Will Fleetwood Mac tour again?
Will Christine McVie reunite with Fleetwood Mac?
Two nights ago at a performance in Hawaii Fleetwood Mac founder and drummer Mick Fleetwood officially confirmed the hopeful rumors: “Christine McVie will be rejoining Fleetwood Mac.” (For those just not up on their classic rock history, Fleetwood Mac: Lindsey Buckingham (guitar and vocals), Stevie Nicks (vocals) John McVie (bass) and Fleetwood, of course, on drums.
At the recently reported Las Vegas New Year’s shows, both Buckingham and Nicks stated that the band would tour this year. In fact, they tentatively are planning to hit the road this summer. More importantly, they also confirmed that Christine McVie (keyboards and vocals) will be rejoining the group. McVie bailed on the band in 1998 but briefly performed with them again this past September in the UK setting of a siege of reunion rumors.
Last November McVie told the press she was interested in returning to the band and Nicks was quick to encourage her. McVie’s ex-husband, bassist John McVie has also bounced back from his bout with cancer well enough to agree to the tour as well. Hopefully, Fleetwood Mac will be back in full force by the time they take the stage this summer.
