fleetwood-mac-2013-tour-dates-stevie-nicks-gi.jpgFleetwood Mac is hitting the road again after a three-year absence from touring, kicking off a 34-city North American tour in Columbus, Ohio, on April 4.

The band hasn’t toured since 2009 and hasn’t released a new album since 2003’s “Say You Will,” but per USA Today, there may be some new songs in the setlist along with the band’s classics.

“There were some tracks John [McVie], Mick [Fleetwood] and I cut with Stevie [Nicks] in mind while she was on the road,” band member Lindsey Buckingham says. “It’s the most Fleetwood Mac-sounding stuff I’ve heard in a long time. We’ve been talking about releasing an EP, but I don’t know how these moving parts will fit together yet.”  

But Buckingham says the band certainly doesn’t need a new album to tour

“We’d be OK for one more round,” he says. “People do want to hear that body of work and be transported to a certain time. The older you get and the longer the band has been around, you come to terms with the fact that no one’s particularly interested in hearing anything too new. It’s about what you do with what you’ve got.”  

Nicks says, “I always think it’s good for Fleetwood Mac to be away for three years. Two years is like, well, ‘I just saw you.’ My feeling was, let 2013 be the year of Fleetwood Mac and make it an exciting event.”
