Default Tampa / Feb. 18, 2019

A review was published in the Tampa Bay Times this morning, though I don't agree with it 100%.

https://www.tampabay.com/music/revie...rena-20190218/

I was in the front row, directly in front of Christine. I found her to be personable, and really enjoyed her interactions with Mike C. on "Black Magic Woman" and with Stevie on "All Over Again". I thought Christine was in fine voice, though next time I see the band I wouldn't object if "You Make Loving Fun" was traded in for "Spare Me A Little Of Your Love".

My favorite numbers of the night:

"Second Hand News"
"Black Magic Woman"
"Everywhere"
"Tell Me All The Things You Do"
"Oh Well"
"Hold Me"
"Monday Morning"
"All Over Again"

"World Turning" and "Gold Dust Woman" were excruciatingly long, and it would have been nice to shorten those to fit in a few more songs.

Hope anyone else here who attended enjoyed the show!

Only mention that because some are in denial how the band is selling out arenas and packing them in other places

oh BARF. Sterling versions of Rhiannon and Gypsy? Really? Her delivery has been reduced to shouting, not singing at this point and they call Christine out? Barf.

Glad you enjoyed the show, McLamb, and thanks for the link to the review. The reviews for this tour have been stellar.

I also agree with most of your highlights. I really loved All Over Again, Monday Morning, and Don't Dream It's Over, and I thought the review was spot on regarding Free Fallin'. I don't care for the song, but seeing it live was unforgettable. I wish I could see Fleetwood Mac again this tour.

You DO know that many people hadn't heard about Lindsey right? My brother being one of them. The casual fan doesn't hear this news.

You must have really poor news coverage, though I donít know where you are located.
But here in the UK all major newspapers covered Lindseyís sacking.
The Mail, Express, Guardian, Independent and the BBC news.
Online it was everywhere.

Iím not saying everyone knows, but itís not just fans that DO know.
I donít think most people (again not fans) cared..

What time do they actually start performing? I know it says 8:00 pm, but when do they actually come onstage?

For the Tampa show I believe the band made their entrance at 8:15 pm. Christine and Stevie walked on-stage hand-in-hand, and I thought that was really nice.

Christine can't really sing anymore either .Agreed about Stevie most of "singing " is indeed shouting. I just saw a recent interview with the greatest female vocalist of Stevie's era Linda Ronstadt where she stated that when she realized her voice had deteriorated from Parkinson's to where she was shouting instead of singing she retired stating " I can't charge people for that " Stevie apparently has no such qualms.

All of their voices are shot. Stevie was singing the “baby once in a while” lines in Think About Me, as well as “go your own way/another lonely day” lines in 2017.

And, none of them at their best were ever equivalent to Linda Ronstadt.
