Rock classics rule as Mac turn clock back
by Tony Carlin

THEY might have been the oldest rockers in town last night, but Fleetwood Mac still know how to put on a show.

For many of the fortysomethings at the SECC it was a chance to see the near-classic line-up from the 70s play for the first time in 16 years. Only Christine McVie was missing from the group which enjoyed album hits such as Rumours and Tusk.

Stevie Nicks, Lindsay Buckingham, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood provided a stunning mix of old classics and new tracks.

Kicking off with the anthemic The Chain and the mystical Dreams the band showed why Rumours was once the biggest-selling album in the world.

McVie's thumping bass and Fleetwood's manic drumming gave the perfect showcase for Buckingham and Nicks. Nicks' rendition of Gold Dust Woman and Rhiannon were simply awesome.

Few will forget Buckingham's brilliant unplugged solo version of Big Love.

New tracks, Peacekeeper and Say You Will, easily stood comparison with the rest of a two-and-a-half-hour playlist.

The supergroup's Go Your Own Way and the inimitable Don't Stop topped off a stunning performance.
