fleetwood mac
Critically acclaimed Australian duo ANGUS & JULIA STONE have today been announced as ‘very special guests’ – on all outdoor shows – opening for the legendary FLEETWOOD MAC during their On With The Show World Tour in Australia and New Zealand this October/November.

Angus & Julia Stone will perform at the Perth, Adelaide, Hunter Valley and Geelong shows in Australia, as well as all New Zealand dates.

Since the release of their latest and self-titled album, produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, Angus and Julia Stone have been playing to sell out audiences across Europe, UK, US and Canada and Australia. In addition, they also recently played at Coachella and the New York City’s Governor’s Ball and before returning to open for Fleetwood Mac, Angus and Julia will continue playing various festivals throughout Europe and North America including Chicago’s Lollapalooza Festival and San Francisco’s Outside Lands Festival.

Angus and Julia’s #1 album has reached platinum status in Australia, and topped the charts in France and Switzerland. The album has also given the duo a #5 iTunes album in Botswana, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany. The current single called ‘From The Stalls’ has just been released, and the stunning video can be viewed here.

Also joining the tour at Australian winery shows of Mt Duneed Estate in Geelong on November 7, and the two Hope Estate Winery shows in the Hunter Valley on November 14 and November 15, will be Melbourne’s STONEFIELD who have spent the past two years touring relentlessly. Stonefield have just released their new single ‘Golden Dream’, the first taste of new music from the Findlay sisters that showcases a dreamier, more psychedelic sound than previously heard from the four-piece.

Fleetwood Mac will be touring as a five-piece for the first time since 1998, and the On With The Show World Tour will mark their first series of concert dates in Australia and New Zealand since 2009’s sold-out Unleashed Tour.


The rumours are true – the legendary FLEETWOOD MAC will bring their On With The Show World Tour to Australia and New Zealand in 2015.

The On With The Show Tour will mark Fleetwood Mac’s first series of concert dates in Australia and New Zealand since 2009’s sold-out Unleashed Tour.

Touring as a five-piece for the first time since 1998, one of music’s most enduring groups of all time, Fleetwood Mac, will play a selection of arena, stadium and winery shows this October – November.

All five original band members are back together, with Christine McVie rejoining band mates Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks after a 16-year absence.

The news of Fleetwood Mac’s return is particularly welcomed by Australian and New Zealand fans after the band were unfortunately forced to cancel their sold-out 2013 dates.

The On With The Show Tour will see Fleetwood Mac on stage for close to two and a half hours, showcasing hits and classic songs from their career that spans more than four decades and global album sales in excess of 100 million, including songs such as: “The Chain”, “Dreams”, “Second Hand News”, “Rhiannon”, “Sara”, “Gold Dust Woman”, “Tusk”, “Looking Out for Love”, “Don’t Stop”, “Go Your Own Way”…and the list goes on and on.

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 10am on Wednesday April 1.

American Express Card Members will have an opportunity to purchase tickets before the general public from midday Tuesday March 24 for New Zealand shows and midday, Thursday March 26 for Australian shows. Visit facebook.com/AmericanExpress for complete pre-sale information.

My Live Nation members can also be among the first to secure tickets during the pre-sale beginning at midday on Friday March 27 in New Zealand members and midday Monday March 30 in Australia. For complete details visit: www.livenation.com.au or www.livenation.co.nz.

Fleetwood Mac’s sold out shows throughout North America have garnered rave reviews.

“The principal emotion during the nearly 2 1/2-hour performance was the joy of having keyboardist McVie back in this group… She brought high harmonies and several songs, including ‘Little Lies,’ ‘You Make Loving Fun’ and the closing ‘Songbird,’ back into the repertoire. Nicks hasn’t sounded this good since the early ’90’s. What a rhythm machine and what an articulate emotional guitarist Buckingham is.” – Minneapolis Star Tribune

“It’s still magical. Between Buckingham’s epic guitar solos, Mick Fleetwood’s massive drumming, John McVie’s strong bass work, Nicks’ patented spins to punctuate the lovely ‘Gypsy’ and Christine McVie’s lush vocals, Fleetwood Mac looked ready to take on what Buckingham has called ‘the next chapter.'” – Newsday

“Fleetwood Mac has the intricacy, elegance and underlying punch of its songs…” – The New York Times.

“With Christine’s songs back in the set, her calm, angular presence back on the stage, there was an undeniable feeling of rejuvenation… Fleetwood and John McVie on bass reminded concert-goers why the band is named for them… They still put a layer of muscle behind everything the band did… Buckingham was ferocious and tireless as lead guitar. This man is a vital musical presence – the soul of the band. Ditto for the vitality of Nicks, its cauldron-stirring spirit… Her showcase songs, ‘Landslide,’ ‘Gold Dust Woman’ and, especially ‘Silver Springs,’ were the night’s highlights.” – Chicago Tribune

This is a tour not be missed.

ARIA Chart News – w/c November 15, 2010

Bon Jovi tops ARIA Album Chart on debut, as ARIA Awards performers race up Album & Singles Charts
International superstars Bon Jovi this week achieve their eighth ARIA Album Chart No.1 with the debut of “Bon Jovi Greatest Hits”. It’s the band’s first chart-topper since “Have A Nice Day” entered in peak position in September 2005, with the past four #1 albums coming in at five-year intervals; “These Days” hit the top in July 1995, followed by “Crush” in 2000.

Meanwhile, entering the ARIA Album Chart at #2 with her sophomore release “The Gift” is Britain’s leading lady Susan Boyle. Her debut album “I Dreamed A Dream” took the chart by storm last Christmas, spending a mammoth eleven weeks at the top and achieving nine times Platinum status in the process. “I Dreamed A Dream” makes a return to the top 40 this week, coming in at #20.

Following the music industry’s ‘night of nights’ last week, local ARIA Awards performers enjoy a significant spike on both the ARIA Singles and Album Charts. The night’s big winners, Angus & Julia Stone, took out gongs for Single of the Year with “Big Jet Plane” and Album of the Year with “Down The Way” – “Down The Way” jumps from #10 to 5 on the Album Chart, while the hit tune “Big Jet Plane” races up the ARIA Singles Chart into a new peak position of #21. After delivering a jaw-dropping performance at the awards ceremony, Sydneysider Washington shoots twenty-two spots up the ARIA Album Chart to #13 with her acclaimed record “I Believe You Liar”.

Also experiencing a kick after their ARIA Awards performances are Perth lads Birds Of Tokyo, whose self-titled album jumps five spots to #15 and smash single “Plans” climbs seven spots to #13. Quirky singer/songwriter Sia scored a double ARIA Awards win for Best Pop Release and Best Independent Release for “We Are Born”. Her award-winning record peaked at No.2 earlier this year and is up a huge twenty-one spots to #18 this week, while “Clap Your Hands” advances nine spots to #17 and “I Go To Sleep” makes a #32 debut on the ARIA Singles Chart. The John Butler Trio’s former chart-topper “April Uprising” moves up ten spots to #21 on the ARIA Album Chart following their stripped-back performance of “Revolution” last Sunday night.

In further ARIA Album Chart news, homegrown pop princess Jessica Mauboy secures a #6 debut with “Get ‘Em Girls”. It’s her third Australian chart album, and the second album to make a top 10 entrance; Jess’s debut record “The Journey” entered and peaked at #4 in 2007. “Some Kind Of Trouble” from James Blunt comes in at #11 in its first week on the album chart, Michael Jackson’s “The Essential Michael Jackson” climbs from #40 to 23, and new favourite Cee-Lo Green debuts at #24 with “The Lady Killer”. “Libra Scale” from r’n’b star Ne-Yo debuts at #36 this week.

Ke$ha holds at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart for the second week running, as “The Time (Dirty Bit)” gives The Black Eyed Peas their fourteenth Australian top 10 single. It debuts at #10 and is the band’s tenth single to achieve a top 10 entrance. “Grenade” from Bruno Mars blasts seventeen spots up the chart to #23, with further chart debuts claimed by Jason Derulo and “The Sky’s The Limit” at #24, Nelly featuring T-Pain & Akon and “Move That Body” at #29 and “Teenage Dream” from Glee Cast at #35. Coldplay’s “Fix You” featured last week in Channel 7’s drama ‘Packed To The Rafters’ and consequently returns to the top 40, sitting at #37.

ARIA Chart News – w/c 12th April 2010

Having spent the last three weeks at number two, Lady Gaga’s album “The Fame Monster” takes over the top position on this week’s ARIA Album Chart. The album’s entire eighteen-week chart life has been spent in the top 10. On the ARIA Singles and Digital Track Charts, Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” holds firm for a fourth consecutive week, well on the way to becoming one of this year’s most successful chart toppers. It is the only single in the top 17 of this week’s singles chart that has a physical component.

“I Like That” from Richard Vission & Static Revenger featuring Luciana makes a bold move up the ARIA Singles Chart this week, jumping from 7 to 3 and edging ever closer to top spot. With a visit to our shores scheduled for later this month, Justin Bieber’s “Baby” featuring Ludacris moves up from 11 to 6, and “Nothin’ On You” from B.o.B. (featuring Bruno Mars) hits the top 10, moving up from 14 to 8. Also achieving their first top 10 single result is UK outfit Florence + The Machine, blasting up eight places to #9 this week with their hit single “You’ve Got The Love”. Another artist to visit on a promotional tour recently is US superstar Adam Lambert, who sees his single “Whataya Want From Me” grow week on week – this week he just misses out on an Aussie top 10 result as the single moves up five places to #11. Miley Cyrus also continues her upward trajectory, racing forward nine places to a top 20 result, landing at #19 this week with “When I Look At You”. Top 40 debuts this week are lead by Usher featuring Will.I.Am at #15 with “OMG”, followed by Lady Gaga at #28 with “Alejandro” and The Temper Trap at 32 with “Love Lost”
