Magic Woman” (which was later covered by Santana).

The band is led by Mick Fleetwood, providing power-house percussion and persona. At the front of the group is Rick Vito, veteran Bluesman and former Fleetwood Mac vocalist and lead guitarist. Vito adds his personal touch while staying true to the styling of early Fleetwood Mac front man Peter Green.

“A lot of guys can play the licks but Rick has the tone and that’s so important in real blues,” Mick Fleetwood said.

With Fleetwood anchoring the band on percussion, the “other half” of the rhythm section is Lenny Castellanos on bass. Fleetwood said, “I’ve played with John McVie for 40 years, (so) any bassist who plays with me has big shoes to fill.”

The group’s new album, “Blue Again,” was recorded live at the Sheldon Concert Hall in St. Louis, Missouri in February of 2008.

“Over my career I’ve been called a pop star and a rock star, yet in my inner heart, I will always be part bluesman,” Fleetwood said. “On my journey from blues to a life of rock ‘n’ roll, I’ve always remembered where I started.”

The show begins at 8 p.m. Opening the night at Uptown Theatre is local bluesman Jeffrey Halford.

Tickets for the Uptown show are $65, $75 and $105 and can be purchased at www.uptowntheatrenapa.com or by calling the theater box office at 1350 Third St., Napa. For more information, call 707-259-0123.
