The sad thing is I’ve been going to concerts for … UGH! 47 years? Not so often these days – it has to be someone really special …. like the inimitable Fleetwood Mac. The great thing is … I still love going to concerts.
Hubby, daughter, her work friend and I went on July 6 to their last US date on their current tour. Amazing! They are still so full of music and energy and enthusiasm – it was everything a concert experience should be: A blend of their old, familiar hits as Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks performing her unforgettable songs, Lindsey Buckingham‘s amazing guitar work, Mick Fleetwood‘s amazing drumming and incredible drum solos… AND a few cuts from the NEW CD coming out soon – with all new material!
And two and a half hours of non-stop, no break, no opening act music interspersed with engaging conversation with the audience. Wish there’d been more Sacramento performances – I would have gone to every one, I’m afraid.
Highlight? A friend sitting on the floor, seven rows back, got this wonderful photo of Stevie Nicks …. not bad for a camera phone! She still looks amazing for being 65 ….
Is this not SO and TOTALLY the wonderful, magical Stevie?
And so as I relish in the memories of a fabulous concert –
Namaste, Stevie Nicks – you ROCK!
