GO YOUR OWN WAY, Based on Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie, Set to Tour Australia

Award-winning artist Catherine Alcorn will kick off her national tour of the critically acclaimed stage show Go Your Own Way based on the life of one of rock's most fiercely private and intriguing figures, Christine McVie, in January 2017 - which also marks the 40th Anniversary of their most famous album, RUMOURS.

Christine McVie was the girl who started out as a school teacher, picked up a bass guitar and began to sing the blues. Then she joined Fleetwood Mac and made rock history.

Commissioned by Kate Ceberano for the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Go Your Own Way is the story of great music and the tempestuous life of Christine McVie.

In a career that so far spans four decades, the enigmatic McVie is brought to life in this play-with-music by Alcorn who brings her own magic to some of the most memorable songs of the 20th century including Little Lies, Everywhere, Don't Stop and Songbird.

Featuring Dirty Dancing's Kirby Burgess (Baby) as Stevie Nicks, Go Your Own Way explores Christine's contrary attitude to global fame, ridiculous wealth, love and loss, personal privacy, songwriting.

Starring Catherine Alcorn
Written by Diana Simmonds
Directed by Jason Langley (Dusty)
Musically Directed by Isaac Hayward (The Rabbits)
Featuring Kirby Burgess (Baby in Dirty Dancing)
