Stevie Nicks has revealed that Fleetwood Mac will reform in 2013 for a live tour.

The singer, who was speaking on US news channel CBS, confirmed that the band are planning to reunite once she and bandmate Lindsey Buckingham have finished touring their respective solo projects.

Asked about the chances of a new Fleetwood Mac tour, Nicks replied that it will happen "next year, so far". She added: "It's the plan. Because that's what we do. I do my thing. And Lindsey (Buckingham) is out doing his thing now. Everybody's on board."

Nicks' statement marks a turnaround from the band situation outlined by drummer Mick Fleetwood earlier this year. Talking to Playboy in March, he said: "I don't believe Fleetwood Mac will ever tour again, but I really hope we do. We have rehearsed it and prepared for it since 2010. We were supposed to tour in 2011, but we delayed it for a year to allow Stevie Nicks to support her solo record and for Lindsey Buckingham to do the same with his."

Nicks also spoke about the suicide of former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Bob Welch, who died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest last month (June). "I can't even tell you what in the world would have pushed him to do something that crazy," she said.

Nicks is currently touring the US in support of her seventh solo album, 'In Your Dreams', which was released in May 2011. Fleetwood Mac last toured as a four-piece - Nicks, Buckingham, Fleetwood and bassist John McVie - in 2009. The fifth member of the band's classic 'Rumours'-era lineup, Christine McVie, retired from band duties in 1998.
