Great NZ Concerts - Fleetwood Mac (Wellington, 1980)

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:21 pm on 26 January 2016

Today's great New Zealand Concert features one of the biggest bands in the World in the late 70's. Fleetwood Mac enjoyed unprecedented success with their 1977 album Rumours, but by the time they reached Wellington in March 1980, the strain of four years of constant touring, an a much less successful follow up album was begining to show. At Athletic Park the band finally reached tipping point resuting in a very public spat, a stage walk off and a less than satisfied capacity crowd. This afternoon we remember that less than memorable concert.
