Uber, driving, walking — whatever the mode of transportation, you can go your own way to Fleetwood Mac’s Nov. 23 concert at Golden 1 Center.

The British-American soft-rock band announced plans this week to stop in Sacramento at 8 p.m. Nov. 23 concert as part of a 52-date, six-month tour beginning in October.

Fleetwood Mac will also play at SAP Center in San Jose two days before the Sacramento show and Oracle Arena in Oakland on Nov. 25.

The band parted ways with longtime lead guitarist Lindsey Buckingham in late January when he wouldn’t sign off on a tour they had been planning for the last 18 months, frontman Mick Fleetwood told CBS on Wednesday.

Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood, and John and Christine McVie still remain. Buckingham’s guitar riffs will be played by Mike Campbell, formerly of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and Crowded House’s Neil Finn.

Fleetwood Mac rattled off nine Top 10 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the 1970s and 1980s, and has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide. The band popped back into the spotlight last month when a Twitter video of Alcorn State University’s dance squad grooving to the hit song "Dreams" garnered more than 7 million views.

Tickets for the Golden 1 Center show go on sale at 10 a.m. May 4, with presale options available as early as April 30 on Ticketmaster. Prices range from $66 to $296, plus fees.
