Stevie Nicks To Reporters: Fleetwood Mac Will Tour in 2013 - Rehearsals Begin in January

Stevie Nicks prefers writing a song over meeting a handsome prince.

Quotes from the red carpet at last nights Song Writers Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in New York City.

"People ask what is your favorite thing to do in a night? Be in a fantastic studio with a great poem and a piano and a little tape recorder. That is my idea of a great time," Nicks said.

Associated Press

Bette Midler received the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award for her skill as a song interpreter, and her friend Stevie Nicks was on hand to perform in her honor.  “It’s fantastic, ’cause Bette and I have been friends for a long time,” Stevie told reporters on the red carpet, “And she chose me to sing one of her songs, and I chose ‘The Rose.’” 

Stevie added that she chose that song because of Midler’s movie of the same name. “I thought that [she] did such an amazing job when she did that movie,” said Stevie.

Stevie also told reporters that Fleetwood Mac will tour in 2013 and will begin rehearsals in January.

Such exciting news! I hope it will be a world tour. If not, I guess it's an excuse for an overseas holiday just to see Fleetwood Mac live.

ANOTHER tour??? ugh...do an album. It's been 10 years since SYW came out. Nobody wants to shell out another $150 to see FM tour with the same tired set list.

Speak for yourself. Tha Mac is getting older and any chance to see them perform is great!!

Joseph Gould said...

ANY excuse to see them is a great one!! Please come to Melbourne, Fleetwood Mac!!

I'm SO excited!

A new album would be good too - who knows what could happen after the tour..

RE: "ANOTHER tour??? ugh.." Don't come if you don't want to have fun!

Also, if you just save a little bit of money from every paycheck between now and next year, then the $150.00 won't be such a burden :) :) :)

I second everything cozy nester has written. Great times ahead! Put on your dancing shoes.

Wohooo I can't wait, hope they put on a new album for the tour, and film the tour for a dvd release!!!

I agree with the poster who's sort of exasperated with the band. Stevie and Lindsey both hit career highs with their respective solo albums last year, so they've both still very much "got it." Why can't they apply this energy and creativity to the group???? I absolutely loved the songs on IYD and SWS. I can't bear to hear RHIANNON and GO YOUR OWN WAY again for the 10 millionth time with less energy and in a lower key!!! Ugh! Don't get me wrong - as a lifelong fan, I love FM dearly. That's why I don't want them reduced to just another nostalgia act, albeit an A-list nostalgia act.

I'd pay to see them again but I won't be buying a ticket until I know there's gonna be a major change in the set list from the last two tours. And call Christine, again, godammit!

YAY, I can't wait. Any tour from FM is a good tour and a great time. If you don't want to shell out $150 for a ticket, then don't do it. Shell out $59 and "hear" a great show!! No matter which it's a great show! I have tickets for SN and Rod Stewart for Aug...again.. CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

Dont forget, there is always the FAREWELL TOUR to milk!

To be honest... I would much rather be hearing that a Buckingham Nicks Reunion is happening,,,, Put out the original on legal disk and a brand new CD to hype with a real B&N tour.....
I mean as much as I love the MAC and I DO love the Mac. another Greatest Hits Tour? I mean if there is no new Mac Music and no return of Christine McVie WHY? Well other then Mick needs the money??

dzzz said...

I loved the comment about tourm take 3 months off and come back with a CD?? 3 Months?? Lindsey Buckingham allow an album in less then 9??? But then stranger things have happened...
Besides, I have given up hope they would come to OR. At least Lindsey did,... and a wonderful show I hear..

Jared said...

I understand WHY they tour...Stevie and Lindsey command $500,000 a night. Not sure what Mick and John make - probably substantially less. I get that. Just add some new stuff to the set list PLEASE. Bring in "Seven Wonders," "Sisters of the Moon," and something more obscure. In tours past, "Sisters of the Moon" was just as crazy and mindblowing as "Go Your Own Way." PLUS, it would give Stevie a reason to dress as witchy as she could now. Picture it: Stevie in a long black floor length dress with a great old shawl we haven't seen in years.

Its too early to get super excited about this news. It could be just greatest hits, or it could include a three song mini set with Stevie and Lindsay doing Buckingham Nicks selections. we will have to wait and see. In the meantime, they are both touring this summer!

BRING ON THE MAC, ANY SONGS, ANY LINE UP, ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD! THE GYPSY'S THAT REMAIN WILL BE THERE!

When I said "three months off" I meant for VACATION! NOT for recording.

I'm not stupid!

I'm of mixed minds here. I have loved every Fleetwood Mac tour I've been to and I would love to see them one last time. Stevie might go on and do another solo record and tour, but I feel this would be Mac's last outing. That being said, I agree that the same setlists have got to go. Stevie proved on the IYD tour that audiences can and often do respond well to mostly new songs. Stevie and Lindsey just released solo records last year, so I'm sure there's a wealth of newer material that was recorded but not finished because the songs did not fit at the time. If there's not going to be a new album then the band really needs to energize ... Stop playing the same songs. Add in some stuff we haven't heard in YEARS, like "Sisters of the Moon," "Seven Wonders," "Tang In The Night," "Storms," and maybe, just maybe Christine McVie will join for a least one leg of the tour.

I was also thinking that perhaps the passing of Bob Welch spurred them to all get past their differences and decide to work together again.

The problem with the band at the moment is THIS: they surprised us with FLEETWOOD MAC, thrilled us with RUMOURS, stunned us with TUSK, dazzled us with TANGO, destroyed us witH THE DANCE - and brought it all home with SAY YOU WILL. After this inspirational track record, just a "greatest hits" tour feels uninspired, indeed....I want them to do something deeply creative, in keeping with the very best of the Fleetwood Mac tradition....
