Fleetwood Mac promised to reach deep into their catalog on this current tour and did they ever deliver for fans in Australia on Sunday night.
The last time the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers performed “Man of the World,” Neil and Buzz were likely bouncing on the surface of the moon in 1969.
According to fan-shot video, guitarist Neil Finn introduces the Peter Green era track, saying, “It’s an honor and a privilege for me to play it for you.” The band also broke out 1975’s “Blue Letter,” which has been seen a bit more recently, last heard live in 1990 on their Behind The Mask tour.
The show also featured the Split Enz song “I Got You,” which was in the setlist when the tour began in October but vanished after just eleven shows. Neil Finn is native to New Zealand and the 1979 song hit Number One there in addition to Australia, so bringing it back into the set was a no-brainer.
