Christine McVie to reunite with Fleetwood Mac on European tour

Stevie Nicks has revealed that Christine McVie will reunite with Fleetwood Mac for a pair of shows on their upcoming European tour.

"She is going to come and do a song on the second two shows,” Nicks told BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour. "I think it will probably be ‘Don't Stop’. I don't know, but she's coming to Ireland to rehearse with us."

Fleetwood Mac kick off their European dates in Dublin starting September 20 before playing three shows in London.

The news comes despite comments from Nicks last December, saying of a possible return by McVie, who left the band in 1998: "There's no more a chance of that happening than an asteroid hitting the Earth."

Nicks, however, went on to explain that her British former bandmate "doesn't want to fly" and "doesn't want to come back to America", which may explain why she has agreed to appear at a couple of UK shows but not their US dates earlier this year.

During the Woman's Hour interview, to be broadcast at 10:00 BST (09:00 GMT) on Monday, Nicks told presenter Jane Garvey: "Both of us in a man's world, from the very beginning, we made a pact that we would be a force of nature together. And we were. We had a lot of power when there were two of us. That wasn't really so noticeable to us because we just had it until she left. And then when she left I realized how much power we had when she was there, and how when she left she took 50% of the power with her… I felt powerless in many ways."
