The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band have announced a North American tour starting in September.
Drummer Fleetwood has just one commitment with Fleetwood Mac during 2016 – at the Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles on July 28.
Later in the year he’ll deliver set based around his main band’s early years, with assistance from frontman Rick Vito, keyboardist Mark Johnstone and bassist Lenny Casellanos.
Fleetwood says: “Over my career I’ve been called a pop star and a rock star – yet in my inner heart I’ll always be part bluesman. I’ve always remembered where I started.
“A lot of guys can play the licks, but Rick Vito has the tone and that’s so important in real blues. And any bassist who plays with me has big shoes to fill.”
