Yes. The "Go Hoooome" was hit like dynamite in a reverb filled jarring echo chamber.

Why the need for backing tracks? I'm asking because I really don't know. Why wouldn't you just have more musicians on stage? Is it a cost cutting thing? I'm going to the Pittsburgh show next month and my seats are the same right side about 5 rows up. I hate that the sound might be bad.

To be fair, Jagger has been avoiding a verse in Sympathy for the Devil for 20 years including the iconic line ďi shouted out, who killed the Kennedyís..Ē

That said, I find Micks omission of such an iconic part of an iconic song stupid. And Stevieís absolute awkward decimation of her most iconic song is ridiculous.

Doesn't Mick also omit or change the words to Midnight Rambler and Under My Thumb in live shows as well so not to offend?

I think Stevie shortened Edge because she didn't want to do the wail anymore.

Houston Chronicle review headline says Stevie Nicks tells crowd she didnít vote until age 70
The quote also mentioned she didnít want to do jury duty or tell Lindsey she had to leave the road. I guess sheís suggesting he didnít vote while they were young either. Why is she saying this to the audience?

The review is subscriber only so I canít post it.

She should be horrified to tell people that she was too self absorbed to spend 70 years not voting.
Me, me, ME, the Stevie Nicks Method.

It'll be fine. You'll enjoy the show. It's very noticeable to me because I've been seeing her live for over 45 years and I've watched the live music industry evolve and change so much with technology over the years. The raw spontaneity that used to make live music concerts so interesting is gone.

She's not the only one using them. Many of the older rock acts that play large arenas are now basically singing karaoke to pre-recorded tracks. It has become industry standard.

Yes, she sure did tell the crowd that. It's a lame excuse for someone who's led a privileged life.

In her defense, she was pleading with the audience to please register to vote because it's more important now than ever.

The songs can't BREATHE now. Tempos can't fluctuate when you're playing with tracks. It's awful.

You know what. I could not understand for the life of me why she would axe the verse. But I think you are right. She can't wail anymore. But she does not have to wail. She can just quack like a duck or something.

Did she also tell the crowd that I Sing For the Things is on The Wild Heart album? I wonder if Waddy, Sharon, and Marilyn know that it's on Rock A Little.

Actually, last year I saw two concerts by two young bands: Phases and Levitation Room. Both setups were heavily hard-drived on computers. Kind of disappointing. I really do prefer hearing a traditional rock combo just slam through all on their own. (The great Welsh band Stereophonics still play that way.)

But hereís how I feel about the microchips onstage or backstage ó I think theyíre overused or misused. Talking Heads started their first several years of concerts with plenty of high tech, too, but they integrated it perfectly into their live act so that it added to the excitement of the set rather than overpowered it. If digital and prerecordings are used tastefully and inventively, they can be seamless and positive. Fleetwood Mac, unfortunately, does not use the technology that way. They just trowel it on until you can no longer distinguish what the five stars sound like from the backline. Unless youíre performing a violin concerto, the backline head count should never outnumber the frontline.

Part of the problem may be that todayís audiences from about row five and back donít really care about whatís happening onstage. Theyíre on their phones.

LOL. Or do a brief crack dance at that moment.

From our seats very close to the stage, the sound was jarring and harsh. It was like the vocals were piping out of a jangling echo chamber. It was just the oddest thing. I could see the band playing and putting all of their effort into the show - but the sound system was bizarre. I actually wanted ear plugs at one point - and I have NEVER been that person.

Just give me a real rock and roll band onstage - flaws and all. I don't need this bizarre technology. It kills the joy and spontaneity of live music.
