Former Fleetwood Mac guitarist, Rick Vito, will join Rumours of Fleetwood Mac (RFM), the world’s leading Fleetwood Mac tribute show, live on stage at Grimsby Auditorium this week.

Rick first performed with Fleetwood Mac in 1987, and appeared on the legendary Tango in the Night tour, Behind the Mask’ and Greatest Hits albums.

He is a Grammy-nominated guitarist and performer who has been active in the music industry since the 1970s, having worked as a solo artist, songwriter, session musician, and as a member of the bands of John Mayall, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Seger, Jackson Browne, Roger McGuinn and many other Rock & Roll Hall of Fame artists.

He is probably best known as an official member of Fleetwood Mac from 1987 to 1991, and more recently as the front man for the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band.

Rick is also the recipient of the WC Handy Award and has eight solo albums, and two solo DVDs in his long list of credits.

“It’s going to be tremendous fun,” he said of the gig at Grimsby and subsequent further UK shows with RFM.

“I met the (RFM) guys last year and we hit it off straight away.

“They are all great musicians and they really manage to capture the live spirit of Fleetwood Mac, something which is very important to me.

“I can’t wait an if it goes well, I’ll aim to be back for more shows in 2016”.

“Having Rick Vito performing live on stage with us, it can’t get any better,” added RFM drummer Allan Cosgrove.

Recognised internationally as the world’s leading Fleetwood Mac tribute show, and with the priceless golden seal of approval from founding member Mick Fleetwood, RFM replicate the power and subtlety of Fleetwood Mac at their best, performing all the classic hits including Black Magic Woman, Albatross, Go Your Own Way, Dreams, Gypsy, Say You Love Me, Sara, Oh Diane, Little Lies and Everywhere.

Their Grimsby gig starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £23.50 and £33.50 on 0300 3000035 or ww.grimsbyauditorium.org.uk
