Fleetwood Mac 1977

Rumours was released on the 4th of February 1977 and on 28 February, after rehearsing at SIR Studios in Los Angeles, Fleetwood Mac started a seven month-long promotional tour of America. In late 1977 they arrived in Australia and headlined the massive outdoor “Rockarena” shows in Sydney and Melbourne. They also played smaller indoor shows in Brisbane and Perth.
