Fleetwood Mac had the wild energy of musical attack paired with the warm glow of together-again

TIME TRAVELING AND STEVIE NICKS HATS: FLEETWOOD MAC AT HP PAVILION, SAN JOSE (BY CLAIRE)

Stevie Nicks is spinning.

Stevie Nicks is twirling stage left, spinning and grinning, the billowy sleeves of her black velvet and chiffon dress flapping wildly (this dress is a dream come true, by the way. This dress is time travel and perfection and making me want to set my wardrobe on fire). Lindsey Buckingham is lean and frenetic, all black leather and shredding solos, and Mick Fleetwood’s got a Muppet grin and he’s banging on a gong, and if Stevie Nicks sings “Landslide”—at this point I’m practically shaking my friend Andrea—if Stevie Nicks sings “Landslide,” I am going to split in two.

A long sheath descends from the ceiling, Buckingham gives a primal rock god performance of “Big Love” (“Watch this,” the guy next to me says, pointing insistently at the screen showcasing an HD Buckingham. “Watch this, you’ll never forget it.”) And when it ends I think my surprised heart might leap out of my chest, but it freezes in mid air because the room gets quiet and Stevie Nicks sings that she’s been afraid of changing cause she built her life around the guy to her right, grinning and strumming.

Great recap of the San Jose show... Check out the rest at Charmcityjukebox.com
