Review: Stevie Nicks Estero, FL "Nicks proved why she’s a legend"

Classic Stevie Nicks ends solo tour with heartfelt show at Germain Arena
By Tom Hanson

Photo Gallery

ESTERO — Stevie Nicks called the final stop of her “In Your Dreams” tour bittersweet.

For her fans, the two-hour performance Thursday night at Germain Arena was just sweet.

Nicks didn’t sell out the 5,000-seat venue, but her vintage voice filled the void for the baby boomer-centric crowd. She might be 64, but her classic hits and signature sound never get old.

With her sing-along lyrics, trademark melodies, a handful of new tracks off her latest album and stories behind the songs, Nicks proved why she’s a legend. She also proved sequins, shawls, flowing black outfits and long blonde hair never go out of style.

She ended the two-summer tour with “Love Is,” as she explained, a customary piano ballad encore. And then she professed her love for creating new music, touring and her faithful fans.

“I’m going to leave my heart here,” Nicks said right before her final bow. “I look forward to some rest, but I am going to miss singing some of these new songs.”

Nicks started out the show by slaying Led Zepplin’s “Rock and Roll.” With a montage of rock legends from the Rolling Stones to Paul McCartney flashing on the video screen behind her, the Fleetwood Mac frontwoman fit right in.

She was stuck in the ‘70s and that’s not bad. It was a pretty good decade for the singer-songwriter. And when the band went silent for the final lonely lonely lonely lonely time, Nicks’ unmistakable voice popped, showing she can still rock after 40 years in the business.

Her vocals matched the long, gold chain around her neck and the shimmering silver bangles on her wrists as she rattled off her repertoire of chart-topping hits and peppered in a few new songs along the way.

And for every hit she had a story.

She said she was proud of writing Fleetwood Mac’s only No. 1 song just before belting out “Dreams.”

She showed off a gold-dotted shawl after singing “Stand Back,” stating that it was the original garment worn in the 1985 MTV video.

She stripped-down the beginning of “Rhiannon” and then told the crowd she wrote it back in 1973, two years before joining Fleetwood Mac.

(I love the little dance she does at the 4:20 mark where she spins around)

She said 1973 was a great year for her as she wrote many hits that year.

She recalled sitting on the floor of a cabin in Aspen, Colo., in that same year. Back when, as she said, she wore platform shoes, had big curly hair and the perfect life. She asked to be left alone to write and immediately knew she had a future hit after finishing.

“I remember saying, ‘I think there is something to this song,’” Nicks said. “This little song turned into a ‘Landslide.’”

She said she remembered writing “Landslide” like it was yesterday. She sang it Thursday night like it was yesterday.

And for every new song she had a story.

Musical Memories with Lindsey Buckingham (Dave Grohl Sound City Documentary Clip)

Lindsey Buckingham reminisces. Sound City - A Film by Dave Grohl. Coming Soon.

NEW DATE: Lindsey Buckingham Live - Oklahoma City Nov 3rd

Lindsey will play The Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma on November 3rd.


You choose... Who covered Fleetwood Mac better

Two Fleetwood Mac tunes were performed last night on The Voice.  Alex Marceaux took on Lindsey's Go Your Own Way while Suzanna Choffel landed Stevie's Landslide... Both great covers, but Suzanna get's my vote.  I think America responded really well to Suzanna's rendition as well.  Stevie Nicks was trending world wide on Twitter for awhile shortly after she sang the song..  Who do you think nailed it?

Stevie Nicks Live in St. Petersburg, with Oprah Film Crew in tow!

Couldn't resist posting these two live shots that @GigiGanatra posted on Twitter.. Simply amazing especially this first one!  Great capture during Rhiannon of Stevie tonight in St. Petersburg at The Mahaffey Theater.

It looks like fans were treated with the full on setlist tonight (minus "Ghosts Are Gone") which based on the photo below doesn't look like it made it tonight!  Another change up tonight, is the dress and boots!  Stevie's back to the layered (I don't know what you call it) type of dress, switching out of the frilly ruffled one. And those boots look a little different in the heel..thinner and higher. 

Thanks to @FleurDeBrie for taking a snapshot of the setlist! and to @GigiGanatra for the two stunning shots!  And to @dreamsunwind725 for the disclaimer.

OWN NETWORK Rumour Update:
A few days ago printed online that Oprah's Own Network were rumoured to be coming to the show tonight to film segments of the show for an upcoming project for the OWN Network... Well according to @dreamsunwind725 on Twitter there definitely was a camera crew at the show tonight filming.  Brittany said:

"two cameramen were out tonight & there was a disclaimer on the door that the concert was taped for television purposes." 

She went on to say that,

"most of the show was taped from the front few rows & side of stage. Everytime Stevie walked out camera followed."  

So this is pretty cool, exciting and something new to look forward to!... Whatever Oprah and her Team put together on Stevie I'm sure it'll be amazing and classy and I look forward to seeing it!

@SteviesSara reminded me of the original Tweet that got this whole ball rolling with the OWN Network with this ReTweet from OWN President Sheri Salata:

RT @SheriSalata: @SteviesSara hoping to shoot the brilliant and legendary Ms. Nicks on masterclass soon.

Thanks to everyone tonight for the info and pics tonight...  Next stop St. Augustine tomorrow night.  Just a few tickets left here.

NEW DATE: Lindsey Buckingham to play Little Rock, AR November 5th

Lindsey Buckingham has booked a date at Juanita's Cafe and Bar on Monday, November 5th in Little Rock, AR.

Video: Stevie Nicks Continues To Surprise! "In The City of Dreams"

Photo by Beth Gallups
She did it!!  Stevie Nicks performed "New Orleans" live for the first time EVER! 

Stevie joined Glady's Knight and Melissa Etheridge in New Orleans last night at the AARP Life@50 event closing out the three day national conference with a live show at the New Orleans Arena.  Each played for an hour... Melissa first, Glady's second and Stevie closed the show... Unsure of Stevie's full setlist - it was likely abbreviated given she only played an hour. Mike Valentino and Beth Gallups were there... Below are their tweets to Stevie performing "New Orleans".

I think it's awesome that Stevie sang New Orleans... It's perfect for the city, a great tune and it had to be sung! Who knows when her next opportunity will be.

Thanks to an Anonymous comment we know have last nights setlist!

 1) Rock and Roll
 2) Rhiannon
 3) Landslide
 4) Stand Back
 5) New Orleans
 6) Gold Dust Woman
 7) Soldier's Angel
 8) Edge of Seventeen

Beautifully done!... Wow, this sounds so great!! and she gets a Standing O
Thank you Jackielezzie for capturing this and putting it up so fast!

Glass Tiger Album "Then, Now, Next" Features Mick Fleetwood on Beatles Cover

Glass Tiger "Then, Now, Next" Features Mick Fleetwood playing drums on the Beatles cover song "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away.

Remember Glass Tiger?  They were one of the bigger Canadian bands of the 1980's with a slew of hits in Canada including the US Top 10 hits "Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone)" and "Someday".  Well they're back.. Sort of.

They just finished a Canada tour opening for Roxette this month and in late August released "Then, Now, Next" which is kind of a best of set that includes 4 new songs one of them being the Beatles cover of "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" which features Mick Fleetwood on drums.  Here's what keyboardist/songwriter Sam Reid had to say about the song and Micks involvement.

All members of the band are big Beatles fans, so when the group was looking for another song to add to the package, Reid reminded singer Alan Frew of an earlier recording of the classic "You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away".

“That track goes back to when Frew was working on his solo album 1994 album "Hold On". He was dabbling with that song back then. And we actually had it, and for some reason it never got released. But people should know that that’s Mick Fleetwood (of the legendary band Fleetwood Mac) playing drums on that,” he said.

“When we were looking for songs to put on this compilation, I told Alan I always love his version of that song, that we should put it out. So we played it for the rest of the band, and we fixed it up a little bit here and there. But I loved Mick Fleetwood’s playing on it. It’s very Ringo-like.”

Feat. Sarah McLachlan, Stevie Nicks, Bryan Adams, Jann Arden, Bill Clinton, The Boom Booms and more

When: Saturday

Where: Brockton Point (Stanley Park)

VANCOUVER -- Sarah McLachlan's Voices in the Park concert held Saturday at Brockton Point in Stanley Park was a resounding success.

An estimated 11,000 music fans came through the gates for a full afternoon and evening of music and inspiration featuring performances by McLachlan, Stevie Nicks, Bryan Adams, Hedley, Jann Arden, and a special speech by former U.S. President Bill Clinton, who spoke about the importance of music in his life.

Stevie Nicks opted for a full-on rock display focused on the classics:

a cover of Led Zeppelin's Rock and Roll (fitting), Rhiannon, Gold Dust Woman and so on.

Garbed in the same shiny black-and-gold polka dot cape she said she bought for the Stand Back video in 1983, Nicks did the best she could to fight the evening chill -- "I'm from California," she said.

Her voice was strained, her range much more limited than in her glory days. Nicks wields a bewitching kind of aura but the magic in Edge of Seventeen was all but gone.

The film will eventually be available in all formats according to Dave Stewart, but first the big screen! 

In Your Dreams: Stevie Nicks

FOCUS: ROCK’N’SOUL • SPECIAL PREMIERE Decadent rock star, ’70s survivor, gypsy songbird, cape-clad dervish, white-winged dove—the inimitable Stevie Nicks has entranced millions of fans worldwide with her poetic lyrics, sultry singing and featherand-lace style. Having remained a powerful pop force for more than four decades, in 2010 Nicks embarked on the recording of a new solo album, In Your Dreams, produced by former Eurythmics mastermind Dave Stewart. With cameras in tow, documentarian Stewart and diva Nicks set up shop in her home studio and reveal their collaborative creative process, as snippets of words and music undergo inspired tinkering and emerge as fully fledged gems. Throughout, Nicks shares intimate memories of childhood and her high-flying days with Fleetwood Mac, reflects on Hurricane Katrina in a particularly moving song and insists on just the right guitar solo even as Stewart and album co-producer Glen Ballard challenge her choices. Shifting dynamically among video formats, painstaking recording sessions and revealing interviews, this magic-tinged musical journey is a loving and tuneful portrait of the eternally bewitching Gold Dust Woman.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Sunday, September 16, 2011, at 10:00 am.
