In February 1977, Rumours by Fleetwood Mac was born after a lengthy labour of love.
We are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting a series of birthday parties in San Francisco, Los Angeles, London and Phoenix to celebrate one of the greatest albums of all time.
You are cordially invited to attend the 40th birthday Rumours Rave with remixes, edits and originals from Rumours and more from the band and solo projects with DJs:
How could we better the perfect album? We simply cannot, but we will have fun re-framing it for the dance floor. If you haven’t heard of our project before then have a listen to what it’s all about: www.soundcloud.com/fleetmacwood
Since 2012, we have been hosting our tunnel-visioned event and celebrating the extensive back catalogue of Fleetwood Mac.

Dress code: 1977 or your best celebratory sparkles.
