Guitarists can only become great by practicing for hundreds of hours or winning one thumb-wrestling match against Jimi Hendrix's ghost. Take in mysterious talents with this GrouponLive deal to see Lindsey Buckingham at the Tower Theatre in Fresno. For $24, you get one ticket for reserved seating in rows Q–CC on Wednesday, May 9, at 8 p.m. (a $48.50 value).
Singer, composer, guitar maverick, and Fleetwood Mac vet Lindsey Buckingham strips down to nothing but his signature Rick Turner Model 1 ax and his instantly recognizable voice. The one-man tour promises new and classic solo hits such as “Trouble” bundled with a hearty crop of Fleetwood Mac favorites. Since the days of jangly singles such as "Go Your Own Way," Lindsey’s solo catalog has gained mass like a snowball rolling down a mountain of powdered sugar. His latest album, Seeds We Sow, is a showcase for melodic intuition and lyrical tales of mortality and transcendence.
Buckingham’s pearl-strands of arpeggios flow through the striking art-deco details of the Tower Theatre. Originally built in 1939 as a movie house for 20th Century Fox, the historic venue pulsates with live sounds in the heart of Fresno’s bustling Tower District. As they make their way in, guests might pause to gawk at the foyer's forest of Italian terrazzo leaves and the Carvart glass etching that guards the lobby.
