Default On With The Show & Carnival Begin

Does anyone else think the reason these songs aren't being played on the Buckingham/Mcvie tour, Is because both Chris and Linds have negotiated that the both be played on the upcoming Fleetwood Mac tour?

It makes sense that they would give Stevie Stand back back into the set and Chris and Lindsey ask for these two songs.

Thoughts.

Ha Ha
I don't think Christine and Lindsey would "negotiate" any song they wanted to play live.
I would love it but I don't think they will do any Buck/McVie songs on the Mac tour.

I'm hoping they put Hold Me in the Fleetwood Mac set next year, to replace Think About Me.

I love this idea. Stevie belongs on these songs.

They might be difficult to perform live. Carnival Begin has a lot of aural textures that could be tough to duplicate or approximate live. On with the Show has A LOT of repetitions at the end that could be difficult to sing.

Who knows?

I'd welcome either or both of them into their set, as they are my favorite songs on the album.

They're already playing with karaoke tracks, so the textures aren't an issue.

OWTS is my FAVORITE song on BV. I can't believe they decided to not do it!

I don't think so. But, I wish they would change their mind and play these two songs. I love both of them.

I don't think Chris at this point could hit the "I want it all" note convincingly live unfortunately. That could be the reason for that song. OWTS would be a great FM addition though.

OWTS would've been a very welcome addition to the set list. It's my favorite song on the new cd. But I think in Lindsey's mind it's more relative to FM. OWTS would be a cool song for them to do on the next Mac tour. Here's hoping.

Better chance of seeing them on the second leg.

Thoughts.
This thought had crossed my mind at one point, and not because I would like to hear Stevie sing on them (although I'd be fine if she did; it just wasn't my motivation). But I don't think they will. I think if they cut ISA they could do Carnival (which is my fave on the album) but playing them both, even if they were spread out in the set, would highlight just how similar they are. And Lindsey ain't gonna cut ISA at this point; it's his Rhiannon or GDW or whatever if you know what I mean.

I agree in some ways it would be challenging live-- Lindsey and Chris harmonizing on the main melody (and his voice and hers are very digitally tweaked on those) as well as getting all those layers of backing vocals (though they certainly have plenty of people singing with them onstage live and could do a decent job of it I think) and as Homer points out, they use plenty of pre recorded tracks (though not as much with FM shows as far as I can tell-- they just add more and more additional vocalists-- the 2 or 3 of Stevie's girls, then Brett and Neale on top of the 3 band members -- that's 7-8 people FFS).. And I believe (I don't have the album handy) John and Mick were at least on the Carnival recording so it would make sense.... but they won't do it.

I'm speculating that On With the Show was intended for a new FM album that Lindsey was hoping the 4-some would do before the last tour-- and when it didn't get recorded they still stuck with the name OWTS for the tour itself. (Or maybe it's politics-- with him wanting a tour named for one of his songs after a previous tour wasnamed for a Stevie song -- SYW-- and his people/he wanted equal time?? who knows with this bunch; nothing would surprise me). It at least explains where that tour name came from.
