Fleetwood Mac is back.

The group, armed with the upcoming Say You Will, easily its best studio album in 24 years, brings its tour to Sunrise's Office Depot Center June 7.

The lineup includes singer-guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, singer Stevie Nicks, drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie. Expect a 2 �-hour concert and some surprises. Since singer-keyboardist Christine McVie is gone, most of her songs will be retired. 'The songs we'll do of Chris' will be the ones we shared,'' Nicks says, suggesting Don't Stop, Tusk and You Make Loving Fun might make the set.

In addition to the new single, Peacekeeper, expect some older songs to make their first live appearance. ''I think we're going to do a version of Beautiful Child,'' Nicks says, referring to a 1979 ballad found on the Tusk LP. ``It's just the saddest song you have ever heard. It's working out, and I think it'll make the set. We're going back into our trunk of gazillions of songs and picking a few dark-horse Fleetwood Mac songs. We'll still do Rhiannon and Gold Dust Woman and Go Your Own Way and Monday Morning. The songs everyone will want to hear will be there.''

With some notable changes. ''One thing we can't do is open with The Chain again,'' Buckingham says, laughing.

Tickets for Fleetwood Mac are $126.50, $76.50 and $49.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday.
