Last night’s Fleetwood Mac concert at the Canadian Tire Centre was in one word: EPIC! These rock icons did not disappoint and played every tune you would want to hear live and then some. Now that I have seen them live I have a new appreciation for the level of talent in that band. Most impressive was watching Lindsay Buckingham whale on the guitar, man can he play!
The highlight for me was a set where the band was stripped right down. It started with Buckingham and just his guitar playing a passionate and intense Big Love followed by and great rendition of Landslide with just Stevie Nicks and Buckingham onstage followed by and emotional Never Going Back Again. I could have left after that and been satisfied.
Their live Tusk performance gets an honorable mention. It was two and a half hours of non-stop music with 2 encores! Twenty-four songs and high energy you could feel even as everyone left the arena.
If you haven’t seen them and they come around again, do yourself a solid and go see them.
