3 am Tampa post show thoughts

I really hope someone filmed the intro to Landslide. Stevie making fun of her own chattiness during intros/dedications was hilarious.

Pretty sure that was the best Gold Dust Woman I’ve ever seen. “You can’t fix me, you can’t (fake?) me, you can’t take me, you can’t save me…”

Silver Springs kicked ass.

During a LB intro my friend said she feels like she’s in a lab and so I jokingly called Lindsey Professor Buckingham. About two songs later Stevie says something like “Lindsey and his ‘professic’ way of speaking” and I almost died.

I like how Stevie pretty much went for a stroll thru the park during NGBA. When she was approaching lb, some lady yelled “get him, Stevie!” This caused Stevie much amusement and she was holding back laughter which resulted in the cutest half smile.

My throat hurts from screaming and my calves hurt from jumping but it would be quite alright if every night I got to hang out beneath Stevie’s mic.

I luh her lots.

That's hilarious.

Yep. Loved those moments. I teared up during Silver Springs. Imo, that was the best live at-the-show version I've ever heard/experienced. It felt transcendent.

I loved the beginning of Landslide when Lindsey was waiting for Stevie, and they had a false start and then started laughing and Stevie did a little dance and she and Lindsey had some real unscripted banter. I love their candid moments. They are few and far between.

Highlights:
Silver Springs
Gold Dust Woman
Stand Back
Eyes of the World
Sisters of the Moon--While Stevie's voice doesn't soar the way it used to on this one, it was nice to hear live for the first time in my life ever. I just wish she had tried to make the choruses a little more dramatic. That song is all about drama and darkness.

Still unsure about how I feel about Sad Angel, and if they were going to do a BN song, they should've done Frozen Love. Without You does not showcase the greatness that is BN. I know they performed it because of the new EP, but still, it was kind of boring live.

Lindsey rocked my socks off. I realized how much I miss hearing him and watching his charismatic stage presence with Fleetwood Mac. This was the best FM show I've seen since 2003. They are in top form right now and I hope to hear the rest of those new songs Lindsey was talking about last night. Put an album out now!

Fleetwood Mac shows why their popularity endures at Tampa show

BY Carl Lisciandrello TBO.com staff Published: June 8, 2013
The Tampa Tribune
http://tbo.com/arts_music/fleetwood-...show-20130607/

TAMPA - Their fans may have been quite a bit younger when Fleetwood Mac hit the charts with one of music history's most renowned works some 40 years ago.

But the years have been kind for the '70s rock icons, who showed a nearly packed house of 14,071 at the Forum on Friday night why their popularity not only endured, but has attracted a new generation of loyalists.

Even the most casual fan could sense the close connection between Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, back together and promoting "Extended Play" - their first release in 10 years.

Fleetwood Mac told poignant, compelling stories within their lyrics. They opened up on stage, offering an important glimpse into the very personal side of why this foursome remains so ingrained in the spotlight.

Specifically, the connection between Buckingham and former girlfriend, Nicks, became apparent as the duo shared a hug following "Sara."

That propelled Buckingham into an introduction of "Big Love," in which he explained how this was a song about transition, contemplation and meditation that illustrated the "importance of change" - clearly an ode to his former romantic relationship with Nicks. What followed was an inspired acoustic solo that brought the crowd to its feet.

Nicks then gave a shout-out to a pair of friends before she and Buckingham paired on an emotional "Landslide."

The pair remained on stage as they recounted their journey to Los Angeles and introduction to the band in 1970. They told of a song on which they collaborated even before they knew of Fleetwood Mac, which had been "stolen" but was found online in 2011. "Without You," the primary vehicle in the new four-song EP, was a sweet duet that deftly showed the closeness they have maintained as they transitioned from romantic couple to close friends.

While they interacted and shared playful glimpses throughout the night, even holding hands twice to the crowd's delight as they returned to the stage, the show allowed the individual artists to spotlight their considerable talents.

Nicks, whose soulful voice belies her 65 years, set the stage by opening with a playful "Second Hand News" and spirited "The Chain."

She mesmerized with "Gold Dust Woman," emerging with a gold wrap and floating across the stage in one of her recognizable solo dances which she repeated during "Gypsy."

Nicks may be the recognizable face of the band, but Buckingham reminded fans of his considerable talent and why Fleetwood later introduced him as "our leader and inspiration."

Buckingham's guitar prowess was on full display during "I'm So Afraid" and "Go Your Own Way," and he set the tempo throughout as the band performed hit after hit from "Rumours," the 1975 album that launched them to stardom.

Fleetwood had his best moment during "World Turning," the first encore in which he toyed with the audience and launched into a drum solo that helped him work up a sweat and work the crowd into a frenzy.

But the band saved their most emotional moments for last. Nicks and Buckingham, again hand-in-hand, came out alone for a final encore that began with Nicks' heartfelt "Silver Springs" and ended with Buckingham sharing his philosophical thoughts on "discarding illusions in order to grow" and embracing "acceptance, faith and resolve" as they concluded with "Say Goodbye."

Hopefully for their fans, this wasn't a goodbye, but just a "so long" as they look ahead to the next great story in their legendary collaboration.

Tampa Bay Times June 7, 2013 by Jay Cridlin

http://www.tampabay.com/features/fle...pa-bay/2125589

Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks walked onstage Friday at the Tampa Bay Times Forum hand in hand, like the oldest of friends in the world.

Then, for the next eight songs, the onetime lovers didn't interact. Not even a little. Not a nod. Not a glance. Certainly nothing as intimate as skin-to-skin contact.

Could there be a better encapsulation of the Fleetwood Mac experience?

Thirty-six years after Rumours, the definitive breakup album of the 20th century — yeah, I said it — the interpersonal conflict that drove Fleetwood Mac to its greatest creative heights remains an integral part of its mystique and eternal appeal. Fans with a ticket to a Fleetwood Mac show expect not only decades of indelible pop hits, they expect a taste of the drama that begat them.

The band knows this. Which is why Nicks and Buckingham waited until that ninth song — Sara, a slithering meditation on rancor and reconciliation among lovers — to look each other eye to eye, to edge in each other's direction, to share a microphone and, finally, to embrace.

Such is the choreography of a modern Fleetwood Mac show. Whatever dysfunction once festered between Nicks, Buckingham, gregarious drummer/mascot Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie — John's ex, retired singer-songwriter Christine, hasn't toured with the band in years — it hasn't stopped them from delivering the goods live.

Buckingham, for example, remains one of the most dynamic guitarists on the planet. He's played a couple of smaller solo shows in Tampa Bay since 2011, but on the big stage, his fingerpicking wizardry on the tomahawking Tusk, buzzsawing Big Love and incendiary I'm So Afraid is breathtaking to behold.

The free-spirited Nicks seems to get a little loopier with every tour — she laughed off some good-natured ribbing from Buckingham when they failed to connect on the opening notes of Landslide — but she remains an enchanting presence behind the mic, whether dusting blond strays from her eyes on Dreams or twirling in a silken tornado on Stand Back.

Fleetwood Mac's hit-packed sets don't change all that much, but they did throw in a couple of long-lost favorites, such as the bouncy folk ditty Without You, a Buckingham-Nicks demo lost for years before it surfaced online, and which appears on the band's new Extended Play EP.

And then there was Sisters of the Moon, a driving rocker from 1979's Tusk that Nicks said hasn't been performed regularly since 1981. Between Nicks' incantatory moan and Buckingham's furious power chords, it was a great example of the push-and-pull sexual tension that brought 14,071 fans to see them interact.

After Don't Stop and Silver Springs, Buckingham and Nicks closed with the acoustic, heartfelt duet Say Goodbye, and then a hug and a kiss at center stage.

How could they not? Dysfunction may be Fleetwood Mac's meal ticket. But it's one they can't cash in without love.

^I do not believe that Lindsey and Stevie did not share a nod or glance during the first eight songs.

Nice to hear SOTM described as a driving rocker.

Stevie took a long time dedicating landslide to an old high school friend who lives in the area, and another lady she met last year while on vacation in Key West, Fl who apparently worked at the hotel where the band was staying. She was also joking around how she just walked down the streets of Key West as Myself..Stevie Nicks. Cute as could be. Anyways, Lindsey thought she was done talking and started Landslide. She had to turn and stop him because she had more to say.
As for the show I can honestly say I have not seen this much passion from the band since The Dance film or perhaps further back in 82. My friends used words like "Amazing", "Incredible" for the show. We all loved it.
The sound was just perfect. I'd say they were having a great time, perhaps the day off before and knowing they had 2 days before Atlanta..IDK but there was something special about the show. Great crowd also, lots of young people.

Thanks! My bad. I was pretty exhausted after the drive home. I work with a female Lindsay and see the name everyday...but still no excuse, after being a fan since the late 70's I should be able to spell Lindsey Buckingham correctly.

Concert review: Fleetwood Mac at Tampa Bay Times Forum

2:29 p.m. EDT, June 6, 2013
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/enter...post?track=rss

There are a few Fleetwood Mac biographies already out there, but at least one member of the beloved 1970s hit-making band believes that the story isn’t over yet.

“You would think that there would be nothing left to discover,” singer-guitarist Lindsey Buckingham said of Fleetwood Mac’s long history early in the band’s generous concert on Friday for a packed house at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. “But it seems there are a few chapters left in the book of Fleetwood Mac.”

Musically, it’s obvious that Buckingham, singer Stevie Nicks, bassist John McVie and drummer Mick Fleetwood aren’t ready to turn the final page.

In a hit-laden two hours and 40 minutes, they offered signature songs with drop-the-needle-on-the-record precision, showcased promising new songs and, most impressively, embraced music and audience with more emotion than one would think possible after almost four decades.

It’s a chatty bunch.

Nicks, in particular, was prone to rambling (if endearing) recollections about bygone days. She introduced the obligatory “Landslide” with a lengthy dedication to two “strong” women in her life: One was a high school classmate who now lives in Tampa; the other, a woman who ran the hotel where Nicks stayed this past fall in the Florida Keys.

When she had finished, she turned and shared a laugh with Buckingham, standing next to her waiting to start the song with his acoustic guitar: “He just said to me, ‘You’re done, right?’”

Buckingham was equally talkative, reflecting on the music business, the band’s “Tusk” album and how his feelings about songs such as “Big Love” have changed over the years.

That song offered one of the many opportunities for Buckingham to display his unique guitar technique, a combination of power and finesse that peaked in the explosive extended guitar solo of “I’m So Afraid.”

Vocally, Buckingham and Nicks harmonized with unconscious ease on “The Chain,” “Rhiannon,” “Never Going Back Again” and “Sara,” a song that concluded with the two singers in a long embrace.

Behind them, McVie provided an understated foundation and Fleetwood kicked off songs such as the opening “Second Hand News” with unmistakable rhythm figures.

In the end, after an encore that included “Don’t Stop” and “Silver Springs,” Fleetwood joined the procession of lingering band members to talk – yet again -- about their feelings for the music and fans.

With all those words, there’s obviously another chapter for Fleetwood Mac.

I was at the show. It was the BEST I've ever seen Fleetwood Mac. I've seen The Dance (they seemed tired - I saw them in Buffalo) - Say You Will in Tampa (Stevie seemed bitchy - it really seemed her and Lindsey weren't getting along - there were obvious unhappy looks) and Unleashed in Tampa (going through the motions).

Last night - it was the band as I'd never seen them before. Lindsey and Stevie's solo projects really really did rejuvenate them. It's not just a spiel they are giving to the press. They seemed very alive and very on fire.

For the first time since The Dance, I didn't miss Christine either. The band was ferocious in a way they might not have been able to with Christine there. It was like they really WANTED to be there, and they were hungry again.

The best "Landslide" I've ever seen, one of the best "Dreams" I've ever seen. It was awesome seeing Lindsey having the time of his life shredding on "Stand Back" - cool to hear him doing the parts Waddy usually does and having a ball.

Stevie was especially and enchantress -- some really witchy and magical moments. She went into her soft "Lady From The Mountain" voice during the end of "Gold Dust Woman" - doing the improv mentioned above like I'd never seen her before.

At the end of "Sara" she started singing "...and the wind became crazy..." and I fell in love again.

You could hear a pin drop during most of "Say Goodbye" . It was cool being in that huge venue and just having the acoustic guitar, and those two legendary voices.

I loved that the show opened with "Second Hand News" instead of "The Chain" - it set the pace for a more energetic and shredding show. I've never seen Lindsey strut, rock out, and show that much passion onstage with the modern version of The Mac.

Stevie rambled more like in her solo shows, which I loved. Overall, it's like Stevie and Lindsey brought all the learned and loved about their solo stuff into the Mac. For the first time ever, instead of their solo careers being a threat or distraction from the Mac, it felt like the solo ventures only fueled and added to the fire.

Best show ever. Pure magic.
