Between 277 and 3,262 Reasons I Won’t Be Seeing Fleetwood Mac in Concert

That’s the range of ticket prices I found on a quick check on Ticketmaster and StubHub: $277 each for nosebleeds behind the stage; $3,262.40 EACH for front row center.

Have mercy, baby. Love me some Mac, but that’s too rich for me. How about you?

Here’s a free YouTube video from their 1982 Mirage tour, instead.

UPDATE: I went to the concert in Atlanta. It was awesome. Read this.

    As any right-thinking American knows, Fleetwood Mac was better when Peter Green and Jeremy Spencer wielded the axes in the band, before chicks twirled and tamborined their way all the way to the bank. Suddenly, everyone was in love and out of love and that is to art what canned salsa is to a good steak.

    One of the corruptions of all that loving and moping is the need for money.

    Interesting fact No. 1: Did you know that Lindsey Buckingham grew up in one of the wealthiest zip codes in the country?

    Interesting fact No. 2: Did you know that Mick Fleetwood owns a restaurant in Maui? That’s right, Maui. It looks like the sort of place the Real Housewives would go while on vacation to throw up on each other.

    Last Interesting Fact: Peter Green, who wrote Black Magic Woman and was sometimes hailed as “better than Clapton,” left the band … because it made too much money. (OK, he was also whacked out of his mind on LSD.) He once threatened his accountant with a gun because said accountant wouldn’t stop sending him money from residuals. You could look it up.

    As Green wrote in the song, Oh Well, in 1969:

    I can’t help about the shape I’m in
    I can’t sing, I ain’t pretty and my legs are thin
    But don’t ask me what I think of you
    I might not give the answer that you want me to…

    If he wasn’t writing about Mick and the boys and girls, well, he should have been.

    Peter Green lost his mind, and wrote “Oh Well,” years before Fleetwood met Lindsey and Stevie. It is a great song. They used to do it live — wonder if they still do… Regardless, you know that most Americans never heard of Fleetwood Mac before that “chick” twirled her way through “Rhiannon.”
