ULSTER will be celebrating the return of the Mac this December when the legendary Fleetwood Mac play Belfast for the first time in almost 20 years.
Hot on the heels of their successful album Say You Will, current members Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, John McVie and Lindsey Buckingham have announced that they will play a one-off show in the Odyssey Arena, Belfast, on December 8.
The show will be part of the band’s current world tour, the American leg of which has so far received rave reviews.
As well as playing tracks from their new album, the band have been giving fans what they really want — live versions of their greatest hits.
If “rumours” are to be believed, the classic tracks played on the US tour include Dreams, Say Goodbye, Tell Me Lies, Albatross, Go Your Own Way and Gypsy.
Fleetwood Mac formed in 1967 and over the past 26 years have enjoyed multi-million album sales.
The group fell apart in the early-1990s, with Stevie Nicks going on to achieve a successful solo career.
Now back together, minus Peter Green and Jeremy Spencer, the band’s Belfast date is a must for their legion of Ulster fans.
The band were originally due to play just two Dublin dates, on November 19 and 20, but these sold out within minutes.
A similar demand is expected for the Belfast date when tickets go on sale at 9am on Saturday, September 6.
Tickets for the concert cost �, � and �, and will be available from the Odyssey Box Office on 028 9073 9074 or Ticketmaster on 0870 243 4455.
Tickets will also be available online from http://www.ticketmaster.ie
