When keyboardist/singer Christine McVie quit Fleetwood Mac in 1998, it seemed the band would never get back together. While the band returned last year for a tour, McVie is rejoining Fleetwood Mac for a world tour in September. They are also working on a new album.
The On With the Show tour will kick off in Minneapolis on Sept. 30 at the Target Center. The band will play 34 shows across North America in 33 cities, reports USA Today.
If you have an American Express card, you’re in luck as card members can buy tickets through Livenation’s app and new website starting on Monday at 10 a.m. through Sunday, April 6 at 10 p.m. before the general public has the opportunity.
"I had some deluded idea that I wanted to live the 'country lady' life," McVie told Rolling Stone. "But I went through a divorce and I felt isolated in the country. I grew quite ill and depressed."
McVie had a change of heart and realized rejoining Fleetwood Mac would give her life a great sense of joy.
With McVie rejoining the group, they can now perform hits such as "Little Lies," "You Make Loving Fun," "Everywhere" and various songs the band was unable to play for almost 20 years.
"Being back is really a time warp," said McVie. "The tour is going to be great fun. I feel like a pig in poo right now."
"She had us all seriously convinced that she would never come back," Steveie Nicks told Today.
The group toured last year without McVie, but it came to a halt when John McVie was diagnosed with cancer. He’s currently doing chemotherapy and his health is doing well enough for him to record his bass parts.
This month, the band began working on a slew of new songs, but they have no intention of releasing anything until after their world tour. A set list isn’t planned out just yet, but they all have a good idea of what they’ll be playing.
"Stevie and I both have songs we pretty much have to play. When you add in Christine's hits, you pretty much have a set, though that's not to say there won't be a few little surprises around the edges," Lindsey Buckingham said.
