Review: Lindsey Buckingham Live in Boston

LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM REVS UP 'THE SMALL MACHINE'

With the aid of only his guitars and voice, Lindsey Buckingham turned in an impressive set at the Wilbur in Boston on Tuesday night.

When Lindsey Buckingham treated the half-full house at the Wilbur Theatre to "Go Insane," something remarkable happened. Though the Boston crowd was affectingly vocal on Tuesday night, it was impossible to overlook the empty rows on the floor and the unused third-floor balcony of the 1,200-capacity venue. But with his performance of his biggest solo hit (and frequent Fleetwood Mac live tune), a seismic shift of sympathy occurred, where instead of feeling badly for a performer who should be able to fill such a small hall, one could instead feel badly for every person who didn't buy a ticket for any of those unoccupied seats.


LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM RETURNS TO THE CALVIN 
Lindsey Buckingham has co-led one of the biggest-selling rock groups in history while letting his freak flag fly. He's had mega-success on his own terms, keeping his quirky soul intact, and the legendary vocalist/guitarist/songwriter/producer returns to the Calvin in Northampton, MA on Saturday at 8 p.m.
