Fleetwood Mac to Tour in 2013, Says Stevie Nicks
The members of Fleetwood Mac are all on board to tour in 2013, Stevie Nicks revealed on Thursday.
"It's the plan," Nicks told "CBS This Morning" of the band's first outing since 2009's "Unleashed" tour. "Because that's what we do. I do my thing. And Lindsey (Buckingham is) out doing his thing now."
The lineup on the last tour consisted of Nicks, Buckingham, bassist John McVie and drummer Mick Fleetwood. Singer/keyboardist Christine McVie officially left the band in 1998.
As was the case with "Unleashed," there is currently no sign of a new album to accompany the tour. The band's last release was 2003's "Say You Will," which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. Nicks is currently out promoting her latest solo effort, "In Your Dreams."
In October, drummer Mick Fleetwood struck a tone of frustration when discussing the waiting game for the band's two lead singers.
"In terms of aspiration, I'm always there for Fleetwood Mac and of course love the band and hope we work and stuff like that," he told Billboard. "But we thought we were going to go out this year and we ended up not doing that... I would say we're in a waiting game, and that's fine. We get used to doing that."
On CBS, Nicks spoke at length as to why she embarked on a solo career in the first place, back in 1981.
"I only did it because I needed a vehicle to do more songs," she explained. "Three songs every 2-3 years wasn't enough for me, because I write all the time. So, all these songs that were being written were being thrown into the song vault and never reaching people."
