2014’s first big reunion is Fleetwood Mac’s: Christine McVie, a founding member of the group and the singer-songwriter behind many of the group’s hits, will tour with Fleetwood Mac starting in the fall. On the 2014 Academy of Country Music Awards red carpet on Sunday (April 6), Stevie Nicks got a chance to comment on her bandmate’s return.
“She had us all completely convinced she wouldn’t come back,” Nicks replied when asked about the reunion, adding that she told McVie: “‘It’s your band. I don’t really think you have to ask.'”
There was only one caveat that Nicks had for McVie: “Get a trainer,” she said, referring to the tough job of fronting a band on an international tour.
Apparently, McVie is up to the challenge. The band confirmed to Billboard in January that the singer would return to tour for the first time since 1998. The new tour is expected to begin in September 2014.
