Harry Styles, Lorde, Haim to honor Fleetwood Mac at MusiCares gig

Classic line-up of band will also give a special performance at Radio City Music Hall event

In January, Fleetwood Mac will become the first band to receive the MusiCares Person of the Year Award. Harry Styles, Lorde, Haim and many other artists influenced by the group will gather at Radio City Music Hall two days before the 60th Annual Grammy Awards to pay tribute to the band with a special concert.

“It’s a tremendous honor to be the first band to receive the MusiCares Person of the Year award,” Mick Fleetwood wrote in a statement. “Independently and together, we all set off on a journey to spend our lives as artists, songwriters and musicians. None of us did it alone and there were plenty of helping hands along the way, so we applaud and celebrate MusiCares’ guiding principles of giving musicians a helping hand and a place to turn in times of need.”

Taking place on January 26th, the band’s most classic line-up — Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie and John McVie — will perform together at the show. John Legend, OneRepublic and Keith Urban have also been announced as artists honoring the group with covers of classic songs off albums like Rumours, Fleetwood Mac, Tusk and Tango in the Night.

Proceeds from this benefit gala will provide financial and medical support as well as other personal needs to musicians. Ticket packages range from $17,500 to $75,000 and include multiple seats, gifts and more. Individual seats range in price from $1,750 to $8,500.

Past recipients have included Bonnie Raitt, Neil Young, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan and, most recently, Tom Petty.

Fleetwood Mac was named MusiCares Person of the Year back in July.

  • REVIEW: Fleetwood Mac at Rod Laver Arena Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    Given the well-documented dramas they’ve endured over the decades, you assumed by now Fleetwood Mac were pretty much invincible. However reuniting that classic Rumours-era line-up back for the 2014/2015 tour proved they had one more soap opera-style twist up their billowing sleeves. So in 2019, it’s either this Lindsey Buckingham-free version of Fleetwood Mac or […]

    FLEETWOOD MAC ★★★★ Rod Laver Arena, until September 9 Eighteen months ago, it seemed positively absurd that someone like Neil Finn – a well known musician and songwriter in his own right who had by no means put his feet up – could, or even would, join a band like Fleetwood Mac. Perhaps it still […]

Its only remaining founding member is drummer Mick Fleetwood, who recently described each version of the group as “incredibly different musical episodes in this Shakespearean play […]
  • Seeing Fleetwood Mac in 2019 is a strange experience — but they’ve always been a strange band Wednesday, August 21, 2019
    If their songs weren’t so strong, endurance may be Fleetwood Mac’s greatest legacy Thirty minutes into Fleetwood Mac’s set at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre this week, Stevie Nicks admitted that she didn’t realise “Black Magic Woman” was a Fleetwood Mac song until well after she’d joined the band. It’s an astounding admission. Sure, the song […]
