CONCERT REVIEW: Fleetwood Mac celebrate Rumours once again

This article has been roughly translated into English. See below for the original German article.

COLOGNE — On Sunday, rock legends Fleetwood Mac made a ​​guest appearance at Lanxess Arena in Cologne on their “Live 2013” tour, leaving nothing to be desired. We have pictures and short comments.

Huge cheers rang out as Fleetwood Mac opened the first of three concerts in Germany, before 15,000 visitors at Cologne Arena, which sold out weeks ago.

With “Second Hand News,” it started exactly like the roughly 40-million-copies-sold album Rumours. For the album’s 35th anniversary, the band is currently celebrating on the great stages of the world.

Founding member Mick Fleetwood’s quartet, representing the (almost) complete original cast of 1977, had played seven songs from Rumours by the end.

There were also hits like the punchy acoustic version of “Big Love” by singer Lindsey Buckingham and the perfectly polished pop sound of “Say Goodbye” – and the audience’s wishes came true.

Konzert in Köln

Fleetwood Mac zelebrieren noch einmal “Rumors”

KÖLN Die Rocklegenden Fleetwood Mac gastierten am Sonntag auf ihrer “Live 2013”-Tour in der Lanxess-Arena Köln und ließen keine Wünsche offen. Wir haben Bilder und die Kurzkritik.

Riesiger Jubel ertönte, als Fleetwood Mac das erste von drei Deutschland-Konzerten vor 15000 Besuchern in der seit Wochen ausverkauften Kölner Arena eröffneten.

Mit „Second Hand News“ startete es genau wie das rund 40 Millionen Mal verkaufte Album „Rumors“, dessen 35. Jubiläum die Band derzeit auf den großen Bühnen der Welt feiert.

Sieben Songs von „Rumors“ hat das Quartett um Gründungsmitglied Mick Fleetwood, das die (fast) komplette Originalbesetzung von 1977 darstellt, am Ende gespielt.

Dazu kamen Hits wie „Big Love“ in der druckvollen Akustikversion von Sänger Lindsay Buckingham oder „Say Goodbye“ im perfekt aufpolierten Popsound – und beim Publikum blieben keine Wünsche offen.

Stevie Says...
If I'm not vulnerable, I won't ever wrote any more songs about vulnerability, and then what am I doing? I need to help people. I need make people believe that it's all right to be vulnerable and to be a little naive, and to be still sweet and kind and good.
