Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
Fortunately for Fleetwood Mac and fans, the rumors are finally true. After a 15 year break, original singer/songwriter Christine McVie has indeed rejoined the group and returned to her familiar place behind the electric piano.
The Lancashire-born songstress signed on with the struggling Fleetwood Mac in 1970, several years before Americans Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks were invited in. Before joining (and marrying Mac bassist John McVie), McVie was known around England as Christine Perfect and had already attained notoriety as the songwriter and front-woman for the blues-rock band Chicken Shack.
“Christine McVie toured with Fleetwood Mac in 1997 following the group’s live album The Dance," said Marta Ault at online ticket marketplace BuyAnySeat.com. “Fortunately, with the warm reception she received during a guest appearance with the band in London last year, she has lost her reluctance to tour.”
“Now with the band’s upcoming 38-date reunion tour, dubbed On With the Show, the opportunity to see the group together again is sending ticket sales to the top of the charts. That’s why we’re proud to offer fans the most complete and continuously refreshed selection of tickets online, with a worry-free guarantee to protect their purchase,” added Ault.
“To access the complete listing of Fleetwood Mac tickets we currently have available, fans can go to BuyAnySeat.com and search for Fleetwood Mac – then select their tickets.”
After 1997, McVie was present for the group's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, but bowed out shortly thereafter. She played on two songs on "Say You Will," a 2003 set, but wasn't credited as a member of the group. McVie also released a solo album in 2004 called In the Meantime.
Fleetwood Mac did not reach resounding commercial success until seven years after Christine McVie joined her husband-to-be on stage. After Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined the group as a team on New Year's Eve in 1974, the band achieved acclaim with the release of Number One albums Fleetwood Mac in 1975 and Rumours in 1977.
Once the band hit the big time, McVie kept on penning hits such as "You Make Loving Fun," "Think About Me," "Hold Me," and "Say You Love Me." It has been 45 years since Fleetwood Mac’s first album, and 35 years since their best-selling Rumours album, which has sold over 45 million copies worldwide, making it the fourth-highest-selling album of all time.

Now decades later, many of the major-label pop acts have been making their Fleetwood Mac influence known. One example is "Days Are Gone," the debut album by California trio Haim. In addition, Paramore, Brandi Carlile, Lykke Li and Jenny Lewis have proudly covered Fleetwood Mac songs.
Fleetwood Mac is also revered in Nashville, where bands like Little Big Town and Lady Antebellum mimic their arrangements and harmonies. Taylor Swift has also been proudly borrowing from Fleetwood Mac since the beginning of her career. In fact, according to reviewers, Swift's understanding of pop architecture and firm hand with a love story strongly resemble Christine McVie's.
Last year, Fleetwood Mac Live 2013 was the band's first tour since 2009. Both Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham released solo albums and toured last year as well, but the band itself hasn’t released an album since 2003.
McVie says that her decision to leave the band was very simple. "I had some deluded idea that I wanted to live the 'country lady' life," she told Rolling Stone. "But I went through a divorce and I felt isolated in the country. I grew quite ill and depressed."
Now with the return of Christine McVie, who will add her distinctive vocal harmonies and precise piano parts to the group's world-famous songs, the group will be able to perform songs like "Over My Head", "Little Lies", "You Make Loving Fun", "Everywhere" and many other hits they haven't been able to play in nearly 20 years.
No wonder tickets to see the Rumours-era lineup including Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood on their latest reunion tour have become so popular.
