Stevie Nicks on Fleetwood Mac tour: 'This is going to be very different'

Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks has promised that the legendary group won't just be going through the motions when they hit the road this year.

The band are set to embark on a world tour, kicking off with a 34-date US tour in April, but have assured fans that, unlike last time around, they'll be seeing a group enjoying themselves onstage.

Stevie Nicks told The Guardian: "This is going to be a very different tour. The audience is going to see a very different Fleetwood Mac up there – we talked about how we really need to appreciate what we have and who we are and how far we've come."

She continued: "I said to Lindsey: 'I wish your mom and dad were still alive – they'd be just like: 'Way to go, Lindsey Buckingham! Boy, damn we're glad you dropped out of swimming, we're so glad you stopped and went for rock'n'roll'."

However, everything is far from perfect for Fleetwood Mac and Nicks admits that she misses having Christine McVie – who quit the band in 1998 – around in the band.

She said: "We all did everything we could do to try and talk her out of it. But you look in someone's eyes and you can tell they're finished. As Taylor Swift would say: 'We are never ever getting back together ever!' That's what Chris was saying…But I'd beg, borrow and scrape together $5m and give it to her in cash if she would come back. That's how much I miss her."

Stevie Nicks recently told NME that she would "love to" headline Glastonbury when Fleetwood Mac come to the UK for their 2013 reunion tour.
