Do not call it a comeback and don't even think of it as a farewell tour.
After more than four decades making music and a 2010 tour, Fleetwood Mac will hit the road again next year. But it won't be its last tour, singer Stevie Nicks vowed, dismissing any notion that the band could be packing away their instruments in the near future.
"It's never going to be a final tour until we drop dead," Nicks said. "There's no reason for this to end as long as everyone is in good shape and takes care of themselves."
The 34-city tour with dates in the United States and Canada will begin on April 4 in Columbus, Ohio, and finish up on June 12 in Detroit.
The tour coincides with the 35th anniversary of the blockbuster 1977 album, 'Rumours', which landed the group four hit singles and sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. The album will be reissued with unreleased studio and live recordings, Fleetwood Mac said.
After frequent changes to the lineup since the band formed in London in 1967, the 2013 tour will feature Nicks, guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, and founding members Mick Fleetwood on drums and John McVie on bass.
Touring again is "a big deal", said Nicks, 64, who is known for her floor-length blonde hair and frilly outfits.
"I don't want a Fleetwood Mac tour every year or year and a half. That's why people get so excited. ...All of a sudden the world is on edge and that's what gets you out there.:
For Nicks, who recently finished a two-year solo tour promoting her 2011 album 'In Your Dreams', making music and being on the road is her life.
"If you never stop, you don't lose your energy," the 'Landslide' singer said of keeping pace with a demanding tour schedule when each band member is into their 60s. "Even when we stop, everybody is still doing a lot of stuff."
