Looks like those stories going around last week about Christine McVie joining her old Fleetwood Mac bandmates onstage when they play Europe soon are true. BBC says that Stevie Nicks confirmed that McVie will join the band for two shows.
'CMT Crossroads' has facilitated a series of entertaining collaborations between rock and country artists, and for the show's latest trick, they've hooked Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks up with Lady Antebellum.
Christine McVie retired from Fleetwood Mac 15 years ago, and while she's occasionally attended the group's concerts, she's repeatedly refused her former bandmates' requests to join them for a performance. But maybe her resolve is finally weakening.
As the U.K. blues-rock boom of the late '60s escalated, Fleetwood Mac were in the thick of it with their second album, 'Mr. Wonderful,' which was released in August 1968. Having just put out their debut at the start of the year, the Mac were rolling full steam ahead.
It's sold a bajillion copies on its way to earning its richly deserved status as one of rock's most classic LPs, but Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours' has never been given the full-on orchestral treatment -- until now.
