Christine McVie Says She's Up for Performing with Fleetwood Mac When They Play London This Fall

Michael Putland/Getty ImagesFleetwood Mac is back out on the road again, but fans of the group know that the current lineup is missing one prominent member, Christine McVie.  The 69-year-old singer/pianist, who wrote such classic hits as "Over My Head," "Say You Love Me," "You Make Loving Fun" and "Don't Stop," retired from the band in 1998 and has resisted any attempt to bring her back into the fold.

However, in a new interview with Metro.co.uk, Christine reveals that she'd now consider reuniting with her old group, albeit briefly, when Fleetwood Mac visits the U.K. in the early fall.

"If they wanted me to, I might pop back on stage when they're in London," says McVie, "just to do a little duet or something like that."  Fleetwood Mac is scheduled to perform at London's O2 Arena on September 24, 25 and 27.

Back in January, Stevie Nicks talked to U.K. newspaper The Guardian about how much she missed having Christine in the band.

"I'd beg, borrow and scrape together $5 million and give it to her in cash if she would come back," declared Nicks.  "That's how much I miss her.  I miss her like flowers need the rain."

Stevie also noted that she doubted McVie would ever rejoin Fleetwood Mac on a permanent basis.

"We all did everything we could do to try and talk her out of [retiring from the group]," she told The Guardian, "but you look in someone's eyes and you can tell they're finished.  It's like when somebody breaks up with you and says, 'We're done.'"

In February, McVie did make her first onstage appearance since 1998 when she joined Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood's blues band at a special show on the Hawaiian island of Maui.
