Guitarist confirms new Fleetwood Mac album and tour will be last

Fleetwood Mac's new album and upcoming tour will be their last.

The news has been confirmed by the band's guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, who revealed that the group will cease to make music together in 2015 or soon afterwards.

He said: "We're going to continue working on the new album, and the solo stuff will take a back seat for a year or two. A beautiful way to wrap up this last act."

The group's original keyboardist and songwriter Christine McVie returned to the fold in 2014 and Lindsey was delighted by her return.

He said: "She gave me a bunch of stuff to take home. I worked on it, came back, and she loved it. We went into the studio and came out with the best songs we've co-written in years.

"Christine really fills the gap of the polarity that might exist otherwise, and helps things breathe."

He does, however, admit to being initially sceptical about Christine's return.

Lindsey told PBS: "My initial reaction was, 'OK - we have to take this with baby steps.' The want to return doesn't mean you can repeat history; it doesn't mean all the tools, all the reference points are still there for it all to work."
