The classic band start their UK tour later this month

Stevie Nicks has said that Christine McVie will definitely be joining Fleetwood Mac for a couple of dates on their forthcoming UK tour.

Former band member McVie, who retired from the music industry in 1998, will likely be appearing with the band on ‘Rumours’ track ‘Don’t Stop’, a song she wrote. Nicks told BBC Radio 4‘s Woman’s Hour earlier today (September 13): “She is going to come and do a song on the second two shows. I think it will probably be ‘Don’t Stop’. I don’t know, but she’s coming to Ireland to rehearse with us.” The full interview will be broadcast on Monday (September 16).

The second two shows of the tour take place at London’s O2 Arena on September 24 and 25. Earlier this month, it was revealed that McVie was open to performing live with Fleetwood Mac when they returned to Britain. Speaking on BBC Radio 2, host Johnnie Walker said he had been in contact with McVie and that she is still interested in the idea. “I did put the question: ‘Christine, is there any likelihood you might join Fleetwood Mac on the UK shows?'” said Walker. “She said, ‘If they ask me, I’d play.'”

Fleetwood Mac will play:

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