for over 2 and a half hours, every song was a hit. every song had a place in my heart, in the fabric of my childhood and my family life. i held my parents’ hands and screamed the words. the band were completely musically tight - in particular stevie’s voice was sharp and clear and full. STEVIE. how purely magical it was to see her in front of me, my crescent moon mother, in the flesh, all in black, her hair playing tricks with the light. there was so much love coming from the band directed at us but mainly at each other - I can’t even tell you how special it was to see lindsey kiss stevie’s hand, and speak softly in her ear. it made me believe what lindsey said about the making of ‘rumours’, and where they are now - that it was destiny.
