I was thinking the exact same thing!!! So disappointed, but I'll survive I wonder why he doesn't perform Countdown? It might not be a favorite of his, maybe it's hard to perform, maybe he thinks it's not a fan favorite because it didn't chart? Who knows. Since it's on his anthology, I was really hoping it would make it on his set list.

At least we're getting Holiday Road!

But Iíve seen him do Holiday Road a few times. Countdown is the only song in my, say, Top 20 Lindsey/FM songs that Iíve never seen performed live. I was sure heíd do it this year! ☹️

He definitely needs to do a Howard Stern interview. Iíd love to hear his honest take on what happened. I canít imagine at this age that he cares if he ever goes back to do another Chain/Dreams/Everywhere/Rhiannon/Big Love/Landslide/fake hug/Tusk/etc tour with Fleetwood Mac. So just be honest and share your side man.

LB's been nothing but classy since the split, no reason to think he'd treat it as a bash session.

the set list looks amazing, but I too am disappointed to hear no Countdown.... but I've always wondered if 'waiting on the countdown, things about to turn around' was him thinking the OOTC album was going to do really well and take his solo career to a new level.....

and when it didn't, maybe it was just too disappointing. and who wants to revisit that........???

That's an intriguing thought.

I was also looking forward to Countdown instead of Surrender the Rain and Streets of Dreams.

It was a great night. Really enthusiastic crowd. Not very much at first but we were glued to the stage from the very first song and I guess the crowd became more confident to stand up and dance and sing.

Great energy on stage. From Lindsey and the whole band. He was really happy to play his music. And so sweet at M&G. Sadly, there was no item signing but we all got our hug at the end.

Yes! But donít worry about getting there too early. Youíll be ok even if you get there at the time the show starts. Itís not like theyíre not gonna let you in!

See you on Saturday!

Those 1984 songs ó Slow Dancing, Go Insane, and I Must Go ó feature a lot of Fairlight wizardry and technology in the studio. Did his band replicate the studio sound or re-create them in a contemporary context?

I'm thrilled to see Slow Dancing in his concert set. First time ever, no? It's one of the best dance tracks from all the Macsters. It's Lindsey's Stand Back, only with lyrics that make sense.

For those of you guys who see him at the gigs or after, convince him to do a live album (or a radio simulcast) of a tour stop. Remember those old Westwood One Superstars Rock Concert broadcasts? I know, that's so 1985. But Lindsey could broadcast a show's audio via his YouTube channel or his website. It costs nothing to do this. His children could help him with the JavaScript!
