We were trying to find the last time Stevie went for some of the higher notes in Gypsy, and The Dance was the example, before she lowered a few lines of the song for the Say You Will Tour. That's what I meant by the comment.

He's been doing that all the time for all the tours. He never leaves the stage (well, until the encores).

Man, during the Dance, Mick would be by himself for his solo. Then, at the end Lindsey would get up from the side of the stage and kind of "chase" Mick back to his drum kit, strumming forcefully on his guitar as Mick backed away and then Christine would come from backstage and take her place at the piano and John would return and start working the bass again and they'd all resume playing Not That Funny, one by one, it was like a burst of power. Like the pot had been on simmer and comes roaring back to boil. I really enjoyed that.

"I would have said 79 but I'm going with your 82" Stevie says at the conclusion of SOTM to a fan in the audience. Hoping she'll quote it correctly from here on out.

Time Out Chicago, April 19, 2013
Posted in #Chicago blog by Brent DiCrescenzo on Apr 19, 2013

Last weekend, the Mac attacked the United Center. Buckingham, Nicks, Fleetwood and McVie (John, that is; Christine hasn't toured with the group in ages) speed-plucked and harmonized through their back catalog of California radio gold. They're sporting a couple of new tunes, too.

In case you missed it: Some of our favorite local musicians selected their favorite Fleetwood Mac songs for us. Check out the deep cuts dug by Kelly Hogan, John Stirratt of Wilco and more. Hogan never fails to deliver a killer anecdote. Love her.

Chicago Now, January 26, 2013 By Teppi Jacobsen

Fleetwood Mac at the United Center or I had my tickets until I was scammed

http://www.chicagonow.com/when-you-p...s-scammed-123/


To the person that conned me into paying $440 for four Fleetwood Mac tickets:

I really thought you were legit. I wanted to believe that since you were pretty "normal" when you responded to my Craigslist request to find tickets that I would actually get them. I've purchased tickets through Craigslist before and always gotten them. So, when you responded, I thought WOW, this is amazing.

What you don't understand, now that I have figured out that I will never get those tickets is just how much I wanted to see them. For many reasons. In 1977 when I was in college I frequented a bar in Palatine called Durty Nellies. It was a great place for college kids to hang and holds many fun memories for me. I remember one night standing by the jukebox and hearing a song called Monday Morning". It was from a newer band called Fleetwood Mac. I was instantly hooked.

I saw them in concert later that year and was mesmerized. Loved them. I still loved them years later. In 2003 I saw them at the Allstate Arena. They were even better than they were in 1977, kinda like a fine wine that had aged so well.

I'll never forget that concert because that was around the last time my life was normal. Four weeks after that I was diagnosed with cancer and I recall that concert as the last fun event of my life "BC" (before cancer). I can still envision Lindsey Buckingham killing it on his guitar singing "Looking out for love". Crazy Good. Stevie Nicks voice as clear as a bell singing "Landslide". I am kinda nerdy like that. Music means so much to me; I relate songs and groups to times of my life.

So here I was, offered 4 tickets to the concert this coming April and great seats to boot! You were very patient while I waited to see who would go with me. My daughters were so excited as when they were little girls we enjoyed watching their concert "The Dance" on PBS. We had formed a kick line and danced to "Don't Stop Thinking About tomorrow". So I would take them, what a night I was looking forward to!!!

You requested I pay you through paypal and that gave me the comfort that you were on the level. You answered every email I sent prior to the purchase within seconds. Funny, once I paid for the tickets you haven't answered me at all about mailing them. The fact is there are no tickets and they will never be mailed. You're pretty savvy; you know that you'll get your money and that if I'm lucky and can prove I was scammed I'll get my money back through paypal. I'm sure you see that as a win win. Wrong. I still have no tickets.

I was willing to pay a good deal to see them because they are a part of my past that I hold very dear. You have ruined that for me. I am out $440 and now I am too wary to try Craigslist again. Tickets have been long sold out and until I get my money back I can't afford to buy more.

I hope that people reading this will be careful to not fall into the same trap. I thought I was smart enough to smell a scam. Silly me. I'm just another sucker that fell for it and let my emotions take over my sensibility. I so wanted to see them. I so still do. So you managed to really screw this pooch so to speak. I can only hope that what goes around will come around.

Lindsey and Stevie, I'm not giving up.

June 15, 2013 Chicago Now

http://www.chicagonow.com/when-you-p...-see-them-123/

Fleetwood Mac in Chicago: why it was so important I see them

Back in January I wrote about how I was scammed buying tickets to see Fleetwood Mac. I was sad. I was mad. I was everything you can imagine. All over a band you say? Sure, there are more important things in the world than seeing a concert. But this one meant a lot to me.

I never did get tickets to the concert at The United Center in April. However, the demand for them was so high that they added a second concert at the Allstate Arena last night. I was fortunate - I got tickets. And I did it through Ticketmaster. Not some low life scam artist on Craigslist.

And if I may say the concert was worth twice what I paid and then some I'm not exaggerating. It was that good. For so many reasons on so many levels.

Music is as important to me as breathing. Well, maybe not that important but you get the picture. It defines my life, stages of it and where I may have been at any given time. It transcends words. This particular band has spent thirty five years with me, singing to me, creating moments that are unforgettable.

When I saw the band for the first time in 1977 I was with my best friend at the United Center which was still at that time, The Chicago Stadium. Last night as I enjoyed the concert with my grown daughters and husband, that friend was at home waiting for her daughter to go into labor. She is becoming a grandmother. There was a certain irony to this as Stevie Nicks sang "Landslide". She sang of getting older. We also had a friend years ago that claimed she wrote the song and I chuckled to myself as it was performed.

I had written in my previous blog about how seeing them in 2003 was the last normal thing I did before I was diagnosed with cancer. So, to be there last night ten years later alive and well was overwhelming. Particularly to be with my girls who I could share the evening with and enjoy it so much together.

Whenever an evening can take me back to my youth I embrace it. I marveled at the band who despite all being in their sixties performed like they did in 1977. Even better than that. Seasoned, perfected performances.

One of the main things that really struck me last night was the overall feeling in the Arena. It was electric. It was emotional. Maybe I'm being dramatic, I don't know. But tell me that watching this wouldn't get you shaking your head asking "wow, how does he do that?"

(Can't figure out how to upload my own video but this is what I witnessed last night, even better)

It was also something to see the relationship between Stevie Nicks and Buckingham. Knowing the back story of their tumultuous time together and them putting that all behind them was a testament to what time can do for all of us, it can heal. They closed the concert with this song, "Say Goodbye". Buckingham explained he wrote it as a way to come to terms with things that happened in the past and make way for the future. Again, I did not video this last night but the performance was just as good.

When the concert ended, each member said a few words. It was Nicks who put it into the words I couldn't think of. That here we were 35 years after their album "Rumours" came out and embracing each song as if it were the first time we'd heard it.

For me, being alive ten years after cancer made hearing those songs all that much more special. And seeing the happiness in that room, in the midst of a crazy messed up world, priceless.

Thanks Ticketmaster, for not scamming me.
