Stevie Nicks: Fleetwood Mac would love to headline 2013 Glastonbury Festival

Stevie Nicks says Fleetwood Mac would ‘love to’ headline the 2013 Glastonbury Festival as part of their world tour.

The band have announced more than 30 shows in the USA, which begin with a gig at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, on April 4.

The last of those concerts is in Detroit on Wednesday, June 12 – exactly a fortnight before the Glastonbury Festival returns to Worthy Farm.

Singer Nicks said she fell in love with Glasto after watching the 2011 festival on television following her own appearance at Hyde Park’s Hard Rock Calling.

“When we were there (in the UK) in 2011, I watched it,” Nicks told NME. “I watched Beyonce and it was pretty amazing!

“I had just got home from the Hyde Park thing, so I was just home from my own show and I turned on the TV and we had a pretty big screen in the hotel where we were, so I sat and watched like three hours, four hours of it, so would I love to do it? I’d Love to do it!”

Nicks also told NME that Fleetwood Mac hoped to announce “seven or eight” summer shows in the UK.

After its break in 2012, Glastonbury Festival returns from Wednesday, June 26, to Sunday, June 30. Tickets sold out in less than two hours when they went on sale in early October.

Later that month, visitors to This is Somerset voted for their dream 2013 Glastonbury Festival line-up and chose The Rolling Stones, Daft Punk and Fleetwood Mac.
