Fleetwood Mac has found new fans thanks to a dude skating to work, drinking cranberry juice and singing along to “Dreams” on TikTok. Now, their best of will be given the Candlelight treatment in the architecturally love-it-or-hate-it Sydney Masonic Centre—the imposing building that appears to have a tower balancing on a pinhead above.
It’s a night not to be missed for fans both new and old.
Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours is often listed as one of the greatest albums of all time and the hit single “Dreams” was just that, a hit single that propelled the band’s fame even further.
Forty-odd years after its release, though, you can join pianist Alex Raineri and cellist David Friesberg for a glowing performance surrounded by hundreds of candles. Songs from the “culturally, historically, or artistically significant” dubbed album Rumours include the US number-one hit “Dreams” as well as “The Chain”, “Go Your Own Way”, “You Make Loving Fun”, “Don’t Stop” and “Never Going Back Again”.
Other songs by Fleetwood Mac to feature in the 60-65 minute illuminated performance include the ultra-singable “Everywhere”, the Stevie Nicks’ signature tune “Rhiannon”, the emotional “Landslide” and the love song “Say You Love Me” as well as a few others that will certainly wind back the clock and have you lip-syncing just like Nathan Apodaca—Fleetwood Mac’s viral-hit sensation.
Candlelight: Best of Fleetwood Mac takes place on Friday 15 July in the Sydney Masonic Centre—one of the city’s finest examples of Brutalist architecture. There will be two performances on the night at 6:30pm and 8:30pm with doors opening thirty minutes prior to each performance so that audiences, who will be sitting on all four sides of the stage, can come in, sit down and take in the unique setting as they await for “Dreams” to resound.
