Default Rock Legends You Should Catch On Tour This Year

All The Rock Legends You Should Catch On Tour This Year


Fleetwood Mac

This is probably going to be the most divisive entry on this list, and your inclination to attend probably boils down to how much you value singer/guitarist Lindsey Buckingham’s impact on the sound and aesthetic of Fleetwood Mac. The group, who have changed lineups multiple times over years, are banking on the idea that their decision to fire Buckingham won’t impact fans desire to hear Stevie Nicks belt out “Landslide” on a nightly basis. Maybe that’s true, but a lot of the magic of the band is the theater of tension/affection onstage exhibited onstage between Nicks and her former paramour. We’ll see how Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell and singer Neil Finn can fill the roles.

If they have any decency, they will drop her bellowing Landslide...

I can't take another listen to her butcher that song.

landslide butchered? I agree, I’d be beyond ecstatic if it were dropped but it’s one of those songs that in the moment live I always enjoy because she sings it so well (at least in my opinion) it’s not both tired and done terribly like Gypsy Dreams and Rhiannon (but again I have high hopes for a Rhiannon Revival with Mike Campbell! )

Landslide is still beautiful but Rhiannon has been dreary for a long time, sadly. I guess they feel obligated to do it anyway. Campbell cannot save it because Stevie cannot sing it anymore. She has flattened it out.

If the band had any sense they would drop Landslide and let Stevie perform Man of the world instead. If one of the new guys sing it, half the arena will walk out. But Stevie keeps the casual fan's asses in the seats. That could be their slow acoustic song instead of Landslide.

So Mick is saying that Stevie wants to sing "Black Magic Woman." Is that a joke? She obviously thinks it applies to herself, so is she going to change the lyrics? That's a really bad idea, I think... parts of the song would become really awkward.

It would be very awkward. The idea of a 70-year-old woman doing a song written from the p.o.v. of a young, pessimistic working-class bloke enamored of the blues and sex with a hot babe . . . . I guess all that gets lost when the song is fifty years old or whatever it is.

The idea of Nicks trying Man of the World is even more ludicrous because the vocal requires a soaring howl of pain and a throw-it-all-away recklessness that Nicks hasn't touched since her Fritz days.

No, if she wants to switch out her old stinkers for some new ones, I think she's better off doing some of the Holly and Ronstadt songs she's tried successfully in recent years: Poor Poor Pitiful Me, It's So Easy, Not Fade Away, etc.

I could easily see the band working a "Black Magic Woman" interlude into the 9 minute version of "Gold Dust Woman"--with Stevie on vocals. It's quite comical that the High Priestess wants to take a stab at "Black Magic Woman". Sit back, relax, and pop a bowl of popcorn. This should be good.

Kinda off-topic, but... I'm seeing Mike Nesmith and Micky Dolenz in PA this Thursday - they belong on this list!

I have a feeling that we are going to be well into 2020 and you are still going to be belly aching about this.

Not me, myself, if we have some new Lindsey music in the mean I'll be pleased as punch. But I do admit to the guilty pleasure of wondering how that tour will go.

same!

also, although i'm blocking out bunch of people since i have no time for their negativity and hate directed at me, it's so good to check back in here after several days away and see in whichever thread i open bunch of juvenile personal insults being thrown specifically at me by various SN worshippers that apparently have no coherent responses on topics at hand. i guess they miss me!

Get professional help. You cannot go on like this, Elle.

some here think mental health issues are a joking matter. this is not ok, guys.

mods should really step up a bit. way too many personal attacks on posters here (and i haven't even had time to check much lately so there's probably much much more i haven't seen), apparently just because someone's favorite singer turned out not to be a saint.

If they were saints, they wouldn’t be rock stars.
