Product Description

'Tango In The Night', the video companion to the 1987 album, was filmed at San Francisco's Cow Palace in December 1987. After several years of turmoil and hiatuses, the album and tour marked a stellar return to form for the band. Tracks performed on the night include The Chain, Dreams, Gold Dust Woman, Songbird and Don't Stop.


Recorded in late 1987, Tango in the Night is an hour-long concert that documents a transitional period for Fleetwood Mac, with Lindsey Buckingham, their driving force, having left the band that same year (she returned in 1997). It's a testament to Buckingham's role that it took two guitarist-singers to replace him; but while Billy Burnette and Rick Vito are fine musicians with an abiding respect for the Mac legacy (they perform founding member Peter Green's "Oh Well" and "I Loved Another Woman"), this is a mostly lacklustre affair, lacking Buckingham's fire and eccentric stage presence. Mainstays Mick Fleetwood and John McVie soldier on, as ever, with Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie still on hand as well, and Rumours-era tunes like "Dreams", "Don't Stop" and "The Chain" have a certain timeless appeal. But when a vest equipped with drum and percussion sounds is the highlight of the show (during Fleetwood's solo spot), you know you're not exactly witnessing history in the making. --Sam Graham

4.0 out of 5 stars Buckingham-less, but entertaining 10 Dec 2003
By Steven
This DVD of the San Francisco concert from Fleetwood Mac's 1987-1988 'Tango in the Night' tour is without extras, special features or Lindsey Buckingham. However, the band manages to put on a sterling performance, with replacement guitarists Rick Vito and Billy Burnette faring more than adequately in the wake of Buckingham's acrimonious departure. Christine McVie shines with live versions of her bittersweet pop classic 'Little Lies' and 'Everywhere', and Stevie Nicks adds to the occasion with polished versions of several of her well-known songs and a thundering rendition of her solo hit 'Stand Back'. Despite the change in lineup (as ever with this band), the setlist is strong, and so is the performance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Hair, Big Music 20 Oct 2004
By pj
I enjoyed this 1980s concert from the Mac although it is certainly a very obvious product of that era in terms of cuts, visual style etc. There is Stevie's big hair, Billy Burnette and Rick Vito's mullets, but really the music is great. Coming off the back of their Tango in the Night album, the two ladies of the band really come into their own with live recordings of Little Lies and Seven Wonders, as well as Christine's underestimated Isn't It Midnight. Even though Lindsey Buckingham had left the band at this stage the DVD is a good look back at some brilliant pop and horrendous fashion sense!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album, but no Lindsey on the video... 7 April 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Tango In the Night is one of my very favourite FM albums but by the time they came to do the tour for the album Lindsey Buckingham had left and been replaced by Billy Burnette and Rick Vito. The video also seems to have lots and lots of close ups of Stevie Nicks, which i can understand as she is possibly the most popular member of the band, but after a while it does get a bit annoying! Anyway the songs are still great and if you can put up with Lindsey Buckingham's absence then I'd recommend buying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this band 19 Dec 2004
I have to say I'm an 80s child and Tango in the Night was always my favourite Fleetwood Mac album, mainly because of 'Little Lies'.
All my favourites are on this concert dvd except for 'Family Man' which I do like listening to and I have to say I really enjoy watching this DVD when bored.
For me, the best part of the DVD is 'Dreams' as its a song that I wasn't overally fond of beforehand but watching Stevie Nicks close-up is moving as you believe what she's saying (she was going through a break-up at this point). Very sad but lovely version of the song.
I enjoy the live versions of 'Seven Wonders', 'Everywhere' and the brilliant 'Isn't It Midnight', but 'Little Lies' is a tad boring (though Rick Vito's vocals are pretty cool).
All in all a brilliant dvd but I'd really love to see a Fleetwood Mac DVD that wasn't concert footage rather the original videos (very much like trying to buy KISS original videos, impossible)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Rock'n'Roll 10 Sep 2007
This DVD is technically superb. The shots are crystal clear, the editing cohesive, the sound superbly recorded and the band is highly competent. And therein lies the problem - mere competency just ain't rock'n'roll. The music is devoid of risk, edge, grit or the extremes of emotion. If anything, the impressive production values add to the feeling of watching a sanitized representation of a Fleetwood Mac concert. Mick Fleetwood's percussion on 'Rumours' and 'Tusk' sounded fantastic because he employed subtlety and could be heard to be striking traditional instruments made of wood. But the drums on this DVD have the seismic thud of processed '80's percussion. In fact, every voice and instrument somehow sounds equally and deafeningly loud. The overall effect is actually so 'digital' that the soundtrack has a slightly harsh timbre. This is Fleetwood Mac without the personnel and the ethos that separated it from other soft rock bands of the late '80's. And it shows.
