March 31st and April 2nd, Fleetwood Mac will be performing in Boston at the TD Garden. The original members, Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood, John and Christine McVie, and new arrivals Mike Campbell and Neil Finn will be performing on the North American tour, “An Evening With Fleetwood Mac.” The band will travel to over 50 cities, Boston being the 25th.
Years after their global billboard hits, breakup of the original band and reunion, Fleetwood Mac continues to rise in popularity within newer generations. Even so, the event is only marketed to their original fan base. Only five months away, the ticket prices range from $250 for seats behind the stage, to front row floors seats at a whopping $2,300.
The TD Garden is somewhat an uneventful venue for a concert. A third of the seat map lays behind the stage, but only a portion of the seats are still being sold. The yellow outlined area is seats not being sold for the event. To the right of the red line are low cost seats, which are clearly not worth the price if the band is only seen from a screen.
Previous musicians such as Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, the Foo Fighters, all performed over the summer at Fenway. To spend this amount of money for an event, the cost should be worth the experience. This looks to be a real disappointment for the Fleetwood Mac band and the Boston audience.
