Legendary Rock Band Fleetwood Mac Is Touring New Zealand in 2019

It's the return of the Mac.

Four years ago, legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Fleetwood Mac toured New Zealand with Christine McVie, who'd just rejoined the band after a 16-year absence. This year, when the British-American group tours the country, the lineup will look a little different.

Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, John McVie and Christine McVie will be joined on stage in September by Crowded House frontman Neil Finn and Mike Campbell, from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, with Lindsey Buckingham controversially axed from the band early last year.

Despite the switch-up — it's not the band's first personnel change, and probably won't be its last — the band will be performing all its biggest hits, from 'Dreams' to 'The Chain' and 'Go Your Own Way'. The six will play four shows in Auckland on September 12, 14, 16 and 19, before flying south to perform one show in Dunedin.

Fleetwood Mac is one of the world's best-selling bands, selling in excess of 100 million albums worldwide, with the album Rumours one of the best-selling of all time. Their New Zealand tour follows the band's 50-show tour of the US.


Auckland — Spark Arena, September 12, 14, 16 and 19
Dunedin — Forsyth Barr Stadium, September 21

Fleetwood Mac tickets for the final show on Saturday, 14 September will be available from midday (local time) Friday, May 3 through Live Nation.
