Fleetwood Mac delights Vegas audience at T-Mobile Arena


Al Powers/T-Mobile Arena Fleetwood Mac performs at T-Mobile Arena on November 30.

. After Fleetwood Mac opened its T-Mobile Arena concert on Friday with the trustworthy, rollicking “The Chain”– a 1977 track from very popular album “Rumours” that was used in the soundtrack for last year’s superhero epic “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”– singer Stevie Nicks reminded a currently worked-up packed home that this was show 25 in the band’s “An Evening with Fleetwood Mac” tour. Then she recommended all of us get this celebration began as the band rolled into 1987 hit “Little Lies.”

There wasn’t much stage banter after that as Fleetwood Mac plowed through 2 solid hours of music, primarily its many immediately identifiable hits from the ’70s and ’80s with a couple of earlier jams sprinkled through. The tunes that prominently featured Nicks and her unique, relaxing voice elicited the greatest action from the pleased audience, and sometimes she didn’t need to sing a note; Her mystical moves dancing throughout the stage during “Gold Dust Lady” was a late-show favorite. Other than a few short intros to those old blues-rock numbers like “Inform Me All The Important Things You Do” and “Oh Well,” the music hardly ever stopped.

With backing players, the tour assembles a group of 11 artists onstage and workers has actually been a hot subject nowadays as guitar player, vocalist and songwriter Lindsey Buckingham, important to Fleetwood Mac’s hit-making prime time, was booted from the band earlier this year and has actually given that sued his previous mates. Naturally, fights and other drama have actually always belonged to the Mac’s mystique, however just a die-hard Buckingham fan could find any defect in the Vegas show as the energy remained high and the performance was fully satisfying.

Together with Nicks, founding members Mick Fleetwood and John McVie forming that trademark driving rhythm section and singer and keys gamer Christine McVie, the current lineup gets a fresh boost from Neil Finn, the vocalist and songwriter best understood for his deal with Crowded Home, and Mike Campbell, a fiery guitar player acknowledged as Tom Petty’s right-hand guy in the Heartbreakers. Both took every opportunity to shine in their brand-new supportive roles. An encore tribute to Petty of “Free Fallin'” put Campbell in the spotlight, and a tender, acoustic one-two punch of Finn’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over” followed by Nicks singing “Landslide” was a brilliant mix of 2 of everybody’s all-time preferred songs.

By the time Nicks and Christine McVie closed the short encore with the deep cut “All Over Again” from 1995 album “Time,” the audience was happy and exhausted, and after a couple of more grateful words from Fleetwood, another epic rock performance was engraved in T-Mobile Arena’s history. Just four nights earlier, Metallica set the attendance record for a concert at the Strip’s greatest place, betting 20,428 fans. That’s a lot of musical memories in one Vegas week.
