Default Unreleased Tracks from Rumours?

WTF are they re-releasing RUMORS again?!?! Where are the delux packages for Mirage and Tango?!?!

And honestly, what songs are left from the Rumours sessions anyway?

On the other hand, I'm psyched for the new tour! WOOHOO!!

Default What? Fleetwood Mac Is Convoluted?!?

Who knew?

From Billboard:

"Lindsey Buckingham on the upcoming Fleetwood Mac tour, which kicks off Mar. 1 in Pittsburgh: "If I knew what to expect, I would tell you. It's been a little convoluted emotionally. We have some work to do." Only 16 dates have been announced so far, but Buckingham said there would be about 40 in the U.S. As to who might put out a Fleetwood Mac album after the tour, Buckingham said nothing was set in stone, but that "we have a strong relationship with Warner Bros."

Yeah, the tour and the extra footage we supposedly haven't seen. That's something to be happy about.

Yayyyyyyyyyy!!!! Can't wait. I bet Stevie does Sisters. : - ) It will be interesting to see what they consider to be hits besides the obvious. I mean can they do an entire 2 hour show with "hits" only? (excluding Chris songs)

This is awseome news. I'm glad the tour is starting in March. The fact that its starting sooner means it will end sooner and in theory means they'll start working on a new album sooner.

I will without question be at the Rochester show, but am also considering maybe trying to be at opening night for the first time in my life and finding a way to be in Pittsburgh.

It's weird my excitment level for this tour has increased a 100 percent with the announcment of the dates.

As a public service, I looked into if there might be a show after Chicago and before Detroit seeing as theres 2 days in betwenn those shows and heres what I dug up:

Milwakuee: bradley center is occupied on the 6th and 7th of March
Indianapolis: same thing for Conseco Fieldhouse
possibilities are Moline, or maybe Green Bay or Madison. just thought I'd let you all know.

My guess is that the "unseen" footage will be the backstage Japan footage that mostly already circulating.....

Re-releasing something we've bought at least three times over is so over doing it. I am just not a happy camper at the moment as this was not a good time for these tickets to go on sale....right before Christmas, come on, the unfairness of it all. I might not be doing any shows this time around
It just breaks my heart
Thank you for letting me vent

I agree with you so much on this one
I used to be the die hard that would pay through the nose to see them (at any cost).....life just isn't like that anymore

Unless they radically change their set list (and their 10 support players) and surprise us with new songs, cover songs and album tracks never performed before, naming the tour UNLEASHED is so dubious and senseless. Who the hell thought that was the best name?? I suspect not any band member, but one of their great (not-so) marketing/PR people.

FLEETWOOD MAC The Redundant Tour...because we are too lazy to release anything truely new and it's so much easier to make money by just re-unleashing the same thing we've been living off for 30 thirty years.

Well, first I was excited and went into Tour Overdrive mode,plotting my traveling arrangements.
But, the timing does suck. First, I've been ultra-careful this year with Christmas, planning everything so I would have enough money in a MONTH or so to do FM without too much of a burden on the credit cards. That plan flew out the window.
Then, touring in the Northeast during the tail end of the winter-beginning of the spring means bad weather is still a huge possibility. So, I hardly want to buy tickets to somewhere four hours away and then hit a blizzard in one city or another.
And, of course, the whole Rumours thing puts me to sleep. As will the promotion of it, I'm sure. Yada, yada...we can ALL tell these stories in our sleep by now.
So, this morning, I'm definitely having mixed feelings about it. I'm in NY, and will do the two NY dates but doubt I'll do Boston or Washington, DC, which I probably would have done in a second in the LATE spring or summer.
Will it sell for the casual, nostalgic-hungry fan? Probably more, sad to say, than new stuff would.

I still don't understand why they don't release a new album first. A huge box set with classics, rarities & unseen footage would also be nice.

But no

I doubt it will be 'rare footage' that noone has not been able to obtain via trades/eBay/torrents/etc.

In the very recent past, I've seen major artists obtain 'rare footage' from hardcore fans to release upon a DVD - and even then the footage is NOT cleaned up and processed for final release...Looks just like a bad VHS to DVD transfer, 'Warts and all'.


So on that front, I am NOT getting my hopes up at all, I will await to after the re-re-re-re-re-release of "Rumours" to hear reviews of this footage before I think about a purchase.

Say what you want about the fan club, but at least they offered premium tickets (including front row center- I still can't believe that they did that) to fans for what amounted to a ~$50 surcharge.
If I recall, they only offered 2 pairs in the front row per show. Soooo many people go screwed by the fanclub - I know everyone can't get front row, but to pay extra for that package & end up with 8th or 9th row, then find TM seats in the 2nd or 3rd row later? F that.

I still think it's pretty damn outrageous. Am I supposed to be thankful that the prices didn't go up too much from 5 years ago? Well I'm not.

Of course they would start in Pittsburgh, since I've moved from there. I'll probably see them at MSG and maybe Jersey.....since I do live in NYC now. woot.
You whore! Since when?!

Where were they $200 for SYW? Top price I recall was $150 for the A.C. show - were NYC or LA higher?

Don't apologize. You're not alone in thinking that way. They ****ed up by dragging the SYW tour on waaaaaaayyyy too long & not being able to pull together an anniversary tour in '07 because it would have been too soon. HUGE opportunity that was missed, IMO.

If she does SOTM, I will go to a show for sure. If not, I will have to think about it. Seriously. This from the girl that made it to 5 shows for SYW, and 4 Stevie shows in '05 including Vegas. I just can't do it anymore - I don't have the desire, or the time, or the money. They need to make it worth my while, and I've been disappointed too many times not to be gunshy this time around.
