LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM "BY INVITATION ONLY" LIVE IN NASHVILLE



By Invitation Only- Live In Nashville [Import]
Lindsey Buckingham & Little Big Town

Released on June 1, 2010.
Format: Audio CD or DVD
Label: Immortal Eur/Zoom

2010 live archive release from the singer/songwriter and Fleetwood Mac leader, recorded in Nashville on October 5th, 2006. Features solo and Mac hits including 'Go Your Own Way', 'The Chain', 'Bones' and 'Big Love'.

Okay, This strikes me as a bit odd!  But I'll go along with it for now.  I saw this pop up on Amazon awhile ago without the cover art and just passed it off as either an error, or a bootleg of some sort (and maybe it still is), especially after a dvd was released of Stevie at the US Festival... and the Mirage Australian dvd... both of which couldn't have been band sanctioned... But anyway, here's the details on it:





[Edit June 21, 2010] Please note that this, as I suspected, is basically a bootleg being sold on Amazon... The quality, visually and audibly is substandard at best.... If you were lucky enough to record this when it was on TV, that would be far superior to what is being offered here... Buyer beware!

Man on the Street: The Night of a Thousand Stevies

For the twentieth anniversary of the annual event honoring solo artist and former Fleetwood Mac lead singer Stevie Nicks on Friday, we sent our Tim Murphy to investigate. There were live performances (and lip-synched ones), dancing, and a lot of witchy drag queens. As you can see in this video, Murphy changed the night just by being there. Also, perhaps, the night changed him.

MICK FLEETWOOD BLUES BAND TOUR IN JEOPARDY

Kansas State Fair loses another big act
Victoria Advocate

ZZ TOP have cancelled another one of their formerly committed to dates with The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band as their show opener.

Officials of the Kansas State Fair are scrambling to fill not one but two slots in their music lineup after the second cancellation by a top grandstand act.

Fair officials said Tuesday that ZZ Top scratched its Sept. 19 performance. The venerable Texas blues-rock trio has accepted an invitation instead to tour with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - a tour with no Midwestern dates.

Fair director Denny Stoecklein said ZZ Top and its opening act, the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, had already sold 1,599 tickets in the week since tickets went on sale. Fleetwood's band also canceled.

"We are very disappointed in this action," said Stoecklein. "ZZ Top and its management authorized us to announce the concert, authorized us to go on sale with tickets, and had issued a contract."

Stoecklein said he has contacted Kansas Attorney General Steve Six's office to explore possible recourse and recover damages associated with the cancellation.

STEVIE NICKS ADDS INITIAL SUMMER DATES

KSHE 95 = REAL ROCK RADIO: "STEVIE NICKS ADDS INITIAL SUMMER DATES

5/13/2010

Stevie Nicks has announced three East Coast summer dates for late August -- August 25th in Verona, New York at the Event Center At Turning Stone Resort Casino; August 27th in Atlantic City, New Jersey at the Mark G. Etess Arena; and August 28th in Mashantucket, Connecticut at MGM Grand At Foxwoods. Although no other dates have been posted, more shows are expected to be announced.

After six years of massive hits with Fleetwood Mac, 1981's Bella Donna solidified her position as a major mover in '80s rock. Nicks says that she hopes that her decades of singing, writing and performing have helped inspire future generations of women to do the same: 'I hope that I'm a part of the reason why they make music, you know? I always wanted to be inspirational to other singers, and I wanted to be a success story for women where they could say, 'Well, she made it. I could make it, too.' It seems that somehow I've managed to do that. I never really tried to do that, but it seems that that has happened.'

Nicks has been recording a joint project with the Eurythmics' Dave Stewart. Little is known about the joint set except for the fact that violinist Ann Marie Calhoun has contributed to some tracks. There's been no word as to when new album will be released."

It's one thing to buy someone's music and declare yourself a fan. It's quite another to worship a musician so wholly and completely, you organize a massive costumed tribute-fest to her and then keep it going for 20 straight years.

STEVIE NICKS BOOKS TAHOE GIG IN AUGUST

Lake Tahoe News

Stevie Nicks, the legendary American singer-songwriter, best known for her work with Fleetwood Mac and an extensive solo career, which collectively have produced more than 40 Top 50 hits and has sold nearly 120 million albums, is set to hit the stage for the first time ever at Harveys Outdoor Arena in Lake Tahoe on Aug. 6 at 8pm.

Tickets for the Stateline show go on sale May 22 at 10am.

The voice and songwriting talent of Nicks, as a solo artist and as a member of Fleetwood Mac, is truly the stuff of legend. Indisputably, one of the most successful female artists in rock history, she is noteworthy for an extraordinary career that includes multiple Grammy awards, numerous Gold and Platinum awards and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

After joining Fleetwood Mac in 1975, Nicks and her band released an eponymous collection of recordings that went straight to No. 1. The follow-up album, Rumours (1977), became a record-setting hit. It spent more than 31 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200; and earned the group a Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1978. Nicks’ song “Dreams,” inspired by the group’s dissolving relationships, was the band’s first No. 1 single.

 In between releasing albums with Fleetwood Mac, Nicks recorded her first solo album in 1981, Bella Donna, which went on to sell over 5 million copies. Stevie continued on at a prodigious rate, recording 1982’s Mirage with Fleetwood Mac and her second solo effort, The Wild Heart, in 1983. Throughout the next decade, she continued to tour and turn out independent records as well as albums with Fleetwood Mac, including the solo effort, The Other Side of the Mirror (1989), Behind the Mask with Fleetwood Mac (1990), and a solo compilation, Timespace (1991).


In 1997, Fleetwood Mac reunited and released The Dance. The related tour earned them $36 million. Nicks also put out a boxed set dubbed Enchanted, and added two songs to the soundtrack for Practical Magic (1998). That same year, Fleetwood Mac was given one of the greatest honors in the world of rock: induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 


 Her last solo album of original material, Trouble in Shangri-La, earned her a Grammy nomination and she just performed over 80 dates in 2009 with Fleetwood Mac. Last year she also released an amazing live DVD & CD compilation entitled, Live In Chicago.

Tickets are $49.50, $89.50, $159.50 plus applicable service charges.

Tickets available at all Ticketmaster locations and online at www.apeconcerts.com and www.ticketmaster.com.
