Christine McVie to Rejoin Fleetwood Mac For Live Shows
Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie, who left the iconic band in 1998, is set to rejoin the group on stage for a pair of upcoming live concerts.
The group's Stevie Nicks told BBC Radio 4's "Woman's Hour" that McVie would sing one song at two of their shows. "She is going to come and do a song on the second two shows," Nicks said. "I think it will probably be 'Don't Stop.' I don't know, but she's coming to Ireland to rehearse with us." (Nicks did not say which shows McVie would appear. Fleetwood Mac's publicist has not immediately responded to an email asking for clarification.)
Fleetwood Mac's European tour starts on Sept. 20 in Dublin, with three shows scheduled for the O2 Arena in London (Sept. 24, 25 and 27).
McVie joined the band in 1970 after marrying the group's bassist, John McVie. She continued on with the group for the next 28 years as a principle songwriter, vocalist and keyboardist. She last sang on stage with Fleetwood Mac on Feb. 25, 1998, when the group performed on the Grammy Awards.
McVie wrote some of the act's biggest Billboard Hot 100 chart hits, including "Say You Love Me" (No. 11 peak, 1976), "Don't Stop" (No. 3, 1977), "You Make Loving Fun" (No. 9, 1977), "Hold Me" (No. 4, 1982), "Little Lies" (No. 4, 1987) and "Everywhere" (No. 14, 1988).
