Last saw them in Auckland live about 2 years ago. Had their big fall out (again) with Lindsey Buckingham so Neil Finn and Mike Campbell played guitar (says something when it takes 2 people to replace you)

All apart from Christie Mcvie were good, unfortunately her voice has gone and she struggled during her solos, imho.

I'd rather jack than Fleetwood Mack 😁
Only joking. Rumours is a masterpiece, more so because it was made by at the time, one of the most dysfunctional bands in history.

Lindsay Buckingham at the top of his game. All of them under the influence of a bit of Bolivian marching powder here. Chills everytime that instantly recognisable bass line kicks in, especially when you know what's coming next in this version. Nicks and Buckingham singing this AT each other instead of too the crowd.

My all time favourite Fleetwood Mac song. The little smile at 1:37 in, he knows he's a part of a masterpiece of a performance. I want this song played when they wheel me away.

Think Neil Finn is a better all round musician than Lindsey Buckingham.

Stevie Nicks back in the day 😍😍 you would. Well I did, but she wasn’t aware of it 😜
When I was younger I listened to them and Stevie Nicks all the time. Had a big Stevie Nicks poster on my bedroom wall. Definitely in love with her. But being fickle my affections have moved on. My daughters middle name is Rhiannon.
I saw Fleetwood Mac at the NEC in 2015, and was not disappointed.

I feel the same about post-Green Fleetwood Mac as I feel about post-Barrett Pink Floyd.

Admittedly there's some decent stuff on Rumours but they seemed to lose any "edge" after their most talented/authentic member departed.

That Chain vid looks like a Rolling Thunder tribute act to my eyes.

Had a real thing about Stevie Nicks back then, although I much preferred Peter Greens Fleetwood Mac, he was one of my musical heroes and must admit that I shed a few tears when he passed.
