Stevie Nicks has revealed today that Fleetwood Mac are reuniting to tour in 2013. Stevie appeared on US news channel CBS and confirmed that Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and herself will play their first shows since 2009.
"Next year, so far. It's the plan. Because that's what we do", she said. "I do my [solo] thing. And Lindsey is out doing his [solo] thing now. Everybody's on board."

The news comes just months after drummer Mick said he thought the band would never tour again, due to his bandmates' solo careers.
He said at the time: "I don't believe Fleetwood Mac will ever tour again, but I really hope we do. We have rehearsed it and prepared for it since 2010.
"I played drums on most of Stevie's album, the one she is still out there supporting and the one that is the reason that, for now, she refuses to do a Fleetwood Mac tour. It comes down to her."
Stevie also spoke about the recent suicide of the band's guitarist Bob Welch, telling of her shock and upset.
She said: "I couldn't even imagine that anything could be so bad as to cause that. And I just feel very, very bad that somebody could have been that miserable to do something that crazy.
"So I can't even tell you what in the world would have pushed him to do something that crazy."
