The US make a gig going experience very easy. Car parked within 2 minutes walk of the venue, seamless "Will-Call" pickup and lots of legroom in a venue about the size of Wembley Arena.
With Christine McVie not in the current lineup, several of my favourite songs were missing. The middle of the set was a bit slow going (does any Fleetwood Mac fan really want to hear the words "and here are 3 songs from the album Tusk"?), but things picked up form Big Love onwards. You could be picky and say there was a slight self indulgence from Lindsey Buckingham with elongated solos, Stevie Nicks with the choice of a a solo song and Mick Fleetwood with the percussion solo, but I don't think you'd have found many in the near sell out crowd complaining. Knowing the setlist in advance meant we could slip out after 2.5 hours to miss the second encore and still feel we had got good value for money as we drove back up the I4 to Orlando.
