Fleetwood Mac Won't Tour Again
Mick Fleetwood blames Stevie Nicks for lack of reunionIn an interview with Playboy, Fleetwood says that Nicks had already scuppered one reunion tour due to her commitments to her latest solo album.
"I don't believe Fleetwood Mac will ever tour again, but I really hope we do," he said. "We have rehearsed it and prepared for it since 2010. We were supposed to tour in 2011, but we delayed it for a year to allow Stevie Nicks to support her solo record and for Lindsey Buckingham to do the same with his."
He added: "I've always been supportive of my bandmates doing solo albums, so long as we kept our band together... 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."
Fleetwood went on to say of Nicks' current situation: "I understand what she likes about her situation. Touring in support of her album, she is able to be her, without any degree of compromise. She doesn't have to worry about the other three of us asking her to do anything. She has become obsessed with her album in a very nice but inconvenient way."
The band last toured together in 2009.
