Rumor has it the music of Fleetwood Mac will rock the Arcadia Theater.

TUSK – The Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Experience will take to the stage at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 26 at the theater, 1418 Graham Ave., Windber.

The band covers all of the greatest hits of Fleetwood Mac, which has featured the talents of Mick Fleetwood, Christine and John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and others over the years.

Fleetwood Mac has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time.

The five seasoned musicians comprising TUSK have been making music together in various combinations and styles, from complete originals to covers, for over 30 years.

Authentic-sounding and always respectful, the band leaves no stone unturned in replicating Fleetwood Mac’s songs.

“We had this group here a couple of years ago, but it was for a private show,” said Jerry Ledney, the theater’s executive director.

“The audience reaction was really good, so we thought this would be a nice show to bring back that we could open up to the public.

Attendees can expect to hear many of Fleetwood Mac’s hits such as “Landslide,” “Rhiannon,” “Dreams,” “Gypsy,” “Say You Love Me” and “Everywhere.”

“We’ve had patrons in more than one instance say it would be nice to see a Fleetwood Mac show, so we followed up on that to see if we could find a show that we like that’s a quality calibre,” Ledney said.

Fronted by solo artist Kathy Phillips on vocals and supported by veteran players Scott McDonald on guitar and vocals, Kim Williams on keyboard and vocals, Randy Artiglere on bass and Tom Nelson on drums, TUSK takes its audiences on a sweet ride down memory lane.

“This is a show for people of all ages; no matter your age you are going to recognize the songs,” Ledney said.

Following the show, attendees will be able to meet the musicians in the theater’s lobby.

“People love to talk to the artists and get their picture taken and autographs,” Ledney said. “The talent is very receptive to the idea as well.”

Ledney said those wanting to attend should get tickets soon because only a few remain.

“This will be a fun show, and it also will be a sold-out show,” he said.

Tickets are $34, $30 and $26.

Tickets can be purchased at the box office, by calling 467-9070 or online at arcadiawindber.com.
