I am very disappointed that on a major concert that you can have a "SCHEDULING CONFLICTS". I have been a follower of Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac almost my entire life and was very much looking forward to this concert in Sunrise, FL at the BB&T Center on Sat. June 8th. I was up in CT and NY for the month of May, and I could of seen them up there. Now, I can't. I hope you reschedule and there will be another show down our way.Please keep me posted at: Wendy.Baransky@hotmail.com.Thank you!Wendy & Gene Baransky-DeMatteo
PLEASE could you turn up Stevie's microphone! As soon as Lindsey starts in on a song, she is completely drowned out! Hopefully by the time you get to Albany, NY it will be better for us Stevie fans.
You can't judge the sound at a concert from a clip on YouTube that was probably taken with a camera phone.
I know. The sound guys SUCK on this tour. The mixing on the Say You Will and Unleashed Tours was PERFECT... and also Stevie's Wiltern show. I hope they re-hire these guys and fire the clueless idiots they're using.
Stevie's voice is getting weaker by the day I thought she had a voice couch, I guess he's telling to not sing because her voice is so flat the songs don't even sound right anymore I am one of her biggest fans since 1975 and her voice has changed every time she released something through her whole career very sad.
^^^It is NOT Stevie's voice that is flat, it is the SOUND MIXING. As a professinal live and studio sound engineer for nearly 30 years, and I can tell you there's nothing wrong with Stevie's singing, or voice. The dull mix is what makes her voice sound dull and flat (EQ is way off), lacking brightness on the high end, too muffled in the lower and and mid-range.
Hire Ken Caillet and Richard Dashut!They know a little bit about how the mac should sound....just a little.....
Camera phone, she's 65, crap sound people. Wth do you expect? She still ROCKS!!!
#7 and #8, abso-freakin'-lutely!
To the gal who is disappointed of the scheduling conflict in FL. Let me tell you what real disappointment is. I'm glad I scored awesome seats but only paid $180 for them because otherwise it would have been a waste! To the sound guy, b.s., she was SO pitchy and off the whole night. She was TOTALLY on something and I think is what made her so bad. It was quite interesting to hear the same sad b.s. off tuned crap in this Arizona taping..that's what I got in Houston last night. But, Lindsey saved the show with his right on pitch and sound every time and great guitar playing. I bet Lindsey is just grinding his teeth during some of these songs, he such a perfectionist and she just sounds like a drunk that needs to go home. Stevie you are such a sweet person good person what happened?? Please shape up.
So yes just to reiterate how can it be the sound engineers fault if one person if 1 of 2 were off? Give me a break. I've been singing all my life I know a thing or two, she was OFF.
Haters gotta hate.Vegas sound was way off. They sounded great but it was way too loud.
Stevie sounds fine for a 65 year old lady with a big hole in her nose. What do you want her to sound like? 27 again, not going to happen, even with the best sound engineer in the world. She's up there limping around in her boots that you know are killing her feet, gotta give her credit in my book! What I would like to know is how does she look thin facing straight on but looks enourmous from the side? Is it that she is thin but the dress makes her look big or is she big trying to suck into that dress??? Anybody else notice that??
Anyone who was at the Boston show will tell you...Stevie and co were AWESOME! Her voice was great...she looked great....was the best fmac show I saw since 87...but then again...I was open to having a good time and enjoying myself...so sorry for u miserable Stevie fans...you must be VERY ugly...
They sounded great in Toronto. Better than 2009. I would agree that Stevie's mic wasn't loud enough on the 2009 tour. But they seemed to fix that issue for 2013.
Stevie sounds great....Lyndsey was the one who sounded screechy when I saw them...
Boston was amazing! I'm watching these clips and FM still rocks... And I hope they rock again on another tour!
I Love Stephanie Lynn, & FM!! Need Jim Devenney? #NeedRichie
There are only a few areas in most arenas where the sound is really good.Which is why I usually pass on most arena shows these days -- too spoiled by some of the smaller venues where I've been lucky enough to see some big bands.I'll only see FM if I'm in one of the front sections. It's not worth it to me to spend all that money for crappy sound, and feeling detached from the show. I have to be a part of the show and the only way for that to happen is if the sound is loud and clear.But -- I will say, watching this youtube of Gold Dust Woman makes me realize this tour is one to not miss. They really are playing beautifully and it doesn't feel like any of them are phoning it in. I think Stevie sounds fantastic. I love the sound of her voice now and I love that she's branching out with re-worked versions of so many songs.
Stevie does look "medicated" in the video of GDW, and sounds medicated as well. Perhaps, her knees, feet and or hips are not tolerating on the time onstage? I do not think she is at the top of her recent game. I am a fan and not a hater, but I am also honest and do not give her or anyone else a free pass just because they are legends.If anything, they need to be held to a higher standard than some cheesy tribute band. some of which sound better than this sorry to say!
to you haters, than dont go see them anymore save those good seats for me. I went to the boston show too, and I am from New england area. They are still on there game they sound great still. Fm see you in boston again next week can't wait!!!
No "medication" on this tour or at this show.She's "on" vitamin D, Calcium and good old strong coffee. As reported by someone I know who's working with the crew on this tour.That's it. Fleetwood Mac has never been this sober and I think the shows reflect that.This was one of the chill-inducing shows on the tour. And Stevie was at her most comfortable -- allowing herself to give in to the spirit of rock and roll.I think it first started happening at the Dave Grohl shows. I'm thrilled that she's been able to bring some of her unique energy to these shows.And if it makes for good gossip in the suburbs to call it "medicated" or "drugs" or "drunk" , then so be it. Whatever works for you...
I don't think she could be ""medicated" for this tour. Maybe cortisone for her knee but that would be it. What's wrong with you people!!
So sorry for the cancelled 6/8 show...cold feet Stevie???...4 what it's worth...:) Stitch
Well Stevie took a shot of tequila before onstage in 2009 and that many more shows than they're doing now...lots of tequila when you add it all up.these are miss Nicks own words about tequila and I'm certain you have heard her interviews, about how that was her own private party. As far as being medicated what difference does it make. You'll never know unless she tells it so why speculate. I'm also very tired of Buckingham's acoustic version of Big Love....would love to a band version.
I loved the show in Anaheim they sounded sooo great (except it was way too loud). Hope the sound engineers turn it down for LA. I almost had to leave with a migraine. Luckily I had some kleenex to put in my ears.
Love Fleetwood Mac, Stevie sounded great, Lindsay sounded great, enjoyed Mick's solo, John is terrific, wish Christine was there, but they sounded better than ever!!
I know this thread is some time ago but I saw them play last month. GDW was quite eerie, Stevie seems to go into another zone. After the number people near me were muttering was she under the influence of something? However, she soon snapped back and was totally present for the rest of the show. So I think it's part of the performance - this is part of the show where she lets herself be as dramatic as she wants. You know what the song is about and they've lived it amazingly still surviving. Vocally, Stevie seems afraid of overdoing it which is understandable. Her voice is a bit vulnerable, the show is nearly three hours and they have been doing so many shows, new ones added all the time. When I saw them though they had been rested for awhile but had a few warm ups the days before so I thought they sounded great.
