Default But I only saw one!!!

Well, don't have a video from each tour, and I only assisted to one. From what I saw, Rumours/Tusk era could be the best, though the Mirage video is very cool.

But since the reunion was kind of magical, and I went to the NY show, it's my favorite!

I found it quite difficult to choose between Tusk and SYW, but ended up choosing SYW.

Hearing Beautiful Child and Goodbye Baby live was just heavenly, I think those are her most spellbinding live songs.

Lindsey got more and more relaxed onstage with each tour, and he really shined on the Tusk tour, but the SYW concerts are his crowning achievements within the band. He just lets loose and has a good time and it's infectious.

I had to vote for SYW because I went to a few shows, got to play Lindsey's guitar and actually got to say a few words to both he and John. Music-wise I would choose either Tusk or Mirage. But SYW it is for me!!!

I voted for the current Say You Will tour. They've just been on the whole time. I would have voted for Tusk, but the performances back then were either all or nothing. They put on some amazing shows, but I've also heard Tusk shows where they're all either way too drunk, way too high or not into it, making it lackluster. So that's the only reason SYW got my vote over Tusk.

Are we talking about tours we've been to or just in general?

Definitely, the 1975-1976 tour. They had the best set lists, with songs from the Peter Green & Bob Welch years plus new songs from the White Album & even a few songs from Rumours before it was released. They were also in their prime around this time. The Mystery To Me & Heroes tours would be my next favorite choice.

From an audio/video point of view and because it was the era when I discovered the Mac~~Mirage is a favorite but I voted for the current Say You Will tour because it is so fresh in my mind and because I went to five shows. I had been to Tango and The Dance shows but only one a piece but Say You Will was a trip for me!! I had a blast!

This is hard, but I'll go with Mirage. I could go with any one of several, to be honest.

"Infectious"...what a great and perfect word to use to describe That LB Vibe!

Exclamation In general...

I would pick the Tusk tour...

But if yer going by tours attended it would be the SYW tour ("Currently" at 3 shows), Which is the tour that I voted for.

This is a toughie...

I've narrowed it to:

Heroes Are Hard To Find (1974)
Shakin' The Cage (1987/88)
white album (1975/76)

...those are the tours on which I caught several shows each. I think I'd have to rate them in that order...1974 being the best. Probably, 99% due to the fact that it was the first tour I'd actually seen them in person. The 75/76 tour was, BY FAR, the best tour I've seen with Lindsey & Stevie.

Of tours I've only heard and not seen...

Bare Trees tour (1972)
Then Play On tour (1970)...the last days with Peter Green, the band seemed to be playing at their highest (both literally & figuratively ) level.
