Mick Fleetwood is just five months away from hitting the road with a fully reunited Fleetwood Mac, but he's still found the time to take on a new job: The drummer will host a series of television specials called 24 Hours with Mick. "The Fleetwood Mac drummer/founder will spend a day with each guest probing their thoughts, interests and ideas," says a report in the Hollywood Reporter. "The series will showcase an eclectic lineup of interview subjects from a variety of fields, including music and entertainment to technology and politics, art, architecture and more."
So far, no network or premiere date has been announced. Fleetwood will film the show at his Hawaiian home and on the road with Fleetwood Mac. The drummer is personally selecting the guest.
Fleetwood Mac recently put tickets on sale for their first tour with Christine McVie since she left the band in 1998. Some markets have already added second dates and tickets are moving rather quickly. "It won't be too hard to figure out a setlist," Lindsey Buckingham told Rolling Stone. "Stevie and I both have songs we pretty much have to play. When you add in Christine's hits, you pretty much have a set, though that's not to say there won't be a few little surprises around the edges."
The group recorded a few demos earlier this year and there's talk of a new album, but any such project wouldn't surface until after the tour wraps up. "My demos are rough,"McVie told Rolling Stone. "We’re just trying to construct some proper tracks from them and the chemistry is magic."
