CONCERT PREVIEW: Fleetwood Mac's setlist bodes well for fans of the Rumours album

It’s no surprise that Fleetwood Mac draws heavily from its most popular album, 1977’s Rumours, in concert. But according to setlist.fm, the group is performing no less than seven of the LP’s 11 tracks on its current world tour, which hits Vancouver this Sunday.

Unless the band decides at the last minute to stray from its current setlist, it’ll kick off the show with Rumours’ opening track, “Second Hand News,” and go on to include “The Chain,” “Dreams,” “Never Going Back Again,” “Gold Dust Woman,” “Go Your Own Way,” and the Bill Clinton-endorsed “Don’t Stop” during its 23-song engagement.

An eighth tune from the Rumours sessions, “Silver Springs” — which was released as the B-side to the “Go Your Own Way” single, and then included on the 1997 live album The Dance — is part of the show’s encore.

There could have been even more Rumours songs included on the tour, actually, if not for the fact that keyboardist-vocalist Christine McVie isn’t in the lineup anymore. If she were, songs she wrote and sang on the album like “Songbird,” “You Make Loving Fun,” and “Oh Daddy” might have made the cut.

The only reason the McVie-penned “Don’t Stop” made it into the current set is because guitarist-vocalist Lindsay Buckingham sings on it too. (Plus, he plays that sweet 20-second solo, don’t forget.)
