If you are one of the Fleetwood Mac fans who can't help but keep repeating lyrics of their hit singles, then you probably know the lyrics shared above are from their song "Little Lies," one of the four hits featured in the album "Tango in the Night" released in 1987.

Well, there is some good news for all the fans as the group plans to tour again in 2013. The 34-city tour in the United States and Canada commences in Columbus, Ohio, April 4 and winds up in Detroit June 12, Reuters has reported.

The group plans to re-release the album "Rumors" as the tour happens to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the 1977 blockbuster album that landed the group four hit singles and sold over 40 million copies worldwide.

Unreleased studio and live recordings are likely to accompany the album re-release. The tickets for the 2013 road tour go on sale Dec.14, the Huffington Post has reported.

Singer Stevie Nicks has told Reuters, "It's never going to be a final tour until we drop dead. There's no reason for this to end as long as everyone is in good shape and takes care of themselves."

Her announcement builds excitement into the whole tour as all members of the band formed in 1967 are in their 60s. The 2013 tour features singer Nicks, guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and founding members Mick Fleetwod on the drums and John McVie on the bass in the quadruple gang.

Though Nicks and Buckingham have their successful solo careers, the team appears anxious about the tour even during rehearsals as they try and select the songs to play.

"It's overwhelming in a good way, but it's still overwhelming," Nicks told Reuters, adding, "By the third day (of rehearsals) you start to calm down and get into your role. At first, everybody is nervous and not knowing what they'll do."

It appears that 22 songs will be played during the concert in which 11 will be hits.

And if you are wondering as to when their next album will be released as the last album "Say You Will" is almost a decade old, then there is good news on that front as well. Nicks and Buckingham have been writing songs recently, which they hope will feature in their next album.
