HEADLINE: Return of the Mac
BYLINE: Chris Wood
FLEETWOOD Mac have reformed and are back with a vengeance boasting a new album and an upcoming uk tour.
After "accidentally" getting back together following a Lindsay Buckingham solo album the band have released Say You Will.
They hadn't been in the studio since Tango In The Night in 1987 and getting together again and working on new material did not appeal to keyboard player Christine McVie who decided not to be involved in the come-back.
Singer Stevie Nicks said: "When Christine made it clear she wasn't coming back I knew I'd miss her both as a friend and a collaborator but it's been my experience that change creates opportunities. Someone leaves and suddenly something great has a chance to happen."
After writing an abundance of material the band managed to cut it down to 18 tracks for the new album.
Stevie Nicks gems range from Smile At You and Goodbye Baby both written in 1976 to her quartet of new originals Destiny Rules Silver Girl and title track Say You Will.
Fleetwood Mac are playing the Manchester Arena on December 4. For tickets call 0870 190 8000.
