RECAP: Fleetwood Mac performs at Dodger Stadium

The band pays tribute to veteran announcer Vin Scully at the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation’s Blue Diamond Gala

On Thursday night, Fleetwood Mac performed a special concert at the Blue Diamond Gala, honoring the legendary Vin Scully, veteran announcer for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The star-studded event was held on the field of Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, where celebrities such as Matthew McConaughey, Sylvester Stallone, John Mayer, Lea Michele, and others schmoozed with the guests.

Guests first attended the blue carpet pre-party, mingling with Los Angeles Dodgers players, coaches, and alumni. Vin Scully then addressed gala attendees on the playing field, centerfield to be specific.

During his speech, the guest-of-honor joked, “I wish I could sing with Fleetwood Mac … That would be a sight and a sound, wouldn’t it?” After cocktails and dinner, they watched Fleetwood Mac perform a special concert, the band’s only show of the year.

The five band members took to the stage at around 9:00pm and performed a slightly shortened version of the On With the Show Tour set list.

Lindsey Buckingham talked at length about the evolution of “Big Love” and later dedicated it to his wife Kristen and his three children Will, Leelee, and Stella.

Stevie Nicks dedicated “Landslide” to Scully and said “Mr. Scully, we are right behind you,” jokingly referring to both of their very long careers. “So this is for you with all our love, and just keep doing what you do. We love you for it.”

After “Go Your Own Way,” Mick Fleetwood introduced the band, but limited the mentions to just the core five members.

After “Don’t Stop”, Stevie thanked everyone for coming, saying “This has been a really special, beautiful, unique, and extremely different, amazing memory.”

All proceeds from the evening will benefit the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation, the official team charity of the Los Angeles Dodgers. According to the foundation’s official website, its mission is to support greater-Los -Angeles-area families in need through sports, recreation, education, and health and wellness.

  • REVIEW: Fleetwood Mac at Rod Laver Arena Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    Given the well-documented dramas they’ve endured over the decades, you assumed by now Fleetwood Mac were pretty much invincible. However reuniting that classic Rumours-era line-up back for the 2014/2015 tour proved they had one more soap opera-style twist up their billowing sleeves. So in 2019, it’s either this Lindsey Buckingham-free version of Fleetwood Mac or […]

Perhaps it still […]

  • Fleetwood Mac: Still going their own way Thursday, August 22, 2019
    Since it began as a British rock band in 1967, Fleetwood Mac has undergone 19 iterations while steadily adding Americans and, most recently, a New Zealander to its line-up. Its only remaining founding member is drummer Mick Fleetwood, who recently described each version of the group as “incredibly different musical episodes in this Shakespearean play […]
  • Seeing Fleetwood Mac in 2019 is a strange experience — but they’ve always been a strange band Wednesday, August 21, 2019
    If their songs weren’t so strong, endurance may be Fleetwood Mac’s greatest legacy Thirty minutes into Fleetwood Mac’s set at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre this week, Stevie Nicks admitted that she didn’t realise “Black Magic Woman” was a Fleetwood Mac song until well after she’d joined the band. It’s an astounding admission. Sure, the song […]
