Iconic British-American band Fleetwood Mac have announced a national arena tour.

The band has a tumultuous and soap opera-esque history filled with well-documented drug use; inter-band romantic relationships and a revolving cast of band members. Last year Lindsey Buckingham – considered a core member of the line-up along with Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie, John McVie and Stevie Nicks – left the band (Rolling Stone reports he was fired). For this new Australian tour he has been replaced by beloved Crowded House frontman Neil Finn.

Despite the turmoil the band is responsible for some of the most beloved rock'n'roll songs of the 20th century from '70s blues rock, to shimmering '80s pop and devastating ballads. The band's towering discography includes classics such as Dreams, Rhiannon, Little Lies and Go Your Own Way.

Pre-sale tickets are available from January 24. General ticket sales commence Friday, January 25. Tickets here.
