After Taylor Swift’s sold out RED World Tour show at the Pepsi Center Sunday night, it might be tough to settle for bands that walk out onto the stage and just perform. From the moment Swift began belting out the vocally demanding “State of Grace,” one of 12 from the 17-song set list that came from the new album, “Red,” Swift put the crowd on notice that she’s making the transition from girl next door to coolly calculating commercial artist.
Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham held hands as they walked onto stage at the Pepsi Center on Saturday night. Here is a relationship in flux for decades — one that has inspired some of Fleetwood Mac’s most memorable works of heartbreak and romanticism — and it may finally be in a comfortable place. What followed was a reflective and ambitious two and a half hour set from the nearly complete “Rumors” lineup of Nicks, Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie.
