Fleetwood Mac headlines New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival

17TH SHOW: Fleetwood Mac, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, May 4, 2013

Fleetwood Mac headlined the Acura Stage at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on Saturday afternoon. The band pleasantly surprised the diverse festival revelers of all ages and musical persuasions. Attendees tweeted their enthusiasm for Stevie’s engaging stage presence and Lindsey’s exceptional guitar work throughout the show. Fleetwood Mac performed for appropriately two hours and 20 minutes, playing a shortened set list (dropping “Silver Springs” and “Say Goodbye”) for the general festival audience.

Stevie paid tribute to the New Orleans people by singing a few lines from her 2011 song “New Orleans,” which she wrote about Hurricane Katrina.
