Fleetwood Mac at U.S. Airways Center, 5/30/13

It would be challenging, at best, to attempt to write an objective concert review about a band that your love for borders on obsession, so I'm not going to try.

Fleetwood Mac's show at US Airways Arena last night, was...well, it was fine. It was what one could reasonably expect from a band at this stage in its career, a career that began well over forty years ago. They played the familiar hits, minus the Christine McVie (who stopped touring with the band in 1998) selections, which meant no “Say You Love Me,” no “Over My Head,” no “You Make Loving Fun,” no “Songbird,” no “Think About,” no “Little Lies.” Her noticeable absence left the band less like the Fleetwood Mac that we all know and love, and more like the Lindsey Buckingham/Stevie Nicks show, with band namesakes, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood serving as a backing band. --Shane Kennedy

Wrong. On many fronts. Amazing show, they hold their own, don't need Christine McVie to make them Fleetwood Mac as the band's gone through many a change in line up. Their own songs will do just fine thank-you-very-much. Oh, and uhm, sold-out shows really do mean something still. Bye-bye!

I heard an a capella cover of these guys once that was amazing. Never saw the actual group in concert though.

@WreckItWalsh Definitely would like to see them in concert sometime  too!  They used to live in Phoenix!
