Christine McVie will rejoin Fleetwood Mac after retiring from the band 15 years ago.
The news was confirmed by founder Mick Fleetwood who made the announcement at a show in Hawaii on Friday. “This is the worst kept secret there is, but Christine McVie will be rejoining Fleetwood Mac,” Mick told the crowd at Uncle Willie K’s BBQ Blues Fest.
Mick had just performed Christine’s Songbird with Willie K and made the announcement at the end of the song, according to Fleetwoodmacnews.com.
Christine McVie retired from Fleetwood Mac in 1998 and moved back to the UK. Her last complete album with the band was 1995’s Time although she guested on two tracks for 2003’s Say You Will.
Her only solo record since leaving Fleetwood Mac was 2004’s In The Meantime.
Christine’s live appearances are rare. She performed with Mick Fleetwood in Hawaii in March, 2013. Speculation that she was keen to become active again started in September 2013 when she rehearsed with the band in Dublin and Amsterdam. She then performed Don’t Stop with the band in London.
