Jbrown, you know how much I hate it when I'm questioned!

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers played last year when they were honoured. Maybe it's the expectation with this event.?

If that's the case, I hope it's not an omen!

it's pretty standard the way that show is sequenced. i've seen several musicares person of the year shows, and more than half of the show are always various other performers honoring person of the year and performing their songs, with camera cutting to the person of the year a lot as other bands and presenters talk about them and perform, and at the end the person/band of the year performs short set of their songs.

Thanks for the info. I've never been to or seen the event, but I just figured with a 2 1/2 hour schedule and at least 6 other performers, there would be no way FM could perform a full show. Their concert alone lasts 2 1/2 hours, just by themselves! A medley makes more sense, like you said.

Lindsey will never do a medley.

They'll do one whole song, or two, depending on the time.

they don't do medleys. most musicares honorees do a number of songs to close out the show / evening. maybe 5-7? i can't remember exactly i never counted but definitely more than just 2-3, at least all the ones i've seen / were televised.

Sorry, I misunderstood what you meant by a shorter set. Probably the usual suspects, then- Go Your Own Way, Dreams, Everywhere, Rhiannon, the Chain, and Don't Stop.

Stevie and Mick have visited wounded soldiers together... Maybe that counts as a band effort? Does this award honor charitable artists who have been charitable this year or just in general? I am very interested to hear what charities they support.

They did the fundraiser for the Blue Diamond gala in 2016, at Dodger Stadium for Vin Scilly. Maybe that was a big reason.

yes, Fleetwood Mac did. but bands don't do medleys at Musicares ceremonies (at least not at the ones i watched, it might be up to the band what they want to do, and even if they want to perform at all).

i think that at Springsteen's ceremony he several times referred to something extra charitable that he did specifically when (after?) he got a call (offer?) to be a Mucicares person of the year.

So Far, No Rock Acts Confirmed For Fleetwood Macís MusiCares Person of the Year Gala

The initial performers have been announced for the 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year gala paying tribute to Fleetwood Mac -- and, interestingly, none are from the rock world.

Instead the Mac will be feted by pop stars John Legend, Lorde, Harry Styles, Haim and OneRepublic, as well as country crossover hero and former American Idol judge Keith Urban. More performers are expected to be announced for the show on January 26 at New York's Radio City Music Hall, with proceeds going to the MusiCares fund, which helps musicians and music industry staffers in need of assistance.

Fleetwood Mac is expected to tour and possibly release new music next year as well; Details are still vague, but the group's Lindsey Buckingham tells us that

"I think the earliest anyone expected to be back on the road with Fleetwood Mac might've been Spring of 2018. And now that's not actually being pushed back by Stevie (Nicks). My understanding is that she's all ready...and now, you know, because I've got this solo album, I'm the one who's holding it up. But, you know, that's typical for us. There's a lot of moving parts, so you know you gotta wait for everyone to be ready."
