STEVIE BOOKS FEBRUARY INDUSTRY GIG

Stevie Nicks is joining us for 
Sunset Sessions 2011!!!
According to a facebook posting by Sunset Sessions and M:M Music, Stevie has been added to the line up of performers. Friday Feb 18th looks like the likely night she will play as it's Warner Bros Late Night Lounge - but given that it's a 3 day event it could be any one of the nights.

Other Warner acts appearing: The Belle Brigade, Everest, Iron & Wine, and k.d. lang.

Info:
Michele Clark's Sunset Sessions is presented by M:M Music and Quick Clear Music with All Access. It was Broadcast by KPRI. It's an industry only event that brings together radio stations, music supervisors from film and television, record companies, artist managers, and some of the freshest new talent along with some legendary favorites. Its main purpose is to expose the tastemakers of our industry, and in particular the Triple A format, to the bright stars of tomorrow. The event is held over 3 nights.

Website

M:M  Music Weekly Update:
"We’re now just 3 weeks away from this year’s Sunset Sessions and several acts have been added to the already stellar line up including Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Stevie Nicks; former Babys and Bad English frontman John Waite; who scored several hits as a solo artist; and the critically acclaimed Makepeace Brothers. You can see the entire line up and schedule of events at www.sunsetsessions.org. If you haven’t registered yet; you can do so on the website and join the close to 40 Triple A radio stations (as well as a few HAC PD’s); and around 50 of the top film & television music supervisors for 40 bands over 3 days; some of the most innovative panels; great food; and gorgeous surroundings.

So let's see... What happened today...

Well, we heard that Ian Drew, Senior Music Editor at Us Weekly, was listening to an advance copy of Stevie's new album today... probably not just for his listening pleasure, but you never know... I suspect it was for some sort of  review in a future US Magazine... He writes a music, tv and movies column for US Magazine Ian in your Ear.   His two reassuring comments, not that we need to be reassured at this point, given the fact that everyone that has heard this new album has totally been blown away by it, citing it as the best of her career.

His comments that we were happy to take in:

"And guess who has new Stevie Nicks advance music 
pumping in his office right now? Yep, me!"

"And btw, this Stevie Nicks album? Probably the best 
of her career. Yeah. Out May 3. Get ready."

Beast Called Fame Video
But prior to that... or during all that, a little bit of both... Dave Stewart popped up on the web a video of new music "Beast Called Fame", a new tune from his album due out in May.  It was filmed during his first live show playing new music in Nashville this past October.  What was interesting though, and I may have taken this the wrong way, but Dave may have suggested that smaller venues will be played when he and Stevie get together at some point this year to promote their products...  

Dave Stewart: "Stevie fans go here Youtube now this could be fun before Stevie Comes on Stage ;) Rock and Fucking Roll !"

Nickslive: "What would be great is seeing her/you in a small venue like this RT @DaveStewart: Stevie fans go here http://bit.ly/ggKq77 this could be fun."

Dave Stewart: "@Nickslive you may be very lucky :)"

Now Dave is also working on a film about Stevie, or a documentary, not really clear what it's going to be, but it's a film... and he's stated that he wants to screen the film in indie type movie houses, which would be smaller venues.  So really you could take his comment both ways.  In any case... the idea is out there, and maybe they'll mix it up, playing smaller venues and the larger venues.

Also, and this will be of particular interest to fans in the UK.  "Ghost The Musical" to which Dave is writing the music for opens in London in July I believe, previews start at the end of June, and I'm sure Dave's making the trip.  It just might be the perfect opportunity for him and Stevie to head on over to the UK - hit a few theatres around the country and make some noise...  There's a huge contingency of fans that would love to see Stevie perform solo over there, trust me, I hear from them!  I mean it's been over 20 years already since she last toured the UK so it's LONG, LONG, LONG over due!

All I know is that from a fan stand point, WOW would it be great to see a Nicks show in a smaller venue like The Belcourt or any one of the thousands of small venues that dot North America.  Will it happen?... That's anyones guess, and probably a long shot, but nobody believed Stevie would record another album either and here we are on the cusp of a new album release.

FLEETWOOD MAC LIVE IN NASHVILLE 1977 by Bob Lefsetz

Really great write up published today on the "Lefsetz Letter".  
"GOLD DUST WOMAN"
[He's ultimately speaking about the stellar May 21, 1977 Live in Nashville Bootleg]
_________________________________________________________________


I saw Fleetwood Mac open a stadium show back in ‘75, before Anaheim had bleachers in the outfield, back when the Angels sucked and no band ever emerged from Orange County.

It was a summer of stadium shows. Today only Taylor Swift can sell 50,000 tickets, anybody else who says they can lies, or plays with a plethora of other acts. But back in the day, these giant clusterfucks were de rigueur. How many Days On The Green did Bill Graham have?


And I knew the act as a blues band. And there was that great latter day record, from "Kiln House", featuring Christine McVie on harmony vocals, "Station Man", which I heard intermittently on the radio and cranked back when you couldn’t hear your favorite music on demand unless you owned it, back when being a rock chick didn’t mean showing your tits but being so cool as to be a goddess, who was the last true rock chick, Chrissie Hynde? She’s STILL cool!

And that afternoon Christine sat at the keyboard and played my favorite new track, "Over My Head", and it sure sounded nice, but I did not buy the album, because I wasn’t buying anything, I was on the road, in L.A. for the summer, between winters in Salt Lake.

Stevie Nicks Approached GLEE Creator For a Guest Spot!

Quinn, played by Dianna Agron on Glee tweeted last night (Feb 8th) the following:

"Stevie Nicks and Gwyneth Paltrow and Gwyneth Paltrow and Stevie Nicks. Wonderful and unexpected day."

Speculation runs from Gwyneth is singing "Landslide" on the show, to Gwyneth singing "Landslide" with Stevie making an appearance.  Let's hope!

Inside the Hot Business of 'Glee'
The Hollywood Reporter

In the latest edition of The Hollywood Reporter- on shelves Thursday, Glee creator Ryan Murphy is quoted with the following:

"Besides, Murphy adds, tons of top-notch talent are clamoring to get on Glee. The latest to approach him for guest spots: Stevie Nicks and Jennifer Lopez, both of whom he’s trying to write in".

Personally, I think it would be a smart move by Stevie and would give her and her music great exposure bringing it to a whole new generation that otherwise may not be aware of who she is.

Will They Be The Taylor/King of 2011?

Hopes are high that the pairing of Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks for the Heart and Soul tour of North American arenas will strike the kind of boomer gold that led James Taylor and Carole King to a $62 million gross in 2010 - the sixth-highest among all tours for the year, according to billboard boxscore.

"Secret Love" by Stevie Nicks | Rolling Stone Music | Album Reviews

"Secret Love" by Stevie Nicks
A glimpse of In Your Dreams,
La Gold Dust Woman's first new music in a decade is a glimpse of In Your Dreams, a collaboration with Eurythmics' synth-pop scientist Dave Stewart. (It's due in May.) "Come on, it's time to go upstairs" she begins over clipped Eighties drum thwaps and a witchy shroud of electronics, which give way to backward beats and a glassy guitar line. Her voice is strong and the come-on is inviting — at least until it evolves into something far more complicated. Romance is like that sometimes.

MAY 3rd Fan Event To Mark The Release of the New STEVIE NICKS "IN MY DREAMS" CD

Here's something that some of you might enjoy taking part in....

Global Twirling for Peace (for Stevie)

Check out the Facebook group and ATTEND

At 6 pm wherever you are on MAY 3rd, STOP what you are doing and TWIRL! If you can get it on Youtube, even better!! TWIRL for STEVIE. TWIRL FOR PEACE! Let's TWIRL TOGETHER.

WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! ... In a BETTER WAAAAY!

The simple things are what really matters - Simple things like twirling. Silly as it sounds... And in a way, they really do unite us and get to feel a little harmony ... if only for a moment. It's like that feeling Stevie gives us when she plays Edge of Seventeen at the end of every concert. That, my friends, is love... Believe me it is.

IS "SECRET LOVE" THE NEW STEVIE NICKS SINGLE??

WHY YES IT IS....

(LOS ANGELES – January 13, 2011) ROD STEWART and STEVIE NICKS announced on The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing today, Thursday, January 13, (check local listings) that they have joined forces for one of the most anticipated musical events of the year, THE HEART & SOUL TOUR. Launching March 20, 2011 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the tour will unite two of music’s most legendary forces for a series of arena concerts throughout North America - with performances already confirmed in New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, Tampa, Montreal and more. Fans can tune-in to the show on Thursday, January 13 and log-on to watch their exclusive interview and performances. The tour will feature both artists performing all rock & roll sets from their incomparable catalogs of hits and backed by an incredible band of musicians and stage production. Tickets go on sale beginning Friday, January 21, visit rodstewartfanclub.com for details.

Said Rod Stewart: “We haven’t yet begun rehearsals but I can already tell you this, with Stevie on board our audiences are in store for an evening of pure rock & roll music. I’m already thinking about which of my old favourites to bring back and vocally, I think we’ve both begun thinking about which songs might be great fun and well-suited for a duet or two.” 

In a career spanning five decades, with an estimated 250 million album and single sales, Rod Stewart is a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and indisputably one of the most successful performers of all time. He finished 2010 at the top of both the touring and album charts - highlighted by his critically-heralded, sold-out first run of concerts at The Colosseum in Las Vegas, a “Boxscore,” chart-topping, 33-date European summer tour which included 4 sold-out dates at London’s O2 Arena. Throughout his prolific career, he’s garnered16-Grammy nominations, including his current for “Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album," and sales of more than one million albums for his 2010 album FLY ME TO THE MOON…THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK, VOLUME V.

Stevie Nicks, Rock and Roll's reigning queen, will be releasing her highly anticipated new CD “IN YOUR DREAMS” on May 3, 2011. The new album, her first album of new material in a decade, was co-produced by former Eurythmic Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard. The new album is now available for fans to pre order at stevienicks.warnerreprise.com. Fans who pre-order the CD will receive an instant download of the record's first single, the Nicks’ penned "Secret Love”. The official release date of the single is February 3rd. Nicks is a multi-Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and member of Fleetwood Mac.

Tickets for THE HEART & SOUL TOUR will go on-sale beginning January 21, 2011 at 10:00 AM local time.

STEVIE GETS SOCIAL... SORT OF

Stevie Nicks (or her label shall I say) Enters The Social Scene
All sites have been made official pages dedicated to Stevie as of this evening... Sarah (Community Manager at Warner Bros Records.) has been tweeting the links to the pages... Check them out!

Knowing it's a label rep doing the socializing makes it a little more plausible since we all know that Stevie doesn't Facebook or Myspace and she DOES NOT TWEET!  All sites/pages are brand spanking new except for the Facebook page - so don't expect too much right now. The Facebook page is sort of new... It's been there awhile just under a different link. Looks like Warners personalized the URL with Stevie's name which changes the link in which to get to the page. All the Facebook people that liked the page previously seem to be intact... So in a way it is new... Hopefully Warners engages fans and really takes this opportunity to involve people... I think they'd enjoy it!  And everyone is super excited and can't wait for May 3rd and for what's to come this year for Stevie!
