Fleetwood Mac at the Classic East, July 30, 2017

Performing a 20-song set list that was nearly identical to the one they played two weeks earlier at L.A.’s Classic West, Fleetwood Mac triumphed last night (July 30) at the New York City counterpart, Classic East.

As noted by Billboard in its review of the show, they were the first and only band among the six that played the festival that was not missing a key member: On Saturday night, Steely Dan performed sans co-founder Walter Becker, who is ill. The Eagles, of course, lost Glenn Frey last year and the Doobie Brothers no longer claim singer Michael McDonald as a member. On Sunday, openers Earth, Wind and Fire now continue without their key figure, Maurice White, who also passed last year, while Journey’s beloved frontman Steve Perry long ago left that band.

But all five members of the Fleetwood Mac lineup since 1975—Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and co-founders Mick Fleetwood and John McVie—were in place at Citi Field in Queens, launching their set with “The Chain,” from their mega-selling album Rumours, and offering up a hit-packed show that leaned heavily on that creative ’70s-’80s period. Among the other classics they performed on a perfect NYC summer evening were “Sara,” “Landslide,” “Second Hand News,” “Tusk” and “”Go Your Own Way,” which ended the set proper before they returned with an encore of “Don’t Stop.”
