Fleetwood Mac is coming back -- this time intact.
The legendary band will return to Consol Energy Center on Oct. 14, marking the return of singer-pianist Christine McVie, who left the group in 1998 due to her fear of flying.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers made the reunion announcement this morning on "The Today Show."
Ticket for the 33-city On With The Show Tour, which begins Sept. 30 in Minneapolis, go on sale Monday, April 7 through the Live Nation mobile app and at www.livenation.com. American Express Card members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Monday, March 31 at 10 a.m. through Sunday, April 6 at 10 p.m.
McVie's long-awaited return follows her guest appearance with the band at London’s O2 Arena in September, when she took the stage for “Don’t Stop.”
“It was so comfortable being back onstage with them as if no time had passed, and then we all started talking and it feels like the time is right. I’m really happy,” she said in statement.
The band -- also featuring Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, and John McVie -- released a statement, saying, "As far as we’re concerned, she’s never really left. We are overjoyed to have Christine back on stage with us.”
McVie, the former wife of bassist John McVie, joined Fleetwood Mac in 1970 and sang lead on some of the band's biggest hits, including "Don't Stop," "You Make Loving Fun," "Say You Love Me" and "Over My Head."
