Return of the (Fleetwood) Mac

Turns out the Rumours were true.

Turns out the Rumours were true — Fleetwood Mac are touring Australia and New Zealand in 2013.

Founded in the late-'60s as a blues band, they became superstars in the 1970s (with the addition of Lindsay Buckingham and one Stevie Nicks to the lineup), when songs like 'Rhiannon', 'Go Your Own Way' and 'Dreams' became multimillion sellers and went on to dominate all the best karaoke nights for decades.

The lineup from that golden period broke up in 1987 following years of divorce, drug abuse and an almost-complete breakdown of every relationship in the band, but they reunited this year for a North American (and now, Australian) tour. Reviews from the shows so far have been largely positive, so they might just keep it together through the rest of the year.

If you don't know them, (a) seriously? and (b) just check your parents' record collection — they'll be there.

Announced on the weekend, the tour currently stands at eight dates throughout November and December — but big gaps between shows have already led to speculation that more dates will be added if the shows sell out quickly.

Tickets for the Australian concerts go on sale Thursday, June 13.
