Legendary group will perform ‘Sisters Of The Moon’ for the first time since early 1980s
Stevie Nicks has revealed that Fleetwood Mac will play a rarely performed track on their upcoming world tour.
Nicks was speaking to Billboard at the SXSW screening of In Your Dreams, the Dave Stewart-directed documentary about the making of her latest solo album of the same title, when she let slip Fleetwood Mac’s set plans, which includes playing ‘Sisters Of The Moon’.
On getting back out on the road with Fleetwood Mac, she said: “I’m in rehearsals with them now. We go from ‘Go Your Own Way’ to ‘Sara’ to ‘Never Going Back…’ to ‘Landslide’. This time we’re actually doing ‘Sisters of the Moon’ which we haven’t done since 1979 or 1980.”
The singer also said the band plan on doing twenty-four songs in the set, but said they still have a lot of rehearsal to do if they want to fulfil her promise when the tour kicks off in the US in April. “I’m sitting there looking at the board going, ‘Oh my God, we’re only halfway through’,” she said. “We have 12 songs to go and we’ve been playing for six hours!”
One thing that doesn’t need to improve, however, is Nick’s voice. Since finding a vocal coach in 1997, the singer has been able to keep her singing voice in check and plans to continue performing into her 80s. “Opera singers plan to sing into their 80s. I plan to not be doing 190 shows when I’m 85, but I do plan to be out there singing when I am a seriously older woman. I think my voice will still be pretty good because I’m not gonna let it go,” she boasted.
Last month, the band announced details of two new dates at London’s O2 Arena on their forthcoming UK tour. They will now play The O2 on September 25 and 27 in addition to the previously announced date of September 24 due to huge demand for the shows.
Fleetwood Mac will play:
Dublin 02 (September 20)
London O2 Arena (24, 25, 27)
Birmingham LG Arena (29)
Manchester Arena (October 1)
Glasgow The Hydro (3)
