The Fleetwood Mac Story is an episodic saga that spans more than 30 years, starting in 1967 as a British blues band that later became a California-based pop group in the mid-Seventies. In between came a period where Fleetwood Mac shuffled personnel and experimented with styles, all the while releasing solid albums with chart topping hits.
Perhaps just as well known for their tangled relationships and addictions, as they were for their music, Fleetwood Mac had massive success and can be found on every list of the world’s top selling bands.
Mixing relationships and business together can either be a disaster or lead to success. With Fleetwood Mac, although the breakups of band members John and Christine McVie as well as Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks created chaos, it lead to the creation of the hit album Rumours with hit singles Go Your Own Way, Dreams and Don’t Stop. Todate, Fleetwood Mac has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide.
Fans of the band can expect to hear all your favourites, Little Lies, 7 Wonders, Everywhere, Landslide and The Chain.
Tickets are R140 (R129 for pensioners and tables of eight or more – first weekend only). The venue opens 90 minutes before the show, so bring food picnic baskets but no drinks. There is a cash bar.
