Fleetwood Mac are set to tour the UK in September and October, although no live dates have yet been confirmed.
Mick Fleetwood confirmed that the band’s touring schedule would miss the summer festival season in the UK, putting those Glastonbury headline rumours to bed once and for all.
In an interview with BBC 6Music, drummer Fleetwood said the band would be playing to their British fans later in the year, as an extension of their summer dates in the US:
“We’re doing a big world tour that starts in April. We’re coming here [the UK] in September, October and maybe a bit longer. We’re doing a lot of work here so we are coming.”
The band, who broke out of the British blues scene of the 1960s before conquering the world in the 1970s with albums like Rumours, have also been back in the studio.
Fleetwood said that no decision has yet been taken on whether an album will be forthcoming:
“We decided, myself and Lindsey [Buckingham], went into the studio and created a calling card for Stevie [Nicks] letting her know we wanted to make new music. We had the greatest time and we made some really good music. Then her mother died and it wasn’t time for her to be singing. Just recently though she has sung on three of them and we’ve recorded one original song of hers. So, we’re going to go crazy and there will be something out that we will play onstage and that might become part of a long term plan over the next year. Our wish is going to come true and we will finish an album. I hope there is a demand for it, after we throw two or three songs out on the internet, and we might make an album.”
