needless to say - of course i'm sitting out. i wouldn't go even if someone got me in for free. his heart attack makes it even worse.

i last saw Chris up close and personal 10+ times on BuckVie tour in 2017, i'm good. if she gets together with Lindsey again - IF he ever tours again - then i'll get to see her again.

i hope DC reviewers will have the integrity like the several recent ones had (not sure why those very balanced critical reviews are not posted in this forum) to actually review the show and not just paste the text provided by the band publicists.
I hadn't checked the current band's set list in a while. As previously stated, my main reason for sitting out was what the band did to Lindsey. But I'll admit that the opening night setlist was tempting.

Fast forward to today, they've dropped all of the interesting songs that a long-time fan would want to hear... Hypnotized, Isn't It Midnight, Storms, Tell Me All The Things You Do. It's unbelievable. Especially after the shot Stevie took at Lindsey about playing those songs, and of course the band's statement when they fired him:

Quote:
Fleetwood Mac issued a collective statement about the news, saying: We are thrilled to welcome the musical talents of the caliber of Mike Campbell and Neil Finn into the Mac family. With Mike and Neil, well be performing all the hits that the fans love, plus well be surprising our audiences with some tracks from our historic catalogue of songs. Fleetwood Mac has always been a creative evolution. We look forward to honoring that spirit on this upcoming tour.

The floodgates have opened up on the sides of the stage... An even better section than the one I was referring to earlier.

oh wow. i also just got a stubhub email and clicked on it - there's row 5 orchestra floor for $215. scalpers are definitely losing money on this tour, at least looking at today's show.

Maybe it wont sell out. At this point, its already been a successful tour, so it would only be an unusual blip.
