That audience sure loved “Over My Head”! Other favorites that night appear to be “Spare Me,” “One in a Million,” and “Don’t Stop.”

Great crowd.

My overall impression is that is was a VERY full show. She gave a lot and the band was tight. The songs were sequenced well, too. One cool song after another.

With one of the greatest bands of all time at her disposal, why on earth was she touring solo?

Maybe Stevie was busy with Rock A Little. But I imagine Go Insane was either finished by the time of this tour, or the tour could have been scheduled for after it was.

And even if not, does anyone really think Mick and John wouldn't have backed her up?

Her band was pretty good, though. i saw her on that tour and i remember being impressed. and i don't know if FM would have been thrilled to be her 'back up band' while she was doing all new solo stuff?

i mean, she was 'touring solo' to promote her solo album, and it was all on a much smaller scale than any Mac tour ever was. Mick i believe was actually on the road as well w/ his own band, the Zoo, around that time period. Stevie and LB had their own stuff going on. And John was pretty bad w the alcohol at that time, so... she used the band she had made the album with. and she probably wanted Eddy there since they were an item by them....so no way would john have wanted to be around all that, as he was never fond of him lol.

i think Chris did a good job w the band she had.

She did that solo album as part of her contractual obligation with Warner Bros. Not a shabby obligation, I’d say!

As far as the members of FM being available to back her up, Lindsey was off writing music for what was supposed to be his third album. Stevie was contractually obligated to do Rock a Little less than a year later. John was raising a family.

Mick and Lindsey helped her a lot. LB played and sang on three tracks. Mick on one. Then Mick played live for her video album special.

But I am glad she used her own band. Hawkins and Ferrone make a killer rhythm section. Sharp is a fine guitarist in his own right. The only thing her band could have used was a backup singer to handle high-end harmonies. Christine used David Isaacs, a fine tenor, in the studio for ITM. “Friend” and “Sweet Revenge” benefit from his harmonies.
