What concert were YOU at?

The concert was great, yes, but I'm not sure which concert the other reviewers saw! First, Stevie was very bland in the beginning. Her eyes were just awful and her voice was flat. She wouldn't even look at Lindsey for the first half hour. He seemed apologetic, and she would have none of it. Not sure if it was all part of the act, but she eventually, very gradually, warmed up. When she went over to hug Lindsey during a song, the crowd went wild! The last song they walked out (for the encore) holding hands, and he kissed her hand before going to his spot. It was heart-wretching to watch the interaction (and lack thereof) knowing their painful history. It was just as heart-warming to see them in the end. Music got better as they got closer through the evening. By the way, Lindsey was wearing a RED shirt. He sure knows his guitar. Amazing stuff. I felt very sorry for the people in the front rows, because there were people in front of the stage from the very beginning. Always buy seats in the LL or L at Sports Arena because of this. Great show, all in all. Glad they didn't have to cancel us, as they did Sacramento!

Everything that expected happened at this concert and than some. The quality of the sound was incredible. The band was tight (like the Dance DVD) and the band gave more than was expected. Worth every penny. Highly recommented. ric

San Diego: "Baby you are the light."

I'm not going to go over the set list as you all know it by now. Instead, here are just a few random thoughts from my Sand Diego experience. The venue is old- Stevie made a point of telling the story of how Fritz did a show there in '70 (Lindsey said '71) and opened for Leon Russell. She said "It was on of those things where you look out into the audience and see all those people and see your future coming right at you."
I got there late (apologies to gypsysara for not meeting) after dinner in the Gaslamp district. There was a horrible traffic jam going into the venue and the parking is really messed up and I got lost a few times. I ran to the will call window and got my tix just in time to get to my seat to the sound of the crickets. From the venue seating chart I thought I would be in front of Stevie but to my delight and surprise I was right in front of LB again. He was wearing the white shirt and a great smile and a nice California tan. His voice sounded much more rested and clear than it did in Dallas. He was even getting a little fancy with his vocals on NGBA as if to say "See, I don't need a voice coach or an ear monitor." I swear they know what we're talking about over here. Throughout the evening there was a little blond boy sitting on the stage in next to his monitor and when LB did Big Love the little boy did the "Ooh ah" parts with him, really getting into it. He also strummed Lindsey guitar with a pick a one point. I noticed he wasn't there during the louder songs like Come and ISA. He did the "dead man's pose" again after Tusk where he just kind of hangs there ath the waist and makes these funny noises. There was a lot of guitar pawing and letting people play his guitar and touch him but no broken strings. He also singed things for people and most surprisingly did the "Stevie walk"- walked the length of the stage and shook people's hands maybe becasue she can't bend because of her injury. He was very generous.
Miss Nicks looked radiant and for those of you who care, I noticed three red roses taped to the end of her mic and a single diamond ring on her left ring finger with enough carats to make Bugs Bunny envious. She was relaxed and happy for the entire show, even when a power failure caused some of the lighting to go out behind them. She walked to her mic and said that the lights went out behind us so if the rest of them go out then "Baby you are the light." The place went wild. There were no variations in her performances and once again Beautiful child was FLAWLESS. People were amazed. For Gypsy, she wore a rose colored print duster similar to the one in Dallas. The one in Dallas looked beige to me. I did notice in the darkness as she walked on and off stage that she walked very slowly and with a very slight limp. She broke out the medium speed spins for Stand Back. We looked at each other for what seemed like an eternity during Goodbye Baby. I just put my hand over my heart.
At the end of the show someone in front of me held up a sign that said "Come Rocks My World." Lindsey got quite a kick out of it and tried to point it out to Ms. Stevie but she wasn't having any of it or him. I noticed a few instances like that during the evening. Lindsey pointed it out to Mick and they laughed some more. McVie was McVie, solid as a rock looking happy and rested as well. I noticed Stevie likes to talk to him and Brett Tuggle between songs. We were treated to the Say You Will lasso dance and I think I've got it down now. She clearly gets a kick out of doing it. Mick as usual was making his faces and playing drums. I could live without the whole World Turning vest thing but I don't think that's going away anytime soon.
After the show, a local radio station replayed the show but I'm not sure if it was the show or a rebroadcast of the Anaheim recording for Westwood One. I thought I noticed a few subtle differences. I can't wait to see them again.
