After 16 years of going their own way, Fleetwood Mac is having a reunion.

With bandmate Christine McVie back after a 16-year absence, Fleetwood Mac will embark on a 33-city North American tour in September with its most successful lineup, including Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, and Christine's ex-husband John McVie.

The "On With the Show" tour opens Sept. 30 in Minneapolis.

McVie hasn't been on the road with the group since 1998. Nicks thought McVie was joking last year when she expressed interest.

"I'm like, 'Well, you've convinced us over 16 years that you were never coming back," Nicks told The Associated Press. "You finally, actually convinced us. So, are you kidding?'"

Now that the 70-year-old McVie has returned, Nicks is reminding her of the physical demands.

"I said, 'Well, Chris, have you seen us in concert lately? Because you should see us, because it's very physical," Nicks told the AP. "It's almost three hours, and you kind of have to be an athlete. So, get a trainer.' And she did! She did, totally!"

Nicks, 65, was honored Tuesday with an icon award from music management group Broadcast Music Inc. She was recognized for her Fleetwood Mac contributions and for her solo career.

Nicks said that she and the band are working on new songs, and she hopes to release her solo album this fall, tentatively titled "24 Karat Gold," Billboard said. It includes songs she has written and performed over the years, but never included on albums.

"We went onto YouTube and we found all the songs that, somehow, were taken from my house or picked up or loaned out or whatever ... and we went to Nashville and we recorded 17 songs," Nicks told the AP. "So they're like all starting from like 1969 maybe? I call them my 24 karat gold songs."
