The Dance is a live album by British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac, released in 1997. It hailed the return of the band's most successful line-up of Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie, John McVie and Stevie Nicks, who had not released an album together since 1987's Tango in the Night a decade earlier. It was the first Fleetwood Mac release to top the . album charts since 1982's Mirage.

Despite this, the Unplugged-styled setting wasn't ideal for a reunion, since the group decided to devote nearly a quarter of The Dance to new material, inevitably resulting in unfair comparisons to their warhorses. Since there's so much new material, The Dance can't be a truly nostalgic experience either, because the new songs interrupt the flow. Not that they're bad - both Buckingham's gentle "Bleed to Love Her" and nervy "My Little Demon" are first-rate - but they aren't given the full-fledged production they deserve.

New songs like "Temporary One" and "Bleed to Love Her" are fine additions to the canon, while "Everywhere" and "Say You Love Me" both breeze along the way you remember them and manage a reinvention in the live setting. I am a huge Fleetwood Mac fan and this album is a great addition to the collection. I think the mark of a great artist or band is when they sound better live than they do in the studio-I think Fleetwood Mac passes this test here. I was a little disappointed that it didn't have Over My Head, Gold Dust Woman, or Songbird on it, but the selection is still great.

Fleetwood Mac was coming off one of their more disappointing eras. That led the band's most well-known lineup to put aside past differences and reunite for The Dance, which arrived in stores Aug. 19, 1997. Just prior to the return of all three singers, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood attempted to continue unsuccessfully with several new additions. But the success of The Dance – which catapulted to No. 1 on the chart, knocking off red-hot rapper Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs – led Fleetwood Mac to reconsider the future and work in one more tour together. The album would go on to become the fifth best-selling live album of all time in the .

The Dance is an electric mix of Fleetwood Mac’s best. Their 1997 tour was a bit of a reunion, as the band’s personal turmoil had been in full effect. The album remains an iconic example of their creativity and absolute star power as a group over their many years (when the lineup was Nicks, Buckingham, John McVie, Christine McVie and Fleetwood). Featuring USC Trojan Marching Band. Producers Fleetwood Mac, Keith Olsen, Ken Caillat & 2 more. Writers Christine McVie, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham & 2 more. Additional Engineering Lindsey Buckingham.
