Fleetwood Mac in Concert at Consol, Aimee Mann at New Hazlett Theater (CP’s Fri. 4/26/13)

1) Fleetwood Mac brings their cavalcade of hit songs to the stage of the Consol Energy Center tonight. The band has existed in several different combinations since the late 1960’s, but they really hit their stride when Stevie Nicks, and her partner in life and music, Lindsey Buckingham joined the group in 1974, Fleetwood Mac’s 1975 album, Fleetwood Mac, produced several chart risers including “Over My Head,” “Rhiannon,” and “Landslide.” Relationship strife and breakups became the catalyst for the next Fleetwood Mac recording, Rumours, which won the Grammy Award for Record of the Year in 1977 and remains one of the best-selling albums of all time. Buckingham’s “Go Your Own Way,” Nicks’ “Dreams” and Christine McVie’s “Don’t Stop” (a Bill Clinton 1992 election song) all climbed the charts and received  heavy FM radio rotation. 8 p.m. 1001 Fifth Ave., Uptown.

2) At the New Hazlett Theater singer/songwriter and guitarist Aimee Mann is in concert. Mann who once fronted the 1980’s group Til Tuesday, has had a successful solo career with songs that are melodic, smart and humorous. “Pavlov’s Bell,” “That’s Just What You Are” and “Freeway” provide great examples of her songwriting. Mann is married to musician Michael Penn (brother of actors Sean and the late Chris Penn). Special guest is punk rocker Ted Leo. 8 p.m. 6 Allegheny Square East, North Side.

3) Stage Right Productions presents Seussical the Musical through Sunday at the Palace Theatre. All your favorite Dr. Suess characters will be there including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz and lazy Mayzie. You’ll also meet Jojo, a little boy who dreams big. The Seussical fun tour includes stops at Circus McGurkus, Jungle of Nool and the invisible world of the Whos. 7:30 p.m. 33 W. Otterman St., Greensburg.

4) Rockers, Airborne, with Jeff Jimerson, play a gig at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille tonight. 9 p.m. 103 Slade Ln, Warrendale.
