WOW - My husband and I saw the show on Saturday, September 27th in Bridgeport, CT and I am still in awe....getting chills when I hear Fleetwood Mac on the radio. What a performance! Stevie's voice is incredibly clear, soothing & haunting at the same time. I have only seen my husband get emotional a handful of times but when I looked at him during "Landslide" and saw tears streaming down his face, I could no longer hold my own tears back. The backdrop was beautiful, showing Stevie & Lindsay - they have come full circle!! "Gold Dust Woman" was inspiring to say the least....I can't remember the last time I stood for an entire show but I could not sit down, I had to stand and dance. When Stevie sang "Beautiful Child" her voice filled the arena and you could have heard a pin drop. There are are no words to describe it....you have to experience it for yourself to understand. Lindsay had fire flying from his fingers....man, can he play!!! From the crew to the band to the backup singers, THANK YOU - you made for an incredible night.

Saturday's concert at the Arena at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport, Connecticut was my second Fleetwood Mac concert on this tour. It had been 4 1/2 months since I last saw them in Albany, New York. While I loved the Albany concert, I thought Fleetwood Mac was even better in Bridgeport. Apparently after five months on the road, they have really gotten this show down pat and they really rocked. I was lucky enough to get seats in the second row, just in front of Stevie. Stevie looked beautiful as always and was just in perfect form. Lindsey, Mick and John were as good as ever. The highlight of the night for me was a mother and young daughter (maybe 8-10 years old?) were in the first row and stood right in front of Stevie. Stevie was flirting with the little girl all night. Just before "Say Goodbye", the little girl gave Stevie a little white bear with a NY Yankee's cap. Stevie took it and sang Say Goodbye with the bear in her hand the entire time. Later on, I think she invited the mother and daughter backstage. It was a great night I will always remember. If they ever invented a time machine, I'd want to go back and relive the experience of this show again and again.

Hi all! I just got home from Bridgeport. It was really great meeting so many from Mick's Chat... The show ROCKED... Far more than last May in Albany, which was the last time I saw them. Stevie Nicks is on fire. Lindsey Buckingham is on fire... What else can I say? A few highlights: Say You will was great. I got the biggest kick out of Stevie's lasso motions. Tons of hip action... It is so funny (In an awesome, sexy way.) You've gotta see this. Say Goodbye was nothing short of touching. They stared at each other the entire song. The harmonies are unbelievable. This was the tear jerker of the night. Stand Back. WOW!!!... Tusk was the highlight of the night for me. Lindsey started out prowling around the stage, threw his guitar down to the ground, headed toward Stevie and then made a sharp right and tusked John. Then he turned around toward Stevie again for "the boxing match".lol They did a couple rounds, gave up and slow danced for a while. WOW. It is so nice to see them "so close". If you didn't know any better, you'd swear they were still an item. At the begining of World Turning, I held up my BN album so Lindsey would see it. He immediately did, and acknowledged that he would sign it. After Don't Stop I held it up again and he came right over nelt down, and signed away. I am in awe of this band. Lindsey's guitar playing was flawless & I don't even know how to describe standing directly in front of him as he's letting loose on Come, GYOW, WT. OMG I LOVE seeing Stevie smile, and she sure did alot of it last night. She gave every song her all & was really, really into it. Rock on FM. See you next year...

The Fleetwood Mac Concert on Saturday, Sept. 27, was incredible!! Even Stevie stopped during the concert to comment on the audience - "You are a really great audience!" - and you could see she truely meant it! The entire audience was standing and grooving throughout - you could actually feel the eletricity in the arena! Stevie was very, very animated - plenty of hand movements, and twirling , as well as interaction with Lindsey. The concert lasted at least 2 1/2 hours - they didn't want to leave the stage - you could really tell it! Even though they were exhausted -Lindsey's white shirt was soaked through w/perspiration ... having attended their performance last May 27 at Worcester,MA Centrum I can tell you that the difference was unbelievable - they are sooo confortable w/each other now - they ARE ready for the WORLD !!! Good luck on the rest of the tour and God Bless!

The show was excellent!!! We had seats about 20 ft. from the stage and when the lights came on Stevie turned to us and was waving away! Lindsey & Stevie were electric. They were even slow dancing for a bit. Stevie had the crowd in her hands when she sang Landslide. It's been the 3rd time I've see them this tour and it keeps getting better and better! Rock on Stevie!

All I can say is that this is the best concert that I've gone to in a long time. Stevie was phenonmenal. When she sang Beautiful Child, I was almost in tears. Then, when she and Lindsay sang Landslide the crowd roared. And Lindsay, what can you say? He's the best!!! He played that guitar raw. He was awesome!! Mick came out and revved up the crowd more during World Turning. We were still singing and rocking to the beat long after the concert ended. Definetly in my opinion the best concert of the summer. Quoting Mick "THE MAC IS BACK!!!"

This is the third time we have seen Fleetwood Mac during this tour, they skipped Connecticut in the beginning so we went to Albany, NY, and Long Island to see them, which were great shows too. This show was at another new arena in Connecticut, which I have not been to before but it turned out to be a nice place with good sound. The band played the same song list as previous venues and they were more polished, probably due to being on the road for months. They were very tight on every song and Lindsey had just as much energy and showmanship as he had in the earlier shows we saw, while Stevie's voice was good in the beginning but it sounded very strong tonight. I wish she would put back the songs she dropped from the new album that she did in the first few shows, Running through the Garden and Destiny Rules because they are such great songs. She was pretty energetic too, she had a few twirls but when Stand Back started she was near Carlos and John and twirled like six times with her traditional shawl, she looked like a blond Goddess in a whirl wind or black and gold it was very cool. John was his cool usual self, standing next to the drums and Mick was Mick. He got his solo which is fun because he has such love for the stage and fans he gets the crowd going and then Lindsey comes out and does his thing with standing up to Mick's drums with his guitar and Lindsey went over to John to shake him up a little and then Lindsey took off his guitar and boxed a little with Stevie, which ended up with them in a nice embrace, which was not in the first two shows I saw. The crowd was very loud and enthusiastic, we sat at the back of the arena so not many people were standing but they were clapping, yelling and applauding with vigilance. The arena was basically sold out except for a few tickets but I didn't see an empty seat. They are very much the Rock and Roll band with loud great music and great guitar solos. I love their new album and think some of the songs are as great as some of the older greats. It's awesome that this band with such a long history continues to create great relevant music, and still wants to go out and play their music for their fans and blend one special night into a 30 plus years retrospective of their songs. I can't wait for the next album and tour.

This was probably the best show I've been to this tour. The arena was jammed packed with awesome fans--everyone was standing, dancing, and singing for as far as you could see--up and down. It was fabulous. To begin things, we were on ice--very literally, with the condensation coming up slowly from the floor. Luckily, once the Mac came on we were pretty much warmed up. I noticed that on the speakers and plugs--Lindsey's name is spelled incorrectly. How can that be? Mindy Stein came to talk to a few of us (early birds) on the front row before the show. She's so sweet. I had no idea she was performing so it was definitely a treat. Stevie was so full of energy! Very interactive tonight! She was so full of smiles--constantly waving and smiling, definitely having a good time. Thus, "The Chain" was awesome, and "Dreams" was fabulous. Nothing really changes with those two--very rehearsed. Lindsey does his usual 'Peacekeeper' speech--I always forget it's coming. It's lovely though. "Eyes of the World" is still such a fabulous song--much better live than the studio version will ever give it justice for. Stevie was all about this song--she was rocking and rolling all over the place. "Say You Will" is completely coreographed now. Seems like everyone has the movements down--the one more chance finger, the change your mind shaking hands , the outstretched healing hands, followed by the lasso dance. She walked over to Lindsey at one point and they sort of swayed together as he played and she played air guitar. Stevie improvised though--she was dancing, full body--all over it and I think she loves the audience participation. It was fabulous. Such a great song. I've never seen "Rhiannon" like I saw it Saturday night. Stevie was growling, twirling, hitting everything. If there would be a perfect example of what Rhiannon should song like---that was definitely it. I think she knew it too--or she felt our vibes because she just kept going, and going. Skipping around now--"Come" was amazing. It always is. Stevie's gone but Lindsey's rocking out--always singling out a girl or two (in this case, the girl right next to me) to sing it to. I think he broke a string or two jumping around the stage. He definitely knows how to work the audience. Stevie dedicated "Landslide" to Bridgeport--though I'm not sure why, seemed like a transplanted audience from the New England roundabouts. It was sweet. The did the usual hug and side-of-head kiss thing and it was over. "Say Goodbye" -- sounded like something was wrong with Lindsey's guitar--a little too much reverb, but they were great. Stevie took a stuffed something from a little girl in the audience and held it the whole time they were singing. I love how she has total concentration. She introduced "Beautiful Child" as she's being doing--sounded a little more raucous this show, Lindsey was realling going at it in that subtle rocking way. It's very obvious Stevie loves singing it. "Gold Dust Woman" was fabulous--if I said 'Rhiannon' was a perfect example, 'Gold Dust Woman' tied it. It was fabulous. Twirls, twirls, she held that long note there at the end and twisted the mic to sing to Lindsey. Very powerful. Lindsey is absolutely awesome. It's impossible not to be completely fascinated when he does "Big Love" and "I'm So Afraid" because they're just so amazing. I would love to see "Go Insane" but that's almost too much for poor Lindsey's fingers. "Silver Springs" was awesome--only a few words to describe this, it was ineffable really. She was rocking around, playing with Brett Tuggle as he played the piano at first, then singing the song at Lindsey's and rocking out. Developed quite a sweat on that one. Excellent. Aw, and the highlights of the show as usual. Lindsey just steals "Tusk"--it's so amazing. He was very playful tonight, "tusking John" who seemed to laugh more than usual, and then his albeit expected "fight" with Stevie followed by a longer-than-usual slow dance, before Stevie pushes him away and he starts bouncing around the stage. He obviously has a lot of energy at this point because the song ends, and the drum solo for "Stand Back" starts up and he's still crazy. He's got his guitar around his neck but he's like dancing some weird out-of-control thing--Mindy and Sharon are laughing, every one is clapping him on, except Stevie who is totally focused there in the corner. Finally, she emerges when Brett starts the opening notes and she's dancing too--though it's actually something resembling a dnace as opposed to a conscious seizure. "Stand Back" is a highlight because Stevie just completely goes all out--she's flapping her cape around, she does a thousand twirls, she's smiling and it just doesn't get any better than that. Well, "Go Your Own Way" is pretty close. Stevie is in the coat and tails, the audience is completely jumpng, so is Lindsey. It was excellent. As they're leaving the stage--my own personal highlight. I'm waving, jumping up and down and Stevie sees me, points, smiles and waves back. Oh lordy. Fabulous. Encore. World Turning--the song that doesn't stop--is just, so good. Every time I see it, I like it a little bit more--Stevie does such a great job on her part, though at some point the words get swtiched around. No matter, when she does it, it's flawless. Micks' vest was good, of course, I love how he completely spits on the front row--and that Stevie and Lindsey's mics have to be cleaned with Listerine before they go back on. So sweet. "Dont Stop" is just classic--you just don't beat that. Makes you wish for a cardboard cut-out of Christine. "Goodbye Baby" was great, and my second personal highlight. Throughout the show, I was a little to the left of Lindsey's mic and got a few stares but during Goodbye Baby I was captivated with his playing, looked at him, and he was basically singing the song back to me. I love that he sings along with her. Just...one of the best shows. Amazing.
