Fleetwood Mac have announced a 2013 world tour, with the kick-off on April 4th in Columbus, Ohio, with tickets going on sale on December 14th. Rehearsals for the band start on February 15th. Stevie Nicks told Rolling Stone, It’s the perfect time to go back out, 2013 is going to be the year of Fleetwood Mac.” The band plans on playing summer festivals in Europe, with an Australian trek in the works as well.

It will be a catalog-driven tour, with no new music by the band to be released before the tour. “We always have to play ‘Dreams,’ ‘Rhiannon,’ ‘Don’t Stop,’ ‘Tusk,’ ‘Big Love,’ ‘Landslide’ and all our most famous songs,” says Lindsey Buckingham. “When you’ve gone through all your must-do’s, that’s 75% of your potential setlist. I think with the other 25%, there are areas of our catalog that are more under-explored. Maybe we’ll play more songs from Tusk. I’d also like to see an extended middle portion of the show that’s just me and Stevie. This is just me talking from the top of my head. For now, I have no particular vision of what this tour is going to be.”

Stevie Nicks added, “We actually have two new Fleetwood Mac songs that I cut with Lindsey two weeks ago we might play,” says Nicks. “I had a really good time working with him for four days at his house. I got to hang out with his family and his kids, his grown up kids, and really connect with him again. We’re pretty proud of what we have done, and we’re looking at it through the eyes of wisdom now, instead of through the eyes of jealousy and resentment and anger.”
