The venue at Saint Paul last night looked like it was fully sold out, right to the bloodiest nose-bleed seats. I'm both an Enz/CH/Neil fan and, to a lesser extent, a FM fan. I was really interested to see last night that (a) Neil is all over this show. He has a big presence, and he actually draws the eye, with more movement on stage than any of the others; (b) he sang fantastically well. I think it was the best I've ever heard him sing in concert. His voice was in great shape, which isn't always the case; and (c) he seemed to really win over the FM fans around me. They were making really positive comments about him out loud to each other. He certainly got big cheers, not just polite applause, throughout the evening.
David, you hit on all the points that I’ve observed through YouTube videos and concert reviews. Thank you for the review. To add an observation, Neil also seems really happy. As a big time friend of his music and musical adventures, that’s all I want for Neil. Happiness. Who knows, maybe this new gig with FM will positively influence his future projects beyond or around Fleetwood Mac concerts or recordings? I think it will and I’m excited for Neil and for us listeners.
