Man Chris is really giving away that she's not playing anything. Hand running through her hair on the intro to hold me. Yikes

Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie make even a rainy night in Raleigh fun
BY LEAH MOORE

A large crowd braved the rain Saturday night to see Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie, two-fifths of the revered rock band Fleetwood Mac, in a memorable show at Raleigh’s Red Hat Amphitheater.

The concert was a bit delayed due to thunderstorms, but it was worth the wait to see Buckingham’s unique guitar fingerpicking style and hear his harmonies with McVie. The sound was lush and layered, and if you closed your eyes, you were almost at a Fleetwood Mac show.

Buckingham and McVie opened with four songs they played without accompaniment – ”Trouble,” “Never Going Back Again,” “Wish You Were Here” and “Shut Us Down.” These were slow without a backing band.

Buckingham thanked the crowd for coming despite the weather, and then they launched – with the band – into “Sleeping Round the Corner” from their new album, an early highlight of the show.

Other favorites from the night were “You Make Loving Fun”; “Too Far Gone,” which really showed off drummer Jimmy Paxson, who has worked with Stevie Nicks; “I’m So Afraid,” which featured unbelievable guitar playing from Buckingham; and the classic “Go Your Own Way.”

The Fleetwood Mac songs the duo played were greeted with such enthusiasm from the crowd that it might have been a good move to play more of those. But the desire for their new work to stand on its own is certainly understandable, and largely, it did, although they are not the classics.

Buckingham, who did the majority of the talking during the evening, said when he and McVie came back together after her break from Fleetwood Mac, their songwriting chemistry was better than ever before.

“One of the other things that was a surprise and that was just a wonderful occurrence was that she started sending me song ideas, rough song ideas,” Buckingham said. “One thing led to another, and we realized we had an album on our hands. It was something no one saw coming and I guess we sort of sat around wondering what took us so long to figure that one out,” he said.

The Wallflowers, led by frontman Jakob Dylan, Bob Dylan’s son, opened the show.

I'd rather she not pretend to be playing if she can't play for extended periods anymore. She's nearly 74, so it would be completely understandable. Her voice and presence are good enough reasons for her to be back.

The canned backing vocals and music really kills my enthusiasm for the shows. I guess I'm more of a fan of songs being stripped down and revamped for concerts. I'm on the fence about seeing the Detroit and Chicago shows, especially since they announced the Dayton show.

Did either of them sign any autographs at any point during the night?

yes, Lindsey signed tons at the edge of the stage at the end of the show, but Christine seemed to have not noticed fans asking her to sign.

Oh awesome. Not sure which vinyl I'll bring to try and get signed. Maybe Tusk on the off chance I can get both of them too. Lindsey probably couldn't resist signing Tusk

most people holding up stuff to sign had BuckVie albums for them to sign - vinyls, CDs, etc.

Not in Nashville. We were there at least 15 minutes after it was over, and nobody was signing anything. But Lindsey IS the one who interacts with the crowd, and does 99% of the talking. Chris seems to sort of be in her own little world over there. Like she doesn't want to interact.

I noticed this too. It seemed to be nerves about her playing or hitting the notes in general at least to me. She did receive a lot of cheers and cries of "We love you" which made her smile every single time and wave so there's that. She also got a few joke boo's when Lindsey told the story of her quitting in '98 which got a lot of laughs.

I'm fine with her not playing so much. I'm sure part of it IS that she wants to nail the singing as much as she can. As someone who has been in a band, doing both can be tough at times and her her age...

Lindsey signed my Buckingham Nicks album. I didn't notice until
I'd gotten it home that he'd drawn a mustache on Stevie. That rascal.

What about Elton John and Billy Joel?

I wouldn't know if being mad at him for ruining my album or being happy for his endless creativity.
