Review: Fleetwood Mac Live in Atlanta - March 25, 2015

Fleetwood Mac bewitches at Atlanta encore performance
By Melissa Ruggieri

Not many bands can sell out Philips Arena in December and return three months later to another rapturous response.

Then again, not many bands can weather heartbreak, divorce, drug addiction, affairs and every other kind of kitchen sink upheaval and still stand in each other’s shadows – seemingly happily, too.

But that’s the beauty of Fleetwood Mac. Their dysfunction is to our benefit.

The original quintet – Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and the ageless Christine McVie – revisited Philips Wednesday night for an encore performance that didn’t quite match the magic of its late-2014 appearance (that show was my pick for the best of the year).

But Fleetwood Mac bringing its B+ game is still better than most live acts in peak form – and on its 69th show of the tour, no less.

Not much tinkering has been done with the set list other than nixing a couple of songs (personally, I’d take “Seven Wonders” over “Sisters of the Moon”). But those catching the “On with the Show” tour for the first time couldn’t have much to quibble about with the otherwise solid song selection.

Fleetwood Mac Rock Orlando With ‘On With The Show’ Tour

It’s only been six years since Fleetwood Mac last paid a visit to Orlando, but they were missing

something when they played the now demolished Amway Center in April of 2009. Original bandmate Christine McVie was absent, leaving the sole female presence for the show to fall on the capable shoulders of Stevie Nicks. And while that’s not a bad thing, particularly for the many fans of Nicks, it left a significant number of songs off the setlist.

All that has been remedied with the current On With The Show tour, which played Orlando’s Amway Center last night. All of the hits were there, from Christine’s taking the lead on “You Make Loving Fun” to the witchy ways of Stevie on “Rhiannon” and “Gold Dust Woman.”

While McVie’s voice seemed to have some difficulty, particularly in the upper registers, Nicks was in amazing voice, seemingly finally figuring out how to adeptly mask those upper notes which she may now be missing. But the real star of the show was guitarist, and former Nicks paramour Lindsey Buckingham. Buckingham is a true rock star, giving his all on every number where he took the lead. As drummer Mick Fleetwood noted at the end, Buckingham barely left the stage for the entire show which clocked in at just under three hours.

An amazing thing about attending concerts in this day and age are the number of people who obviously fancy themselves amateur photographers and videographers. With so many of them out there, and the shareability of their results so simple, it makes it even more fulfilling to just sit back, live in the moment, and enjoy the show to its fullest extent. Sooooo…here are some of the show’s best Amway Center moments as captured by local YouTubers.

The show opened with “The Chain,” one of the most iconic anthems from the Rumours album.

INTERVIEW Stevie Nicks finds a higher calling helping wounded warriors

U.S. Army Cpl. Vincent Mannion-Brodeur (Ret.) presents Stevie with the USO Achievement Award at the USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore's 33rd Annual Awards Dinner in Arlington, VA March 24th.
ARLINGTON, Va. (NewsChannel 8) – One of the most successful and recognizable singers in music history has found a higher calling.

Rock icon Stevie Nicks has devoted countless hours visiting and helping wounded warriors and their families heal—both physically and emotionally.

“I am more proud of this than Fleetwood Mac or any of the other things I’ve done,” she said.

Nicks, the Grammy-award winning singer and star of Fleetwood Mac, was in the Washington area Tuesday, receiving an award for her profound and passionate work with the USO.

“Doing this gives me something that the rest of my world does not give me and could not possibly give me,” she said.

Nicks hopes others can someday read the numerous stories of the soldiers she’s encountered, and her devotion to helping these veterans and their families is a feeling she doesn’t expect to fade any time soon.

“I have to always come back here,” she said.

Review: Fleetwood Mac Live in Miami, FL - March 21, 2015

By Hans Morgenstern

It’s been nearly 38 years since Fleetwood Mac appeared in Miami with Christine McVie, whose smooth vocals and strident keyboards were so essential to the sound of this legendary rock band.

That last Magic City show starring all five members of the group's classic lineup was at the long-gone Miami Stadium for megahit album Rumours. Now, all these decades later, the quintet is back together and still playing many songs off that 1977 record for its On With the Show tour.

So, needless to say, it was a historic reunion the other night at the American Airlines Arena in downtown Miami. And thankfully, for many latecomers, Fleetwood Mac hit the stage on Miami time, around 25 minutes past 8 p.m., though thousands were still scrambling to their seats after the band kicked off the show with “The Chain.”

On paper, the song  — which equally features the band’s trio of singers: McVie, Stevie Nicks, and guitarist Lindsey Buckingham — was a great choice. Though the voices of McVie and Buckingham have clearly been roughened by time, Nicks’ raspy vocals have only improved with age. But the most egregious problem with the opener came from the its steady, deliberate beat, through no fault of drummer Mick Fleetwood. It was potently played, but an annoying echo bounced down from the upper level of the arena following each lick of the drum kit.

Fleetwood Mac Offers a Smorgasbord of Nostalgia at Bridgestone Arena

If Fleetwood Mac wanted to phone in last night’s show at the Bridgestone Arena, they totally could have. The crowd — predictably mostly middle-aged, mostly white — was the kind of crowd that would dance to anything. Before the band even took the stage, folks around us grooved to the anonymous instrumental house music, a sure sign that these people are ready to boogie to whatever is put in front of them. But Fleetwood Mac obviously has no interest in just getting through. This is a band that has persevered through decades of adversity; this is not a band who takes shortcuts.

From opening number “The Chain,” Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie and, back after a 16-year absence, Christine McVie all flawlessly and seemingly effortlessly delivered the goods as though they were holding their proverbial middle fingers in the air and defying any onlooker to even contemplate uttering the phrase, “They still rock ... for a bunch of old folks.”

But it wasn’t just a collection of well-performed hits, played as though they were trapped in an unforgiving casino circuit driven by fans who can’t let go of the past. As a full band, Fleetwood Mac is incredible, yes, but they’re also such iconic musicians in their own right, and the remarkable thing about Wednesday night’s performance was that everyone had his or her own moment to shine, with obvious respect and support from their bandmates.
