VIDEOS 11/6: Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne (Night 3)

Fleetwood Mac rocked Rod Laver Arena once again on Friday night, closing out their three-night stay in Victoria’s capital city of Melbourne. The band now heads 45 miles southwest to the port city of Geelong, where they will perform at the Mt Duneed Estate on Saturday.

Stevie dedicated “Landslide” to “our wayward Australian man Patrick.”

“Patrick, we’re so glad you’re here. We’ve missed you. It’s not quite the same without you.”

REVIEW: ’70s superheroes still a fertile hit factory

MUSIC
FLEETWOOD MAC ★★★1/2
Rod Laver Arena, November 2

Like superheroes. Five mysterious individuals with unique powers, reunited against incredible odds to save the free world one more time. Like Kiss with better tunes, Fleetwood Mac is a band inseparable from its own mythology.

There’s mad uncle Mick Fleetwood in his eccentric country gentleman’s attire, biting bearded lips with bug-eyes rolling. He’s an inseparable bloc with his “truly dearest friend” John McVie, quietly plucking bass in the shadow of a flat golfer’s cap.

Messianic ringleader Lindsey Buckingham and witch-fairy Stevie Nicks are another unit: eternal king and queen of the Heartbreak High prom, playing up the sexual tension through misty eyes in the whispers of Landslide then re-enacting the finger-pointing rage in “Go Your Own Way.”

Then there’s Christine McVie, returned at last to quietly steal the show with “You Make Loving Fun” and the gentle coda of Songbird, as if the 22 songs preceding hadn’t already made their case for one of the most fertile hit factories of the modern age.

Sure, some of the moves may have felt a little stilted. “Tusk” wasn’t quite the climactic eruption with its marching band horns caged inside a synthesiser. Nicks did duck out of few high notes in “Dreams” and elsewhere.

But from Buckingham’s psychobabbling song introductions and anguished six-string pyrotechnics to Fleetwood’s nutty crowd-baiting drum solo, to nearly every damn track plus B-sides of that album, Rumours, the world felt as harmonious as it’ll ever be.

VIDEOS 11/2: Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne (Night 1)

Fleetwood Mac performed at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on Monday night, the first of three soldout shows.

Stevie dedicated “Landslide” to a man whom she dubbed “Movie Mark.”

“Had it not been for ‘Movie Mark,” I would not have seen the second movie of the Twilight series, and therefore, I would not have written a song called ‘Moonlight” that I dearly love and that changed my life. And it’s all because of him. So thank you, Mark, for that magical moment that you created that ended up creating a lot of magic for me. So this is for you and it’s ‘Landslide.'”
