11TH SHOW: Fleetwood Mac, Prudential Center, Newark NJ, April 24, 2013 (videos)

Highlights

  • Fleetwood Mac performed in concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. When the lights dimmed at 8:20 p.m., the crowd roared as the band took to the stage to start its set. “Second Hand News” and “The Chain” opened the show.
  • Stevie greeted the crowd warmly before continuing with “Dreams.” “We’re thrilled that you’re here. That being said, this party starts now!”
  • Lindsey continued to wow audiences with his impressive guitar solos, with fans tweeting their praises all throughout the concert.
  • Lindsey confirmed that the new Fleetwood Mac EP would be released next week. It will contain four songs.
  • Fleetwood Mac did not perform “Silver Springs” tonight. Though adored by fans, the vocally-complex song has been a challenge for Stevie to sing consistently on tour.
  • When Stevie and Lindsey returned to the stage for one of the encores, Stevie spotted a fan in the front row with a vinyl copy of the Buckingham Nicks album. Clearly amused, Stevie and Lindsey posed with the album and autographed it for the fan (see video of this interaction below).

@HadleyDKeller
Stevie and Lindsey singing Say Goodbye to each other was likely the most beautiful thing I’ve ever witnessed @fleetwoodmac

@scharpling
Fleetwood Mac were AMAZING tonite. Buckingham might be the most underrated person in rock history – George Harrison & Brian Wilson combined.
