After more than a decade, Christine McVie tours with Fleetwood Mac

Big news for boomers: Christine McVie, who has not toured with classic-rock-era superstars Fleetwood Mac since 1998, has rejoined Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks for the “On With The Show” tour.

Bass, sweat and cheers for Katy Perry at Tacoma Dome

Artifice is inherent to pop music, but you still need actual talent to pull it off. Katy Perry might not have said anything of much importance Saturday night at the Tacoma Dome, but her real trick was making you not care one bit.

Before a predictable sold-out mix of screaming preteen girls (and their surprisingly enthusiastic parents), Perry opened the “Prismatic” tour with her hit single “Roar,” rising from the depths of the stage enclosed in a cocoon of LED panels. The crowd dutifully provided their own roars as Perry led them in a triumphant sing-along, opening with a moment most artists would kill to close their sets with.

Nearly a year after its release, Katy Perry’s “Prism,” which spawned her biggest single yet, “Roar,” is still in the top quarter of the Billboard 200 album chart. No doubt her Prismatic World Tour, which will fill the Tacoma Dome Saturday, Sept. 13, isn’t hurting those numbers.

After a career spanning more than 30 years that has included a record 60 No. 1 hits, George Strait, 61, has said he will retire when his current tour ends in June.

But it sure didn’t feel like Strait was retiring Saturday night at the Tacoma Dome, when he wowed a sold-out crowd with a masterful, career-spanning set that lasted well over two hours and touched on some of his biggest hits.

“I would love to see you guys make out for this next song,” said Miley Cyrus Sunday at the Tacoma Dome, introducing “Adore You,” a vulnerable ballad off her smash album “Bangerz.”

Kissing broke out throughout the arena as the influential, 21-year-old pop star belted out the tune in her countryish alto. Cell phones waved like lighters in the crowd. It was a lovely moment.
