Romeo & Juliet

TSO favourite Stéphane Denève anchors his latest programme with his personal selection of the finest music from Prokofiev’s masterful Shakespearean ballet. Dynamic Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti, praised by the Times of London for giving her playing “a degree of heat, subtlety and quicksilver colours only achieved by the world’s best,” illuminates every facet of Shostakovich’s powerful Concerto No. 1. The concert opens with the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra performing side-by-side with the Orchestra in Tchaikovsky’s stirring Marche Slave.

Fleetwood Mac

It’s official! After a 16-year absence, Christine McVie will be re-joining Fleetwood Mac band mates Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks as they launch the On With The Show Tour. Exclusively promoted by Live Nation, the tour will kick off on Tuesday, Sept. 30 in Minneapolis, Minn. at the Target Center and the reunited band will perform 34 shows in 33 cities across North America. Christine has not toured with the band since 1998′s The Dance Tour.

The reunion of the multi-GRAMMY Award®-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and one of rock’s most beloved bands was announced during an interview from Los Angeles, Calif. with Carson Daly on NBC’s TODAY this morning. A full tour schedule follows this release.

Tickets go on sale beginning Monday, April 7 through the Live Nation mobile app and at www.livenation.com.

During Fleetwood Mac’s 2013 tour, the four members happily welcomed Christine back on the stage during their show at London’s O2 Arena, where she performed their classic “Don’t Stop” and received a wild ovation from the crowd. “It was so comfortable being back onstage with them as if no time had passed, and then we all started talking and it feels like the time is right. I’m really happy,” she commented. “As far as we’re concerned, she’s never really left. We are overjoyed to have Christine back on stage with us,” said the other members of Fleetwood Mac in a joint statement.
