Default 75 tour

They were also in their prime around this time. The Mystery To Me & Heroes tours would be my next favorite choice.

I saw both 74 (Heroes) and 75 and thought they were great. Just saw them again for the first time since then.

Anyway, I was just thinking the other day, that I thought that they had played Go Your Own Way on the White Album tour at Winterland. I thought that I was going senile, but your post made me feel like maybe my memory was correct.

Your memory is perfect! Here's a review that ran in Billboard:

Winterland
San Francisco
November 28-29, 1975

The group gave an electrifying performance Nov. 29 to a wildly cheering sellout crowd in San Francisco, a town where they have always been loved. The previous evening's performance had also gone clean.

Fleetwood Mac is a band that has suffered numerous personnel changes over the years as well as a legal battle to stop a bogus Mac from using its name, but it seems to have emerged all the stronger for it. This band, in fact, seems to actualize everything that was always potential in Fleetwood Mac; this is the Fleetwood Mac one always knew was possible.

This is due in no small part to the services of the two new members of the group, female vocalist Stevie Nicks & guitarist Lindsay Buckingham, who had worked together before joining Fleetwood.

Nicks, a newly born rock 'n' roll queen swirling in black around the stage, has a belty voice that belies her size & she provides an excellent front focus for the band. Buckingham is a smashingly good guitarist, & in other ways is a pleasing replacement for Bob Welch. Buckingham almost sounded at times like two players, unleashing solos & fills that drew continual applause. The three older members of the band---John & Christine McVie & Mick Fleetwood---are as solid as ever. Fleetwood's drumming remains among the most visceral & bone-straightening in rock.

Another equally important part of the Mac image is the perfect male-female balance that probably accounts for the band being both so melodic & so tough. Christine McVie, because of the smoothness of her voice, the sweetness of her songs, & her longevity with the band, exerts a creatively calming influence that is almost tangible.

The band did the best songs from the most recent LP (Nicks' delivery of "Rhiannon" was a high point) plus some tunes slated to appear on its forthcoming album ("You Can Go Your Own Way"), & threw in for balance classics like "The Green Manalishi," "Oh Well" & "Spare Me a Little." Rhythm pattern changes within songs were very effective & the tempo on many of the songs had been stepped up. The live versions of songs like "Station Man" & "Blue Letter" (the set closer) made the recorded versions seem pale.

Brian Auger & the Oblivion Express (reviewed Nov. 1) were moderately pleasing in opening the show.

Question That's interesting...

Hmm, does that mean Lindsey wrote GYOW when he and Stevie were still together, or did they break up earlier than I thought? For some reason, I always thought 1976 was the big year everybody got divorced.

Confusing, ain't it?

As is typical of any aspect of their lives, reports from the five of them over the past 30 years or so are conflicting. In a radio interview in 1980, Stevie said that she & Lindsey were breaking up when they joined Fleetwood Mac, but the newfound success with the group later that year sort of sidetracked their impending split. You could argue, I suppose, that GYOW isn't strictly speaking a breakup song, or at least not a "we already broke up" song.
