My one and only FM or solo artist concert was the aforementioned craziness in Alex's post... it was too much fun. I had a cold and wound up with laryngitis, but you better believe I was up and singing full force! Of course, I had to work the next day and wound up going to tables sounding like I had tuberculosis. Ew. Anyway, I also got to meet Jasmit and her friends that day, who were really cool and OH MY GOD I STILL HAVE NOT SENT HER HER COPY OF TRIAD JASMIT I AM A VERY VERY BAD LEDGIE AND I WILL DO THAT I PROMISE! Um yeah. We were the only 2 ledgies who wound up at the same McDonald's. Hee hee. At the end of the night, after we met Alex, we hung out by the limos (we were like 100ft away and they were down an incline) and they tried to trick us by sending out a "dummy" limo, but that didn't work for us die hards So finally, Stevie and Cheryl came out and we were some of the first people to see them and waved and when they drove by Stevie was on our side and she saw us and waved back! Here's the funny part... She was staring at my boyfriend! LOL! Probably just a coincidence, but we may have scared the crap out of her with the "look-alike"!

Where and when did you first see FM or any member of FM live in concert?
My first Mac concert was in Providence, RI on Nov 22 1979. It was Thanksgiving night.

Where and when did you last see FM or any member of FM live in concert?
The last Fleetwood Mac concert was on 9/20/97 in Boston Mass at Great Woods.
The last Stevie show was the AHI benefit in Phoenix on Dec 6,2001. I had front row.

Please share any particularly cool moments in concert that you have experienced.
Well, the most exciting thing that happened was in Worcester Mass on 9/15/82. I got to meet Stevie backstage at the Worcester Centrum after a Mac concert.

I saw them first time ~get this~ 4th row in Indy!!! and I had the exact same seats for TISL too!! Oh wow! Thats SOOOOOO strange!! And I knew I could shake her hand on the TISL tour because I had 4 th row, and I was rather depressed when it was cancelled, but I got all of my money back from the broker.

And even stranger... I got 11th row in Ohio!!

What a trip, Angela! What part of Indy are you in??

How weird is THAT?!?! LOL!! I'm not from Indy, actually...I'm from Kentucky...but FM/Stevie NEVER come here , so I had to go to the nearest place I could find! lol. We had ALMOST the exact same seats for TISL that we had for the Dance, lol...they were like two seats down And the stupid broker we got the tickets from did NOT refund my money...not even the purchase price of the ticket...SO, he made LOTS of $$$ off of THOSE tickets. (Can I post his name here? lol...well, his initials are BEWARE people ) But it all turned out for the good, cause the seats at the Nashville show were great...even if I didn't get to go up and shake her hand!!'s too bad we didn't know each other, lol...that would've been cool to have met up!!

Well my first one was last year, July 18, in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio for Stevie's tour. I had 12th row, dead center, seats. It was sooooo amazing!!!! I sang to EVERY song and didn't sit once.

The last one I've been to was Stevie's AHI Benefit concert last December in Phoenix, Arizona. My seat wasn't as good, but it was still an awesome show. Except for when one the ushers told me I had to sit down. I couldn't believe it. How the hell can you sit down at a concert??!!!! People were even still sitting during Stand Back and Edge of Seventeen, I just couldnt do it.

First of all...any of you that saw FM in the '70's - i bow to you! i'm not worthy...i would kill to have seen them then...i have so many tapes from that era (in boxes) and i just wish i was born about ten years younger! i first saw stevie at Alpine Valley, WI on 5-31-86...first concert ever...i saw her three weeks later at Poplar Creek, IL on 6-21-86 )(the 'cloaks and daggers' live bootleg cd was recorded there). I was in awe both times...i had been a fan for about 4 years at that point. i'm glad i got to see her at that point being it was the last tour she was partying a bit...i was 16 and i didn't really notice anything crazy except she was spinning a bit and quite chatty with the audience and really seemed to have a good time (now we know why! =) )

i first saw FM in LA on 12-7-87 and it was a really long concert and really good despite Lindsey's absence.

I last saw Stevie at PNC in Jersey in, I think July (?) 2001...good show despite the loss of "Outside the Rain" =( although i did see her in Hartford, CT a few weeks before then when she did the whole set - YAY! The thing i remember about that show was 'fall from grace'...her performance was vintage Stevie without a doubt...during the verses '...and now alone in my room as it all begins again...' she had both hands on her head with her eyes closed and her chiffon draping and she looked VERY intense..very 'sisters of the moon'....which, i hope they do one more time! Fat chance i'm sure =(

i live just north of nyc about 50 miles so it's cool cause i can go to about 4 shows ( NY, NJ, CT - without travelling very far) everytime FM or Stevie come around...Can't wait!

By the way, i've moved around quite a bit that's why all the various shows i saw were all over the place!

My first FM concert was way back in 1990 during the BTM tour and it was great eventhouhg Lindsey wasn't there anymore.

I never had the chance to see Stevie live.

The last time FM was during the Time tour, they played in a small concerthall near the place I live. My dad got me the tickets because a mate of his organized it.

The last member I saw was Rick Vito who played with John Fogerty when he opened for Tina Turner two years ago, it was awsome.

Bye, LOL

It was in '97, opening date for The Dance tour @ HArtford. I was 11 then, and sitting to the right of the stage. I remember 'The Chain" and "Second Hand News" the most. It was great. I bought a t-shirt of the White album. Before we got there they had a radio station playing all FM songs.
