16th SHOW: Fleetwood Mac, Verizon Arena, North Little Rock AR, May 3, 2013

Fleetwood Mac peformed in concert at the Verizon Center in North Little Rock, Arkansas, on Friday night. With no opening act, the band played for two-and-a-half hours, performing all 23 songs on the current set list. The band also had the honor of performing for surprise guests former President Clinton and first lady Hillary Clinton, who were seated in an arena box in section 121. The Clintons appeared to be having a great time, applauding often and giving the band many standing ovations, one of which appropriately occurred when they played Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential election campaign song “Don’t Stop.” Mick Fleetwood dedicated the song to “these two lovely people.”

Earlier in the day, the Clintons attended the dedication of Little Rock’s Bill and Hillary Clinton Airport, the first major airport in the country to be named after a president and first lady.

Fleetwood Mac’s next stop is New Orleans, where they will headline the Acura Stage at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on Saturday afternoon. The band is scheduled to take the stage at 4:40 p.m. After the festival show, Fleetwood Mac will take a short break as they prepare for a one-week tour of central and western Canada, which starts in Winnipeg, Manitoba on May 12 and ends in Vancouver, British Columbia on May 19. One last Canadian show is scheduled for June 18 in Montréal, Quebec.
