I had the pleasure of seeing Fleetwood Mac in Salt Lake CIty, Utah Wednesday, June 3rd. At first I didn't think I was going to get to go, but I made it and I had an awesome time and enjoyed the show so much. Stevie was so beautiful. Mick was fantastic on the drums. Lindsey was awesome and John was just fabulous. Sharon, Jana and Lori were beautiful. It was a really great night.
I don't want to sound like a crazed fan, but I want to express the way Stevie makes me feel. I've been listening to Stevie since I was in 5th or 6th grade I'm 38 now so it's been a long time. She's been with me through a tough/abusive childhood. She's been there through rocky relationships, 18 years of being a single parent and through loosing everyone that I love. My parents, siblings, and my much loved uncle are gone now. She's always there to lift me up and get me through. She's beautiful inside and outside. I appreciate everything she's given me with her music and her beauty.
Thank you, Stevie. You are wonderful!
Certain things catch your eye,
But pursue only those
that capture your heart.
WOW, I literally JUST walked in my front door from the SLC show. Journalistically, I want to write this perfect review of this concert, however, I am too excited, so instead, I am going to write a FABULOUS review.
The night was perfect. My friend and I had Floor 1 row 5, but by the time the lights when out and I saw everyone running to the stage, I quickly made my way there, as well. I went straight for Stevie's mic. I've been a fan since I was a little girl, I've seen her on the TISL tour, but I was so far back that she didn't seem real. Tonight was a different story. I was standing right below her, my arms resting on the stage, she was literally inches away.
Stevie is TINY, you guys! I've seen her on countless interviews and concerts on tv, but you really can't tell how amazing she looks until you see her up close and personal. She is just SO petite and beautiful. Her makeup was flawless, her dresses flowing, and her shawls sparkling. She definitely lives up to the gypsy she so loves. Oh, and the top hat during "Go Your Own Way" was really fun.
Lindsey Buckingham is BRILLIANT! He was all over the stage, bending down, getting super close with all of us, letting people play his guitar, it was SO much fun. I'm pretty sure we made eye contact, seriously. During "Landslide", Stevie walked over to Lindsey and put her arm around his neck and seemed to be whispering something to him and then he kissed her head. SO cute! Y'all, Mick is HILARIOUS! I loved getting to see his "balls" that hang from his pants, it cracks me up. His drum solo during "World Turning" was super exciting, he was yelling some crazy stuff out to the crowd and we all just cheered him along. "Rhiannon" has always been my favorite song and Stevie ROCKED THIS! She was so on at the ending with the "take my like the wind, child", she was like back in the 70s all over again. It was a little more raw than normally and I LOVED that.
Overall, this qualifies as the best day of my life, EVER, ha. They were amazing. OH, and can't forget John, OH how I love dear John. He's not a talker, but he's one heck of a bassist and he was great. Just finally seeing them all on one stage made a memorable night. SO, if you are contemplating getting tickets, I highly recommend paying a little extra for floor seating because it's all worth it. Did I ever think I'd be standing right in Stevie's face? no, I could only dream. But it was a dream come true and I'll always remember this night as being on of the most special times of my life. Stevie's voice and lyrics are both loving and haunting all at the same time. She is a true poet....."...and a heartbeat that never really dies..."
Wow what a night I was lucky enough to go to the show in Las Vegas on May 30th, but the Salt Lake City show was even that much better, 5th row seats on Lindsey’s side. This was my fourth time seeing the Mac live and every time it seems they sound better and better. I took my good friend Cathy with me tonight, it was her first time seeing the Mac live we rocked out all night, we had a great time. Lindsey had so much energy on stage tonight he had the crowd on their feet all night. He has got to be the greatest guitar player that has ever played, his solos during “Go Your Own Way”, “I’m So Afraid” and the acoustic version of “Big Love” were simply amazing. Stevie sounded as beautiful as ever and looked amazing. “Storms” “Gypsy” and “Stand Back” were highlights tonight, every song they played sounded great. I can’t wait to see them again someday soon. Stevie, Lindsey, Mick and John thank you for such a great night. I will never forget this night in Salt Lake City. Your music is simply amazing please Don’t Stop. Keep on rockin.
