Stevie Nicks has told Digital Spy that Fleetwood Mac are “thrilled” Christine McVie will rejoin the band for a special appearance in London.
McVie, who last performed with Fleetwood Mac in 1998, will rehearse with the band in Ireland this week. She is tipped to appear at two shows in the capital later this month.
Nicks told DS at the UK premiere of documentary Stevie Nicks: In Your Dreams that McVie had approached Fleetwood Mac about joining up with them again, explaining: “Well, she said she’d do it. She did not say she would do it on the last two tours.
“So, she offered and we were thrilled, and it’s great to have her back and to do a song. She’s been very, very missed, so even to have her back for a little while is going to be good.
“And it will be good to see her, I mean, we never see her, you know? We’re all so far away. I mean, London to California is far. So it’s really great that she’s decided to hang out with us for a little bit.”
McVie and Mick Fleetwood joined Nicks at the Curzon cinema in Mayfair on Monday night (September 16) for a screening of In Your Dreams, which was directed and produced by Nicks and Dave Stewart.
Nicks previously hinted that McVie may join up with the band for ‘Don’t Stop’.
Fleetwood Mac’s European tour starts in Dublin this Friday (September 20).
Stevie Nicks: In Your Dreams will be released on DVD in November. The 4CD box set Fleetwood Mac: 25 Years – The Chain is out now.
