Mick Fleetwood has revealed plans for Fleetwood Mac to tour the UK in September or October 2013, after much speculation over the band's live plans.

The band were previously named as a possible performer at Glastonbury 2013, but after recently revealed American dates were confirmed for Glasto weekend, it appeared their appearance was unlikely.

Now, Mick Fleetwood has revealed plans for the band to perform in the UK later this year, in an interview with BBC 6Music.

"We're doing a big world tour that starts in April. We're coming here [the UK] in September, October and maybe a bit longer. We're doing a lot of work here so we are coming," he said.

Fleetwood also revealed he had been back in the studio with Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham, saying that if fans reacted well to their new music, they would consider a new album.

"We decided, myself and Lindsey [Buckingham], went into the studio and created a calling card for Stevie [Nicks] letting her know we wanted to make new music," he said. "We had the greatest time and we made some really good music. Then her mother died and it wasn't time for her to be singing. Just recently though she has sung on three of them and we've recorded one original song of hers.

"So, we're going to go crazy and there will be something out that we will play onstage and that might become part of a long term plan over the next year. Our wish is going to come true and we will finish an album. I hope there is a demand for it, after we throw two or three songs out on the internet, and we might make an album."

Fleetwood has recently revealed a rather unusual taste in music, saying he has become a fan of Justin Bieber after attending the Canadian star's concerts with his children.

"I like Justin Bieber, I've been to see him with my children. I'd say he's probably not going to fade away as much as some people think he might," said Fleetwood, quotes The Sun newspaper.

"He's a great performer, really savvy in terms of the way he approaches his audience. I thought he was really damn good."
