Thumbs up Live in Manchester 08/25/1990 BBC broadcast

Was listening to this (again) today. So much jumped out at me. The last true arena rock sound of the band. Many songs like Everywhere and Isnt It Midnight are so uptempo compared how they would play it today. Mick is pretty sharp on drum licks too. You can hear Christine's organ in every song OMG. Landslide is not a sing along like it is today dedicated to Christine's brother. Christine and even Stevie's voice is really strong. No pre-recorded tracks or backing vocals. Lindsey was not there by choice! This just sounds incredible. Love Stevie's backing on Stand on the rock! Save Me is amazing! Such high energy.

Thanks for posting the link. I had heard a boot long ago, but the linked show starts from the beginning of "In the Back of My Mind".

The tour itself was fantastic! The band appeared to have a lot of fun on this tour, at least before the book. Take "Tear It Up" for instance - Stevie *danced* and played tambourine throughout the song. Very uptempo .. all into the song.

I've had this for years but must say I haven't listened to it in a long ass time. Thanks for sharing the link as it truly holds up as a great concert almost 30 years later. So many great songs and the 'new' songs really do sound good live. Save Me is indeed fantastic! I love this version of Gold Dust Woman and while the vocal on Go Your Own Way is impossible for anyone but Lindsey to make sense of (even he struggles), it is a really rocking way to end the show. The '87-'90 band isn't comparable at all to 2018+. Father Time and poor decisions have taken their toll.

Wow! Christine's organ on The Chain is incredible. I can hear her backing vocals, too. Lindsey would have run over and unplugged her for playing like that.

Lindsey: I told you Christine!! Only backing tracks!

You can hear it almost on every song. I miss her playing so much. I love her style. You can hear it anywhere. One of the reasons I like the album BTM is because for the first time since Mirage, we hear Christine playing lots of keyboards. We only get a taste on Tango.

I have a record of this concert many years, but this version has much much better sound and it shows that the show was really great.
Thanks for the link.

The first song I had to check was of course Stand Back, finally a really super quality record of any concert from this great tour .

I was checking setlist.fm pages and found info of the December 7, 1990 at Great Western Forum, Inglewood, CA. The Encore section starts with:
Tear It Up (Johnny Burnette cover) (with Lindsey Buckingham)

Didn't know Lindsey joined them once (or more dates?). What's the story behind that appearance? Does anybody know?

Those were the last two performances of that tour that he joined, if I remember correctly? In Oakland the night before, and at The Forum for the final show. It was because those were to be Stevie and Christine's last shows with Fleetwood Mac. Lindsey did Landslide with Stevie and then came back for Go Your Own Way (and apparently Tear it Up).

The Landslide video from the Forum is readily available on Youtube. I've never seen nor heard Go Your Own Way but I've read claims here that it was QUITE the performance!

GYOW wasnít especially great. It was just very emotional having Lindsey there. All the hugs. Christine was running her fingers through his hair. Stevie was very moved and gave a heartfelt comment and being a BN fan at the time I found it extremely momentous, even though she ruined the moment eventually with Greenpeace and grabbing a kid from the audience and derailing the focus of everything.

LMAO. OMG I remember Stevie being trashed in the Pittsburgh Press review about her Greenpeace speech. It railed against her about being so arrogant to tell fans "do it for me" after their November 1990 concert.

Someone around here...and I don't remember who...maybe it was the FM Usenet group....I'm going back a long time on this one...anyway, someone used to claim that version from the Forum was THE quintessential best version of GYOW ever. I've longed for it for years but I've got to think that a recording just simply doesn't exist, at least not among the fans. By now it would have had to come out.

And I'm not shocked at all about Stevie killing the moment - she's really perfected that move throughout her life

Why is it dedicated to Christine's brother? Did something happen?

yes, Stevie states he is in the audience

What is your opinion about Stevie's "take your silver springs and dig your grave"

Klonopin slip or swipe at Mick?
