'I wanna be with you everywhere' … and apparently on the dance floor. The venue was packed out and women flocked to the dance floor from the get go. The audience ranged from their twenties taking selfies on the dance floor to their sixties dancing hand in hand old fashioned style. With at least three decades apart, Fleetwood Mac has broad and wide appeal. This band produced many hits in the 60s, 70s and 80s and can still command a hearty audience ready to sing their lungs out in mighty sing-alongs even now.
A massive line-up of Melbourne musicians collaborated in a celebration of the 30 Year anniversary of Fleetwood Mac's 14th studio album 'Tango in the Night' at the Yarraville Club. A total of 11 talented young musicians took to the stage and rotated roles to perform songs off the much-loved album, plus many other popular Mac hits. The musicians come from various members of several local Melbourne bands.
While the male singers were terrific, I think I preferred the female leads so I could imagine Fleetwood Mac headed by the amazing Stevie Nicks. Flashback to my teenage years - the drums pulsed through my body and I knew my ears would be ringing tonight, just like the good old days. Where did all those years go? 'Beautiful Child'
Celebrating the 1987 "Tango In The Night" the fifth and last studio album from the band's most successful line-up of Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood, this night featured their most popular hits such as "Everywhere", "Seven Wonders", "Little Lies" and "Big Love". They played the sure fire winners and die-hard fans were ready to rock. 'If I could crumble' "If I live to see the seven wonders'
'Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies, oh no you can't disguise' The volume of the singing audience and the amount of dancers left no doubt that the audience (and the singers) were thoroughly enjoying themselves. I wondered if half of the performers were even alive when Fleetwood Mac were in their hay day… but apparently that doesn't matter. The band has an enduring popularity.
The Yarraville Club claims to have it all a modern club with a TAB sports lounge, plus a relaxed bistro dishing up pub grub. I'm not saying we had one or two but there's plenty of sweet treats such as individual serves of pavlova and lemon pie.
This 30 Year Anniversary Tribute Celebration of Fleetwood Mac Tango In The Night was full of great energy, chardonnay and a lack of dancing reserve once plaguing my teenage years. There's just one more thing to say, and I dare you to say it out loud without having the tune catch in your head all day 'Just say that you want me'
