Gig #003 Fleetwood Mac, The Adventurers @ Wembley Arena 25th May 1988

It was deep into my GCSE exam period, I believe the friend I went with may have had an exam the next afternoon actually, but we weren't going to let that stop us.

Fleetwood Mac were on their "Tango in the Night" tour and playing Wembley Arena. Niot onyl was Tango in the Night one of their biggest albums spawning some great tracks, but the line-up was one fo their best (that fragmented shortly after the tour) - Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevuie Nicks.

They played a brilliant set that housed not only a good chunk of 'Tango in the Night' but also their back catalogue such as The Chain (from Rumours) and Sara (from Tusk).

In support they had The Adventures, a band getting significant airplay at the time with their hit single "Broken Land" *(that was the most played song on Radio 1 in 1988) and album The Seas of Love.
