It was what one could reasonably expect from a band at this stage in its career, a career that began well over 40 years ago.

Much of the banter centered around the to say the least well-documented drama between former lovers Buckingham and Nicks. We all know the story. The actual members of Fleetwood Mac were the minority on stage. A second guitarist, a keyboardist, two female backing vocalists, and a second drummer were curiously hidden behind Buckingham's wall of amplifiers and augmented the band as they lumbered through opener "Second Hand News," and on through "The Chain" and "Dreams.

And then something beautiful happened. Buckingham mentioned that they had been recording new material, some of which appears on their new EP, the awkwardly titled Extended Play and introduced one of those selections, the excellent "Sad Angel. I'm serious.
It's really good. The entire band, Mick Fleetwood especially, seemed to light up with the opportunity to play great new material. The band followed up with Nick's witchy crowd pleaser "Rhiannon," and though her voice has changed over the years, she still has "it.
Her youthful range has been replaced by a depth that can only come from a lifetime of being Stevie Nicks. After "Rhiannon," Nicks left the stage, leaving Buckingham to talk about the creative versus commercial challenge they faced after the blockbuster Rumours album, and the follow up, Tusk -- a sprawling and uneven double album that has become the stuff of legend, and a musicians' favorite see notes below.
Nicks returned to join the band for "Not That Funny," "Tusk," and "Sister of the Moon," which could've been "Rhiannon 2" and is a song that, on record, seemed underdeveloped, likely due to Buckingham's lack of interest in working closely with Nicks at that point in their relationship. They don't make that mistake live. It's a moody, spooky, epic live, one for which Nicks can play up the twirling White Witch persona to the hilt. The lovely "Sara" closed out the Tusk portion of the show, which for me, at least, was the highlight of the evening.
Buckingham was left alone on the stage for his frantic "Big Love," Nicks then returned for her classic reflective weeper "Landslide," then joined Buckingham for his sweet and sour "Never Going Back Again," another new one -- actually a just-recorded version of a pre-Mac Buckingham-Nicks demo called "Without You.
A small drum kit was set up for the Fleetwood for a mellow version of the fantastic "Gypsy" and the neurotic rave-up "Eyes of the World," both from the underrated Mirage LP. I'm not sure what made the band decide to include Nicks' solo hit "Stand Back" in the set; if it were up to me and it wasn't I would've picked "Edge of Seventeen" off Nicks' solo debut, Belladonna -- and if they're doing solo material, why not Buckinghams solo classic "Trouble," or the fantastic "Don't Let Me Down Again" from the pre-Mac Buckingham Nicks?
The familiar opening chords from "Go Your Own Way" sent the audience into near hysterics, and with that the band said their farewells. But wait But, ugh, drum solos. The obligatory "Don't Stop" followed, to the audiences delight, and with that, the band cleared the stage before, due to popular demand, returning once more for Stevie's tear-jerker "Silver Springs" and, finally, "Say Goodbye" from the mostly post-Christine McVie album Say You Will.
Looking over set lists and reviews from other stops on this tour reveals the same exact nightly set list and same nightly banter. Perhaps that's to be expected in this day and age, but don't we always want to believe that we are special and every show is unique?

All in all, I doubt there was anyone in the audience who left feeling slighted, other than the one holdout who thought there was a chance of them busting out Peter Green's "Oh, Well. The band was indeed the "Big Machine" that Lindsey frequently refers to them as, and with any machine that big, nothing was left to chance, which would explain the teleprompter in front of Stevie.
For me, one of the great joys of the show was seeing, and hearing, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood play together, as they have for almost 50 years now, and as seamlessly as ever. One cannot say enough about their chemistry and history. Oh, the places they've been! Set List 1. Second Hand News 2. The Chain 3. Dreams 4. Sad Angel 5. Rhiannon 6. Not That Funny 7.
