PR Newswire (July 22, 1997) -- Fleetwood Mac Home Video/DVD/Laser Disc to Coincide With Release of New Album, MTV Special and National Tour:

"BURBANK, Calif., July 22 /PRNewswire/ --To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Fleetwood Mac's landmark RUMOURS album, the classic Fleetwood Mac line-up-- Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie, John McVie and Stevie Nicks-- reunited in mid-June in Los Angeles for a series of intimate performances on a Warner Bros. Studio soundstage in Burbank. Filmed over the course of three evenings, THE DANCE home video, DVD and laser disc capture the music, magic, and excitement of one of rock's seminal bands, who recently resigned to Reprise Records. Warner Reprise Video is set to release the home video August 26th with DVD release set for September 23rd. The release of the laser disc will be handled by Image Entertainment and is set for release on September 23rd as well.

The release of THE DANCE on home video, DVD and laser disc coincides with the release of the DANCE album (August 19th) and an MTV special (August 12th, 16th & 17th), as well as a VH-1 special on the making of RUMOURS which is part of their "Classic Albums" series. The home video/DVD/laser disc versions of THE DANCE contain several tracks not featured on the album as well as material not featured in the MTV special.

After an absence of over a decade, THE DANCE marks the return of Fleetwood Mac in its best-known and most popular incarnation. RUMOURS, originally released in 1977, established Fleetwood Mac as an international phenomenon and went on to sell over 25 million copies worldwide with an unbroken record of thirty-one consecutive weeks at number one on the Billboard album chart. Besides THE DANCE album/home video/DVD/laser disc and television specials, an extensive tour is set to begin in the fall, marking the first time this quintessential Fleetwood Mac line-up has appeared on the concert stage since 1982.

Song selections on THE DANCE home video/DVD/laser disc include "Dreams," "Temporary One," "Bleed To Love Her," "Big Love," "Landslide," "Say That You Love Me," "Silver Springs," "Rhiannon," "Go Your Own Way," "Tusk," "Don't Stop," "The Chain," "Everywhere," "So Afraid," "You Make Loving Fun" and "Sweet Girl." Tracks not on the album but contained on the home video/DVD/laser disc include "Over My Head," "Gold Dust Woman," "Gypsy," "Songbird" and "Go Insane."
