Photos, Video: A Star-Studded Tribute To Fleetwood Mac At The Fonda
Last night was the first of two Fleetwood Mac tribute shows, each featuring a number of musicians and entertainers doing their best Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham.
Fleetwood Mac Fest took place last night at The Fonda in Hollywood and, if you like what you see, they're doing it all again tonight. Proceeds from the show benefit the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, a nonprofit that offers aid to musicians in need, and the Sweet Stuff Foundation, a nonprofit that helps folks in the music industry and their families in the event of illness of disability.
At last night's show, Juliette Lewis energetically performed "Stand Back," which LAist photographer Spencer Harding noted as his favorite number of the night, while Dead Sara's Emily Armstrong sang "Edge of Seventeen," and Courtney Love belted out "Silver Springs." Other highlights included Jamestown Revival's performance of "Never Going Back Again," Sarah Silverman and Butch Walker singing "Go Your Own Way," Dhani Harrison & Mereki performing "Landslide," Noah Gunderson covering "Little Lies," and Mark Ronson and Alison Mosshart's rendition of "Dreams." For the finale, there was a group singalong of "The Chain" and "Don't Stop." Other performers including Carly Rae Jepsen, Brian Bell of Weezer, Phases, Lucius, Will Forte and Karen, Jane's Addicition's Perry Ferrel, Bijou Phillips and others.
The Fonda is located at 6126 Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood. Doors at 7 p.m., show at 8 p.m. Tickets are $100, plus fees.
