Videos & Setlist: Lindsey Buckingham - The Wiltern May 4, 2012


Three most amazing things happened at The Wiltern last night during Lindsey Buckinghams approach to a stripped down live show... First he came out without wearing his customary leather jacket looking pretty crisp in a black blazer... 

Second, he played the beautiful Buckingham Nicks instrumental tune "Stephanie" from the 1973 Buckingham Nicks album!! As far as I'm concerned, this would be worth the price of admission alone to hear this song live!!  Could this be the lead up for bigger things to come for Buckingham Nicks?  2013 will be the albums 40th Anniversary, if you can believe that... Might be the perfect time to consider doing something with a re-release.  There were rumblings that he played the song opening night at The Belly Up but I couldn't find a reliable source to confirm it or video proof... 

Third, right after "Stephanie" Lindsey played a new song, I think its called "Poor Little Raven" called "Dancing" he also played at The Belly Up May 3rd.  It's apparently a song that's been floating around awhile, but just never recorded.

From what I've read, it sounds like it was an incredible night of music... Lindsey's managing to pull off these Solo Acoustic gigs really well, his first attempt at going it alone - something he's said he's wanted to try for some time. They aren't as acoustic as I thought they were going to be, but for the most part they are. Lindsey also brought along his family and dedicated Not To Late to his 3 children.

Lindsey is still so handsome, and he looks great in this suit. Thank goodness he has changed, I was kind of tired of the jeans and black leather jacket.
