No Glastonbury for Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac star Mick Fleetwood has categorically ruled out an appearance at Glastonbury Festival - but said the band will tour again next year.

In an interview with Radio 2's Chris Evans, he said the group - loved for their hugely successful 1970s album Rumours, among others - would definitely not be appearing at the Somerset event in the summer.

Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis has already said in the past few days that he has not booked the band for next year.

Fleetwood said today: "One of the things I would like to clear up: we're not playing Glastonbury, and a lot of folks think that we are, so loud and clear that Fleetwood Mac - we love Glastonbury and all the surrounding history of such a lovely festival - but we're not playing it.

"A lot of people that I meet are totally buying tickets for what will be a great show in any case, without Fleetwood Mac. I know that they always have a great headliner, but it won't be us.

"So no bad faith for Glastonbury because it's an incredible festival, I just don't want people thinking we will be playing it, but we are coming next summer."

Speaking about future plans for the group, he said: "We've been obviously on tour in North America and I have had a phone call this morning that I can officially announce that Fleetwood Mac will be touring through May and June in 2015."
