I'll be there tonight with my wife, son, and daughter, a family affair! We four saw The Mac at The Classic last summer, but this will be my teen kids' first LB solo show (my sixth or seventh). I know they won't be disappointed!

I've read all kinds of reviews and set lists so I don't expect many surprises. I'm not disciplined enough to avoid them! And at least I've already gotten the disappointment out of my system that he's not doing Countdown or You Do or You Don't on this tour...!

What an amazing show tonight in York! I was also attended with my wife and daughters. I didn’t listen to any live recordings before the show so I was very knocked out on what I heard. His voice was the best I have heard him sing live in years. This was my fifth time seeing him solo.His energy is just amazing. I was happy he did Rodeo because I read it was dropped on a couple of the shows. Slow Dancing and I Must Go were standouts for me I never thought I would ever hear those songs live. Lindsey is a 100% class act. He was so genuinely grateful to the audience for being there and he is looking forward to next years new album and getting back in front of his audience with his new band. Every song sounded fantastic!

Great show in York last night! LB sounded stronger than ever, his playing even better. As others have reported, he seems genuinely happy with this tour. The venue was packed and the acoustics were just about perfect. Sure, like anyone else, Iíd have dropped a couple tunes in favor of some personal favorites (Countdown and You Do Or You Donít wouldíve been nice), but hearing songs like I Must Go and a full-ensemble version of Go Insane more than make up for any set list complaints. He mentioned a new album next year and says heíll be back on tour. Great news all around!

The opening act was a little dull. But he had some nice banter with the audience, so even that was enjoyable.

I love both of those songs, too. But I think he tried to balance representation from OUT OF THE CRADLE with his other work. The entire set felt to me like a true retrospective insofar as every stage of his solo (and some Mac) career were given an airing. I might have swapped out "Soul Drifter" for "You Do Or You Don't" but that's just me...

Nnoooo... I loved Soul Drifter live. One of the highlights of the concert for me. But Countdown by Lindsey and the guys would have surely rocked!

You Do Or You Don't is one of my all time Lindsey top favorites, but the bridge is in a really high key. If it meant he'd be singing the whole bridge with an "enhanced" voice like that final part of Surrender The Rain, I'm glad they didn't do it. I mean, he was struggling to belt out out that bridge on the OOTC tour. I was so happy it made the cut for the Anthology, anyway.

I haven't had a chance to sit down and write this until now, but I was at the York show, too. I drove up from DC Friday afternoon and met my college roommate how lives in a nearby town beforehand, and headed to the show as the opener was finishing up.

Definitely an older crowd than in DC, which is to be expected I think. In typical LB fashion, he got the asses out of the seats when all was said and done, which is always fun to watch. I was front row on the far left side and tried rallying people to get up during NGBA/Big Love. I think I was far enough to the side that the house staff didn't harass me about sitting down, which was nice. By Tusk, everyone around me was up through the end of the show.

LB seemed much more relaxed and happy than in DC, which had a few technical glitches. York was seamless. You could tell they are a really well-oiled machine now. It's a shame things are coming to an end soon!

Standout songs for me were Slow Dancing and I Must Go. These songs just rock live. Down on Rodeo is a definite highlight. And I have to say, Tusk and I'm So Afraid are still worth the price of admission (might be unpopular among the super-fans, but damn do they rock). Also, I noticed in DC that Lindsey never says the word "Tusk" during the performance, and the same was true in York. He kind of lets the audience fill in the blank themselves (unless I'm just missing it?).

I had grand plans to take a selfie of myself with Lindsey in the background while strumming the guitar during GYOW, but I got so into the moment that it just didn't happen. I'm okay with that. First time touching the guitar since Fleetwood Mac in Cleveland in 2004! He came to my side first, and nobody around me really seemed to know this was a thing, so I had my own private session with him -- for about half a second,

All in all, a great show and totally worth the drive. Very much looking forward to seeing him again next year!

Tusk is my all time favorite Mac/Buckingham song and it didnít diapoint in York.

I was in the end seat in the fifth row, to Lindsey's right, so I think we were on opposite sides.

I'd add "Go Insane" to the highlights, even with the "extra" vocals. I don't recall if he did the full-band version when I saw him in '92/'93, but he's definitely stuck to the acoustic-only version every time I've seen him since, so it was great to hear the "true-to-the-recording" version for a change! And it's such a fun song!

You didn't miss much with the opening act. His music was kinda dull. Seemed like a nice guy, though - he built a nice rapport with the audience between the sleep-inducing tunes!
