CENTRESTAGE recreates the beautiful songbook of Fleetwood Mac as they present ‘Fleetwood Mac: Rumours’ for two nights at Old Grey on October 2 and 3.

The band once again consists of a group of consummate vocalists and musicians.

Andre Strydom, beloved for his fronting roles in Centrestage tributes to the likes of The Bee Gees and Neil Diamond, plays bass and is at the helm of this project as no amount of detail has been spared to recreate the beautiful Fleetwood Mac songbook with as much authenticity as possible.

Andre’s daughter and singing partner Caron plays the role of Christine McVie, whilst Lynne Cosme emulates the gravel voice of Stevie Nicks and plays keyboards in the band along with maestro “fingers” Fenlin Pitie.

The tribute to Fleetwood Mac places the emphasis on subtle instrumentation and textured harmonies.

Guitarist Alan Kozak plays Lindsay Buckingham, drummer Devon Van Rooyen is Mick Fleetwood and percussionist and acoustic guitar specialist John Dickin will showcase his guitar-picking style on several songs too.

Fleetwood Mac are originally a British blues band formed in 1967, which became a California-based pop group in the mid-seventies. They recorded the fourth most popular album of all time with their 1979 classic Rumours and went on to have a string of hits in the 90’s.

Songs featured in the show are mostly taken from their 1975 self-titled album, their 1987 album “Tango in the Night” and their live 1997 album “The Dance”, and of course, their epic 1979 album ‘Rumours’ on which the show title is based.

“Rumours” yielded a bumper crop of songs with enduring appeal, among them the Top 10 hits “Go Your Own Way,” “Dreams,” “Don’t Stop” and “You Make Loving Fun.”

Other songs covered include the likes of Gypsy, Dreams, Say You Love Me, Tusk, Little Lies, Seven Wonders, Sara, Big Love, Rhiannon, The Chain, Don’t Stop, Go Your Own Way, Second Hand News, Everywhere, Landslide, Gold Dust Woman and Never Going Back, amongst other favourites.

The show starts at 7:30pm. Tickets are R140 per person or R130 per person for eight tickets or more and can be booked at Computicket or by calling Wendy on 082 661 6921
