Fleetwood Mac never broke up, but in 1998 Christine McVie retired, and for nearly 16 years, the band forged on. But it wasn’t the same without her. Saturday night, for the first time since 1987, the band performed in Kansas City with McVie, nearly filling the Sprint Center and delivering a show that was as rousing and satisfying as it was nostalgic and memorable.
Throughout the concert, members of the audience jumped for joy, raised their arms in postures of praise and used the lyrics that ran across multiple screens to help them sing along to the Christian rock hymns.
Though attendance was down, the Kansas City area acts that made the journey to Austin, Texas, for this year’s South by Southwest Music Conference played to appreciative crowds and gained welcome exposure.
All this week we’ve been watching James Corden’s debut hosting “The Late Late Show” on CBS. And if you haven’t, then you missed a hysterical segment where the British host sang Mariah Carey songs in a car – with Mariah Carey.
