With Mike Campbell in the band, Stop Draggin is guaranteed to be in. He co wrote it with Tom. It'll make a nice opportunity for a Tom tribute/story. It was her first, huge solo hit. Mike sounds like Tom when he sings.

He himself suggested they would do that song in the Sirius interview.

Stevie was adamant in the interview that they would do Don't Dream It's Over. Chris seemed to agree.

I agree with Station Man as an opener. The opening song doesn't need to be particularly well known as the audience isn't going to take a leak or get a drink during the first song. Also, as you say its a good one for all the singers to lend their vocals to.
Iím with madfan4life. World Turing, Gold Dust Woman, Oh Well are all given as much if not more airplay then Go shout Own Way on at least my hometown classic rock station. Plus itís a group participation song.

Although with a lot of bands Iíve noticed itís not so much the best known song that ends the main set but just one of their most kick ass performances of the night to leave the crowd excited. Sometimes rmthats anciver song even in a band like Hearts case.

So I was thinking an epic Green Manaalishi to close the main set. Itís an absolutely epic guitar song and Iím sorry but MC will do a FAR better job then Lindsey ever could on this song. And if stevie even makes the slightest attempt at the wails, this song has set closer written all over it.

In fact I think the last 4 songs of the main set should be:

Little Lies
Gold Dust Woman
Isnít It Midnight
Green Manalishi


Donít Dream Itís Over (definitley needs to be out of the main set)
Stop Dragging My Heart Around

World Turning
Donít Stop

Stevie finally came out of her encore set in stone pattern since 1994 (cover song followed by ballad) for the very first time on the 24 karat gold tour. Maybe Fleetwood Mac will change their approach to what songs can go where.
Never Dance with the Devil

He Will Burn You Down

This is based more on likelihood than preference and I doubt it would be this exact order but I imagine it'll be something like

The Chain
Oh Well (Mike)
Rattlesnake Shake (Mike)
Station Man (Neil & Chris)
Sentimental Lady
Black Magic Woman (Mike)
Say You Love Me
Landslide (better have a guitar solo from Mike instead of cheating and having a keyboard break as in times past)
You Make Loving Fun
Sisters of the Moon
Brown Eyes
Stop Dragging My Heart Around (Stevie & Neil)
Little Lies
Isn't It Midnight
Don't Dream It's Over
Go Your Own Way (Neil)


World Turning
Don't Stop

Billy was the other audition, but it was not to play tunes from "Behind The Mask" and "Time"--they considered him for the old blues/Pre-75 stuff, which at least has some artistic credibility.
"Freedom" in the set? Dear god, no.

And I'd also bet that they'll end up dropping most of the pre-BN stuff. They'll keep Oh Well and maybe one other song or two.
