Christine McVie has rejoined Fleetwood Mac, the band she helped catapult to stardom more than four decades ago, as tour rumors swirl.

McVie, 70, is back in the lineup after a 15-year hiatus, Billboard reported this week. She previously played keyboard and served as a key vocalist and songwriter for 28 years, producing such hits as "Don't Stop," "You Make Loving Fun," "Songbird," and "Everywhere."

A spokesperson for the band confirmed Tuesday that McVie "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."

Rumors started swirling last fall about a possible reunion between McVie and Fleetwood Mac after she performed at a couple concerts with members Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, and ex-husband John McVie 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."

Though she up and left years ago, there doesn't appear to be any bad blood between any of the band members. Stevie Nicks told Billboard last year that McVie coming back wouldn’t be a problem.

"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?'"

Fleetwood Mac canceled the Australian and New Zealand legs of its world tour in October after revealing that guitarist John McVie would be undergoing treatment for cancer.
