(Review) Stevie Nicks and Rod Stewart - Hollywood Bowl (Night #1)

Rod Stewart is entertaining as ever at the Bowl
by STEVE FRYER
The OC Register

"Stevie Nicks opened with an 11-song show, and later joined Rod on stage for “Young Turks’ (his song) and “Leather and Lace” (her song, written and recorded with Don Henley). Both were fine collaborations, with their voices mixing well enough that, sure, they should go forward with it.

Nicks’ voice sounded better than ever, especially during the encore of “Love Is” during which she was accompanied by only piano and two supporting singers. She did a couple of her Fleetwood Mac hits, with “Gold Dust Woman” and “Rhiannon” given epic instrumental introductions that were a touch melodramatic. The songs are strong enough on their own, let ‘em breathe."
