Kansas City, MO
Newest reviews posted at the
First of all I have waited since 1977 to see Fleetwood Mac and with all my
heart and soul the concert was worth the wait. From the minute the lights
went down then the first drum beats of "The Chain" I was taken to a place no
other concert has ever taken me. I danced, used my right hand against my
left hand for a tambourine, sang, laughed and of course cried a little.
Stevie, what can you say about Stevie except she is a poet to lyrics that
can take your emotions in so many directions. Lindsey was just incredible,
he played his guitar (with no pick) and gave it everything he
could....WOW...this man has a talent beyond belief. Stevie looked just
beautiful, sounded great and seemed to be having a wonderful time being back
with the people she loved. I wish I could just live last Wednesday night
over and over again. Mick and John are still the rock of Fleetwood Mac, so
thank you Stevie, thank you Lindsey, thank you John and of course thank you
Mick for taking this lady (same age as Stevie) to one of the best concerts
ever. Fleetwood Mac you just rock. You put the rock in my soul many years
ago and now have given me a night to always remember.
The show was awesome! It was even better than I expected! I've only been a
fan for a year, so this was my first Fleetwood Mac concert and I was blown
away! The energy was great! Mick was amazing on the drums -- his
enthusiasm is contagious, Lindsey's guitar playing was jaw-dropping, Stevie
was more incredible and enchanting than I could have imagined, and
John --well...he was there too...seems shy. Anyway, I stayed after the
concert to waive them off, which was fun...but wish I could have shaken
their hands or something.
Incredible show! Only negative thing I could say is that even with reading
only a few concert reviews I knew what would happen. All the moves that
people wrote about Stevie doing, she did. Every interaction between Stevie
and Lindsey was the same as previous shows. Stevie also dedicated
"Landslide" to Kansas City. So my only thing was that it made things seem
too rehearsed and not impulsive. I felt that I was getting the exact same
show as every other city. I'd be curious to hear from fans who are
attending multiple shows this tour. All-in-all an excellent show.
Absolutely worth every penny! It's a night I will never forget. I bought a
t-shirt --- intend to live in it for a week!
Fleetwood Mac in KC was awesome! When Stevie and Lindsey did a riff of "Goin to Kansas City" the crowd went nuts! Cant wait for the band to return!
Steve & Cynthia Rossetto
We very much where looking forward to our first Fleetwood Mac concert 8/13/03 in
Kansas City. The entire show from the time the band members stepped onto stage
they had us captivated by thier beautiful harmonization,Lindsey's guitar playing was
beyond our expectations,Mick's electronic vest drum kit is a one of a kind,John's
bass was as always right on,and Stevie was as awesome as she has ever been.
The show exceeded our expectations and we wish to thank the band for such a
Stevie may be in her 50's but I went to both the
Dallas concert and the Kansas City concert and her
voice was outstanding. The band meshes perfectly.
Stevie may not be able to hit the high note but what
do you expect she is a little older but she is still
kicking ass. Fans cheered during "Landslide" when she
sang the line "I'm getting older too" but for one she
is getting older and for two she is still awesome.
Their solo's were off the charts whether it was a drum
beat, a guitar string, or a voice it all rocked. It
was great to hear their new songs off their CD Say You
Will, all though their old stuff is classic it's
awesome that their their still writing songs.
Whatever Fleetwood Mac does we'll always be a fan.
Fleetwood Mac is like a fine wine that gets better
with time. AND REMEMBER THE MAC IS BACK!!!!!!!!
Fleetwood Mac rocked Kansas City tonight! It was awesome! Without a doubt, Landslide, was the best moment. Stevie's voice was right on, and watching all the lighters flicker on, one by one, was definitely one of the highlights. I called all the friends that I could during the song on my cell phone and tried to play them a little. World Turning, Stand Back, Tusk, and Don't Stop had the most power to them and the place went crazy on the opening riff of, Rhiannon. Stevie was, like always, looking classic in her shawls but....... WHERE WERE THE BOOTS??? All in
all, the show was awesome and I can't wait to see them again!
I had the pleasure of seeing Fleetwood Mac in Kansas City. I had been reading other fans' reviews of the concerts and knew what wonderful things were to come. The Kansas City Star writer said Stevie only twirled once (during "Gold Dust Woman"), but apparently he wasn't watching during "Stand Back" and "World Turning". She twirled like crazy in "Stand Back" and I went wild. I couldn't get enough. When Stevie came out wearing her gold shawl, I was on my feet going crazy for "Gold Dust Woman". She sounded great, her voice just got better as the night went on. This was my first time seeing the Mac or Stevie in concert, but I have loved them for years. I took my mother with me because my husband didn't want to go. We had some great mother-daughter time! I really hope to see to get a chance to see them live again. What a GREAT concert!!
I have seen the band play on several occations throughout the years but this is
by far the best they have ever sounded. Stevie's voice never sounded stronger
and Lindsay is just a madman on the guitar. I don't know how Mick and John
pound out those rhythms with hardly a break. My ears are still ringing.
Highlights for me, of course, were listening to everyone in the auditorium
singing along to "Landslide". Stevie was tickled by how the audience knew every
pause and knew at what parts of the song a "well" needed to be thrown in.
"Standback" brought the house down. Everyone was on their feet dancing. The
croud went wild when Stevie started twirling. Words cannot express how awesome
the show was. I hated it to end.
Last night was the best
night of my life. The show was amazing. I got there
and Stand Back was playing outside, I was so excited
to be around other FM fans. This was my first FM
concert, so I was wired. I got in the arena and bought
a black T-shirt and a poster. I wanted to buy more,
but things were expensive there. No tour books tonight
either, but I didn't really care because I wasn't
expecting them. I found my seat, it wasn't bad. I was
on Stevie's side, so I was happy. The ribbons from her
mic were flowing, it was almost like a dream. I had to
wait about an hour and fifteen minutes for it to
start, but it was WELL worth the wait. They started in
with the Chain, which was great. I was so amazed
because I had never been this close to my favorite
band before! Lindsey had his white shirt on, and
Stevie was in her classic black. No boots tonight,
just these really cute black sneakers. She really was
beautiful, she looks great. Dreams and Eyes of the
World passed by quickly, then they got to the new
songs. Peacekeeper was awesome and I loved Stevie's
little movements for Say You Will. Both were pretty
well received by the audience, which I was happy
about. There was a lot of SnL interaction in
Peacekeeper..hmmm...Everyone loved Never Going Back
Again, Lindsey's voice was great on that one. When he
first started the guitar part, Stevie started singing
"I'm going to Kansas City.." and then started cracking
up. It was cute! Then Stevie got out her Rhiannon
sleeves out and did a bewitching performance. Gypsy
was pretty, I loved how they showed parts of the Gypsy
video on the screen. They were my favorite parts too!
Stevie dancing with Lindsey, then twirling in the
rain...very beautiful. Come was Lindsey's best
performance of the night. He just "goes insane" with
his guitar at the end. I didn't really like the song
on the album, but it ROCKS live. I loved Big Love,
he's just mastered the guitar and vocal parts for that
song flawlessly. Landslide was the crowd pleaser of
the night. Everyone had their lighters out and was
singing along, myself included. During the guitar solo
Stevie massaged Lindsey's shoulders, which was cute. I
liked how they used a big screen in the center for
both of those numbers. The first half of the show went
by in a flash, due to my excitement. The second half
is where they really rocked the house. Say Goodbye was
very pretty. Stevie was staring at Lindsey the WHOLE
TIME. I loved how she harmonized with him on that
song. On our screen it showed her staring at him, and
on the other screen it showed him staring at her..it
was beautiful. I don't know..but I think they're still
in love. At least on some level, that is. Say Goodbye
had the most SnL interaction of the night. What's the
World Coming To was nice, I loved the hands on the
screen. Gold Dust Woman...rocked. I loved the gold
dust effects on the screen. Stevie's voice was SO
strong on that number, I loved how she cried out "and
go hoooooomme aaaah aaahh". Well, you know what I'm
talking about. It was definitely a major highlight.
Beautiful Child....that song was beautiful. Her
voice..there's something different about it. She
really does sound like she did back in the 70's. Yes,
her voice is that good. At least I thought so. I loved
how she added "I still love you" at the end. It was
very moving. It was also my favorite song of the
night, I wish I could see it again. I'm So Afraid blew
me away! Lindsey's solo...way better than on the
Dance. It's just..the song rocked. One of the best
ones last night. Silver Springs was awesome. I loved
how they stared at each other at the end of the song,
and how Stevie sang "am I just a fool". You can really
see the romance on that song. Tusk was VERY cute, I
loved how Lindsey took off his guitar and started
chasing Stevie around. Yeah..he attacked John's back.
That was hilarious! Then he and Stevie danced around,
the whole song was so fun. Stand Back was one of the
best. Stevie ROCKED through that song, she wailed and
tore up that song up. Awesome. Go Your Own Way was
very good. Lindsey's solo at the end was awesome, as
always. So then I was sad that it was almost the end,
but I was still hyped up for the encores. They came
out for World Turning, which eventuallly transformed
into Mick's drum solo. I don't know how he does
it..with how hyper he looked I was afraid he was going
to collapse! LOL, but his solo was awesome. Love the
suit thing. Don't Stop was great, I liked how Stevie
took over Christine's parts. Goodbye Baby was also a
highlight, her voice was really pretty on it. Then at
the end Mick said his "take care" speech and Lindsey
and John waved. Then before Stevie walked off stage,
she said "You rock!". LOL! The crowd loved that. Then
Mick yelled "THE MAC IS BACK!". Overall that concert
was amazing. Now I'm going to rant about the audience
a little, because I was very disappointed. Although
the crowd was um..very energetic, but they were rude.
The people on the floor seemed into it, but the people
in my section just..weren't. I mean, you're supposed
to come to a show, sit down, and listen. Between
almost every song, people were getting up to get food
or drinks. Another thing I noticed is, whenver a
Lindsey song started, they would leave. Then they'd
come back when a Stevie song was on. Uh..this is a
FLEETWOOD MAC concert, not a Stevie Nicks concert.
Geez..then at the end of the show I was really
disappointed. Everyone started leaving after GYOW. I
mean..there are encores, people don't know this? Then
a lot of people left after World Turning and Don't
Stop. People were leaving during Goodbye Baby, and not
even paying attention. My section was just rude.
Before I left the arena, I was smelling marijuana.
Okay..but anyway. All in all, this concert knocked my
socks off. I'm wearing the shirt I bought last night,
and I'm going to hang up the poster I bought in my
room right now. If you have a chance to go to a show,
please do. You won't be disappointed! This was the
best concert I've ever attented, the Mac STILL has it!
Wow! That is the best word to describe the wonderful show I saw on
Wednesday night. This is the second show I have seen on the tour, and I
must say it got better. The first was in Milwaukee at Summerfest. At this
one my seats were a little farther back but it did not matter. Mick was
amazing on the drums. John just stayed back with his bass and was great.
Lindsey, well what can you say just a maniac on that guitar. Awesome!
Stevie was amazing and wonderful. "Stand Back" just rocked. I did read the
review of the critic in Kansas City and I was dissapointed in it. If he
went there thinking they were going to pretend that Chris was on the
keyboards and play her songs he was crazy. I loved "Beautiful Child". That
is my favorite song and to see it twice in 2 months live was great! I think
they are back and in full force. Nothing was missing (except Chris of
course). Don't stop was missing her, but otherwise I didn't really think
about her much. Great show! I am only 23 so to hear most of the songs from
Rumours was a treat for me. I got the best of the old and the new. The
whole show was wonderful and I loved every minute. I could have sat there
all night and just listened.
