Fleetwood Mac Review: Stevie Nicks has, gratifyingly, lost none of her hippy charm, she’s all drippy scarves, butterfly gestures

Fleetwood Mac joined by Christine McVie 02 Arena, final night
by: festivals, food, over forties

One of my earliest music memories is Peter Green singing Need Your Love so Bad, and his composition Green Manalishi (with the two prong crown), which to my pre-teen brain sounded bewilderingly mystical. Strange to now see Fleetwood Mac, in its present form, live in 2013, over 30 years later.

Mick Fleetwood and John McVie command the audience’s attention as the band opens with Second Hand News. This position is swiftly usurped by flamboyant performers Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham.

I like the old way she dressed everything just blowing in the wind! Like the Gypsy that she was. I hope she brings back all the long draping dresses and flowing chiffon Black and glittering in the night. That's what made her what she is today! And her unusual haunting vocals. I don't care how old she gets Just keep on doing it Stevie because it's you! The image and sound we all love you for!
