What an amazing show at the Verizon Center in Washington DC Tuesday night. Stevie Nicks, Lindsay Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood and John Mc Vie showed us why, the album, Rumours was one of the biggest albums of all time.

The first time I saw them was 1980, at the Capital Center near DC, “Tusk” was their album. I was very pleased to see this Mac, revisit “Tusk” several times Tuesday night. We heard songs from “Tusk” ( Tusk, Not That Funny, Sara, Sisters Of The Moon, etc.) performed live. Quoting Mick Fleetwood, “It has been a long time”. Every one of their classics was performed flawlessly. The group was totally in-sync, looking eternally youthful. As a hard core fan, it is hard to pick your favorite performed songs. But a couple do stand out. Stevie Nicks’ “Gypsy”, yes she twirled like she did in the famous video. Lindsay’s guitar work, amazing in “Big Love” and “I Am So Afraid”. The eternally youthful Mick Fleetwood, not missing a beat on the drums, with the backbone of John Mc Vie’s bass. Stevie and Lindsay’s, “Landslide” performance was sweet and memorable. Stevie dedicated that song to Mick Fleetwood’s children traveling with them. Stevie’s best song live, her solo work, “Stand Back”. Her standards, “Rhiannon” and “Gold Dust Woman”a crowd pleaser. Two encores finished the night with “Silver Springs” in the middle of the set. Which by the way, Stevie wrote after getting inspired during a tour in DC and spotting the road sign, Silver Spring Maryland.

As for me, my seats were in the 8th row. I have never been closer. So I waited 30 years to be there. It was fitting since this was the 35th anniversary tour of Rumours. Check out the set list below.
