Fleetwood Mac tribute show returns to Prescott
Mirage – Visions of Fleetwood Mac” is returning to Prescott, once again performing at the Elks Theatre and Performing Arts Center this weekend.
When the tribute band came to Prescott last October, they had a video of Stevie Nicks singing “Rhiannon” that was matched to singer Michelle Tyler’s voice. It had a lot of imagery and will be brought back for this show, Tyler said. They’re also changing up the set list, she said.
“We always do something different,” Tyler said. “We never do the same thing twice.”
Additionally, while the real Fleetwood Mac let Lindsey Buckingham go, this version of the band still has theirs, she said. As such, the audience is going to get the classic five-person lineup that they’re used to seeing with Fleetwood Mac.
Performing at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 9, Tickets are $25 for adults and $22 for seniors and can be purchased online at www.prescottelkstheater.com, by calling 928-777-1370 or at the door one hour prior to the performance.
Tyler said that her version of Nicks has caught the attention of the real singer. Nicks had called and heard Tyler sing one of her shows over the phone and said she sounded really good, Tyler said. She and her husband were invited to meet her during one of Nicks’ solo tours.
“That’s about as good of an endorsement anybody’s going to get out of her,” Tyler said.
The fans have also given them their seal of approval as well, she said. They recently did a show in El Paso and more than 1,000 seats were filled. it’s not just the people over 40 either, young people around 20 and younger are coming to see them too.
Tyler said she enjoys performing all of Fleetwood Mac’s songs and that their show is an all-hit show. Out of all of them, her favorites to perform are a tie between “Silver Springs” and “Landslide.”
“Both of those songs are so meaningful to so many people,” she said, mentioning that the former is “the ultimate breakup song.”
