Christine McVie Reunites With Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac have confirmed that Christine McVie has rejoined the band and that there are plans for a tour in 2014.

The singer-songwriter teased fans last year when she joined her former bandmates on stage for one song during their performances at London's O2.

The 70-year-old wrote some of the band's biggest hits including Don't Stop and Say You Love Me and was a principle writer with Mick Fleetwood and Lindsey Buckingham on five hugely successful albums including Rumours and Tango in the Night.

She joined the group in 1970 after marrying bassist John McVie and left in 1998.

The band's publicist Liz Rosenberg told Billboard 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".

Fleetwood Mac made millions from their 45-date tour last year and soon after it ended McVie admitted that she would be "delighted" if she was asked to play with them again.

Bandmate 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?'"

Last weekend Mick Fleetwood reportedly told a crowd in Hawaii that McVie had rejoined the group.

Fleetwood Mac are hotly tipped to be named as Glastonbury's headline act at this summer's festival.
