Fleetwood Mac is set to hit the road again Jan. 31 after a winter break, kicking off a slate of 31 shows booked in U.S. and Canadian cities through mid-April. 
The trek is a continuation of the band’s 11-week run last fall that launched at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla., on Oct. 3. The opening leg of the tour played 29 cities in North America through Dec. 15, ending with a three-night stint at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., that grossed $5.9 million from 42,628 sold seats.
Box office tallies from the jaunt’s first leg show a gross average of $1.8 million per concert based on ticket sales reported to Pollstar. The average number of sold tickets per show is 13,947. From the 28 reported concerts from the fall run, overall grosses topped $48 million from 362,614 total tickets.
Among the highlights of the upcoming trek this spring, three venues will host the band for two performances. New York City’s Madison Square Garden will bring in the group on March 11 and March 18, Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia is booked for March 22 and April 5, and the tour hits Boston’s TD Garden on March 31 and April 2. A March 1 show at United Center in Chicago and an April 8 date at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena will be second stops for those venues on the tour. The band performed at both during the opening run last fall.
Following the North American stretch, Fleetwood Mac will head to Europe in June for headlining dates in Berlin, Dublin and London along with festival appearances at Werchter (Belgium) Boutique and Pinkpop Festival in Landgraaf, Netherlands.
The tour features original band members Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie along with Neil Finn and Mike Campbell who joined the tour following the departure of Lindsey Buckingham.
Nicks is a 2019 inductee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist, marking her second time to be honored with an invitation. She was previously inducted when Fleetwood Mac was invited to join the Hall of Fame in 1998.
