Sometimes we get some big names on our island. We have been visited by Elton John, Diana Ross and Luciano Pavarotti but as Cyprus isn’t a spot on many performers’ tour list there are some fans out there who could feel a little left out. To help them be able to sing along with songs by their favourite artists or bands, many tribute acts are set to pay tribute to some of the greats this summer and coming over for four performances as of Friday is the Fleetwood Mac tribute band Fleetwood Bac.
Fleetwood Bac is the UK’s first, and some say the world’s most authentic Fleetwood Mac Tribute Show, endorsed by Mick Fleetwood himself and raved about by Peter Green’s biographer. This could be because the five dedicated professional musicians who make up the band take to the stage without any over-the-top productions to celebrate one of the world’s most iconic bands.
The band has spent decades recreating the look, the sound, the mystical atmosphere and that infamous on-stage chemistry of the original band. With these elements now firmly in place, Fleetwood Bac are always on the road somewhere and have now performed over 800 tribute shows.
So for those Fleetwood Mac fans who didn’t manage to see them back in the 70s and 80s, which are the two decades that the tribute band concentrates on, you can sing along to You Make Loving Fun and Black Magic Woman on Friday in Paphos, on Saturday in Limassol, on Sunday in Famagusta and then again in Paphos on Tuesday.
