Stevie Nicks Extends Her Tour With Pretenders, Downplays New Fleetwood Mac Album

Music News

Stevie Nicks has just added a further 19-tour dates to her ongoing trek with the Pretenders, stretching the tour through next April. Nicks and the Pretenders will wrap up their 2016 shows on December 18th at L.A.’s Forum — before launching the newly added leg on February 23rd in Reno, Nevada at Reno Events Center and playing through April 5th, when the tour winds down at Manchester, New Hampshire’s SNHU Arena.

Although work on a new Fleetwood Mac album has started long ago with Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie taking charge of the project, Stevie Nicks has been the one hold out on entering the studio — a prospect, she told ABC News, that she isn’t sure she wants to undertake, explaining, “The only reason that I don’t really wanna do a record is because I think that, in a year and a half, we’ll probably go out and do another Fleetwood Mac tour, since Christine has come back. Do we want to go and close ourselves up in a studio for a year, (and) make a record that’s really good but that probably won’t sell, because records don’t really sell that much? And then we’ll have been stuffed together for a year in one room, and. . . when you come out of that room, we may not want to go on a tour!”

Nicks went on to say, “I think that we should choose the tour over the record. Because touring is much more fun than making a record when you don’t have any idea how that record’s gonna come out.”
Although Fleetwood Mac has been a mainstay on the road since 2003, the return of Christine McVie in 2014 has made all the difference to the fans and — according to Lindsey Buckingham — the band itself: “We kind of saw it coming — a little bit. For years, I was telling everybody else, ‘Y’know, she’ll never be in the band again, she’s gone, she’s gone.’ And I really believed that; that she burned all her bridges and she needed to get out of L.A. and needed to move on from that scene, y’know? And it just really organically played out in a way that seemed so appropriate, in terms of the timing of it and just the whole thing has got such a circular feel to it.”
