WTF were they thinking? Are they just trying to show how different he is from Lindsey, so let's let him look like a 2nd grader playing this(while TWO other keyboard players are on stage). No DOUBT this was idiot $tevie'$ idea!!!

Does anyone know if the blonde backup singer was Marilyn Martin?

I guess MIke had nothing else to do because of how complex the song is to begin with.

I've never liked Gypsy live. Even in 1982/1983.

Christine is definitely facing the audience so you can't see you barely plays. This is such a farce.

I'm beginning to think Lindsey or no Lindsey, that is what she'd be doing in performances.

Seemed like the case at the BuckVie shows.

As far back as The Dance, she has been 'playing' less and less and, yes, the keyboard is positioned to hide this. Sad......I would actually prefer her to come out front and simply sing, rather than this charade. Even her 'singing' yesterday looked .well.....suspect.
After watching yesterday's performance, I listened to the audio of 'Live in Boston' and it highlighted what this band has lost: chemistry and ,really, the ONLY guitar player for these songs that we all love so much.
2015 should have been the end.

The thing for me about Christine is that she's had tons of pitchy moments ever since she came back. Stevie and Lindsey's voices are also shot now but I've never really noticed either of them going off pitch. But with Christine, there's plenty. I saw a video of YMLF from the BuckVie tour and she hit one note that was a HUGE yikes.

She's always been pitchy. Even in her prime, she'd have off nights or off moments.

At the end of the day, Christine is a fantastic studio singer and/or chamber singer. Her voice has never projected especially well live. I say this as one of the biggest Christine McVie fans ever. She had moments from 1974-79 where she sounded fantastic onstage, and then again from 1987-90. She sounded great on THE DANCE performances, but overall she's just not that kind of singer.

Still, I would welcome and prefer her pitchiness to her lipsynching.

And for what it's worth, some songs she still sings very well: "Too Far Gone" was routinely well executed on the LB/CM tour.

I think this is the beginning of the end.

Chris doesn't play You couldn't hear her sing at all. Or Stevie for that matter. It might have been a sound issue. We'll see when the tour starts.

I hate to say it, but without Lindsey, they just don't have it anymore. It's a shame this couldn't have been the great final tour it should have been.

I have always been the biggest Stevie fan, but I'm just mad at her now. I hate the black outfit and her stage movements, I can't stand. What is with all the hand gestures? I have been on the fence about going to see them in November, but this has showed me I'm better off saving my money.

Some sort of attempt at a dark jedi mindtrick.
