NEW and Noteworthy! Lindsey Buckingham at Buffalo Chip + Stevie with Maroon 5

Today we learned that Stevie Nicks will be joining Adam Levine and his Maroon 5 co-horts at the Hollywood Bowl tonight as a Special Guest... What they'll perform?  Who knows!... Who cares!  It's exciting, and who ever is going will be receiving a lovely treat!

Also learned today that Reverbnation and Eventful are both reporting that Lindsey Buckingham will be appearing at Buffalo Chip in Sturgis, SD on August 11th with Jeff Bridges, John Fogerty and Stevie Nicks as part of the All Star Event being assembled for The American Thunder Music Festival a benefit for The Bob Woodruff Foundation.  The music festival is in celebration of the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and their families. Reprise Records (Stevie's label) confirmed Stevie's appearance last week via press release stating that Stevie would be performing 'Soldiers Angel', a new track from In Your Dreams, a song that is also a collaboration with Lindsey Buckingham.  It makes complete sense that she'd play the song during the show, but at first I thought how would she do it without Buckingham?  Now with these two sites reporting his attendance, it's all falling into place.  Hope they haven't jumped the gun!  Contact music also reported that Jeff and Stevie would be performing together, but that can be taken both way... So we'll see

Thanks for the info Elle!

Plus... Dossier Journal will have an interview with Stevie Nicks by T. Cole Rachel in their next issue...

Stevie Nicks to Join Jeff Bridges and John Fogerty at American Thunder Music Festival at Legendary Sturgis, Buffalo Chip August 11, 2011

All-Star Concert Will Benefit the Bob Woodruff Foundation, in Celebration of the Men and Women of the United States Military and Their Families

STURGIS, SD--(Marketwire - Jul 19, 2011) - The first annual American Thunder Music Festival has added Stevie Nicks to the lineup that already includes John Fogerty. The all-star concert is scheduled to take place on Thursday, August 11th, at the Legendary Buffalo Chip.

"I am honored to join Jeff Bridges for this show in support of the Bob Woodruff Foundation. I feel proud to show my love for returning vets and their families and to honor their bravery," commented Nicks -- a longtime supporter of returning vets. Nicks' new CD, "In Your Dreams," includes the poignant, Nicks penned original song "Soldiers Angel" which she was inspired to write following her many visits to Walter Reed Hospital and Bethesda Medical Center. Nicks will be performing the song at the Festival and it is sure to be one of many highlights of this historic show.

"Stevie's support for the men and women who serve is almost as legendary as her voice," said Bridges. "Her songs and distinctive voice have become part of the very fabric of America."

"With so many service men and women returning from the battle field, it's critical that we honor their service by helping them return to their local communities," said Bob Woodruff, ABC News Anchor, and Co-Founder of the Bob Woodruff Foundation. "Because there are people like Jeff Bridges, John Fogerty and Stevie Nicks, who lend their distinctive voices to this cause, I have no doubt our fellow Americans will help us say 'thank you' to those who serve."

"Stevie Nicks' song 'Soldiers Angel' is the most beautiful song I've ever heard about wounded warriors and those who comfort them," said David Clark, founder of American Thunder. "We're all honored to have her participate."

Funds raised at American Thunder will benefit the Bob Woodruff Foundation that invests in programs that connect troops to the services they need, including physical rehabilitation and counseling, education, employment and financial assistance, as well as help with larger issues like homelessness and suicide.
