REVIEW: Stevie Nicks "Playing over a two hour set, Nicks showed she still has it going on"

Rock Legend Stevie Nicks Wows Seneca Niagara Casino 
By Melanie Hulick

The stage was set to receive one of Rock and Rolls best female vocalists at Seneca Niagara Events Center Saturday, July 7th, 2012.The sold out crowd was already in a frenzy before Nicks even took to the stage, as the lights went down and Nicks began singing a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll” from backstage while the band members, one by one, took their places, followed by Nicks, to flashing strobe lights and cheers loud enough to bring the house down. 

Nicks delivered a show that had something for everyone of her fans with some Fleetwood Mac hits, some solo works and the purpose of the 2012 tour, her newest material from her album “In Your Dreams”. The singer-songwriter made it clear when she said, “This is not a greatest hits tour. I will do some songs from my solo career, and yes, some from my Fleetwood Mac days, but this tour is about my new album. I have to move on to new things, move forward,” she added.

This was my first time seeing Nicks in concert and I was sure she would put on a good show, but I wasn’t expecting what I noticed. At times it was as if she was almost possessed by the music… not in a the sense of it being a bad thing, but like you could almost see the music enter her body as she would “air” play the different instruments along with the musicians, fingering the chords like she was the instrument herself, and she would sway as if she was being directed to in a way from inside her. Then I thought… music is something you hear, but maybe if you could “see” music, this is what it would look like.
