Fleetwood Mac will release expanded and deluxe versions of their 1977 blockbuster Rumours album on January 29th, according to Vintage Vinyl News. The set, which comes just short of the 36th anniversary of the album's release, will be issued in an "Expanded Edition" featuring the original album, the Stevie Nicks-written B-Side "Silver Springs," a live collection of tracks from 1977, and a full disc of session outtakes. The "Deluxe Edition" tags on a second disc of outtakes, a remastered vinyl version of the album, and a new documentary focusing on the album's recording sessions, titled, The Rosebud Film.
Around the same time the Rumours box hits the street, Fleetwood Mac will be launching rehearsals for its 2013 tour. With such a broad amount of material to choose from, we asked Stevie Nicks how the band nails down the final concert setlist: "Well, you start going straight through Rumours, you start going through Fleetwood Mac Fleetwood Mac, and Mirage, and Tango In The Night, and you start finding a few little songs that everybody's wanted to do, but never actually suggested. And that's kind of how you do it. And you play those songs and they either work -- they either sound great or they don't. And you just state weeding it down from about 30, 40 songs up on the board and you start taking the cards down, y'know? And pretty soon you start to see that 20 song (setlist), y'know on the horizon."
Fleetwood Mac will kick off its 2013 dates on April 4th at Columbus, Ohio's Nationwide Arena.
