Stevie Nicks: Fleetwood Mac Will Go on Tour in "April or May"; New Music May Be Coming

Back in June, Stevie Nicks confirmed that she would return to Fleetwood Mac in 2013, and the group would be hitting the road.  Now, she's offered a timetable for that hotly-anticipated event.

"We go into rehearsals somewhere around the end of February," she tells ABC News Radio.  "So...if everything goes to plan, we should probably be out [on the road] by end of April [or] May, I would think."

Not only that, but Stevie says the Mac may record some new songs as well.

"Well, actually, maybe like two songs, maybe four, who knows?" she says.  "We don't really know yet 'cause we're not in the world of Fleetwood Mac yet."  But, she reveals that Lindsey Buckingham "has a song," and adds, "I have a song that didn't make the Buckingham-Nicks album that I really love.  So, I'm gonna suggest that."

The Buckingham-Nicks album Stevie is referring to is a record that she and Lindsey put out in 1973 as a duo, before they joined Fleetwood Mac.  To date, it has not been released on CD, so it's pretty rare.

But either way, Stevie says, nothing's set in stone about Fleetwood Mac's recording plans.  "We're just still in talks about that," she says.

Reading this, Stevie's actual words makes me feel better about the whole 2013 Fleetwood Mac tour. An earlier article said that it may be the end of the road for Fleetwood Mac - if there are new songs that's highly unlikely!

Could it be "Watchdevil" or "Without You", both songs that were demos of Stevie's from the Buckingham Nicks era? I hope they do record a few songs for a new greatest hits CD.

And I find it sad all the comments from people who would rather Stevie not go on with Fleetwood Mac and only be a solo artist. First off: she worked so hard for her whole career to have both and we are the ones who benefit from it. Secondly, without the Mac we would probably never hear Stevie sing "Sara", "Gypsy", "Silver Springs", "The Chain", much less get to hear "Go Your Own Way", "World Turning", "Tusk", "Don't Stop" and all the rest. And I love seeing the Mac live.

I agree... Stevie herself has said that Fleetwood Mac built her house and solo career, she'd never give it up.

I hope they release a new album. Lindsey has started making new songs with Mick & John, Christine has unfinished songs she told Ken Callait she'd like the rest of the band to finish and Stevie wants to remake a Buckingham Nicks song.... Do it guys!!!!

Sometimes you wish they weren't so incredibly meticulous in the studio so we'd have a full album to go along with the tour, but I'll take any new songs they put out. This is great news.
