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.
The Reals, with Durban favourites Dawn Selby on the keyboard, Barry Thomson on the guitar, Jason Andrew on the bass and Mali Sewell on drums, will cover all the great hits of Fleetwood Mac, which will also feature Durban singer Marion Loudon as well as guitarist Colin Peddie.
Expect to hear all your favourites including Little Lies, 7 Wonders, Everywhere, Landslide, The Chain and more.
Authentic-sounding and always respectful, The Reals will take the audience on a sweet ride down memory lane, replicating the sounds of one of the world’s best-loved bands.
