Stevie Nicks American Thunder Music Festival Airs March 18th

Hold on to your microphones... Stevie's American Thunder Music Festival appearance will be broadcast on HDNet 
March 18, 2012

The inaugural American Thunder Music Festival, a benefit concert for the Bob Woodruff Foundation, made history in front of an audience of over 50,000 fans on August 11, 2011 in Sturgis, SD when Jeff Bridges hosted and performed along with Stevie Nicks and John Fogerty.

Stevie Nicks performed in the midst of a howling thundering windstorm and tornado warnings.  The dramatic performance of Stevie performing "Soldiers Angel", one of 4 songs she performed that day, was captured on film from the side of the stage and published on youtube shortly after.

This will be a show you do not want to miss!  The images and film piece of Stevie performing in that wind storm have already gone down in the history books as some of the most dramatic of her career!  Just one more moment from this past amazing year!  The video below of her singing "Soldiers Angel" backs it up.  

In hindsight it's a little scary watching the footage knowing what happened in Indianapolis during the Sugarland concert and the outdoor stage just a few days later.  You can see the nervousness in Stevie's handlers on the side of the stage - but Stevie soldiers on!  Thankfully nothing happened and we are left with another great performance - and one to look forward to in the next while on TV.


AIR DATE
American Thunders broadcast partners include HDNet which have the show listed and airing March 18, 2012.

I noticed when Stevie toured the US last summer she wore leg warmers over her boots. In this clip and on her Australiam tour she did not. If she's gonna wear the cut off short boots on stage she looks much better with the leg warmers on. Otherwise it looks like old granny boots and ages her terribly.

Rock on Gold Dust Woman!

Such a definitive performance so late in her career. Stevie is going full force, loving every moment of it...and it's showing in everything she's been doing.

Can't wait to see the professional recording of the performance!!!!

I'm not sure I understand this article. Is there professional-grade video of this performance as well as audio? I hope there is, because if this stunning live performance of a brand new song from IYD got out there, it could breathe life back into the album's chart life AND provide Stevie with a song she could absolutely NAIL in TV appearances....btw, this video gives me chills and brings tears - as powerful as she's ever been, and that includes vintage "Rhiannon"....

Oh, duh - forget that part about whether it's going to be on TV or not - IT'S GOING TO BE!!!!! If it captures even half of what the YouTube footage does, then it should be something very special.....

Well she has come full circle, and is more powerful than ever.. This is the Stevie Nicks I fell in love with in my teens, when she first came to my area as Rosebud era, and then later in the Tusk era. And the woman keeps getting better. This one is a hall of fame winner. Oh the drama of this video. It was simly magic!

Who cares if she wears leg warmers??????

I like the short boots but I would prefer the longer, ankle length flowy skirts, like when she performed last with Don Henley, if my memory serves me correctly. But with the long dress she wore the reeboks and don't like those. I certainly understand it though.
