Great review. I was 6 rows back on the floor in section 2 and I didn't even notice Chrissy breaking a guitar string. LOL I agree with everything you said.

I brought some friends with me and they aren't as big of fans as I am and a few liked the talking but most didn't. She needs to shorten up the stories a bit. She said she was nervous because of the filming, but once that settled down she did a great show.

I also agree about Edge of Seventeen. My niece was looking forward to that song and she didn't mention the verse cut, but I noticed it and I think it's a sin. LOL

Yeah I was 7th row floor 1 and and a guy over from me was pissed he yelled shut the f up and sing. He was a jerk! The 4 people next to me left they had it with the talking. I like hearing the stories but she really needs to shorten it up, it totally interrupted the flow of the show. I thought she sounded fantastic though!

Concert review: Stevie Nicks, Pretenders set the gold standard in Pittsburgh


Wasn't Stevie Nicks one of the quiet ones in Fleetwood Mac?

She isn't now. All that stage banter saved up over the decades is spilling out on the 24 Karat Gold Tour, where she talks for 24 minutes between songs.

Ok, not really. I kid the diva (at my own peril!). It’s more like four minutes, and despite her bewitching image, she's not a diva at all, in the negative sense. We hesitate to apply the term “down to earth” to Stevie Nicks, because she seems to be hovering above it, but she's actually very sweet (I spoke with her on the phone years ago and she’s the kind of person who asks YOU questions about yourself).

This tour, which began in October and hit the PPG Paints Arena Friday on its second leg, is very much about her and how she came to be a star in and out of Fleetwood Mac. It's a “storytellers” tour without using that word, and on Friday night it was being filmed for posterity, giving it the feel of a live documentary in the making.

The odd thing about that is that usually people do the storyteller thing in an intimate theater setting, not a packed arena, here on a Girls’ Night Out Friday.

For starters, she brought along an old friend in Chrissie Hynde, the tough rocker from Akron, Ohio, fronting the latest version of the Pretenders, a band that emerged in the punk era of the late ‘70s as a counter-punch to the FM-friendly likes of Fleetwood Mac.

Clearly, the two Rock and Roll Hall of Famers love each other now, and Hynde even said “I love you, Stevie” after dedicating a beautiful version of the feminist ballad “Hymn to Her” to the headliner, along with all the rest of the songs in the set. The musical bond would jell even more later.

This concert was well placed on the calendar because over the last week Hynde has been canceling shows with a respiratory ailment, but in Pittsburgh (which she praised as a city that’s held on to its past) she seemed to be feeling no ill effects. The 65-year-old’s voice is still a wonder to behold — rich, sexy, forceful — and she cut a sharp figure in tight pants, boots and a sleeveless Recycled Records T-shirt. For this occasion, she settled on the nicer, mid-tempo Pretenders songs like “Back on the Chain Gang,” “Talk of the Town” and “Message of Love,” rather than such punk ragers as “Precious” and “The Wait.”

She actually seemed to care if Stevie’s fans liked her, and most did, but far too many were flooding in the aisles, just getting to their seats or getting up for beers, and with no real urgency.

Backed by one original Pretender in drummer Martin Chambers (Brits Pete Farndon and James Honeyman-Scott tragically died young) they added a pair of songs from new album “Alone” (including the bluesy, fuzzed-out title track) and finished with a solid run of “Stop Your Sobbing,” “My City Was Gone,” “Middle of the Road” and a typically sassy “Brass in Pocket.” Along the way, James Walbourne, of Pernice Brothers and Son Volt fame, provided the best guitar heroics of the whole night.

Stevie did not follow that by strutting out with one of her radio warhorses. She arrived in black lacy dress, cape and fingerless gloves, offset by her golden hair, on a gorgeously illuminated stage with deep cut “Gold and Braid,” setting the tone for a concert culled from what she described as the “dark Gothic trunk of lost songs.”

After following that with ‘80s synth-rocker “If Anyone Falls,” she said, “This is not the same Stevie Nicks show you’ve seen a million times, because I’m not the same Stevie Nicks you've seen a million times.”

In the good ways she is, though, because she is remarkably well preserved at 68, including that beguiling voice that can be at once lovely and dissonant.

The storyline centered on balancing her solo career with her day job in Fleetwood Mac. Being one of three singer-songwriters in that superstar band (with former flame Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie), there was, and is, the Beatles-like dilemma of getting your songs on the album.

When she decided in late 1980 to go solo with “Bella Donna,” “I wasn’t going to be like Beyoncé and break up my band,” she said, wisely appending that statement with praise and respect for the Queen. “I got Fleetwood Mac in a room and said, ‘Fleetwood Mac, I want to do a solo album, but it won't hurt us at all. It will only keep us in the spotlight while you're on vacation.’ ”

Providing some of the spark for that was Tom Petty handing her the smash single “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” a contender for best rock duet of all time, and on the PPG stage, her sidekick guitarist Waddy Wachtel had to be pinching himself to be in a threesome with Stevie and Chrissie, singing, “I know you BOTH wanna be your own girl.” It was one of those thrilling concert moments you can talk about for years, punctuated with a high-five photo op at the end.

Nicks continued with trunk songs from 2014’s “24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault,” like the bright Petty-and-the-Heartbreakers-assisted rocker “Starshine” and the seductive “Belle Fleur,” interspersed with hits like “Gypsy,” ending with one of her signature spins that drive fans wild.

With each song came a long story, about recording with Fleetwood Mac in an old French castle with no ice, or calling Prince for help on “Stand Back,” a song inspired by hearing “Little Red Corvette.” It took an hour to get his number and, because he was in LA not Minneapolis, it took less than that for His Purple Majesty to show up at the studio and add keys and guitar to the future hit.

She climaxed the 2 1/2-hour set with an enchanting “Gold Dust Woman,” complete with a frantic dance in the full-moon backdrop, and an electrifying “Edge of Seventeen,” with the guitars rumbling like propellers and Nicks spreading her vintage black cape like a nightbird.

She encored with the double Mac pleasure of a “Rhiannon” that rocked and a “Landslide” that displayed her tender touch with a ballad. For the purposes of the film, they returned to recut “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” with just Stevie and Waddy.

The 24 Karat format, and her occasional exits from the stage, surely interrupted the flow of the music (and there are bound to be complaints), but Stevie Nicks is still the gold standard, and her faithful fans got to know her a little better on Friday night.

In the end, she thanked them profusely for sitting through the stories and trunk songs, like the diva she is not.

Final thoughts.
I think this is the best Stevie solo tour since Enchanted. Her heart is really into this tour and the set list is very good. If you are on the fence about going, I would highly suggest you go.
Interesting that the Pittsburgh show sold out. That may be a first for her. She almost sold out in 1986 and 1989. I have heard some of the song stories many times. But the newer songs I was not overly familiar with the stories so I enjoyed them. My sister is a very casual fan but she enjoyed them too.
I personally think Prince was a jerk for the way he treated people and I am over Stevie's Prince stories. But it was touching when she said that she was someone that many were concerned enough to watch over her for being so out of control. She said he cared enough to watch over her.

I remember reading in an interview with actress Zooey Deschanel that for the episode of New Girl in which Prince guest starred and did her a make-over he actually wanted her to look like Stevie and personally choosed her outfit. I think he truly cared for Stevie after all.

STEVIE NICKS STILL ROCKS!
March 31, 2017

Pittsburgh, PA

STEVE NICKS’ 24 KARAT GOLD TOUR


I’M GOING TO GUSH ABOUT STEVIE’S CONCERT.

I grew up to the music of Stevie Nicks. One of my personal goals is to see icons in concert. After we lost so many performers in 2016, I reaffirmed this goal. (Luckily I had seen Bowie and Prince years ago). Stevie’s 24 Karat Gold Tour fulfilled all my ideas of what it would be. Not only did she perform many of her hits, but she brought out what she called songs from her “dark Gothic trunk of lost songs.” In between songs she shared with us about her time with Lindsey Buckingham before Fleetwood Mac, how-when-why she wrote certain songs, and why she hasn’t performed certain songs ever and why she is performing them now.

My friends and I felt like we were sitting at a coffee shop hearing the details of a long lost Aunt’s life. Even though we were in a huge area and sitting fairly far away, she was so sweet and open and a little nervous at times, it felt intimate. She was just as magnificent as you would want her to be, dressed like a Gothic Enchantress, changing capes and scarves frequently. Her voice was melodic and husky. She did her signature spin a few times to uproarious applause.

Chrissy Hynde and The Pretenders opened the show. Chrissy sounded great. She came out and sang with Stevie on “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.” Very cool. It’s worth noting that they started close to the time on the ticket which is fairly unusual. Most concerts I’ve been to in the last few years start at least 30 mins after ticket time and the headliner is on a good 45-60 mins after the opener. So if you go to this tour and the tickets says 7pm, get there well before 7pm so as not to miss anything.

A plea to the drunks: Some people were drunk and obnoxious (as people often are at concerts) and screamed and yelled for Stevie to “sing” while she was talking. It was horribly annoying and rude. If you go to a concert, please don’t be obnoxious. If you don’t like the performance you can storm out and demand a refund or write a terrible review, but please don’t ruin it for the rest of the audience.

I’m including a few videos I took from far away with my crappy phone. The picture isn’t great, but you can hear how wonderful she sounds. Enjoy.

If you’d like to watch these and a video of Moonlight on YouTube, go to my channel GeeksBurgh.

Thanks to Stevie and her band and the whole team for giving us a memorable performance.

Thanks for reading.

Stevie Nicks' '24 Karat Gold' shines in Pittsburgh

After a run of tour dates last fall, iconic solo artist and Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks hasn't run out of songs to pull out of her "Gothic trunk," which she brought to Pittsburgh's PPG Paints Arena last Friday as her tour in support of 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault continues.

Following opener The Pretenders, Nicks began with "Gold and Braid," the opener to a two-hour set of mostly lesser-known songs that spanned her career--from the early days of Buckingham Nicks to now--and included Nicks' personal stories behind them, such as "New Orleans" written after Hurricane Katrina and the Twilight-inspired "Moonlight." Although 24 Karat Gold is an ideal tour for Nicks fans who want to hear more than top-charting singles, it's not devoid of those--Pretenders frontwoman Chrissie Hynde joined Nicks for a rendition of "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around," originally performed with Tom Petty, and Nicks used the powerhouse "Edge of Seventeen" to pay tribute to Prince.

Despite being a solo tour, Nicks still made room in the setlist for Fleetwood Mac hits like "Gypsy" and crowd favorite "Gold Dust Woman," performed with a gold shawl and Nicks' well-known erratic dancing, and an encore of "Rhiannon" and beloved "Landslide."

Nicks' fans are sure to enjoy spending an evening with the singer on her 24 Karat Gold Tour, with her performance, charming personality, and, of course, that distinct voice.
