Exclamation Trivia Question

I was listening to Sirius-Xm The Bridge this morning and Stevie came on doing another one of her promos. She was talking about the early days with Fleetwood Mac. She said that after she joined the Mac, Fleetwood Mac only opened for two other bands.
Can you name the bands?
(note: many times Stevie is wrong with her facts. I did not vet her answer)

One was Peter Frampton, the other I don't remember, and I don't remember if there were more.

in Mick's first book, didn't he describe them opening for Loggins and Messina during their first tour with new lineup?

Loggins and Messina and Ten Years After.
It's not what she was alluding to but didn't the Time band open for the likes of Crosby Stills and Nash?

Since she was talking about the White Album Tour I remembered this quote:

What was the best advice you received when you were starting out?

Well, I didn’t know any rock stars until I joined Fleetwood Mac. When we met them in 1975 I ran right out and got their six or seven records and listened to all of them so I would have some idea of who they were and what they did. So as far as people giving us advice, we didn’t have anybody to give us advice. Everyone was just as crazy as we were, or crazier, really, because anyone that we did meet on the road or opening for, they were more famous than us. We never really got to talk to anybody. If we were opening for Peter Frampton, we barely got to say “hello” as he was on his way to his limo.


And in fact Fleetwood Mac were the opening act for Peter Frampton on the “Day On The Green” festival in 1976, however I don't remember if they opened for him other times.

Answer: According to Stevie the Mac only opened for Loggins and Messina and The Eagles. The Eagles shows were only one or two dates in stadiums.

Fleetwood Mac opened for Jefferson Starship for (I believe) the entire tour during the fall of 1975. This was Fleetwood Mac's first tour with the new lineup.

And wasn't Wild Heart Tour a co-bill with Joe Walsh? So long ago... Memory fading... At least I still have the T-shirt!
