Fleetwood Mac will be honored as the 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year at the annual tribute held on January 26 at Radio City Music Hall in New York as the Grammys shift to New York City this coming January.
The band, who won two Grammys in their career, will be honored with a night of collaborative performances and tributes with a lineup to be announced later. Previous honorees include Lionel Richie, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Carole King and more.
“It’s a tremendous honor to be the first band to receive the MusiCares Person of the Year award,” said Mick Fleetwood on behalf of Fleetwood Mac. “Independently and together, we all set off on a journey to spend our lives as artists, songwriters, and musicians. None of us did it alone and there were plenty of helping hands along the way, so we applaud and celebrate MusiCares’ guiding principles of giving musicians a helping hand and a place to turn in times of need. We are very appreciative of this recognition.”
