The pop-rock titans return to London, with their most famous line-up back together again, to reel off their (many, many) classic hits.

Cheer up, sad sacks: the Mac are back – and better than ever. Well, better than they were for last year’s partial reunion, because there’s nothing partial about it this time: Christine is (officially) in.

The band’s 2013 tour was a joyous, momentous musical occasion. Fleetwood Mac, it turned out, were still a brilliant live band: Stevie Nicks was still all wavy-armed and magical, Lindsey Buckingham could still shred, and John McVie and Mick Fleetwood still looked like they were both auditioning for the part of Steptoe. But there was a big woman-and-piano-shaped hole on the side of the stage. For their return to The O2 next summer, they’ve filled that hole with the only woman who could do it justice: original singer and keyboardist (and John’s ex-wife: awkies) Christine McVie.

The woman born Christine Anne Perfect (seriously) made a brief cameo with the band in London last year, but now, for the first time since she left the band in 1998, you can hear the writer of ‘You Make Loving Fun’, ‘Little Lies’ and ‘Everywhere’ belt them out like they deserve to be belted. Fleetwood Mac are a walking greatest-hits package, and they just got a little greater.

attended this show on Friday 27th, absolutely superb. Lyndsey Buckingham was at his guitar playing best, and Mick on drums the usual treat. Stevie was the song bird blasting out the hits and when Christine joined them on stage it was a momentous occasion relished by the crowds - the Mac complete again. For a fan it was all Christmases rolled into one, wish I was going agin tonight!
