I must say this was my favorite Mac and Stevie concert by far. They were
so full of energy after their two weeks off. Having second row seats I knew I
was in for a treat. Towards the end though I got to go by the stage. They are
just as gorgoeus in person as they are on the cd covers. Lindsey and Stevie
did their thing during Tusk and even John was feeling good. He danced aound with
his bass. Mick was also on a roll during his jam out session with World
Turning. I have to admit that I will remember this night forever. Thanks to the
Mac for being so cool. And to quote Mick Fleetwood......"THE MAC IS BACK"

It has been my dream to see Stevie Nicks for 19 years and it finally came true!! Getting to the concert was horrendous due to the bad traffic. When we walked in the doors I could hear FM already playing (apparently we got there just as the show started). As I RAN into the colliseum I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw Stevie RIGHT THERE in front of my eyes. I was so overcome with emotion. I couldn't stop the tears. My husband put his arms around me and just held me. It was a magical moment. The rest of the show was just as magical. The show was fantastic! The energy was great. And - Stevie sang my favorite song of all time. She sang "Beautiful Child" which brought on another onslaught of tears. It was just fantastic and I couldn't have asked for a better show. Thank you for making my dream a reality!
I'M STILL BOUNCING AROUND WITH ALL OF THE MAC TUNES I HEARD IN BILOXI SATURDAY NIGHT!!! I'M AGHAST, I'M PERPLEXED, ASTOUNDED AND DOWN RIGHT GIDDY, ALL AT THE SAME TIME.
ANYTIME I GET THE CHANCE TO SUPPORT THE MAC OR STEVIE DURING ONE OF THEIR TOURS, I JUMP ON IT. I'M A VETERAN OF SORTS WITH 25 OR SO SHOWS UNDER MY BELT (MAC&STEVIE SOLO). IT'S THE VERY LEAST I CAN DO FOR SOME OF THE MOST TALENTED PEOPLE IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, AND OF OUR TIME. I JUST CAN'T UNDERSTAND HOW THEY DO IT, THEY JUST "DON'T' STOP"! I'M FORTY NOW AND I DECIDED TO TAKE 3 OF MY 40YR OLD FRIENDS WHO HAVE NEVER SEEN FMAC OR STEVIE TO THIS SHOW AS AN EXPERIMENT TO PROVE TO MYSELF THAT I'M NOT JUST IMAGINING THIS PHENOMENON.
WE GOT OURSELVES SEATED AND STARTED SIPPING OUR COLD BREWS AND PLANNING OUR POST CONCERT GAMBLING IN BILOXI (LIKE TYPICAL 40 YR OLD SOUTHERN MEN WILL DO!), WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN MICKS UNMISTAKEABLE POUNDING USHERED IN THE OPENING OF "THE CHAIN", THEN CAME THE POWER GUITAR GOD HIMSELF FOLLOWED BY MCVIE'S PERFECT BASS PLAYING. "CUT TO US" FOR THE NEXT 2.5 HOURS, BEING CATAPULTED FROM THE 70'S CLASSIC RUMOURS ERA TO PRESENT DAY CLASSIC "SAY YOU WILL" HITS AND BACK AGAIN! IT WAS LIKE ROCK AND ROLL HEAVEN!
ONCE I WAS ABLE TO COMPOSE MYSELF AND STOP ANNOYING PEOPLE AROUND ME BY TRYING TO SING BACKUP FOR LINDSEY AND STEVIE AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS, I LOOKED OVER AT MY 3 FRIENDS I BROUGHT TO THEIR FIRST FMAC SHOW. ALL OF THEIR MOUTHS WERE WIDE OPEN AS WELL AS WIDE EYED IN AMAZEMENT. I COULD NOT PRY THEM AWAY TO GO LOOK FOR A NEW MAC TSHIRT OR GET MORE REFRESHEMENTS. THEY WERE TOTALLY TRANSFORMED INTO BRAND NEW MAC HEADS!
AT ONE POINT IN THE SHOW, AFTER GOLD DUST WOMAN, ALL OF THE MEN IN OUR SECTION STOOD UP AND BOWED TO STEVIE AS SHE WAS SOFTLY CHANTING THE FINAL "RUNNING IN THE SHADOWS" CHORUS. WE ALL FOLLOWED SUIT….. IT WAS REFLEX….IT'S JUST WHAT YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE IN MS. NICKS PRESENCE. SHE HAD US AT HELLO!
MY EXPERIMENT WAS COMPLETE. MY FRIENDS AGREED, THIS WAS THE BEST CONCERTS ANY OF US HAD EVER SEEN. WE ALL CAME BACK TO OUR TINY LITTLE BEACH TOWN OF PENSACOLA FLORIDA WITH THE NEW MAC DISC PLAYING IN OUR HEADS! THANK YOU STEVIE, LINDSEY, MICK AND JOHN…..FOR TAKING US AWAY FROM THE SOMETIMES HARSH REALITY OF TODAYS WORLD, AND GIVING US SOMETHING WONDERFUL TO REMEMBER.
This was my third time seeing a "Say You Will" show. Needless to say I was not disappointed. As before, the group truly entertained!!! We also got an extra special treat as we spotted Lindsey walking in the lobby at one of the hotels and were able to say a quick hello and my sister was able to get a hand shake from him. He was so humble and appreciative. I don't know what happened but I got so "star struck" I was unable to move, so I was not able to talk to him but it was such an experience as we are both such big Fleetwood Mac fans. The show was wonderful, however the arena parking was horrible. We left an hour before the concert (which was only two miles down the road from our hotel) and we were still not parked at 8:30. By that time we decided to just park along the beach and actually run to the arena. We made if along with the first beat of "The Chain", which was the opening song, to our seats. To Stevie, Lindsey, John and Mick: thank you for sharing your special talent with all of us. Your music is truly the sound track of our lives. I truly enjoyed the concert.....again.
This was my first opportunity to see Fleetwood Mac in concert. It has been a dream of mine for quite some time. The concert was excellent. The energy levels of everyone involved got the audience up and on their feet for most of the show. I couldn't have been more pleased with everything.
My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Lindsay Buckingham in the lobby of the hotel where we stayed (Fleetwood Mac also apparently chose the same hotel--WE LUCKED OUT!). He was very gracious and kind. With all the adoration over the years, I suppose I expected him to not want to be bothered. He was the absolute opposite of that. I was very pleased and thrilled to have been allowed the opportunity to spend a few moments with one of my favorites of all time. THANK YOU, everyone for continuing to bring joy and happiness, and good clean fun, to your millions of fans. Keep up the good work!
It was better than Bossier City. From the moment The Chain began you could see the eneregy on Stevie, Lindsey, Mick, and even John's faces. Stevie was moving more and Lindsey's "little demon" was very, very frisky. He was all over the place. John even moved around in his little area. Stevie actually look right at me several times durring "Gypsy"! I think it was because I was the only one standing up where I was siting at the end of row 2, but for me the best part of the night was during "WOrld Turning" the security let me and others go to the stage and I got to stand at Stevie's feet!!!!!!!!! It was amazing, spiritual, fantastic, beyond my wildest dreams!!!!!!! Then after the final bows I yelled that the show was awesome, we love the band, and keep up the great work or something like that and Lindsey looked right at me put his hands together and did a little head nod and said thank you!!!!! Lindsey acknowledged me I couldn't and still can't believe it!!!! If you haven't
gone go!!!!! No matter what the cost get a ticket up front!!
I also want to add that Mac fans are the greatest!!!! By the time the show had started me and Julie had made friends with several people around us and had a long list for pics. That reminds me the Mac let us have cameras!!! They truly are the nicest, coolest, most giving band ever!! Go see them NOW!!!!!

This was our first Fleetwood Mac concert, and all we can say is wow! I
have been waiting to see Stevie for over 18 years, so I eagerly
anticipated this night. We were 11 rows away from Stevie front and
center, and my partner Don and I could not believe the energy she and FM
gave us. They just kept going and going, for 2 1/2 wonderful hours, and
we didn't want the night to end. My voice is hoarse from screaming "We
love you Stevie", and I will never forget this enchanted evening with
Stevie so wonderfully close. Thank you Stevie & FM, we can't wait for
the next one!
