(BW)(NY-REPRISE-RECORDS) Fleetwood Mac is Back with New Studio Album, 40 City U.S. Tour

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 4, 2003--Fleetwood Mac, one of the most influential and enduring groups in modern musical history, will release their eagerly anticipated new studio album "Say You Will," April 15th on Reprise Records which will be followed up by a U.S. live tour.

The collection of original material features songs and performances by creative mainstays Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham and founding members Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, thus marking the release of their first studio album since the band's multi-platinum l986 release, "Tango In The Night."

"Say You Will," was recorded over the past eighteen months in Los Angeles, with Lindsey Buckingham at the production helm.

Adding to the excitement surrounding the release of "Say You Will" is the news that Fleetwood Mac will embark on a barnstorming 40-city arena tour in major U.S. markets including Washington, D.C.; Pittsburgh; Cleveland; New York; Atlanta; Ft. Lauderdale; and Detroit, amongst others. The tour will kick off on May 7th in Columbus, Ohio. Tickets are scheduled to go on sale in March.

"Say You Will" is the latest milestone in The Year of Fleetwood Mac, which began with the release of their deluxe greatest hits album, "The Very Best Of Fleetwood Mac," and celebrates one of the most popular and innovative musical institutions of our time.

Fleetwood Mac made history in the mid-Seventies with the release of such era-defining albums as "Fleetwood Mac," "Rumours" and "Tusk." Their catalog of smash hits -- from "Don't Stop" to "Rhiannon" to "Go Your Own Way" to "Landslide" (currently a Top 20 hit for the Dixie Chicks) and beyond -- constitutes a soundtrack for our times. As fresh and original today as when they first defined the rock & roll idiom, it is that same creative chemistry that continues with "Say You Will."
