Just got back from seeing the Mac yet again...enjoyed their incredible show in Los Angeles just 10 days ago and had to see them again tonight at home in Milwaukee. As everyone mentions, the show is AMAZING...Lindsey is a guitar master and put every ounce of himself into the full 2.5 hours, Stevie sounded even better than in LA and seemed to really enjoy herself, Mick is always Mr. Energy and brings down the house, and John is the rock of the rhythm section. The set of songs is just incredible...I have seen them every tour since Tusk in 1980 and this is by far the best set...I only wish we all didn't miss Christine McVie so much. It's fun to see Landslide, Go Your Own Way and Don't Stop becoming 10 - 15,000 person sing-a-longs! As a die hard who knows the lyrics to every song, I loved "I Know I'm Not Wrong" and "Storms" from Tusk...very special treats. Thanks to Fleetwood Mac for sharing their talent with all of us... their music continues to inspire us and keep us going through the trials and tribulations of life...from when we were just teenagers to now (in our 40s!), they are able to make it all ok. Thanks guys for another fantastic show...Now I am thinking I need to find another show to attend, as 2 of this set is just not enough :-)
I attended the Mac show last night in Milwaukee and what a show it was! First off, the venue was acoustically incredible. The show started at 8:15 sharp. No changes in the set list. Stevie was vocally incredible. This was my third show and her voice was the best yet. She made mention about the weather and how she thought they may not have made the show in time. She thought the next song was appropriate for the storms in the area and Dreams followed. She dedicated Lanslide to a guy she said she knew since she was 15... (Steve) and that if it wasn't for him inspiring her to write, she may have never been doing all this. Lindsey played incredibly as always and patted himself on the back every single chance he had. Oh well. Oh, that was in the set also. Mick was in rare form on the drums and I have to say is soooo well spoken when he does talk. John McVie, he is a very special man. So quiet, so unpretentious but ohhhh soooo powerful on bass. He is a true gem and a major contribution to Fleetwood Mac. Stevie didn't wear the platforms. It was Reeboks all night which in my eye is ok. I like the fact that she's still up there doing her thing and doing it so well. Stand Back was really good and her spins were fast and long! She smiled proudly after that. Gold Dust Woman was HAUNTING last night. Deep voice at the end when she says "Running in the Shadow". Incredible. Silver Springs. Her voice didn't falter once during it and the drums were incredible. Can't say any more than it was such a special night. Thanks Fleetwood Mac.

My man & I went to the Fleetwood Mac show on June 8th, 2009 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee Wisconsin. And we were both enjoying the crap out of the show. Just awesome group. You get a feeling that you are finally enjoying yourselves on stage. Mac Fleetwood is just an awesome drummer. Unbelievable is Lindsey Buckingham & Stevie Nicks voice is better than ever. We would like to say to anyone who really cares. Thanks for coming back together again. We are fans since the early years. It really says something about the group to see at the show people our age(59 & 62) & their families & they were rocking Thanks for another memory.
JUST GOT BACK FROM THE SHOW IN MILWAUKEE, AND THEY WERE ON FIRE! THE SOUND WAS MUCH BETTER THEN WHEN I SAW THEM IN CHICAGO IN MARCH, AND I COULD NOT BELIEVE THE ENERGY. STEVIE HAD MUCH MORE ENERGY THEN SHE USUALLY DOES AND GOLD DUST WOMAN WAS ONE OF THE STANDOUTS!!!! LINDSEY AND JOHN AND MICK ROCKED THE HOUSE AS WELL. THE ONLY THING THAT WAS IRRITATING WAS WHEN THEY DID BAND INTRODUCTIONS, A BUNCH OF PEOPLE BOOED STEVIE. FIRST OFF THAT IS DISRESPECTFUL, AND LIKE HER OR HATE HER SHE IS THE BREAD AND BUTTER OF THAT GROUP. ALL AND ALL AN EXCELLENT SHOW AND WORTH EVERY PENNY!
Thank-you Fleetwood Mac!!!
I saw Fleetwood Mac at Alpine Valley, the Rumours Tour, Friday and Saturday's nights. Saturday night was better than Friday night and has always been my #1 concert. Saturday's show I saw glimpses of what I saw most of the night last night! If you bring your "Unleashed" tour to Alpine Valley yet, please do it in the Summer, our nights can get cool here in WI.
I'M AT A PARK 90 MILES WEST OF MILWAUKEE ON TOP OF A HILL, SITTING ON A NEW BENCH 50 YARDS FROM A STONE CHAPEL THAT WAS BUILT IN THE 1850'S. IT'S JUST AFTER 4PM TUESDAY JUNE 9TH 2009.

FIRST TO MY LEFT, TURNED AROUND CAME BACK PAST ME AND WENT BOUNCING, LEAPING BACK INTO THE WOODS!!! HOW COOL IS THAT? THE LORD'S EXPLANATION MARK TO ME!
