Fleetwood Mac
After a 16-year absence, Christine McVie will be re-joining Fleetwood Mac bandmates Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks as they launch the On With The Show tour. The trek will kick off on September 30 in Minneapolis and the reunited band will perform 34 shows in 33 cities across North America. The tour is currently scheduled through December 20 in Tampa. Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Monday, April 7.

has not toured with Fleetwood Mac since 1998's The Dance Tour. She spent the past 16 years living a quiet life in the English countryside. McVie had taken a long break from music, but about two years ago, she began to feel the urge to return.

"I started to think, 'What am I doing? I really miss that camaraderie with those four people. I miss everything about it,'" she told Rolling Stone in a new interview. "I missed the music, to be able to create again. I couldn't imagine doing it with anyone besides Fleetwood Mac. I knew that they were my musical family... It was an epiphany because I suddenly knew I wanted to join the band again. Obviously, my muscle memory was a bit challenged, but I just thought, 'I got to go for it. I can't just sit here in the country rotting away. I have to do something, and something special.'"

She added that after a series of conference calls with Lindsey and Mick, "I called Stevie, spoke to John, and they obviously were saying, 'If she does rejoin, she has to commit and understand and remember how hard the work is. Can she physically do it?'. I just said with a big capital Y, 'Yes, I'm going to challenge myself and I want to do it more than anything in the world.' It's just such a joy. It's an affirmation of something so magical, there's just a chemistry between us that's phenomenal."
