Fleetwood Mac Kicks Off North American Fall Tour In Boston
Fleetwood Mac began the final portion of a world tour that started over a year ago last night at the TD Garden in Boston. The show was previously supposed to take place in April but was postponed due to Stevie Nicks‘ battle with the flu. Monday’s concert featured a bevy of the group’s greatest hits along with a few deep cuts and more.
The legendary band’s current lineup consists of longtime members Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks along with newcomers Mike Campbell (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers) and Neil Finn (Split Enz, Crowded House). Both Campbell and Finn joined in 2018 ahead of the current tour after Lindsey Buckingham was fired from the band.
Last night’s setlist followed a similar path as others from the now 80-show-old tour. Fleetwood Mac opened with “The Chain” and then played hits “Little Lies,” “Dreams,” “Second Hand News” and “Say You Love Me.” The band honored their early days by performing their 1968 single “Black Magic Woman” penned by former member Peter Green. Fleetwood Mac also paid tribute to Finn and Campbell’s roots via performances of Split Enz’s “I Got You” and Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over” as well as Petty’s “Free Fallin’.”
The band also fit in the recently busted out “Man Of The World” and “Oh Well” from Peter Green’s time in Fleetwood Mac. Last night’s show concluded with a run of hits that included “Landslide,” “Hold Me,” “You Make Loving Fun,” “Gold Dust Woman” and “Go Your Own Way.” For the encore, Fleetwood Mac followed “Free Fallin'” with “Don’t Stop.” The tour concludes in Las Vegas on November 16.
