Setlist Fleetwood Mac:

In the Back of My Mind, Everywhere, Stand on the Rock, Little Lies, Stand Back,

Een thuiswedstrijd, in de Galgenwaard te Utrecht! Wat is het toch jammer dat er maar een enkele concerten in dit stadion hebben plaatsgevonden. Hopelijk komt deze tijd ooit weer terug. Fleetwood Mac behoort wat mij betreft toch wel bij de grootheden. De setlist was wat mij betreft behoorlijk af, alle lekkere nummers werden gespeeld en het was een hele leuke avond. Ben er trots op deze band nog eens live opgetreden te zien hebben!

Review van
This concert was part of the "Behind the Mask" tour, but with only two tracks featured from that new Warner Bros. disk, the crowd was treated to a greatest-hits package, high on concert pomp & circumstance, the camaraderie of old friends, & familiar music from the past. The band, backed by two singers, a percussionist, & an extra keyboardist, performed most solidly on the songs of Christine McVie---"Say You Love Me," "Little Lies," "You Make Loving Fun" & the encore of "Don't Stop"---capturing the band's enduring qualities. Stevie Nicks, although distant, gave her best on the acoustic "Landslide," but the audience responded more than generously to her presence on "Rhiannon" & the one non-Mac tune, "Stand Back."

Veteran rhythm section John McVie & Mick Fleetwood excelled when backing new band mates Rick Vito, who delivered an array of fine guitar support, & Billy Burnette on the rockin' change-ups "Oh Well," "Standing on the Rock" & an early Peter Green blues . Burnette, acting as MC, tried to keep the energy up, but pacing lagged & several lulls---especially before the encore---made the show feel slow & listless. "World Turning" ---featuring an overly long drum solo---gave the full band its best opportunity to shine as a unit.
