Christine McVie has rejoined Fleetwood Mac, according to Rolling Stone.

Drummer Mick Fleetwood reportedly told the audience Saturday at Uncle Willie K's BBQ Blues Fest in Maui, "This is the worst kept secret there is, but Christine McVie will be rejoining Fleetwood Mac."

According to Fleetwood Mac News, he made the announcement after Willie and Fleetwood played an acoustic version of McVie's "Rumours" track "Songbird." The band has yet to release the news formally.

Last year, McVie performed with the band for the first time in 15 years during two shows of the group's European tour. At the time, singer Stevie Nicks shrugged off the possibility of McVie's return. "I would say there's no more a chance of that happening than an asteroid hitting the earth," she said. "She is done."

Wrong.

McVie later told The Guardian, "If they were to ask me I would probably be very delighted ... but it hasn't happened so we'll have to wait and see." About the performance, she said "It was amazing, like I'd never left. I climbed back on there again and there they were, the same old faces on stage."
