YOU can Go Your Own Way or you can head straight to Rooty Hill RSL for an un­for­get­table night of blasts from the past.

The Fleet­wood Mac trib­ute band Run­ning in the Shad­ows has a twohour spec­ta­cle, com­plete with all the orig­i­nal hits.

Hop­ing to etch the leg­endary band in history are Gary and Ursula Stewart, the mas­ter­minds be­hind the trib­ute band.

Stewart, who is on keys, said the un­canny re­sem­blance be­tween Ursula and Ste­vie Nicks was the de­cid­ing fac­tor be­hind start­ing the group.

“When we were gig­ging around town, plenty of peo­ple used to tell us that Ursula sounded ex­actly like Ste­vie,” Stewart said.

With more than 15 years un­der their belts, the band have kept the mem­ory of Fleet­wood Mac alive.

“We’ve toured all around Aus­tralia in pubs, clubs and at fes­ti­vals, play­ing all the big hits from the band,” Stewart said.
