Fleetwood Mac Likely to Never Tour Again

Fleetwood Mac's Mick Fleetwood told Playboy that touring again doesn't seem like an option for the Mac. Why? Well, people are busy with other endeavors where they get to be their own boss.
The drummer said that it was unlikely that the group would ever reunite to record new material or hit the road for an extended period of time because of singer Stevie Nicks is focused on her solo career which he "gets."
"I don't believe Fleetwood Mac will ever tour again, but I really hope we do," he said. "We have rehearsed it and prepared for it since 2010. We were supposed to tour in 2011, but we delayed it for a year to allow Stevie Nicks to support her solo record and for Lindsey Buckingham to do the same with his."
Even so, there are no hard feelings amongst the members over their solo sojourns. Fleetwood said, "I've always been supportive of my bandmates doing solo albums, so long as we kept our band together… I played drums on most of Stevie's album, the one she is still out there supporting and the one that is the reason that, for now, she refuses to do a Fleetwood Mac tour. It comes down to her."
He also "gets" why Nicks wants to remain on her current path, saying, "I understand what she likes about her situation. Touring in support of her album, she is able to be her, without any degree of compromise. She doesn't have to worry about the other three of us asking her to do anything. She has become obsessed with her album."
