It was time for Fleetwood Mac to get a new photo.

The one the 1970s pop-rock band has been using the past 16 years is missing a key player — keyboardist/vocalist Christine McVie, who hasn’t had much to do with the band since the late 1990s.

The new one, unveiled today to celebrate McVie's return to Fleetwood Mac, features her with her hand resting on the shoulder of ex-husband and Fleetwood Mac guitarist John McVie. For the first time since the band’s 1998 “The Dance Tour,” Christine McVie is hitting the road with Fleetwood Mac, the iconic 1970s rock band that boasts one of the best-selling albums of all times, 1977's "Rumours."

 The 33-city “On With The Show” trek kicks off Sept. 30 in Minneapolis and pulls into Phoenix US Airways Center on Dec. 10.

Tickets ($44.75 to $174.75) go on sale April 7 through Ticketmaster or on March 31 for American Express Card Members.

Fleetwood Mac — the McVies, with Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood and Phoenix native Stevie Nicks — hold a place in Tucson music history. About 67,000 people filled Arizona Stadium on Aug. 27, 1977, for a concert that to this day is considered the largest rock show in Tucson history. At the time, it also was the biggest rock show in the state’s history.
