The Unleashed Tour was a concert tour by the rock band Fleetwood Mac. The tour ran from Mar 1, to September 14, 2009 in the United States, Canada, Germany, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand[1] and was the band's first tour in five years,[2] the group featured tracks within the setlist that spanned “all the Mac’s many greatest hits" and pulled two rarely played live tracks 'Storms' and 'I Know I'm Not Wrong' that ware taken from the Tusk album and resurected the Peter Green track 'Oh Well' for the first time live since 1995. The tour ranked #13 in the Worldwide Concert Tours data that is maintained by Pollstar [3]

Background[edit]

This was the first tour that the later Rumours-era band of Fleetwood Mac had undertaken without a new album to promote, Christine McVie did not participate in this tour as she had retired from the group in 1998.[4] In addition Stevie Nicks spoke about Sheryl Crow potentially joining the band to add an additional female to the group dynamic in the absence of Christine McVie.[5] The group were also planning to re-release their Rumours album album from 1977 as a CD/DVD combo with unreleased songs, demos and previously unreleased footage of the band from that era, however this re-release never materialised and was held back to 2013 when the Rumours deluxe and super-deluxe editions were released.[6]
