I wasn’t sold on seeing Fleetwood Mac again straight away – which is to say I was real happy for anyone that was planning to go, but I’d seen them and even if it wasn’t with Christine it was with Lindsey! (And I’m Team Lindsey all the way). But I’m also a Neil Finn fan and wanted to see how he would integrate. I knew he’d do a good job. But it really was amazing.
I flew up for some work that timed with the gig and a mate bought me a ticket and I was about to pay him back he said not to worry about it, to get him back some other time. BONUS!
And what a fucking gig too! I wrote most of what I needed to say about it right there. But it was absolutely one of the greatest shows of the year for me. Admittedly, I’m a massive Mac fan. But it was easily the best of the three times I’ve seen Mick Fleetwood perform. I reckon having Neil in the band made him up his game. Big time.
Stubs is an occasional feature here at Off The Tracks – looking back through the ticket-stub box and remembering how the show went down.
