Fleetwood Mac - Tango in the Night

Recorded in late 1987, his hour-long concert documents a transitional period for Fleetwood Mac, with Lindsey Buckingham, their driving force, having left (until '97) that same year. It's a testament to Buckingham's role in the band that it took two guitarist-singers to replace him; but while Billy Burnette and Rick Vito are fine musicians with an abiding respect for the Mac legacy (they perform founding member Peter Green's "Oh Well" and "I Loved Another Woman"), this is a mostly lackluster affair, lacking Buckingham's fire and eccentric stage presence. Mainstays Mick Fleetwood and John McVie soldier on, as ever, with Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie still on hand as well, and Rumours-era tunes like "Dreams," "Don't Stop," and "The Chain" have a certain timeless appeal. But when a vest equipped with drum and percussion sounds is the highlight of the show (during Fleetwood's solo spot), you know you're not exactly witnessing history in the making. --Sam Graham

No thanks, Bettyejane
Lindsey Buckingham is not present at this concert, obviously causing the band to lose some of it's magical aura. The dynamic between Stevie and Lindsey being lost, they don't seem quite as dramatic and ethereal. Still, the two guitarist, Rick Vito and Billy Burnette, play wonderfully, if Burnette does pull some cheesy stunts at moments.
The show opens with a half-decent rendition of the chain, then launches into Everywhere. Christine is the star of this show. You will WEEP at the brilliance of Isn't it Midnight, and Little Lies. However, Stevie's voice is kinda weak on this one. She turns out an okay Seven Wonders, and a pretty good (albeit very fast) rendition of Dreams. Still, her performance of "Stand Back" from the Wild Heart album is the highlight of the show. The video is worth it just for Stand Back and Isn't it Midnight.
