Fleetwood Mac in Montréal: It’s only a goodbye

MONTREAL – It was nostalgic evening at the Bell Centre on Thursday night for the last tour of the legendary group Fleetwood Mac. Baby Boomers and amateur folk 1970 atmospheric rock have made an appointment in an atmosphere where the quintet chained success.

Wasting no time, the five members of the group that as with British American veterans Mick Fleetwood and John McVie (who gave their name to training), first met in Montreal, began the show by performing one after The Chain, You Make Loving Fun and beautiful Dreams, all derived from Rumours, their legendary album, which sold 40 million copies.

Then the singer Stevie Nicks, still with his charismatic look wolf and her long sparkly scarves that kink around his hands, came to charm Montreal by mixing French and English. “Good evening, thank you. Let’s get this party started, “said she shouted to the adoring crowd.

She later said the return to Montreal pianist Christine McVie who was not present at previous shows. “Welcome back Chris,” commented Nicks. Moreover, on several occasions, training members celebrated the return of the artist.
Rock virtuoso

The group followed with Second Hand News and Rhiannon. The show became more rock with parts Everywhere, I Know I’m Not Wrong and Tusk where the stripper guitarist Lindsey Buckingham can show all his virtuosity. “We are so happy to be here in Montreal,” he proclaimed after releasing a cry.

Stevie Nicks continued with Sisters of The Moon Tusk album and Say You Love Me. A very folk rock followed the Seven Wonders where the artist showed again the extent of his voice.

Lindsey Buckingham, very comfortable on stage, has also made a ham trying to sing in French. Then he delivered a moving speech about his past experiences and the power to change before going with the song Big Love, heartfelt. A moment of mastery by this exceptional guitarist, a true showman who was strongly applauded by the crowd of more than 12,000 attendees.

Nicks came then join his former partner on stage for another magical moment. Surrounded by stars that seemed to escape the screens, the singer sang the beautiful Landslide, folk ballad with country overtones. Again asked the crowd, the applause was at its peak! The beautiful and great American music.

All hits marched one after the other. In Over My Head to Go Your Own Way that the group had saved for last.

As a reminder, Fleetwood Mac again pleases its fans with another piece grand, Don’t Stop, revived in the 1990s by Bill Clinton, who had used during his election campaign.

In the end, only disappointment some sound addicts especially during times over rocks which made us lose the musical nuances. But no hide his pleasure and all would like to review these tireless soixantenaires for another lap.

Original Review

Fleetwood Mac à Montréal: ce n’est qu’un au revoir

MONTRÉAL – C’était soirée nostalgie jeudi soir au Centre Bell pour l’ultime tournée du groupe mythique Fleetwood Mac. Baby-boomers et amateurs de folk rock atmosphérique 1970 se sont donné rendez-vous dans une ambiance où le quintette a enchaîné les succès.

Sans perdre de temps, les cinq membres du groupe britano-américain dont les vétérans Mick Fleetwood et John McVie (qui ont donné leur nom à la formation), pour la première fois réunis à Montréal, ont amorcé le spectacle en interprétant coup sur coup The Chain, You Make Loving Fun et le superbe Dreams, tous tirés de Rumours, leur légendaire album, vendu à 40 millions d’exemplaires.

Puis, la chanteuse Stevie Nicks, toujours aussi charismatique avec son regard de louve et ses longs foulards scintillants qui s’entortillent autour de ses mains, est venue charmer Montréal en mêlant le français et l’anglais. «Good evening, merci beaucoup. Let’s get this party started», a-t-elle crié à la foule conquise.

Elle a par la suite souligné le retour à Montréal de la pianiste Christine McVie qui n’était pas présente lors des spectacles précédents. «Bon retour Chris», a lancé Nicks. D’ailleurs, à plusieurs occasions, les membres de la formation ont célébré le retour de l’artiste.

Rock virtuose

Le groupe a enchaîné avec Second Hand News, puis Rhiannon. Le spectacle est devenu davantage rock avec les pièces Everywhere, I Know I’m Not Wrong et Tusk où le décapant guitariste Lindsey Buckingham peut montrer toute sa virtuosité. «Nous sommes tellement contents d’être ici à Montréal», a-t-il clamé après avoir lâché un cri.

Stevie Nicks a poursuivi avec Sisters of The Moon de l’album Tusk, puis Say You Love Me. A suivi la très folk rock Seven Wonders où l’artiste a montré encore l’étendu de sa voix.

Lindsey Buckingham, très à l’aise sur la scène, s’est aussi fait cabotin en essayant de chanter en français. Puis, il a livré un très émouvant discours sur ses expériences passées et le pouvoir de changer avant d’y aller avec la chanson Big Love, bien sentie. Un moment de maestria par ce guitariste d’exception, véritable bête de scène qui a été fortement applaudie par la foule de plus de 12 000 personnes présentes.

Nicks est venue alors rejoindre son ancien compagnon sur scène pour un autre moment magique. Entourés d’étoiles qui semblaient s’échapper des écrans, la chanteuse a entonné la magnifique Landslide, ballade folk aux relents country. La foule en a redemandé, l’applaudimètre était à son apogée! De la belle et grande musique américaine.

Tous les grands succès ont défilé les uns après les autres. De Over My Head à Go Your Own Way que le groupe avait gardé pour la fin.

En rappel, Fleetwood Mac a encore fait plaisir à ses fans avec un autre grandissime morceau, Don’t Stop, relancé dans les années 1990 par Bill Clinton qui l’avait utilisé lors de sa campagne électorale.

Au final, une seule déception, quelques accros sonores surtout lors des moments plus rocks qui nous faisait perdre les nuances musicales. Mais personne n’a boudé son plaisir et tous aimeraient revoir ces infatigables soixantenaires pour un autre tour de piste.
