I have followed FM since the age of 15 and have seen their show many, many, times. Now At the age of 40 I feel that they put on one of the best shows ever,,they ROCKED! I have heard people say that Stevie wasn't doing her best,,come on folks,,get real,,Stevie kicked *** she's not a young girl anymore. FM are one of the most talented bands EVER,,and as far as the broken guitar strings or tech. difficulties,,to me that makes it even more real. I hope that they will be around for many years to come. FM's BIGGEST FAN, Sarah Hart

FM played for nearly 2 1/2 hurs. The begining was a little slow, with new songs and stuff some people don't know but by the time LB broke his guitar string during Come they were into it. Carlos Rios seemed to be having the time of his life during this song. LB thrust his arms in the air and mouthed the words "we rocked." His voice is just fine. The audio on those tv broadcasts sukced, plain and simple. This band sounds great. The high point of the show for me was Beautiful Child. Stevie's voice was high and clear and it was sung just as it was 25 years ago. Bret Tuggle played Chris's part nicely. This song will be the show stealer just as Silver Springs was in '97. LB had to help Stevie on stage and it is clear that her hip is still ailing. She wore the same dress as on Leno, augmented with a variety of shawls during the evening. She wore a beautiful pink one for Goodbye Baby,a song the audience really seemed to take to. LB broke another string during GYOW and started pawing at the guitar, for a minute I thougt he was gonna do the Jimi Hendrix. He was clearly having a blast. Mick kept the vest solo during World Turning short and sweet and augmented it with what seemed like samples of the "ah" from Big Love and the guitar part to World Turning. Mindy Stein wore a Rhiannon style top in black velvet with bat wing style sleeves. Sharona was ever the class act in a little black suit. John McVie retained his spot by Mick for the evening in his baseball cap, formidable bass and what I'm calling the "contiki shirt." If I had any doubts, they are long gone. LB's guitar came unplugged during Big Love and he didn't talk about cycles he said "Let's just pick this up in the middle." The audience happily agreed. Stevie sang Chris's part in Don't Stop augmenting the lyrics a bit. Goodbye Baby really got to the audience. She sang it high and strong. The venue and the people in this town are freindly and nice. Stevie said as she left the stage "You don't know how much tonight meant to us." I feel like it was a dream. It was a great show. The band rocked. It's gonna be a great tour.

First Night Jitters Worked Out By Show's End

Stevie's voice sounded rough - not hitting the high notes on an dispirated version of Rhiannon during the first quarter of the show. Linsday, however was in fine voice and helped to carry the show during Stevie's low points. Eventually she overcame her nervousness, and from that point they didn't look back. The new songs got polite responses, the loud cheers were reserved for the classics. But that's not such a bad thing.

Opening Night was a HUGE success

The band took the stage at 8:20 in the nearly sold out Shottenstein Center. From Mick's first drumbeat on The Chain to the final notes of Don't Stop it was a great night of music. Although it was the first show of the tour, it went off very well. The only glitch was Lindsey's guitar going bad on Big Love. Even without Christine McVie, it was awesome.
