Fleetwood Mac performed the first of two Bay Area shows, rocking the SAP Center in San Jose on Tuesday night, the band’s 27th show of the massively successful “On With the Show Tour.” According to Live Nation, the band’s San Jose show was another sellout with more than 13,000 concert tickets purchased. Fleetwood Mac has sold out approximately 97% of the arenas in which they have performed since starting the tour in September, a figure clearly fueled by long-estranged member Christine McVie’s highly-anticipated return to the band.
Stevie dedicated “Landslide” to her best friend Robin Snyder Anderson, who succumbed to cancer in 1982, and Robin’s niece and two nephews — Emily, Dustin, and Lucas. She also dedicated the song to actor/dancer Brad Jeffries, who is best known for dancing in many of Stevie’s music videos, such as “Stand Back,” “If Anyone Falls,” and “Rooms on Fire.” Brad is from Santa Clara, California.
Stevie and Lindsey, in particular, were happy to be back in their old stomping grounds,”where the dream began,” according to Stevie, who once attended nearby San Jose State University in the late 1960s. She continued to talk adoringly about the area, making a third “Landslide” dedication to the people of San Jose. “This is for all of you in San Jose,” she told the crowd just before performing the perennial classic with Lindsey.
Fleetwood Mac returns to the Bay Area on December 3 for a show at Oracle Arena in Oakland.
