todayOctober 2, 2014


Christine McVieChristine McVie has permanently rejoined Fleetwood Mac back on the road and a whole lot of her songs and now back in the set.
Christine McVie rejoined the band for the first time since November 30, 1997 at the end of the tour in support of “The Dance.” She had returned to England to be near to her family and had not participated in any musical activity, except for the recording of a solo album in 2004, since that time.
In 2013, she guested for a song with the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band during an appearance in Maui, Hawaii, her first time on-stage in over fifteen years. Last September, she joined Fleetwood Mac on stage for a show in London to perform Don’t Stop.
That retirement came to an end on Tuesday night at the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN as Fleetwood Mac opened their On With the Show Tour. Back into the band’s setlist were four classic songs that they hadn’t performed live in the entire time that McVie was gone, You Make Loving Fun, Everywhere, Over My Head and Songbird.
The set included nine of the eleven songs on Rumours (missing were I Don’t Want to Know and Oh Daddy) and six of eleven from 1975’s Fleetwood Mac.
