VIDEO: Fleetwood Mac headline Classic West festival at Dodger Stadium

Fleetwood Mac headlined night two of The Classic West Festival at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on July 16, and video from the weekend event is streaming online.

Topping a bill that featured Journey and Earth, Wind & Fire, the group delivered a 20-song set of classics and hits that opened with “The Chain” from their mega-selling 1977 album, “Rumours.”

“You Make Loving Fun” and “Dreams” from the record were followed by tracks from 1979’s “Tusk” before, as Forbes notes, the band delivered “Landslide” as a tribute to late Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey, who passed away early last year.

“I’d like to dedicate that song to Glenn Frey, who was my friend,” Nicks said after the tune. “And I’d like to dedicate it to his son, who did such a beautiful job last night under so much pressure. That was for big Glenn and little Glenn.”

Frey’s 24-year-old son, Deacon, joined The Eagles lineup alongside new addition Vince Gill to headline Classic West’s opening night on July 15.

Fleetwood Mac closed out their main set with the high-energy, “Go Your Own Way”, before performing “Don’t Stop” as an encore.

The weekend package now moves east to New York’s Citi Field to do it all over again on July 29 and 30.
