On Saturday, Mick Fleetwood announced on stage at the 2nd Annual Uncle Willie K’s BBQ Bluesfest in Maui that keyboardist and singer-songwriter Christine McVie would be returning to Fleetwood Mac. McVie left the band in 1998 to pursue a quieter life in England. After appearing at two London shows with band last year, McVie realized that she deeply missed performing with her former bandmates. Rumors about McVie rejoining the band had circulated ever since the cameo appearances.
According to a fan who attend the show, Fleetwood said “This is the worst kept secret there is, but Christine McVie will be rejoining Fleetwood Mac!”
