Stevie Nicks kills any chance of Fleetwood Mac reunion

Stevie Nicks nixed any possibility of a Fleetwood Mac reunion in a recent interview.

The 76-year-old singer told Mojo that, for her, the 2022 death of bandmate Christine McVie marked the end of the band responsible for mega-hits including “Dreams,” “Go Your Own Way,” and “Don’t Stop.”

“Without Christine, no can do,” Nicks said. “There is no chance of putting Fleetwood Mac back together in any way.”

McVie died of a stroke at age 79. She had also been diagnosed with metastatic cancer, which was listed as a secondary cause.

Since forming in 1967, Fleetwood Mac went through various lineups with founders Mick Fleetwood and John McVie at its core, along with Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie and Nicks sharing lead vocals. The McVies ended their eight-year marriage in 1976, but Christine McVie stayed with the band for another 20 years and later continued an on-again, off-again relationship with the group.

Nicks still performs live and will be in Michigan Tuesday, where fans are likely to hear Fleetwood Mac tunes like “Landside,” which is sometimes accompanied by a photo presentation the includes her late bandmate.

According to Nicks, though she and other Fleetwood Mac bandmates have played without Christine McVie, she’s focused on moving forward as a solo artist who’ll draw from her entire song catalog.

 

“I will keep the music of Fleetwood Mac alive, for as long as I can,” she told Mojo.

Nicks postponed a show in Pennsylvania over the weekend due to an unspecified “illness in the band,” according to a Hershey Stadium announcement shared by the singer on social media.

She told Mojo that even if Fleetwood Mac wanted to reunite, she’s not sure Buckingham would be up for the challenges of a tour after having heart surgery in 2019. Buckingham told SiriusXM in January he’d consider a reunion “in a heartbeat.”

The bandmates individually sold significant chunks of their publishing rights as a group and as solo acts between 2020 and 2024. Fleetwood Mac was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
