Stevie Nicks Preventing Fleetwood Mac Tour?
Fleetwood Mac fans around the world got their hopes up when Mick Fleetwood hinted at the possibility that the band would be embarking on a massive tour. Unfortunately, it’s starting to look as though that’s never going to happen and Fleetwood is not shy about the reason.
He explained: "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. 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.
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 [In Your Dreams] 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.
"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."
Hopefully the band, which has been known for its dramatic and turbulent relationships, will find a way to come together and give the fans what they’ve been waiting for.
