Default Seriously...are they even playing?

CMs hands aren't even on the keyboard for the opening piano riff.

I don't think LBs guitar is on until the solo, then he shuts it back off.

Big machine. Small machine. Karaoke machine.

I hate it, too. My HEROES are(hard to find, because they're) singing karaoke.

Somebody needs to kick Lindsey's ass for thinking the karaoke is a good idea. I think I'll send my great grandma...shouldn't be a problem.

She's playing basic chords on some tracks, he's playing solos. The rest of the band is playing some of the parts. A strange mix of performance and pre-recorded tracks. This as been typical of LB's solo shows for the last two tours. I think it's also the way with FM shows as of late.

Here there is some mechanical issue, and mid solo the track stopped. Not sure he was even playing this solo now. (Last 40 seconds)

It would be funny if they piped in Stevie's vocals

They are piping in LINDZ vocals for sure! WATCH the clip again during the first time he sings "COME ON AND"...it's totally not coming from him. He's lip synching to a pre-recorded version of himself. How friggin lazy! I noticed this at the Beacon NYC show and i just lost all enjoyment of a "LIVE" version of the song.

It saddens me so much to see this. I know it is common practice with a number of big name acts, but it has clearly become more of a crutch for the past few tours. This combined with the never ending Stevie related drama has turned me off of the Mac as they currently exist. I am to the point where I want to appreciate and enjoy the great songs and performances they gave us in the past and accept that it is time for them to call it a day as a band.

So I'm really torn about getting a ticket to the show. I need to decide by tomorrow morning.

it's funny.... and his face is the same face he made during GYOW at the Classic (east? west?) ....he scrunches up like he just bit a lemon and then looks offstage to his guitar guy.

The "tell me, tell me lies" is clearly pre recorded, none of their backing musicians are even pretending to sing it either.

Which raises the question-- do Brett and Neale et al really actually sing, or do they mime to pre recorded LB tracks? I've wondered this at his solo shows as well.....

Unhappy

If this is true, it is really sad.

Kevin, seriously go. It was an amazing show for me in Los Angeles.

EVERY act uses backing tracks and musicians. And a lot of the youtube are getting feed from the monitors vs. the PA's sound system so if you sit up front the concert will sound different.

I sat just a little bit back from the stage had an amazing experience. Don't miss it. You will be so happy you went.

It *is* pretty off-putting, though I still enjoyed the show. My favorite part by far was the acoustic opening set, largely because I don't think they use any pre-recorded tracks during those 4 songs.

Say what you will about Stevie, I don't think she uses prerecorded tracks in her shows. The 24KG performance I saw felt much more dynamic than Buckingham McVie.

You make a great point. They don't need to sound like the album. Which is why they do it. I love the raw voices. But, the vibe was amazing. I felt the love for sure. Plus, maybe the last time I ever get to see them. You never know.
