The rumors are true.

Vocalist and keyboardist Christine McVie is back with Fleetwood Mac.

In a statement released to Billboard by the band's publicist, the 70-year-old artist "has indeed re-joined Fleetwood Mac and we are hoping to make an announcement about a possible tour for the full tilt Macsters some time in 2014."

McVie, who cowrote some of Fleetwood Mac's biggest hits including "Don't Stop," "Little Lies" and "Say You Love Me," quit the group back in 1998 to lead a quiet life in the English countryside.

But she stirred rumors of a musical comeback when she joined Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood, Lindsey Buckingham and former husband John McVie onstage last September at two of the Mac's shows at London's O2 Arena to sing "Don't Stop."

Soon after, McVie expressed her interest in rejoining the group, telling the Guardian, "I like being with the band, the whole idea of playing music with them. I miss them all. If they were to ask me [to return] I would probably be very delighted...but it hasn't happened so we'll have to wait and see."

Later, Nicks told Billboard, "If Chris wants to come back to the band, I said to her, 'It's your band. I don't really think you have to ask. Because it's your band. McVie. Fleetwood Mac-vie? So, it all depends, Chris, on you. How you feel. Do you want to take this on again?'"

Clearly, the answer is yes.
