Fleetwood Mac 2013 Neal Preston

Fleetwood Mac, the Grammy winning British/American rock band, will be playing the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines at 8 p.m., on Wednesday, June 26. This concert is part of the Fleetwood Mac Live 2013 arena tour, a 66-concert tour throughout Europe, North America, and Oceania which began on April 4, 2013, in Columbus, Ohio.

Fleetwood Mac’s current lineup includes four Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees: Drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie, original members since 1967; and guitarist/vocalist Lindsey Buckingham and singer Stevie Nicks, members since 1975.

These four, along with former member Christine McVie, recorded Fleetwood Mac’s iconic 1977 album Rumours, the eighth highest selling album of all time. “Rumours” features the No. 1 single “Dreams,” as well as hits “Don’t Stop,” “Go Your Own Way,” and “You Make Loving Fun.”

Tickets are available for $49, $79, $99 and $149. Tickets can be purchased on the Iowa Events Center’s website, online at dahlstickets.com, at the Wells Fargo Arena Box Office, at all Dahl’s Foods locations, or by phone by calling 866-55-DAHLS.

The set list for the Fleetwood Mac Live 2013 tour includes many of their classic hits, such as “Landslide,” “Rhiannon,” and “The Chain.” The band is also performing new tunes “Sad Angel” and “Without You.” Both new songs are off Fleetwood Mac’s new four-song EP, “Extended Play,” released April 30, 2013.

The Fleetwood Mac Live 2013 tour marks Fleetwood Mac’s first set of live performances since their sold out Unleashed tour in 2009.
