Got my email too! In 48 hours, I'll be there...
I'm getting worried though - there are still a lot tickets available.

Yep, its not even half sold. Miami is a horrible market. The Unleashed tour was one of only 2 stops of an extremely successful tour that was cancelled in south Florida due to poor sales.
I expect the show will still go on.

I remember. I ended up flying up to Manchester Ma to go see them...
And, SoFla can have real subdued audiences for LB if I recall.

They had a good crowd for Buck/McVie at the Hard Rock but casinos have horrible crowds. All the front rows are comped tickets and they sit there like a bump on a log. I was actually yelling at people to stand up and cheer during I'm So Afraid

I was there too! I was lucky enough to sit next a lady who was really excited to be there - she was yelling out Lindsey’s name a lot! hahaha I think we were the only ones standing up dancing.

The One Man show audience at Gusman was kinda sleepy. So was the audience at the Parker Playhouse show. Geez- now I'm second guessing seeing the Miami show! Lol

On his Under the Skin tour, I saw him in Denver. THAT was a great show!

What row are your seats?

I sent pm, but think it didn't go thru
I'm in 3rd row, lined up with the mic
I'm starting to get the pre-night excitement! Anyone who knows me, knows I live and breath LB's music... eeekkkkk!

WOW. What a show. What an entertainer. What a guitarist.
The meet and greet had a good turn out probably around 40 people. Very organized event. It was really a picture opportunity but you could say something. There were probably too many people for questions. They keep the line moving. I am always surprised how much shorter celebrities are when you meet them. Seeing them on stage, video or photos makes them seem larger than life. I shook his hand and posed for 2 pictures. My hands have come in contact with both Stevie and Lindsey now. I suppose I have went full circle Its casual but quick. I hope the photo turns out good. I regret not getting that Buckingham/Nicks '73 T shirt I saw online with tape over the Nicks part for the photo. PLEASE someone do it!

The opening act is J.S. Ondara. He plays acoustic folk music that he states many times is sad music. He was funny with cracking jokes with the crowd. His album is not out yet and I think he did 5 songs. The last song has no music to it at all. He's part Tracey Chapman and part Bob Dylan. I found his songs all sounding very similar. Its fantastic that Lindsey included this guy on his tour to give him an audience and opportunity in the tough music business. However, I would have preferred no opening act and the Lindsey starting at 8 instead of 9.

I was in the front row and right in front of an amplifier. OMG, my ears are still ringing. The concert was not overly loud but when an amplifier is in your face it sure is. Small theaters have low stages so the speakers are at eye level. My ears have not rung from a concert since Motley Crue and AC/DC in the 1980's. Wow, Lindsey gives his ALL! He is soaked with sweat and performs over 20 songs. He never leaves the stage at any time either. His chatter has been reduced since the lawsuit was announced. Fleetwood Mac is never mentioned. He only stated something like "the events over the past year have made him welcome a new beginning that he looks forward to." He also mentioned his solo album is coming out next year and he will be back on the road. A few highlights for me was Go Insane and Slow Dancing. OMG these songs kick ass and rock live. You really have to see these songs live. The online videos don't do them justice. The Knight Concert hall is pretty large. It holds just over 4500 seats. I would say it was 50% full. At least the bottom part was mostly full. The second tier had a few stragglers in the front row and the second tier was completely empty. The side balconies were mostly full. It was a better showing than I was expecting. Its a real treat to see Lindsey in a small theater and up so close. You really get to watch him play which is really something. During the massive Mac shows its hard to see him playing. He gives 110%. When the band took their bows at the end Lindsey pretended to faint and fall over. He was exhausted and no wonder why. Almost everyone in the front row got to strum his guitar (including me) during GYOW. I guess I can cross that off my bucket list. People were shouting out song requests. Someone shouted out "My little demon" and Lindsey just looked over and laughed. Another person shouted out "Monday Morning" and Lindsey said jokingly that it was not a request concert but went on to say that maybe the next tour he can think about doing such a show. 21 songs!! Seriously. He could have done 14 songs and it would have been a full show. Oh the irony that Fleetwood Mac is on tour doing Monday Morning, Second Hand News, and Go Your Own Way while Lindsey is only doing Go Your Own Way. I saw Buckingham/McVie last year. This is my first Lindsey solo concert ever. Stevie Nicks has unintentionally given us amazing treats we could never have imagined. First being a Buck/McVie album and tour. Now and incredible full solo tour of Lindsey's solo career. We got these treats back to back BTW. If I did not have to work tomorrow, I would drive to Melbourne to see the show again before he finally leaves Florida.

Definitely check out this show. Lindsey solo tours are rare. I had high expectations and this show exceeded them. All the music sounds so fresh. Lindsey even commented when he put this package of songs together, he was surprised how fresh and current they sound.

Yes, in every cloud there is a silver lining and from everything negative comes a positive. That is indeed the best approach to take.

Love the fact that Lindsey is rocking it! He's a beast!

Glad you had a good time at the concert, and thanks for the review!
