REVIEW: Rumours of Fleetwood Mac
2:04pm Wednesday 26th February 2014 in Entertainments
HAVING seen this incredible tribute band on one of their previous trips to Salisbury, I knew the audience at the packed City Hall was in for a treat, and Rumours of Fleetwood Mac didn’t disappoint.
Going straight to a popular classic, they kicked off with Gypsy and I was instantly tapping my feet and singing along to Louise Rogan’s dulcet tones.
The charismatic singer is incredible, and if you close your eyes you really would believe Stevie Nicks was in the room.
Amanda Kostadinov is equally convincing in the Christine McVie role and the two singers dominated the first half with some of the group’s most popular songs from their commercial peak in the 1970s and 80s.
The second half started with some older classics from the Peter Green era before the two women singers left the stage, giving the other musicians a chance to really show off their skills with the bluesy set.
The ladies then returned and the group belted out some favourites, with Rhiannon, Everywhere, Big Love, The Chain and Tusk all getting a showing.
It was impossible not to get swept along with the music – they sound perfect, and you really feel that all the members love playing Fleetwood Mac songs and haven’t got sick of it, despite touring for 14 years.
I don’t know if it’s an age thing or just a conservative personality but I couldn’t believe the number of people in the audience just passively watching the show without a foot tap or head bob in sight.
It wasn’t until the encore when they got everyone up on their feet that people really seemed to abandon their inhibitions and really embrace what this band is all about – the music.
