The Reals will be back at the Rhumbelow for the next two weekends, this time paying tribute to one of the world’s biggest hit-making machines – Fleetwood Mac.

The Fleetwood Mac Story is an episodic saga that spans more than 30 years, starting in 1967 as a British blues band that later became a California-based pop group in the mid-70s. In between came a period where Fleetwood Mac shuffled personnel and experimented with styles, all the while releasing solid albums with chart topping hits.

Perhaps just as well known for their tangled relationships and addictions, as they were for their music, Fleetwood Mac had massive success and can be found on every list of the world’s top selling bands.

Mixing relationships and business together can either be a disaster or lead to success. With Fleetwood Mac, although the breakups of band members John and Christine McVie as well as Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks created chaos, it lead to the creation of the hit album Rumours with hit singles Go Your Own Way, Dreams and Don’t Stop. To date, Fleetwood Mac has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide.

The Reals, with Durban favourites Dawn Selby on the keyboard, Barry Thomson on the guitar, Jason Andrew on the bass and Mali Sewell on drums, will cover all the great hits of Fleetwood Mac, which will also feature regular guest, Durban singer Marion Loudon as well as guitarist Colin Peddie. Expect to hear all favourites such as Little Lies, 7 Wonders, Everywhere, Landslide, The Chain and more. Authentic-sounding and always respectful, The Reals will take the audience on a sweet ride down memory lane, replicating the sounds of one of the world’s best-loved bands.

The Fleetwood Mac Story has performances from December 9 to 11 and again from December 16 to 18 with shows on Fridays and Saturdays at 20h00 and on Sundays at 14h00 and 18h30. (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner). Tickets R140. Bring food picnic baskets (braais will be available). There is a cash bar (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises) and limited secure parking. Booking essential via Computicket or contact Roland on 082 499 8636 or email or visit
