Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 3/27/14 Fleetwood Mac To Tour With McVie
(The Six O’Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
Well, the…”Rumo(u)rs” have come to fruition! Fleetwood Mac is set to hit the road again in 2014, with Christine McVie rejoining the band for a full tour for the first time since 1998. (She joined the band for a one-off in London last September) Her ex-husband, bass player John McVie, was diagnosed with cancer just weeks later, forcing the band to cancel tour dates down under. Now, John has a clean bill of health, Christine is back, and Lindsay, Stevie, and Mick are set to hit the road with them for what promises to be a tour for the times. The last tour with the band’s most popular lineup (in terms of charts and sales) yielded the fifth-best selling live album in U.S. history, The Dance.
Tonight, we mark the announcement with three tracks off of that live LP. We’ll start with Christine on lead vocals for “Say You Love Me”, followed by the Lindsay Buckingham masterpiece, and absolute live mind-blower, “I’m So Afraid”, and the triumphant version of “Tusk”, complete with the USC Trojan Marching Band. It’s tonight’s Six O’Clock Triple Shot, only on 94.9 WMMQ!!
