Fleetwood Mac have confirmed a new set of dates as they embark on an extensive world tour next year.

While billed as a global tour, the 34 dates released today are all in North America, running from early April to mid June. The band will begin rehearsals in February, Rolling Stone has reported.

Singer Stevie Nicks told the magazine: "It's the perfect time to go back out. 2013 is going to be the year of Fleetwood Mac."
