Sure, Fleetwood Mac recently reissued their 1977 mega-hit album Rumours in hundred-dollar deluxe configurations with T-shirts and posters and a couple droplets of the witch juju Stevie Nicks used to withstand the rise of punk. And sure, the Big Mac has served up over 100 million LPs in sales worldwide. But all this still doesn’t really explain why the classic lineup (sans Christine McVie) is touring for the second time in a decade with no new album, despite having songs written. Rumor is, though, that they’ll play two new ones. The rest will just have to be hits.
