Fleetwood Mac may never break the chain -- and that's good news for fans.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band announced yesterday that it will be hitting the road for the first time in three years for a 34-date US tour this spring, including a stop into the TD Garden on April 18. Tickets for the shows go on sale beginning Dec. 14.
The tour will celebrate the 35th anniversary of the band's most successful album, "Rumours," and a deluxe reissue will be released early in the year with previously unreleased studio and live tracks. This iteration of Fleetwood Mac will mostly be the same as that 1977 studio recording -- drummer Mick Fleetwood, bassist John McVie, guitarist and vocalist Lindsey Buckingham, and of course, vocalist Stevie Nicks -- except they'll be missing former vocalist and keyboardist Christine McVie, who left the group in 1998.
Take a listen to "The Chain" off "Rumours," the only song on the record in which all five members share a writing credit.
