Is one ever too old to rock and roll? Never, the 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones has declared to the world. The same holds true for Fleetwood Mac, who burst into popular musical consciousness with their album "Rumours," 35 long years ago. Mac's iconic lead singer Stevie Nicks, set to take to the world's stages once again has declared, "It's never going to be a final tour until we drop dead. There's no reason for this to end as long as everyone is in good shape and takes care of themselves."
"Personally, I think we feel better than before," Stevie Nicks said. "We're not doing drugs and stuff like that ... You don't know what you'll do when you're not doing this."
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Fleetwood Mac has been performing extant for four decades. The band will hit the road again next year, after their last world tour in 2010. 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.
Mac's 1977 album, "Rumours," landed the band four hit singles and sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. The album will be reissued with unreleased studio and live recordings just in time for the tour.
There have been frequent changes in the band lineup since they first began in 1967. The 2013 tour will feature Nicks, guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, and founding members Mick Fleetwood on drums and John McVie on bass.
The 64-year-old Nicks, known for her floor-length blonde hair and frilly outfits, says that touring is a big part of their continued success.
"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."
Nicks finished a two-year solo tour promoting her 2011 album "In Your Dreams," making music and being on the road is in her blood.
"If you never stop, you don't lose your energy," the "Landslide" the singer say. "Even when we stop, everybody is still doing a lot of stuff."
Fleetwood and McVie are both founding members of the band, and Buckingham and Nicks joined the group in 1974.
Singer and songwriter Christine McVie, who wrote the big hit "Don't Stop" that was on "Rumours," joined the band in the early 1970s after marrying John McVie, but retired from touring after the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. She still contributes on occasion to studio efforts.
Of the 22 songs Fleetwood Mac will play during a concert, 11 will be hits, such as "Dreams," "Don't Stop" and "Hold Me," Nicks said.
Fleetwood Mac's last studio album, "Say You Will," was released 10 years ago. Nicks says that she and Buckingham had spent time writing songs together recently.
"Personally, I think we feel better than before," Nicks said. "We're not doing drugs and stuff like that ... You don't know what you'll do when you're not doing this."
