Fleetwood Mac's Tour With, FINALLY, The Full Line-up Is A Welcome Return

Fleetwood Mac's On With the Show tour was only into its second night last evening at Chicago's United Center, but the quintet of veterans—Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks—already have a show that feels legendary. There are a few pacing issues and minor flubs but overall this is the complete line-up and show from Fleetwood Mac people have been hoping to see for decades. This is also the first tour to see Christine McVie back in the fold since 1998 and some of the evening's highlights were marked by the band's obvious delight to have her on stage with them again. For a band with such an incestuous past, much of whose legend is built on who fucked who and who did which drugs off the other one, it's truly remarkable that the quintet seems to actually like each other onstage.

Lindsey's out of the leather and back to the cropped jacket and it looks like Christine's complete outfits have changed for every show so far.

We bought 2 tickets for last night's show for my 18 year old daughter’s birthday. Unfortunately last row upper deck but she didn't care as she was going to see her favorite band!!! She was talking about it for months.
The first song starts and they are dancing away while everyone is sitting. They didn't care they were in the middle of the last row as they were just glad to be in the building.
A guy in a security jacket taps them on the shoulder. They thought they were in trouble for dancing while everyone else sat. He says he's an assistant of Mick Fleetwood and wants to know if they would like to go up front. He then asks them which side of the stage they want to be at and proceeded to walk them down in front of row 1.
She cried as she was escorted past security up to the front of the stage. From the last row to the front row just because they were happy to be in the building. Rock on Fleetwood Mac!!!!

For the facebook presale the promoter (livenation) will provide the password usually a day or two before the sale starts. So look for the livenation facebook page. thete are a lot of them mostly regional ones. you want to look for the main one just called livenation
