Mick Fleetwood: A life in music at Piccadilly Theatre

Join Fleetwood Mac founder and drummer Mick Fleetwood to celebrate a landmark 50 years since the legendary band’s debut. In conversation with Guardian writer Michael Hann, Fleetwood will share extraordinary and unforgettable tales from his upcoming book that charts the remarkable story of the band up until meeting Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham in 1974.

Love that Burns – A Chronicle of Fleetwood Mac: Volume One 1967-1974 is Fleetwood’s account of the band’s debut performance and its early blues era, first international tours and the musical legacy of founder and former guitarist Peter Green.

Fleetwood Mac debuted at the Windsor Blues and Jazz Festival in 1967, a performance that earned them a record deal. Ten years after their debut, the band had moved from their traditional British blues roots to record Rumours, one of the bestselling pop albums ever.

In its 50-year history, Fleetwood Mac has undergone a number of lineup changes, with Fleetwood and John “Mac” McVie as the two constants. This is a rare opportunity to see one of the band’s original members and hear how it all began.

Love That Burns – A Chronicle of Fleetwood Mac, Volume One: 1967-1974 will be published this autumn (19 September 2017) celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Fleetwood Mac.
