Fleetwood Mac frontwoman Stevie Nicks has confirmed that Fleetwood Mac will be getting back together in 2013 and heading for the stage. The whole band is on board according to Nicks.
Nicks said in an interview,
“It’s the plan. Because that’s what we do. I do my thing. And Lindsey [Buckingham] is out doing his thing now.”
Fleetwood Mac’s last tour, 2009’s “Unleashed,” featured a set of the band’s greatest hits.
During the interview Nicks also spoke about the heartbreaking death of Fleetwood Mac’s guitarist Bob Welch. Last month Welch committed suicide last month. Nicks said she was completely shocked that Welch would do such a thing.
“I can’t even tell you what in the world would have pushed him to do something that crazy.”
