Christine McVie officially confirmed this week that she has rejoined Fleetwood Mac, the band she helped catapult to stardom more than 40 years ago, and the whole gang will soon embark on a 33-city North American tour.

McVie, 70, appeared with her bandmates — ex-husband John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, and Stevie Nicks — on the "Today" show Thursday and put an end to all the rumors about her return to the rock band.

"I think that can be said with a definite capital 'Yes,'" she told "Today's" Carson Daly.

McVie previously played keyboard and served as a key vocalist and songwriter for Fleetwood Mac for 28 years, producing such hits as "Don't Stop," "You Make Loving Fun," "Songbird," and "Everywhere."

Rumors started swirling last fall about a possible reunion after McVie performed a couple concerts with the band in London in September.

"I like being with the band, the whole idea of playing music with them. I miss them all," she told The Guardian in November. "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."

McVie quit the band in 1998.

"I think I was just music'd out," she told The Guardian of her decision to leave. "I suffered from some kind of delusion that I wanted to be an English country girl, a Sloane Ranger or something . . . and it took me 15 years to realize that it's not really what I wanted at all."

Fleetwood Mac's publicist, Liz Rosenberg, told the media in January that McVie had rejoined the band.

"She has indeed rejoined Fleetwood Mac," Rosenberg said in a statement at the time. "We are hoping to make an announcement about a possible tour for the full tilt Macsters some time in 2014."

Fleetwood Mac also announced a North American tour this week called "On With the Show." Kicking off in Minneapolis on Sept. 30, the band will perform 34 shows in 33 cities across the U.S. and Canada, CNN reported.

The group was forced to cancel the Australian and New Zealand legs of its world tour in October after revealing that guitarist John McVie was undergoing treatment for cancer.
