The “Unleashed” tour, beginning on March 1 in Pittsburgh, will travel cross-country featuring 44 shows in major markets.

Fleetwood Mac, the multi-Grammy winning, multi-platinum Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees is back on the road for the first time in five years following several successful solo projects.
“We love our band and think the title of the tour “Unleashed” perfectly describes how we all feel when we get on stage together, especially in 2009. We’re so happy to get back out on the road, perform everyone’s favorite songs and see our fans,” said the band.
In other Fleetwood Mac news, the iconographic Rumours album (certified Diamond signifying sales of more than 10 million units by the RIAA) is scheduled to be re-released as part of a special CD/DVD boxed set on Reprise Records. The boxed set will include several songs from the Rumours album, in their original demo form, along with unreleased tracks recorded during that time period and never-before-seen DVD footage of the band from that era.
