Fleetwood Mac plan to tour next year

But Sheryl Crow not certain to join

Fleetwood Mac are set to make their live return next year, and may have some brand new material for audiences.

News of the return recently made headlines when Sheryl Crow announced she may be joining the band, although this is not set in stone.

“I think we were all a little surprised (Crow) was announcing that to the world with such certainty,” Buckingham told Billboard.com. “We have talked about the possibility of bringing another woman into the scene to kind of give Stevie a sort of foil and shake it up a little bit. (Crow) was certainly a name that has come up. We’ll have to see.”

Buckingham also said that he has plenty of new material for the outing, but he admits he is not interested in being the sole producer, saying: “Whatever happens we’ll all sit in a room and make something work as a group. A little more like we used to.”
