After 16 years, Christine McVie has come out of retirement to rejoin her bandmates in Fleetwood Mac for a fall tour that includes a Nov. 20 performance at the Tacoma Dome. (Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. April 7.)
McVie, who retreated to the English countryside in the late ‘90s, will be back on stage with Mick Fleetwood, (ex-husband) John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. McVie’s return means the band can perform “Little Lies,” “You Make Loving Fun,” “Everywhere” and other songs that haven’t been performed in years.
In January, McVie revealed that she had rejoined the group. Last September, she performed with the band for two shows the London O2 Arena.
The “On With the Show” tour opens Sept. 30 in Minneapolis, Minn., and includes 34 shows in 33 cities. McVie has not toured with the band since “The Dance Tour” in 1998.
The reunion tour was announced in an interview with Carson Daly on NBC’s “Today” show Thursday morning. Asked why she stopped touring, McVie told Daly, “I had a fear of flying. I hadn’t flown for 15 years.”
