FLEETWOOD MAC - Best Rock Show

The backstage drama in this 40-year-old band is enough to fill several books, and it already has (personally, I can't wait for the pull-no-punches Lindsey Buckingham autobiography). The back-and-forth between Buckingham and Stevie Nicks is why this band is making fans pay through the nose to see them play the hits one more time, but don't underestimate the power of the Mick Fleetwood-John McVie rhythm section. Still, the "retired" Christine McVie is much missed, and here's hoping they acknowledge founding guitarist Peter Green by resurrecting "Oh, Well" or some other '60s blues-rock gem.

Wednesday/Thursday - March 5/6 at the Allstate Arena, 6920 N. Mannheim Rd., Rosemont, IL

Tickets:$149.50, $79.50, $49.50;
Phone: 312-559-1212
