VAIL – To celebrate one of the most captivating, Grammy Award-winning pop albums of all time, Classic Albums Live will present Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” in its entirety, live on the Vilar Performing Arts Center (VPAC) stage Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.

Classic Albums Live takes fan favorite rock albums and recreates them on stage – note for note, cut for cut. Founded in 2003 by Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live has become the ultimate destination for music lovers wanting to hear classic albums performed live without all the gimmickry and cheesy impersonations.

“We just want people to be sent back to that time when they were in their basements with the album open in front of them spinnin’ on a turntable, and we just want to trigger that memory – that whole feeling,” said Martin.

Often considered Fleetwood Mac’s best release, Rumours, is the 11th studio album by the British-American rock band. Released in 1977, the record peaked at the top of both the main United States Billboard chart and the United Kingdom Albums Chart.

The record produced four hit singles for the band — “You Can Go Your Own Way,” “Don’t Stop,” “You Make Loving Fun” and “Dreams”. It was chosen as the 25th greatest album of all time by the editors of Rolling Stone Magazine.

Classic Albums Live will perform the Rumours album in its entirety, at the Vilar Center tonight, followed by set of Fleetwood Mac’s greatest hits including “Rhiannon,” “Little Lies,” “Landslide,” “Tusk,” “Oh Well” (from the Peter Green era) and many more.
