I think Brandi Carlile would be a tremendous Stevie substitute.

Paulette Carlson of Highway 101 would do a good job filling in for Stevie since she looks like her and sounds like her.

Eh, having a big generational gap won't work. See also: Bekka Bramlett. Hoffs is only nine years younger than Lindsey and had her biggest career success just before Tango. She's a contemporary of the band in terms of age and mainstream career timeline.

[From an article about bars in the downtown Lincoln area]

The Journal Star

http://journalstar.com/special-secti...7f1009061.html

ďThe Fleetwood Mac thing was great for us,Ē Mardock said. ďGenerally the older concert crowds go home when the shows are getting over at 11. When they only played an hour and a half, we had a lot of people come in and have a drink or two before they went home.Ē

Lincoln Journal Star 2015 round up 12/31/2015

http://journalstar.com/entertainment...b784276ad.html

Pinnacle Bank Arena -- Iím still waiting for Fleetwood Mac to return -- as Stevie Nicks promised from the stage -- after the legendary rock group cut its January show short when drummer Mick Fleetwood became ill. Iím also waiting for the arena to make it right, too. I wasnít expecting any kind of refund, but a complimentary concession item redeemed from my ticket that night or at another concert/athletic event would have gone a long way from a public relations standpoint.

So Stevie LIED. I suspected as much.



Like they couldn't afford to give even a 25% refund to all ticket holders.

I think nobody lied.All artists and bands say the same thing."We will be back next year"Or "We will make up the dates next year".

Time passes and other things come up.

Yes I feel bad for that audience. Not a great point on the tour. Though in their late 60s things like that are bound to happen from time to time.

I had a look at Madonna's current shows, and they are visually very impressive. She is in great shape. But I've read some horrendous stories about how late she often starts. Regularly 2-3 hours late on weeknights when people have to go to work the next day and may not be able to get transport after midnight. The seats aren't cheap either.

Reading those reviews totally put me off. I don't know if the shows are technically too ambitious, whether she takes longer these days to get prepared, or what.

The majority of the tour seemed to go very well for FM considering it was a three hour show, packed schedule that had even more dates added along the way. But I can understand that audience felt short changed and they should have been able to fill in with a substitute drummer for a bit longer, or had a contigency plan.

That is exactly what happened when I went to a Madonna concert. She came 2 1/2 hours late, did not even adress it while some people had to leave after 2 songs because of transportation mid-week in germany. So most people were angry, tired of waiting and really annoyed, or had to leave early. I had worked for 8 hours that day, drove 2 hours, waited 2 hours until the official start of the concert an stood there for another 2 1/2 hours in really loud techno music waiting for her, I was really to tired to enjoy her concert, let alone dance. I was back home at 3 in the morning, had to get up to work at 7. I payed good money to be tortured like this, thanks Madge!

Shame, the concert would have been great, good songs, fantastic dancers, everything top notch, Madonna is a good performer. 2 hours earlier, fans would have loved her, then, she was appreciated, that's all. The venue was full of middle aged people, to my suprise the average age was higher then at FM concerts, and noone was in any kind of party mood from what I saw.

And Madonna, with all her choreographed dancing, the immense physical strength and her larger than life attitude, can't compete with Stevie Nicks, who has so much more warmth, stage presence and intensity even when she simply stands behind a mic and waits for the next song to start.
