REVIEW: An evening of perfect songs with Fleetwood Mac Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy

By Sylvain Siclier

(google translation)
As recalled at one time the singer and guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, the story of Fleetwood Mac has consistently been full of ups and downs. For ten years, it is rather high, which dominates with three world tours in large rooms.

That of 2003-2004, with nearly one hundred forty concerts found himself in the twenty-five while generating the most revenue. The 2009 not far from aligned ninety dates, almost as much as the course in 2013, which began on April 4 at Columbus (Ohio) and the expected time until December 7 in Auckland, New Zealand .

In 2009, Fleetwood Mac had his Parisian stage at the Zenith. This time it is the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy, the capacity of more than double when the pop-rock band played Friday, Oct. 11. From the documents filmed on phones that run on the Internet, the show does not vary from one night to another.

With twenty-two or twenty-three songs, most of which are tubes ( Second Hand News, Dreams, Rhiannon, Tusk, Sara, Gypsy, Go Your Own Way, Do not Stop ...) or sound familiar (Sisters of The Moon, Landslide, Eyes Of The World, Gold Dust Woman, Silver Springs ...) for two hours from concert.

Two of the four new songs sold on iTunes since late April are also the directory, the first since the last album date training Say You Will (2003). Sad Angel and Without You (not to be confused with a theme of the group in 1969, when he was a blues band led by guitarist Peter Green) sound like songs that have been included in major albums in the mid-1970s to the early 1980s.

There, at the end of the concert, the song during World Turning , a drum solo from Mick Fleetwood, one of the founders of the group in London in 1967. Today, only the hard rock bands still allow this time with Mick Fleetwood happens not to be too long chore. Because he is a craftsman of the first regular strikes, powerful, a drummer who accompanies others and do not play the demo. There is a well calibrated thanks to speech "best audience of the tour in the most beautiful city of the tour" . Nobody is fooled but that's part of the show.


There also has some long stories told by the group Buckingham and singer Stevie Nicks, whose joint arrival in 1975, in the training party is to settle in the United States, corresponded to its global expansion. There is the impassive presence of bassist John McVie, also the first steps of Fleetwood Mac in England and one member, with Mick Fleetwood to have experienced all the various incarnations of the band. Dancing and whirling Stevie Nick, with top hat and tambourine, Short-billed no more today than it was decades.

And then there is, first and foremost, a perfect collection of songs, which occasionally take a little bite when Buckingham propels some solos (in finger-style playing, a bit like the flamenco guitar). Songs that mix pop and folk, country and rock vocal harmonies reinforced by two singers.

Music that appeals to fans of Californian rock 1970s, which saw spending a lot of musical modes without s' efforts to run after. She is played by sixties, which means voice are still there, as well as the ease of instrumentalist.
