Mick Fleetwood says Fleetwood Mac will tour the UK next summer, but rules out headlining Glastonbury
Fleetwood Mac will announce a new UK tour on Monday (November 10th), but drummer Mick Fleetwood has ruled out the band headlining next summer's Glastonbury Festival.
The band are in the midst of a huge US tour, their first with Christine McVie since 1997 and look set to announce a new batch of UK dates for next summer.
Tour promoter Live Nation confirmed the news on Twitter, revealing that a new batch of dates will be confirmed on Monday morning at 9am. See the tweet below:

Speaking on BBC Radio 2 this morning, Mick Fleetwood also confirmed the news of the tour, but definitely ruled out Glastonbury.
He said: "Fleetwood Mac will be touring through May and June in 2015, the full dossier will be announced on Monday. But we're not playing Glastonbury. A lot of folks think that we are, but I'd like to say, loud and clear, that we love Glastonbury and it's history, but we're not playing. I meet a lot of people who tell me they've bought tickets and you'll see a great headliner, but it won't be us."
Then asked if he would consider playing in the future, he added: "Never say never. This is Fleetwood Mac. We never thought Christine McVie would return to the band, but here she is."
Fleetwood Mac have begun work on a new studio album. The album will be the band's first since 2003's Say You Will, and their first with the iconic Rumours line-up that includes both guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and McVie since 1987's Tango In The Night.
