Otago Daily Times, April 1, 2015

http://www.odt.co.nz/news/dunedin/33...d-mac-sell-out

Fleetwood Mac have sold out their November Dunedin show in less than an hour.

There were queues at the box office and with online bookings the public sale tickets were snapped up in an instant.

DVML CEO Terry Davies said he was "delighted'' at the news and while he had not wanted to predict a sell-out ahead of tickets going on sale, he was not surprised at the result.

"Fleetwood Mac's immense popularity is reflected in the speed in which the show has sold out. It's going to be a fantastic night under the roof."

The city has been inundated with requests for accommodation.

Michael Coppel, president and CEO of Live Nation Australasia, the tour's promoter, said he was "genuinely thrilled" to be able to bring Fleetwood Mac back to New Zealand. He called the response to the band's visit - "unbelievable''.

A second show has been announced for Auckland,

I might have a spare 2nd row for Dunedin. I only wanted a single but I was 'forced' to buy a pair to get good seats (yeah, poor little me)

Damn, reading the article above, I'd better book some accomm,


edit: EEEEK! all accommodation on the night of the show is sold out. I hope Dunedin has some nice park benches or beach.

Phew! I got good Auckland tickets but these NZ shows were without doubt the most surprising but fairly shambolic Live Nation presales I've ever seen. I was logged in all morning, refreshing, only for 12pm to get kicked out of the site and completely unable to log in for the next 90 mins or more. When I did get in ticketmaster was down so you couldn't get tickets anyway.

I ended up having to use different devices etc and finally got row A so am really pleased but that wasn't until 4.30pm. It was a VERY stressful several hours dealing with crashing sites etc. Did anyone else have similar issues?

I was just surprised because I use Live Nation presale all the time and have had no problems with recent NZ shows for Eagles, Stones and Springsteen. It all just seemed to go a bit wrong this time. i know loads of people had problems.

Good seats for AKL though - can't wait!!!!

I've got a spare 2nd row for Dunedin to sell at face value to a fan. Is there anyone here from Dunedin?!?!

Bear in mind that accomm is absolutely sold out for the night of the concert.

Paula Yeoman: Gig calendar rapidly filling up

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/entertainm...ectid=11496714

10:49 AM Sunday Aug 16, 2015, NZ Herald.Co.NZ

Fleetwood Mac on November 21 & 22: I would cross oceans to see Fleetwood Mac and have. The most memorable time was in Palo Alto in 1997. Lindsay Buckingham had just rejoined after his highly documented hiatus and it was to be the last time I saw the famous five together. And so, with John McVie back in good health and Christine McVie back on the scene, this is the concert I'm most looking forward to this year.

Accommodation scarce for forthcoming concerts

By Timothy Brown on Sun, 18 Oct 2015 News: Dunedin

Mr Campbell said accommodation was also ''pretty much chocker'' for Fleetwood Mac's November 18 concert in Dunedin.

I-Site staff had been busy finding beds for concert-goers as far afield as Oamaru and Middlemarch.

I've still got a spare 2nd row for Dunedin to sell at face value (it was around $299). Not really sure how to get rid of it without getting ripped off

http://spy.nzherald.co.nz/spy-news/f...as-guest-list/

The members of Fleetwood Mac are set to inject a heavy dose of international star power into tonight's Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards.

Sources have told Spy the band will be in attendance at the ceremony at Auckland's Vector Arena, although there's no word yet on Florence Welch, who was also invited to attend.

Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood played Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium last night and are due to rock Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday and Sunday.

Tonight they'll be sitting alongside New Zealand music's best, including our own international sensation Lorde, who will be presenting the Breakthrough Artist Award, and Neil Finn, who will be presenting The Exponents with the Legacy Award.

WATCH: A classic Kiwi singalong with Jordan Luck

Spy.co.nz will have the VNZMAs red carpet covered with our Spy hosts Laura McGoldrick and Ricardo Simich, as well as the official Spy Glam Cam 360.

Our good friend Anika Moa will also join the team for the night. She will revive her hit Herald webseries Face-to-Face for a Music Awards special, accosting her friends and fellow musicians as only she can.

Plus, we'll have live coverage of the winners, the speeches and behind-the-scenes mischief from the official Spy After Party.

For the best music awards news, photos and videos, stay tuned to spy.co.nz or follow us on Facebook, Twitter (@spynews) and Instagram (@seenbyspy).

I wonder if they will hang on in the area and appear on the ARIA awards on the 26th which is Thanksgiving here in the states.They more likely go home to have turkey in Cali or Hawaii on next Thursday.


I found this on YT by radionz




The states American Music Awards is on Sunday.
