    I'm happy to see John is beating his cancer, it sounds like. That is the most important fact in the article. Buckingham/Nicks never did anything for me. Have fun!

    Cool, if it's not outrageously expensive I might see the show.

    Oh my god the prices. We really want to go, and the sound at the Tacoma Dome is so good now.

    Good grief...I guess I should have seen them in the '70s. Probably would have cost $7.50US for a really good seat!

    Yep. They were like the second or third billed act in the early 70s when I saw them and it probably was less than that, even.

    It would be fun to see the "original" band (at least to those of us who think that Rumors is Fleetwood Mac) live.

    They opened for Loggins and Messina back in late 70's, and they blew the headliner off the stage. They ROCKED.

    I don't recall the cost but it was reasonable - OTOH - it was the San Diego Sports Arena (no acoustic paradise) and festival seating. 1971 or '72 IIRC.

    1) Rory Gallagher - 'Bullfrog Blues' was getting a lot of airplay.
    2) Fleetwood Mac
    3) Deep Purple

    I'd love to see them, but tickets go up to $400.00 a piece for good seats in Indy! Yowzah!!!

    Found mine: March 31, 1972: Ashman Reynolds / Savoy Brown / Fleetwood Mac / Long John Baldry

    Capitol Theater, Port Chester NY, which was a great sounding and very cool theater venue. Most shows there ran $3.50-$7 or so back then. This was the last era of what I consider to be classic FM, but many of my friends would even say it ended when Peter Green left. No disrespect at all to Buckingham and Nicks, as I was always very happy for Mick Fleetwood and the McVies that they finally found real commercial success.

    I've never spent over 75 bucks for any concert and won't do large venues these days no matter who it is. Those that do, get it while you can! :cool:

    Jeez, seeing the Welch era Fleetwood Mac open for Deep Purple in their prime for under 10 bucks sounds to me like one of those strange utopian-type dreams where you feel suicidal upon waking up. You lucky, lucky old bastards!

    That said, as a 22-year old FM freak who's yet to see them, I just plunked down $130 for two nosebleed tickets to see them this December. With them cancelling my city's show two days before on the last tour, and Christine back in, I had to do it. Can't wait!

    LOL

    That's just how it was in the 70's, dude.

    Cheaper still, in the 60's. Often free. If I told you the shows I saw for stupid cheap, you'd think I was making it all up.

    A show costing $150-300 nowadays is incomprehensible to me.

    Anyway, nice to hear Christine M is touring with FM again. I always thought of her as THE Voice of Fleetwood Mac.

    you can bet it will be pricey.....i saw them warming up for deep purple after rory galagher,all for around 6 bucks in the early seventies....now a fleetwood mac show will probably cost you near 200 bucks.....considering they're all on old age security now,i think i'd give it a miss....
