On Wednesday, Fleetwood Mac performed in concert for the second consecutive night at London’s O2 Arena. The sold-out, high-profile show featured celebrities in the audience, such as model Kate Moss, and the return to the stage of beloved, former Mac member Christine McVie. The keyboardist and singer-songwriter, who left Fleetwood Mac in 1998, played with the band during the first encore for one song, “Don’t Stop,” the smash hit that McVie wrote for Rumours. When McVie appeared on the stage, the nearly-15,000 attendees cheered with sheer joy and admiration, as if they had been reunited with an estranged loved one. Similarly, Twitter erupted with excitement as fans quickly tweeted about McVie’s surprise appearance.

Christine McVie will perform again with Fleetwood Mac at Friday night’s third and final show at London’s O2 Arena. McVie will perform again with Fleetwood Mac at Friday night’s concert.

The band also welcomed the return of founding Fleetwood Mac member, blues guitarist Peter Green, who was in the audience at tonight’s show. Stevie dedicated “Landslide” to Green, which earned crowd approval.
