Details: Released in 1977, Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours is the seventh best-selling album of all time (the third best-selling 70s album), moving 800,000 copies per week at its height and selling more than 40 million copies to date. With the arrival of Rumours, Fleetwood Mac underwent “that alchemic transmigration from lead to gold” according to Rolling Stone’s five-star review of the record. Its success made Fleetwood Mac a cultural phenomenon and set a template for pop music forever.
Harkening back to the days when legendary clubs like the El Mocambo, Silver Dollar Room and Horseshoe Tavern were packing them in–the air stale with cigarette smoke and spilled beer–the Coal Mine Theatre is the perfect place to recreate that immersive club feel and present a straight up rock ‘n roll concert of the entire album.
Ominously romantic while dealing with the break-up of the quintet’s two couples, Rumours, which appears on the surface to be an album of love songs with heavenly harmonies, is a contradiction between its cheerful surface and its anguished heart. This is not a re-interpretation of the record, nor a jukebox musical, this is Rumours as you know and love it!
Conceived and guided by Ted Dykstra, Rumours is the first ever Coal Mine Concert. Starring Mike Borkosky (Musical Supervisor) Lead Guitar and Vocals; Andrea Ramolo and SATE, Vocals; Jen Benton on Bass; Steve Foster on Drums and Vocals; Derek Giberson on Keys.
