Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks has opened up about her break-up with fellow bandmate Lindsey Buckingham.

Speaking in an interview on Oprah's Master Class on Saturday (March 24) the singer opens up about breaking up with Buckingham, which famously happened when the group began work on their seminal 1977 album 'Rumours'. The album was recorded at California's now-defunct Sound City studios – and features in Dave Grohl's new documentary Sound City.

"The band was way more important than each separate person's problems," Nicks says in a video teaser for the interview, which you can watch below. "And we knew that. So we never, ever, with everything that happened to us, ever, let love affairs break Fleetwood Mac up. But Lindsey always blamed Fleetwood Mac for the loss of me. Had we not joined Fleetwood Mac we would've continued on with our music but we probably would've gotten married, and we probably would've had a child."

Fleetwood Mac are set to come to the UK as part of a forthcoming world tour. Speaking about UK tour dates, drummer Mick Fleetwood recently said: "We're doing a big world tour that starts in April. We're coming here [the UK] in September, October and maybe a bit longer. We're doing a lot of work here so we are coming." The drummer also revealed that there is a new Fleetwood Mac album in the pipeline and that new songs will be released online in the coming months.

The band were rumored to be making their debut appearance on the Pyramid Stage at this years' Glastonbury Festival, however a string of US dates announced over the same weekend makes this seem unlikely.

Fleetwood Mac will play:

Dublin 02 (September 20)
London O2 Arena (24, 25, 27)
Birmingham LG Arena (29)
Manchester Arena (October 1)
Glasgow The Hydro (3)
