Fleetwood Mac set for reunion tour

Fleetwood Mac will embark on a reunion tour in 2012, it has been revealed.

Frontwoman Stevie Nicks has confirmed that the group, comprising of guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie, have reformed to mark the 35th anniversary of their iconic 1977 album Rumours.

"We go into rehearsals somewhere around the end of February. So if everything goes to plan, we should probably be out by end of April [or] May, I would think," she told ABC News Radio.

Insiders say singer Christine McVie will be not be joining the reunion.

Steve, 64, also revealed she is in talks about recording new music to coincide with the live dates.

"We don't really know yet 'cause we're not in the world of Fleetwood Mac yet. We're just still in talks about that," she explained.

There are rumours that the reunited group, who have been on a break since 2009, could headline the 2012 Glastonbury music festival.

Festival organiser Emily Eavis told NME.com: "I think Fleetwood Mac would be amazing to get. We haven't had any conversations with them yet but, you know, it is still early days.

"We're just talking to some headliners now. For us it's about getting the balance of heritage bands, legends and new bands - just keeping that balance," she added.
