Fleetwood Mac reunion confirmed by Stevie Nicks

Singer says the band are preparing to hit the road in 2013

Fleetwood Mac will reunite for a 2013 tour, according to Stevie Nicks. "[That's] the plan," she told CBS This Morning, though there is no sign that the group plans to record a new album.

The band's most recent tour was in 2009, following which both Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham have released new solo albums. In March, Mick Fleetwood complained that the band members' solo projects were getting in the way of a reunion: "Stevie … will not let her [solo] album go," he said. "I don't believe Fleetwood Mac will ever tour again, but I really hope we do."

Asked if the rest of Fleetwood Mac are "on board" for the 2013 tour, Nicks answered with confidence, "Oh yeah."

Several former members of Fleetwood Mac have died since the band's last tour. Bob Brunning, their original bassist, passed away in October 2011. Bob Weston, who played guitar on Penguin and Mystery to Me, died in January. And just last month, guitarist and songwriter Bob Welch took his own life. "I couldn't even imagine that anything could be so bad as to cause that," Nicks said on Thursday. "I just feel very, very bad that somebody could've been that miserable to do something that crazy."

Fleetwood Mac's most recent album was 2003's Say You Will.
