Back by popular demand at Rhumbelow, The Reals will present their show, The Chain - The Fleetwood Mac Story featuring  Barry Thomson, Dawn Selby, Mali Sewell/Andy Turrell (drums), Trevor Donjeany, guest guitarist Colin Peddie and Durban singer Marion Loudon.

The show runs at Rhumbelow Durban from December 10 to 12 and from December 17 to 19 before it moves to Tina’s Hotel in Kloof.

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-Seventies. 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 led 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 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 your favourites Little Lies, 7 Wonders, Everywhere, Landslide, The Chain and then some.

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 show runs over two weekends at Rhumbelow Durban from December 10 to 19. Friday and Saturday performances at 19h00 and Sundays at 14h00. (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for snacks/drinks)
