It was 15 years ago this month that Christine McVie last performed live professionally in front of an audience when she appeared with her band Fleetwood Mac and accepted the "Outstanding Contribution To Music" award at the 1998 Brit Awards in London and closed out the show with "Go Your Own Way" and "Don't Stop". (The band later appeared on a German TV program and performed Silver Springs, but we won't count that as they were lip-syncing). That was the last time we saw Christine on stage!
So fast forward 15 years later, while on vacation visiting with Mick on Maui, Christine joins Mick and his Blues Band at Castle Theater at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center along with Rick Vito, Steven Tyler and Mark Johnstone. Over the last few days there has been some buzz that this was going to happen, but you never really know for sure it's going to happen until it happens, especially with anything Fleetwood Mac related.
I'm not sure what the set was, or what Christine played and sang, if it was just a few songs, one song or the full show... Obviously it was blues based.. But in any case it's so great to see her up there on stage... it's like the last 15 years have been wiped away.
Thanks to Suzanne Kayian and Lisa Homer for the pics!
