Review: Fleetwood Mac thrills with timeless hits and tension at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa

Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks walked onstage Friday at the Tampa Bay Times Forum hand in hand, like the oldest of friends in the world.

Then, for the next eight songs, the onetime lovers didn’t interact. Like, not even a little. Not a nod. Not a glance. Certainly nothing as intimate as skin-to-skin contact.

Could there be a better encapsulation of the Fleetwood Mac experience?

Thirty-six years after Rumours, the definitive breakup album of the 20th century – yeah, we said it – the interpersonal conflict that drove Fleetwood Mac to its greatest creative heights remains an integral part of its mystique and eternal appeal. Fans with a ticket to a Fleetwood Mac show expect not only decades of indelible pop hits; they expect a taste of the drama that begat them.

On Friday at the Forum, 14,071 Fleetwood Mac fans got all of the above and more. Click here for our review of the concert.
