2ND SHOW: Fleetwood Mac shows Philly fans some brotherly, sisterly love (videos)

(To see videos and more pictures from the show, scroll to the bottom of the page.)

Fleetwood Mac performed in concert before a highly enthusiastic and loving crowd on Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. Fortunately for Philly fans, the band reciprocated the love by performing all 23 songs that it played on opening night in Columbus, including new songs “Sad Angel” and “Without You.”

Stevie provided some insight into the recording of “Without You,” explaining that she and Lindsey were preparing to record the song for the second Buckingham Nicks album, but shelved the song after joining Fleetwood Mac. She rediscovered the song in 2010 after unexpectedly finding the original demo on YouTube (a similar story for In Your Dreams track “Secret Love,”) which seemed to humor the crowd.

Stevie also spoke briefly about “Sisters of the Moon,” saying that the band hadn’t performed the song in concert since the 1970s. (Granted, she clearly overlooked her most compelling renditions of the song from the 1982 Mirage tour. But in her defense, those performances were more than 30 years ago!) The 2013 incarnation was less ferocious, but still had the spooky charm of the studio recording. The audience welcomed its return.

The band was in fine form once again, as the members relished their time together onstage. Stevie and Lindsey, in particular, showed considerable affection for each other, holding hands as they walked onto stage and blowing kisses at each other while performing “Landslide.” The audience responded with thunderous cheers and applause, as the duo played up their onstage love affair.

Drummer Mick Fleetwood, wearing bright red shoes and the Rumours balls, which dangled conspicuously between his legs, was typically animated. He smiled and bounced across the stage with child-like whimsy, as the band returned to the stage to perform “World Turning,” the first of two encores.

As expected, “Landslide” and “Silver Springs” served as the emotional high-points of the evening, with the audience delightfully singing along in approval. Stevie explained that she originally wrote “Landslide” for Lindsey Buckingham, but over time, her late father, Jess Nicks, associated the heartwarming song with himself. She appropriately dedicated the song to all families, encouraging everyone to spend time with family members because “they don’t last forever.”

Fans will have new songs to sing along to as Fleetwood Mac releases an EP release containing “Miss Angel,” “Sad Angel,” and “Without You.” Lindsey Buckingham said that the songs are “the best stuff [they’ve] done in a long time.” The EP is expected to drop “in a few days” (on iTunes).

Fleetwood Mac heads to the Big Apple next for a show at legendary Madison Square Garden on Monday night.
