Alright! Fleetwood Mac is scheduled to play Verizon Arena on Friday, May 3. The lineup is the same from the 2009 "Unleashed" tour: Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham.

Tickets are $39-$147 with no additional fees and they go on sale Monday, Dec. 17 at 10 a.m. Call 800-745-3000 or go to ticketmaster.com to get yours. There's a limit of eight tickets.

Nicks told Rolling Stone that the band will likely have two new songs on the setlist and that "2013 is going to be the year of Fleetwood Mac."

Also, as with the "Unleashed" tour, the band isn't promoting a new album, so expect to hear plenty of hits from the band's deep catalog. Buckingham told Rolling Stone that "We always have to play 'Dreams,' 'Rhiannon,' 'Don't Stop,' 'Tusk,' 'Big Love,' 'Landslide' and all our most famous songs," and that "there are areas of our catalog that are more under-explored. Maybe we'll play more songs from 'Tusk.'"

Sweet! I'm going to have to listen to "Tusk" right now.

Does anybody remember the last time Fleetwood Mac played a concert in Little Rock? Buckingham was at Juanita's a few weeks ago, but I don't recall if the band played here in the last few decades. I was looking through some issues of the Times from the '70s a few months ago and saw that they came through town and played Barton Coliseum in 1977. That probably was a good show.

  • Live Review: Fleetwood Mac returns to Verizon with classic lineup reunited

    April 23, 2015
    Fleetwood Mac is a band that embodies change and transformation. After a slew of different lineups, they hit their stride in the mid-‘70s, around the time that many of their fellow Boomers were settling down and starting families. Maybe that’s why their most beloved songs contrast a sort of jaded wisdom with hopeful confidence – the perfect soundtrack for growing up while still feeling young and looking forward to the future. /more/

  • Live Review: Eric Church and Dwight Yoakam at Verizon

    September 15, 2014
    Apparently Dwight Yoakam’s acting career is sufficiently slack enough that Friday night saw him opening for bro-country kingpin Eric Church at Verizon Arena. Hollywood is taking Yoakam in small enough doses (he has a recurring part on CBS’s “Under the Dome”) that he can lend his considerable talents to country music, which currently can use any kind of flavor it can get. /more/

    Since hitting the top of the charts with “Austin” back in 2001, Blake Shelton has worn a number of hats – even though he doesn’t wear a real hat much anymore. He’s a coach on NBC’s reality TV singing competition “The Voice,” he’s a popular co-host for the annual Academy of Country Music awards, he has deals with Pepsi and Pizza Hut and, of course, he’s the husband of country star Miranda Lambert. /more/

    March 31, 2014
    Times photographer Brian Chilson braved the Verizon Arena Friday night to bring us these photos of Cher, and they are bright and colorful and strange. She's on some sort of tribal, Caribbean tip, featuring back-up dancers with shields. I wasn't there, but I obviously should have been. More after the jump: /more/
