Re-cut of Stevie's interview with Art Nation

Re-cut of Stevie's interview with Art Nation.  I think this is what aired on ABC1 TV in Australia on Sunday.  Its shorter then the extended video.  Has most of the same footage, but there is additional footage in this that isn't on the extended version.

The Extended interview which is about 20 minutes long is here

Chart Update: Fleetwood Mac | Stevie Nicks | Lindsey Buckingham - Australia, USA

Fleetwood Mac continue to dominate on the Australian Album Charts with the largest impact shown on the Catalogue Charts.  The Very Best Of 2 CD set remains at # 1 this week, with Stevie's Crystal Visions Best Of CD moving up a notch to the top 5.  Rumours makes the largest move - back into the Top 10 at # 9.  Fleetwood Mac's Greatest Hits slides two places to # 20.  On the Top 100 Albums Chart albums are pretty much holding except for Stevie's In Your Dreams dropping 11 places to # 100.

Fleetwood Mac's The Dance DVD re-enters the Top 40 DVD Chart at # 37.

Stevie decked out in an all red in a never before seen outfit - and looking pretty great!  The colour is a nice change from the all black.  Photos aren't great, but from what I can see, the new 2 piece outfit is similarly styled like a few of the new recent pieces we've seen her wearing on tour... 

Last night in Sydney, Australia, at the 25th ARIA Awards Show, Stevie Nicks with Nine’s Entertainment Editor Richard Wilkins presented the best contemporary album award to Billy Thorpe's final masterpiece "Tangier" an album coincidentally that Mick Fleetwood played drums on.

Collecting the ARIA AWARD on the night were Billy's wife, Lynn, and daughters Lauren and Rusty.

Review: Stevie Nicks Live in Perth

Stevie Nicks back to her magnificent best in Perth

Given her troubled past and well documented struggles with drugs and alcohol Stevie Nicks had no right to look and sound as good as she did last night.

She was here on the Perth leg of the Australian tour in support of her latest, Dave Stewart-produced, album In Your Dreams. In front a dream band led by legendary guitarist Waddy Wachtel, the 63-year-old’s voice commanded attention and affection as it rang out in the cool night air.

Towards the end of the two-hour set as the band cranked out chorus after chorus of Edge Of Seventeen, Nicks walked across the front of the stage – with help from her security who made sure the tiny-framed songstress did not get pulled in – touching the fans within reach. Those further back were just as surely touched by an artist who delivered a memorable and heart warming performance.

Also reviewed by The Mouth - Adelaide here

"Stevie Nicks proves she still has what it takes vocally to captivate & entertain a 6,000 strong audience for two hours."

"Dave Stewart's rendition of Tom Pett's "Don't Come Around Here No More was a highlight, a song which was actually co-written by Petty and himself, a revelation which reaffirmed we were in the esteemed presence of a truly talented artist."

"Brian McFadden delivers an impressive set to an initially reserved, but eventually well received audience."

Review: Stevie Nicks Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne by Everguide

Stevie Nicks 'In Your Dreams' Tour, Myer Music Bowl, Nov 19

Back in the coke-hazy days (daze) of Fleetwood Mac’s prime, Stevie Nicks was spinning around long before our Kylie. Dressed in trademark long, flowing skirts and draped shawls, there were few things more captivating than Nicks’ whirling dervish routine.

At age 63, we can hardly blame Nicks for being less nimble on her feet these days, but the closest approximation to a twirl on Saturday night was more of a stop-start rotating shuffle that might’ve been achieved faster with the help of a walker. 

Ironically, it was this stiff movement that perhaps best encapsulated what was great about the show. Nicks is no longer capable of what she once was, twirls and high notes included. But goshdarnit, she’s going to try her damndest to hit them anyway, and for this, and for all the magic she has gifted us with in years past, fans will remain loyal to this long-haired battleaxe til the bitter end. 

Opening with the synthy, Prince-y 'Stand Back' seemed a case of peaking way too early. But Nicks quickly warned the crowd that this would not be a greatest hits set. If the name of the tour didn’t give it away already, she was here to promote her new album, In Your Dreams, released earlier this year.

It’s a surprisingly good album too, her best solo effort in years, and most were only too happy to indulge her as she showcased some of her favourite tracks from the record (though, to her credit, and in spite of her disclaimer, a healthy dose of her hits were given almost equal airing).

PHOTOS | VIDEO: Stevie Nicks | Dave Stewart | Brian McFadden - Melbourne Night 1

Bit of a wrap-up on the first Melbourne, Australia show from Saturday Night at Sidney Meyer Music Bowl... No official reviews yet, I expect they will come over the course of the next few days after the second Melbourne show at Mornington Racecourse, which is in progress as I write this.  There was a lot of positive reaction on the show from fans who attended - all happening during and after the show via facebook and twitter... Some really cool photos were posted (see below).  The first two photos below are by: @steven2082 on twitter.  Stevie looks incredible!

Huge audience on opening night in Melbourne... Great to see!!  From everything I've seen and read, the rain that had been pouring down all day somewhat eased off during the concert so the many that had lawn seats outside the covered seating didn't get completely swamped... 

Stevie's setlist appears to have stayed intact from her shows in the US.  No additions or changes from the latter October shows. She's playing 6 new songs from In Your Dreams... Stevie did her traditional Edge Walk during Edge of Seventeen... So fans at future shows in the front... position yourselves... She's coming your way!  Surprised there were no jumbo screens on either side of the stage.  Maybe the venue couldn't handle it.

Brian McFadden opened the show with Dave Stewart following in an amazing top hat!  Dave also joined Stevie on stage during her set for likely most if not all the 6 new songs being played (looking for confirmation on what songs Dave played on).  Whether it was because of the rainy weather, Stevie skipped the dresses tonight and stuck with an outfit similar to what she wore during her spring Rod Stewart tour.. Doesn't look like she broke out the white outfit to end the show with Edge of Seventeen. 

Once reviews for the show are published, you'll see them here.

The first 5 photos are by Charles Newbury - More photos by this photographer are on the way as he's working both shows.

Stevie Nicks Heads Down Under, Reveals Why Vegas Isn't an Option for Her

This weekend, Stevie Nicks continues her lengthy tour in support of her current album In Your Dreams with a string of dates in Australia.  The dates kick off Saturday in Melbourne, and she'll wrap things up December 10 in Tasmania.  For this round of dates, Dave Stewart of Eurythmics, who co-produced In Your Dreams, will be joining Stevie, and she says she's had so much fun working with him that she'd love him to be involved in the next Fleetwood Mac album as well.

"[Dave's] one of those people that walks in the room and he doesn't even have to say anything and you start laughing," Stevie tells ABC News Radio.  "He's just instantly funny.   And, he gets up everyday and he looks at the world through the eyes of a child.  And, it rubs off on you and you feel like a child.  And, he has big dreams and he shoots for the start to become like that when you're around him, and that's where I want to be."

Someplace Stevie doesn't want to be, however, is in Las Vegas, doing a permanent residency, like Elton John, Celine Dion or her pal Rod Stewart, with whom she toured with earlier this year.  Though she's now in her sixties, Stevie isn't interested in giving up her nomadic existence, staying in one place and letting the fans come to her.  "I could never do that.  Never.  I could never stay in one place like that," she tells ABC News Radio.  "I think that for somebody like Rod Stewart, who has eight children and a brand new baby I think that this is fantastic.  Celine Dion, you know, she wanted to raise her babies and not be traveling all over the world." 

Stevie notes that her situation is vastly different from that of Rod, Celine or even Elton -- she's not married and she's not a parent.  "I don't have that.  I have a dog," she notes.  "So I would never be able to stay in the one place and be in the same dressing room every night and have the same audience.  I couldn't do it."

STEVIE NICKS INTERVIEW: No Fleetwood Mac in 2012... She's So Not Done!

Hot Ticket
Sydney Moring Herald

She's worked and played hard in her 63 years but Stevie Nicks isn't done yet.

Stevie Nicks does not like other people speaking on her behalf. So, sitting in a big, plush white reading chair in her cavernous suite at the Radisson Hotel in Sydney's central business district, she swiftly cuts down some of the rumours that have recently sprouted from the mouths of strangers and loved ones.

That one about Lindsay Lohan planning to play the Fleetwood Mac frontwoman in a biopic? Not even close; Nicks says if anyone's going to do it, it will be Reese Witherspoon, who is a friend. ''She's very down to earth,'' Nicks says while sipping on a large, shapely glass of iced tea. ''If we don't do it soon, though, she's going to be too old.''

And what of the recent claim, by her ex and fellow Fleetwood Mac member, Lindsey Buckingham, that the band will either tour or release another album next year?

Nicks, who is here touring to support In Your Dreams (her first solo album in a decade), responds firmly, like a school-marm chastising her charges for talking in class.

''There isn't going to be anything of Fleetwood Mac next year,'' she says. ''I'm taking next year [to support this record] and it's not going to be done until I say it's done.''

What would Nicks be without her steely determination? It's what helped the writer of such classics as Rhiannon, Dreams and Landslide weather an eight-year addiction to Klonopin, a drug that itself was meant to wean her off cocaine but instead chucked nearly a decade of her life into confusion.

It also inspired her new song, For What It's Worth, which is about what happened after Nicks defied her rehab doctors in 1995.

''I had been in rehab for the Klonopin and I'm completely sober and everything is different,'' Nicks says. ''[The doctors] say, 'Don't do anything big … Give yourself a year.'''

Nicks's response? To go on tour with Fleetwood Mac and have a ''forbidden romance'' with a man who ''saved her life'' by supporting her in this endeavour. Who was he? ''I'm not going to say,'' Nicks says.

Of her future plans, though, the 63-year-old will say this: ''I'm so not done.''
