Fleetwood Mac's two dates in the sold out O2 were among last year's hottest concert tickets in Ireland, proving that the band - who first began playing together in 1967 - still have what it takes to fill the largest arenas and now the band's recent resurgence looks set to continue after today's news that they are set to record a brand new album WITH former member Christine McVie.

McVie, who previously left Fleetwood Mac in 1998, confirmed via spokesperson that she was returning to the Fleetwood Mac line-up and that a new 2014 tour would commence shortly.

Mick Fleetwood commented to Fleetwoodmacnews.com that McVie has penned new Mac material, which they will take to the recording studio in March.

Christine McVie first joined Fleetwood Mac in 1970 after marrying the band's bassist, John McVie and became the group's main singer and songwriter, heavily involved in a litany of their classics like 'You Make Loving Fun', Say You Love Me' and 'Everywhere'.

No news yet on the tour dates but if and when they announce anything Irish, you'll hear it here first!
