Tues. 10 PM, MTV

Fleetwood Mac: The Dance, the Grammy-winning quintet's first full-length concert in 15 years, mixes classic songs and new compositions. The reunion was set in motion after drummer Mick Fleetwood agreed to play on singer-guitarist Lindsey Buckingham's solo album.

The Grammy-winning band reconnects the chain with this rocking concert special-- the bansis for an upcoming live album and fall tour. Singer-guitarist Lindsey Buckingham describes the current state of the group this way: "As live shows [go], I think we are actually playing betternow than we've ever played. I think we're more focused and everyone's listening to each other a little bit more." The audience bears him out, responding with fervor to "Rhiannon"; "Don't Stop"; "Go Your Own Way"; an eloquent rendition of "Landslide" by Stevie Nicks; and an acoustic version of "Big Love," featuring Buckingham's virtuoso guitar work. Taped in May. (1:30)
