FLEETWOOD MAC Paul Dainty's Rockarena (From the personal collection of John Courage, Fleetwood Mac's Tour Manager for more than a quarter of a Century, we have a framed Australian 'Thank You' notice from organiser Paul Dainty for over 100,000 fans turing out on the Weekend of November 11th 1977 to see Fleetwood Mac & Santana headline shows in Sydney & Melbourne. With a great Patrick Jones overhead shot of the crowd & inset photos of the bands performing, along with 'Thank You!' text. The source for this is unknown as to whether it is an Australian Music press posting or a trade magazine spread, but given the light evidence of a centre fold, one can only assume so. A lovely souvenir from the Antipodean leg of the 'Rumours' tour!)

Tracklisting / Additional Info:
This item comes direct from the personal archive of former tour manager, John Courage. Despite having connections with a UK national brewery of note, John decided that the Rock 'n' Roll lifestyle was more to his taste.

In September 1972, he was poached from being the road manager of Savoy Brown to become the tour manager of Fleetwood Mac, just before the release of the 'Penguin' album & subsequent tour.

Since that date until his retirement, he stuck with the Mac through thick & thin, seeing in the arrival of Lindsey Buckingham & Stevie Nicks to the band, creating a very new sound for the former Blues band.

We are all aware of the effect that the 'Fleetwood Mac', then the mega-hit multi-platinum release 'Rumours' had on the band. The tours went from halls to stadiums in a couple of short jet propelled years.
As the internal madness began to compete with the fan frenzy, John remained with the band through this incredible period, even though for one of his birthdays the band decorated his Hotel room with fifty chickens & bales of straw!
Throughout these visions of excess, the music continued to flow as freely as the parties, resulting in sellout tours the world over.

John found himself slowly acquiring a selection of items that were given to him by members of the band at various points over a distinguished career that lasted in excess of twenty five years.
These gradually took up more & more space until, finally, John decided that some of them must go. What you are looking at here is one of those items.

Its history is impeccable. Its provenance guaranteed.

From the personal collection of John Courage, a one-off collectable from the tour manager of one of the biggest groups of all time.
