Review: Lindsey Buckingham Kansas City "Trouble" at Yardley

Lindsey Buckingham Live
Yardley Hall - Johnson County Community College
Overland Park, KS - November 4, 2012

Tuesday, November 13th Lindsey Buckingham will release "One Man Show" a live acoustic album that documents his current US tour which ends later this month on November 20th.  The release captures Lindsey during his September 1, 2012 Des Moines, IA show and is a straight from the console, no post-production, live... raw..., true sense of being there recording where just a few mics were added to the room to enhance the recording.  From the 4 previews released, it sounds fantastic! It'll be available only on itunes.

American Songwriter has the latest preview: "Trouble".  Take a listen here

Lindsey Buckingham at Yardley Hall: Short but sweet
Special to The Star
Chalk one up for baby boomers.
Popular music is the realm of young musicians and relevant artists over the age of 60 are the exception rather than the rule. While he didn't break any new ground during his bracing appearance Sunday at Yardley Hall, Lindsey Buckingham demonstrated that he remains vital.
Buckingham, 63, used age to his advantage by supplanting youthful rebellion with urgent songs of uncommon maturity. During an unaccompanied performance for an audience of over 1,000, Buckingham reinterpreted old gems from his tenure with Fleetwood Mac and showcased sage songs from his solo career.
An arduous rendition of "Not Too Late" served as the emotional core of the concert and as Buckingham's statement of purpose. He repeatedly howled "it's not too late" as he created distressed ripples of sound with his masterfully plucked guitar. As with most of the evening's 13 selections, "Not Too Late" contained personal epiphanies from the astute perspective of a seasoned artist who understands that time is precious.

Lindsey Buckingham and a surprisingly riled up crowd, last night at Yardley Hall
by David Hudnall
Yardley Hall, at Johnson County Community College, is a nice, big, dignified venue — somewhere between a high school theater and an opera house. If you are an important or otherwise lucky person, there are special boxes along the sides up top from which you can watch the show, possibly through tiny binoculars. This year's concert series includes Capitol Steps, Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and Garrison Keillor, among others. It is not the type of venue where people wave lighters in the air and chief surreptitious bowls in the corner.
But last night at Yardley, the baby boomers in the house simply could not contain themselves. You'd have thought Grover Norquist was in town for a paid speaking engagement. But no: the buzz was all for Lindsey Buckingham, former guitarist and vocalist for Fleetwood Mac.
I can't find a video online of that Chappelle's Show sketch about white people loving guitar solos, but if you've seen that, you pretty much understand the vibe last night. Buckingham is an amazing guitar player, and his 70-minute set was as much a clinic as it was a performance. He took the stage in a leather jacket and form-fitting jeans, looking at least a decade younger than his 63 years. After each song, he would tilt up his guitar and clutch it to his heart, as though it were a child, and bask in the wild applause. Then a tech would cross the stage and hand Buckingham a new guitar. I'm pretty sure he never used the same guitar on consecutive songs.

Buckingham is back, absent Mac

Arkansas Democratic-Gazette

Lindsey Buckingham has found success in a duo and a group, and is getting the same results as a solo act. Well, maybe not exactly the same, crowd size-wise, but in terms of personal satisfaction, he would say so.

The 63-year-old California-born guitarist-singer-songwriter joined the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 as a part of Fleetwood Mac, a group he helped move from cult status to superstars when he and then girlfriend  Stevie Nicks, became members in 1975, two years after the couple put out an album under their two last names.

With Buckingham and Nicks in the band, Fleetwood Mac became the most commercially successful group of the 1970s. The band’s self-titled album of 1975 sold more than 5 million copies, thanks to the songs “Rhiannon,” “Over My Head,” “Say You Love Me” and “Landslide.” Its 1977 follow-up, Rumours, with sales of more than 19 million copies, had as its memorable songs “Second Hand News,” “Never Going Back Again,” “Go Your Own Way,” “Songbird,” The Chain,” “You Make Loving Fun,” “Gold Dust Woman” and “Don’t Stop.”

After a dozen years, Buckingham took the advice of one of his songs (“Go Your Own Way”) and left the band, due to fatigue from touring and the dissension within the band, aggravated by over-the top success, drugs and crumbling personal relationships.

Thanks to a famous Arkansan, Buckingham began working again with his former band when Bill Clinton was elected president in 1992. Since a major part of the Clinton campaign had been its use of the Fleetwood Mac song “Don’t Stop” (the name of which some assumed to be “Don’t Stop Thinkin’ About Tomorrow”), the band was invited to perform at an inaugural event.

By 1997, band members were again on friendly terms, so they put together a reunion tour, although there was no new album until 2003. Say You Will became the first studio album in 15 years to include Buckingham and Nicks (although Christine McVie was missing, having left in 1998).

On his website, Buckingham indicates that his “intimate, one-man show” will feature songs from his solo albums, “along with a variety of Fleetwood Mac classics” for those wishing to hear their old favorites in a non band format.

He released his seventh solo album, Seeds We Sow, in September 2011 on his label after singing and playing every instrument, recording it in his home studio, plus producing and engineering the album. The only cover song on it is a 1967 Rolling Stones song, “She Smiled Sweetly.” He told Rolling Stone magazine a month before the album’s release that “the songs are all about the accumulation of choices that we make every day and the karmic part of that — which is where the title … comes from. In my own life I've made a lot of choices that weren't always popular with people around me. Only in the last few years have I been able to look at them with the perspective of time.”

Referring to his current tour, Buckingham says on his site: “As I've grown as an artist, I’ve gotten more and more in touch with my center and that center is voice and guitar. Over time it has become increasingly vital to express more with less; that is my touchstone now, and the embodiment of that philosophy is what will be largely represented in the new show. I've been thinking of doing this kind of tour for a while, and am quite excited to be doing something new, something outside my comfort zone.”

But something old is returning. There are reports — confirmed by Buckingham and Nicks — of another Fleetwood Mac reunion and tour in 2013, although McVie continues to resist offers to return to the band, which now consists of Buckingham, Nicks and original members Mick Fleetwood and John McVie.

REVIEWED: Lindsey Buckingham Live In Des Moines 9/1/12

Lindsey Buckingham Live At Hoyt Sherman Place
Des Moines, Iowa, September  1, 2012
by Todd Totale

“Look at all of those dudes up by the stage taking pictures of Lindsey’s guitar rack.” I pointed out to my wife as we made our way to our seats at Lindsey Buckingham’s solo performance in Des Moines last Saturday night. “That’s hilarious!” I added as we both sat down.

“Don’t laugh.” She replied. “You know you want to go up there and do the same thing.”

I paused for a moment before admitting, “I do want to go up there.”

Review: Lindsey Buckingham stands alone - Ottawa

The Ottawa Citizen Sept 8, 2012
Review: Edwards delivers big-hearted show; Buckingham stands alone

By Lynn Saxberg, Ottawa Citizen
Photo Gallery

Lindsey Buckingham is best known for his work in Fleetwood Mac, an entity he described as the “big machine” during his show Friday night.

However, the purpose of his current tour is to show off the “small machine” of his solo work. His most recent solo album, Seeds We Sow, came out last year.

“The big machine and the small machine have come to inform each other and find each other and balance each other, and would not exist without each other,” said the 62-year-old American musician, describing the solo experience as a “strange little experiment.”

For a solo performer, he had a huge sound, thanks to the pumped-up volume of his guitar, which at first threatened to drown out his voice. Once things were sorted, he sang well enough, but it was still his guitar work that dazzled, as he demonstrated his skill on a parade of six-stringed instruments, electric and acoustic. The concert drew from Buckingham’s solo repertoire, including songs like Cast Away Dreams and Bleed To Love Her, as well as the Mac catalogue. Next to the unfamiliar solo stuff, the Fleetwood Mac hits energized the crowd.

But that energy was built on Edwards’ performance earlier in the evening.

Lindsey Buckingham Dazzles With Intense Acoustic Show
by Brittany Leona

The CUPE-SCFP main stage of Ottawa's Folk Festival was graced tonight with one of rock's greatest legends: Lindsey Buckingham. One may be tempted to assume that based on his musical career spanning nearly four decades, having released over a dozen albums, being a talented composer, singer and producer, that he would have a larger than life stage presence and the typical rocker attitude to go with it – one would be wrong about the last item mentioned.

Photos & Mayhem in Ottawa for Lindsey Buckingham + Stevie Nicks in Washington, DC

Weird sort of circumstances... Both Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks are performing tonight in Nation Capitals.  Lindsey's in Ottawa which is the National Capital of Canada playing the Folk Festival and Stevie Nicks is performing tonight (and tomorrow) in the US Capital Washington, DC at the National Portrait Gallery for The Celebration of Science Dinner.  Stevie spoke of her Walter Reed visits and performed Soldiers Angel.

The Ottawa Folk Festival
Twitter reports live from the Folk Festival are saying that the power cut out during Lindsey's performance of "I'm So Afraid" not once, but a couple times... Mic's weren't working... Amps blew out...THAT can't be good!  So Lindsey moved on to "Go Your Own Way", finished the tune then left the stage ending his set as per usual.  When he came back he said 'They've assured me this won't happen again" he then moved onto the encores of "Trouble" and "Seeds We Sow" with no issue, then attempted "I'm So Afraid" at the very end once again when for the second time things blew up and the sound cut out.  And that's where the show ended... Too bad about I'm So Afraid, but in the end most of the show was performed which is great!

The weather in the area hasn't been the greatest this evening, the rain had apparently held off, but there was lightning overhead during his performance and maybe there was a lightning strike near by, maybe once, maybe twice... Or maybe the humidity was too much... Who knows.  In the end... From those who attended, it sounds like he put on an impressive performance!

Folk Fest: Big Love for solo act

If there ever was anyone who could hit all the right notes for the new Ottawa Folk Festival, Lindsey Buckingham would be at the top of the list.

Fleetwood Mac’s former lead guitarist, and arguably its most successful songwriter, played a solo acoustic show of Fleetwood Mac hits as well as his own songs, stripped down to the bare bones.

Now 62 but looking intense, Buckingham opened his show with Cast Away Dreams. Alas, despite the tune’s hypnotic rhythm, the sound was so loud and sharp, it hurt to listen. However, the problem was fixed by the time he played his second tune, a Fleetwood Mac cover called Bleed to Love Her.

He then described the show’s content, and his career thus far as the “big machine versus the little machine, that is, Fleetwood Mac and my solo career.”

In the late 1970s, Fleetwood Mac was one of the biggest-selling bands on the planet, and Buckingham was the author of their most popular hit songs Go Your Own Way, Never Going Back Again and Big Love.

Packing an impressive arsenal of exotic guitars, Buckingham played some of the most dazzling licks I’ve ever heard from a guitar, and his writing is forceful and unconventional. My only regret was having to leave early to meet an early deadline.

Here are a couple of Twitter pics from tonight.

Review: Lindsey Buckingham Des Moines, IA Sept 1st

Lindsey Buckingham Hoyt Sherman - Show Recap (Des Moines, IA)
by dsmvibe

This past Saturday night, former Fleetwood Mac guitarist/singer/songwriter Lindsey Buckingham was in town for an intimate show at Hoyt Sherman Place. I would describe myself as someone who was familiar with Fleetwood Mac, but haven’t really followed Buckinghams solo career in recent years. Apparently, I was in the minority.

I was sort of expecting a laid back, standard acoustic show….but instead, Buckingham proceeded to let it rip, and the crowd was loving every second of it. No joke, I think he got a standing ovation after every song.
