While the music world waits for the announcement of Fleetwood Mac’s world tour, Mick Fleetwood is living large at his home in Hawaii. The other night (March 4), he performed at his club, Fleetwood’s on Front Street in Lahaina in Maui, Hawaii.

While the audience was dining on parmesan crusted snapper and spicy lilikoi margeritas, the drummer was leading his side band in a performance.

In between songs, Fleetwood brought longtime AC/DC lead vocalist Brian Johnson onto the stage.

Since his abrupt departure from AC/DC, the classic rock singer has been an occasional surprise guest at concerts. On May 14, 2017, both he and Robert Plant sang with Paul Rodgers during the latter’s May 14, 2017 concert. And on August 27, 2017, he sang “Back in Black” during Muse’s set at the Reading Festival.

“It’s a big honor for me to be on stage with Mr. Fleetwood,” said Johnson, before he complimented the group’s female singer. “You’ve got some lungs on you, lass!”

“I’ve got no idea why I’m here. Me and Mick are both of the same vintage, born in 1947,” he added, laughing.

As a full band, Fleetwood Mac performed one concert in 2016 and just two in 2017, at the Classic West and Classic East stadium shows.

Fleetwood confirmed last Nov. 3 the band’s not-so-secret tour plans, when he talked to U.K. radio station Planet Rock about a “massive trek around the planet” that’ll commence in “late summer.” The co-founder’s comments updated Christine McVie’s statements last spring when she told a British reporter on June 14 that the full band will begin rehearsals in March for a global tour that will launch next June. She reiterated that on a June 16 appearance on BBC Breakfast.

It was expected that they would use the platform they received as the 2018 MusiCares® Person of the Year in New York on Jan. 26, but the event came and went without an announcement.
