No idea. I posted a clip on here of Stevie talking about it, if I can find it again I'll add the link. She basically said that Fleetwood Mac agreed to tour in 2013 so she and Lindsey would have 2012 to promote/tour their solo albums. Then Stevie decided at some point that she wasn't ready to give up on her solo album yet so she told them "sorry you guys but I'm not touring, I need more time for my album" and she said they were very upset and unhappy etc.
Then Mick had an interview in Playboy that was extremely dramatic where he was crying that his band is dead, they were supposed to tour but Stevie is "obsessed" with her album, they're probably never gonna tour again, etc etc very dramatic.
I don't know the little details of when she decided she wasn't gonna tour/if they had booked yet but that was the situation-- they agreed to tour, she later backed out, it was highly dramatic.
