Fleetwood Mac recently kicked off the “Down Under” portion of their 2019 An Evening With Fleetwood Mac Tour. The legendary rock band hit Perth, Australia this past Sunday night where they performed “Man Of The World” live for the first time in 50 years about halfway through their set. Fleetwood Mac co-founder and lead guitarist Peter Green penned the song as a single in 1969 while current guitarist Neil Finn led the tune in 2019.

The band got things underway with hits like “The Chain,” “Dreams” and “Say You Love Me.” They also offered up a Split Enz cover in “I Got You” before returning to more classics like “Rhiannon” and “Gypsy.” According to Setlist.fm, the first “Man Of The World” since 1969 followed ahead of “Oh Well” and Finn leading a cover of Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over.”

Up next, Stevie Nicks’s “Landslide,” “Hold Me” and “Blue Letter,” the latter of which the band played for the first time since 1990. More iconic Mac songs followed including “You Make Loving Fun,” “Gold Dust Woman” and the set closer “Go Your Own Way.” Fleetwood Mac would encore with Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin’” and “Don’t Stop.”
