Fleetwood Mac Announce Deluxe Edition Of Their Classic Live Album


Fleetwood Mac have announced a new deluxe edition of their classic ‘Fleetwood Mac Live’ album.

The record consists of live versions from their tours in 1979 and 1980. It was originally released in December 1980.

Rhino are now preparing to re-release ‘Fleetwood Mac Live’ in a ‘super deluxe’ format on April 9. The album is set to be presented in a new 3xCD/2xLP collection, featuring a remastered version of the original release on both 180-gram vinyl and CD.

The new edition will also include more than an hour of unreleased Fleetwood Mac live music on the third CD that was recorded between 1977 and 1982.

Also included is a bonus 7 inch single which features previously unreleased demos of ‘Fireflies’ and ‘One More Night’.

To mark the release, Fleetwood Mac have shared a previously unreleased live perfomance of ‘The Chain’ from a concert in Cleveland from 1980. You can check it out here.

The 14 live tracks that debut on the new deluxe version are from the band’s ‘Tusk’ tour from 1979 and 1980, the ‘Rumours’ tour from 1977 and the 1982 tour ‘Mirage’.

This new edition of ‘Fleetwood Mac Live’ will be presented in a 12×12 rigid slipcase which comes with a booklet filled with rare photos, a full itinerary for the Tusk Tour and a history of the live album by writer David Wild.

Wild wrote “Then and now, ‘Fleetwood Mac Live’ artfully marks a fascinating time period for a group that, in one form or another, has been on the global stage for more than half a century.”

“It’s a wildly entertaining rock ’n’ roll circus in full swing under a big tent of the band’s own creation as they leave audiences dazzled in locales from Paris, France, to Passaic, New Jersey.”

The new deluxe edition can be pre-ordered here.

Yesterday, Radio Nova reported that Christine McVie believes Stevie Nicks won’t tour with Fleetwood Mac again, you can check our report on it here.
