Default Mac for glastonbury 2014? More New songs online 2013

According to the Irish Mirrror :

Christine McVie to make a return.. and it’s no rumour
19 Sep 2013 22:00

Fleetwood Mac fans set for treat as former key band member gets ready to make Dublin appearance
Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll! If ever there was a band that followed that mantra to the letter it was Fleetwood Mac.

The long-lasting British- American group may be remembered for such hits as The Chain, Little Lies and Go Your Own Way, but in terms of booze and drug-bingeing, partnerswapping and back-stabbing drama, it makes the Rolling Stones look like a church choir.

This year marks 35 years since the release of the band’s masterpiece ‘Rumours’ that would go on to become one of the most successful records in history selling over 40 million worldwide.

The rock icons are currently on a critically acclaimed world tour that reaches Dublin for two sold-out shows on Friday and Saturday night.

The band have been rehearsing in the capital and spotted in the five-star Four Seasons hotel on Wednesday night.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, frontwoman Stevie Nicks has revealed that former key member Christine McVie, who left the band over 14 years ago,

has been in Dublin rehearsing with the band.

“She’s coming to do two nights (in London) and probably do ‘Don’t Stop’. I’m not sure, but she’s coming to Dublin to rehearse whatever song she’s going to do. We never wanted her to leave, so for us it’s amazing that she is going to come,” Nicks said.
McVie won’t accompany the tour beyond London, apparently down to her fear of flying.

British drummer Mick Fleetwood, the only original member in the present line up, revealed earlier this year that there is a new Fleetwood Mac album in the pipeline and that new songs will be released online in the coming months.

Fleetwood Mac’s 46-year dark history is the stuff of legend but t begins long before the destruction of love affairs that is chronicled in painful detail on Rumours.

Set lists from the US leg of the tour show the band playing the lion’s share of Rumours with smatterings from Tusk, Fleetwood Mac and only one, Big Love, from their 1987 album Tango in the Night.

Fans disappointed that they didn’t snap up a ticket to see the Mac in Dublin may get a second chance to see them live as they have said they would like to be included on the Glastonbury 2014 bill.

Speaking to music site Gigwise, Fleetwood explained that although last year’s rumoured festival slots came to nothing due to touring commitments, next year could be a different matter.

“Hopefully Glastonbury will ask us again,” he said, “although they’ve probably got fed up of asking us!”

Glastonbury festival 2014: ticket sale details announced

Regular tickets will go on sale from 6 October, with coach package deals available three days earlier


This year's festival mud may still be clinging to some of your belongings, but it's already time to start thinking about Glastonbury 2014. Tickets for next year's festival, which will take place on 25-29 June, will go on sale on Sunday 6 October at 9am, costing £210 plus a £5 booking fee – although a £50 deposit is all that's needed to secure a ticket before paying the bill in April.

There's good news for those who want to travel by coach: this year, coach packages will be available three days before the main ticket sale, from 6pm on Thursday 3 October. The aim is to "reward green travellers", according to a festival spokesperson.

Although no acts have been announced yet, organiser Michael Eavis has said the three headline acts are already lined up. Rumours of potential headliners include David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, Daft Punk, Foo Fighters, Elbow, Kanye West, Oasis and Adele.

The past summer's festival saw Arctic Monkeys, Rolling Stones and Mumford & Sons headline, with Eavis declaring the lineup "hard to beat".

Festivalgoers will have to register on the Glastonbury website before buying tickets, with a maximum purchase limit of six each per transaction, both for standard and coach-plus-ticket packages. Those interested in buying Glastonbury tickets should head online to glastonbury.seetickets.com, or call 0844 412 4635 from a UK phone (for international callers +44 1159 934 183). For more information, visit the Glastonbury 2014 ticket information page here. The Guardian is the official media partner of Glastonbury festival.

This is a pipedream, but if I had my way, things would go like this. Assuming they headline Glastonbury

1. Christine announces that she rejoins the band and would record a new album with them.
2. The four-piece finishes the tour, and Christine joins them for Vegas.
3. They then work on a new album between January and May (see, this is a pipe dream )
4. They release said album and use the Glastonbury gig as their major vehicle.
5. Album sells like hotcakes, then they do a limited engagement of select cities and release a live DVD.

Kaching, kaching, kaching!

Default Paddy Power suspends betting

Paddy Power suspends Fleetwood Mac Glastonbury betting
September 24, 2013 • Festivals & Events, Glastonbury, News

UK online bookmakers Paddy Power have confirmed they have stopped taking bets on rock band Fleetwood Mac to headline next year’s Glastonbury Festival.


Rumours have been rife, even before this year’s event, of the group’s reformation taking them to the infamous Pyramid Stage. With organiser Michael Eavis recently announcing that next year’s headliners have already been confirmed, fans went into overdrive trying to find out who.

More as we hear it….

http://stagedoor.fm/paddy-power-susp...onbury-betting
______________________________________________


The above is interesting as it implies that FM are a done deal to perform, yet we have possible details (other threads) suggesting they've decline to perform. Or, Paddy P are playing games in the midst of fm publicity. Eager to hear either way...

Betting suspended on Fleetwood Mac playing Glastonbury as tickets sell out

Sunday 6 Oct 2013 1:58 pm Metro.co.uk

http://metro.co.uk/2013/10/06/bettin...l-out-4135925/

Bookies have suspended betting on Fleetwood Mac being named Glastonbury 2014′s headline act in the wake of the festival’s record ticket sales.

According to Ladbrokes the veteran rockers are now the hot favourites to be the main attraction on the Pyramid Stage next year, with odds of just 1-4 on them topping the bill.

And the odds put them way ahead of second favourites Daft Punk, who are currently 6-4 to make an appearance at Worthy Farm.

Other acts believed to be in the running are Depeche Mode at 6-4 and David Bowie at 3-1, followed by Elbow and Oasis who are currently neck and neck at 4-1.

Prince, Kasabian and Arcade FIre are also up among the main contenders, according to Ladbrokes – although more ambitious punters might prefer a wager on Susan Boyle who is currently a 100-1 outsider to headline.

Ladbrokes also appear confident of Glastonbury continuing to entertain festival-goers for some years to come – offering odds of 2-1 on the event continuing until at least the year 2020.

‘It looks like those lucky enough to get a ticket for Glastonbury 2014 will be watching Fleetwood Mac,’ said spokesperson Alex Donohue.

‘The good news for those who missed out is that the odds suggest the festival will run for years to come.’

Organiser Michael Eavis recently revealed that the headline acts for 2014 were ‘more or less in place’, hinting that they were Glastonbury newcomers.

‘They’re three bands who haven’t played Glastonbury – and that’s important,’ he said.

‘There aren’t many bands left who haven’t played the festival, and before we run out I’d like to persuade the ones on my wish list to come down.’

Tickets for next year’s festival, which will take place from June 25-29, sold out in just one hour and 27 minutes when they went on sale on Sunday morning.

The line-up for the 2014 event will be announced in due course.

I'm there already! I'll chain myself to the barrier of the Pyramid the whole day just to be at the front for this. I just PRAY it happens! It has to! Although when we asked Mick about it at the M&G (just a week after his comments at the IYD premiere) he seemed more negative about it. What I did think was hilarious was that he got his manager over and said 'these girls want to talk to you about glastonbury'. Their manager kind of turned it down saying they can make more money out of arena tours. I said NO WAY! At Glastonbury you would be appealing to those who are already fans and would attract young people or people who may never have listened to FM before. Not to mention the fact the performance would be broadcast across the entire UK and globally! What more do you need?! Their record sales would soar and their fan base would increase massively. Mick talked about how FM could have been bigger back in the day but they didn't have the knowledge of how to do it (at the m&g) Well, now is your chance. I told the manager to think it over and do some research.

Rant over! HA!

From a Contact Music article about Arcade Fire, December 22, 2013

http://www.contactmusic.com/article/...y-2014_4005844

At that time, the one band most people had tipped Fleetwood Mac for a headlining slot at next years festival, and they still remain one of the favourites to headline the main stage next year alongside AF. Depeche Mode, Pearl Jam, Kanye West, Prince and Daft Punk are also being hotly tipped to perform at the festival next year, but for now the Eavis's are staying quiet.

At this point, Fleetwood Mac playing Glastonbury this year seems entirely logical. It would be the perfect place to debut Christine's full return: in her home country, at probably the hottest music festival in the world (at the moment).

Default Fleetwood Mac Will NOT play Glastonbury 2014

Organiser Michael Eavis says he hopes the band will play the festival in 2015.

December 26th, 2013 Paul Tamburro

Glastonbury 2014 organiser Michael Eavis has denied that the band will headline next year's festival, despite rumours that they were set to take to the Pyramid Stage at some point during the weekend-long event.

Speaking to The Guardian, Eavis said that although Fleetwood Mac were not penned in for a performance at the festival in 2014, he still hoped that he could secure a performance from them in the future, saying: "We're hoping to get them for 2015, but not next year."

Thus far the only confirmed headliner for the festival is Arcade Fire, who will be playing a set on the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night. Lily Allen has also said she will be performing.

good to hear some definitive news.

so FM will not be touring in 2014.

hope Lindsey is not holed up in the studio all year, but gets restless at some point and heads out for a few dates.

Hmm, I bet 2015 will be the year Fleetwood Mac returns with Christine. 2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the white Fleetwood Mac album, and the Rumours incarnation of the band. Let's hope they spend 2014 in the recording studio so they'll have a new album to herald the triumphant return of Christine!
