You couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful night as Lindsey Buckingham returned to San Francisco for a stop on his solo tour. It was the second night of his North American Tour in support of his Solo Anthology and to catch him on his hometown show was a special treat. The show was held at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre which is the perfect venue to capture the energy and charisma that Lindsey and his band brings to the stage.
The night kicked off with an entertaining set from Nairobi folk artist J.S. Ondara. He is set to release his first album and entertained the crowd with his new songs. A true highlight was when he put down his guitar and delivered a commanding acapella performance that brought cheers from the crowd.
The crowd was anxiously awaiting the arrival of Lindsey Buckingham and when he hit the stage, he was greeted with a standing ovation, one of many throughout the night. The enthusiasm grew with each song as he performed a variety of his songs as well as a few Fleetwood Mac hits. Lindsey’s incendiary performance was one that will not be forgotten. Whether it is his impeccable guitar playing or his embracing voice that drew you in, you were kept in awe from start to finish.
The band flowed with precision and delivered an unwavering passion for the music. Lindsey took to performing several songs on his own and the crowd cheered in appreciation with more standing ovations. The fans sang along, danced in the aisles and had their hearts filled with the gift of music. It was an absolute magical evening. Check out some photos of the night by our Rockin Ryan:
