Fleetwood Mac have confirmed former member Christine McVie has rejoined the band.

A spokesperson for the band announced McVie, who originally left Fleetwood Mac in 1998, was returning to the fold and that a 2014 tour featuring the reunited line-up would be announced soon. The statemen said: "Christine McVie has indeed re-joined Fleetwood Mac and we are hoping to make an announcement about a possible tour for the full tilt Macsters some time in 2014."

McVie joined the band in 1970 after marrying the group's bassist, John McVie. She continued on with the group for the next 28 years as main songwriter, vocalist and keyboard player. She's responsible for some of the band's biggest hits, including 'Say You Love Me', 'Don't Stop', 'You Make Loving Fun', 'Little Lies' and 'Everywhere'.

Rumours surfaced last year that McVie was contemplating rejoining Fleetwood Mac, and did appear on stage when they played London's O2 last September to perform 'Don't Stop'. In an interview with The Guardian after the concerts last year, McVie said she would be "delighted" if the band were to ask her to perform with them again, while Stevie Nicks told Billboard: "If Chris wants to come back to the band, I said to her, 'It's your band. I don't really think you have to ask. Because it's your band. McVie. Fleetwood Mac-vie? So, it all depends, Chris, on you. How you feel. Do you want to take this on again?'"

Performing in Maui recently, where he has lived for some time, drummer Mick Fleetwood told a crowd that McVie had indeed rejoined the group. It is now hoped, with bass player John McVie recovered after undergoing treatment for cancer, that the reunited line-up will write and record a new album, the first featuring the aforementioned four members and guitarist Lindsey Buckingham since 1987's 'Tango In The Night'.
