and I would love a fresh new set ,song we haven't heard in a theater setting would have been amazing just her no opening act .... and an acoustic set too

Ticket prices are high for most artists. I don't see them overly inflated for Stevie. Why I hesitate to see another Stevie concert is her set list. I defended her for years on her ritual repetitive and short sets. She has tremendous material that she never does.
Paul McCartney is much older than her and plays guitar and has twice the set list as Stevie.

I would kill to see or pay $500 for last row:

I cant wait - full rock version opener
Sable on Blonde - its not dreams but better
Crying in the night - where it all started
Stop Draggin My Heart Around - biggest solo single and first solo single
All the beautiful worlds - 24k Gold promotion
Bella Donna - nuff said
Nothing ever changes - get on your feet
Sleeping Angel
Long Way to Go - it was practiced to be live in 1994
Stand Back - not for me but for the casual fan
How Still My Love
Blue Lamp
Gold and Braid
Violet and Blue
Listen to the Rain - Street Angel greatness
Love is
Rhiannon - for the casual fan
Change of Heart (Tom Petty cover) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0Zxs5TspQA
Edge of 17
Encores:
Rooms on Fire
Beauty and the Beast
Leather and Lace
Has anyone ever written anything for you

Stevie loooooooves playing arenas. She's bragged about being in one of the few bands that still plays arenas. Didn't Lindsey even crack a joke that every night she tells the stories about opening for Joplin etc that the number of people in the crowd gets larger every night? 15k,25k, 50k. Let's face it, it's all about her ego.

I saw her in 2005 at Blossom music center and even then she couldn't fill out the pavilion. There were a few people in the lawn.

What nobody probably wants to tell her and probably hasn't so far - she can't play arenas unless she pairs up with another act at this point. Most likely that's why she did the Rod Stewart tour etc. She could do the theatre circuit no problem, but the money wouldn't be nearly as good.

I love her, but her attitude is so much different than it was between 1997-2001. That modest, down to earth, graciousness just hasn't been there in the same capacity in a long time, I miss that more than anything.

In my opinion, this BS about really enjoying being part of the Fleetwood Mac team is crap. Every time she is on the team all she can do is talk about getting off the team ASAP. If she really enjoyed being on the team, you might make sure that your Rolling Stone cover story didn't crap all over the band while still mid tour.

Me too! I still had hopes for a new release of 24 KG including more songs but I don't think it's gonna happen.

Hi. Thanks for the suggestion but that is still quite a trip. I couldn't trust the weather. I would love to go Nashville during the summer or spring and visit the Opry. I'm upset with Stevie. She needs to schedule date in Columbus Ohio. Hell, Chrissie is from Ohio.

More dates might be added later. They usually are.

Wow, Sands Bethlehem is sold out before the public onsale.... smaller venue compared to the others, but this is surprising given the prices!

Yeah - WTF - Mohegan has no tickets available @ 10am either. I never have luck with this Mohegan Sun arena. All the tickets are set aside for high rollers - I'm convinced.

I'm actually upset because I was given 2 ticket vouchers for General Admission seating at an event and had them set aside just in case Stevie went on tour, but since she's doing arenas, most of them don't do General Admission seating and the closest to me is Michigan and Auburn Hills doesn't have GA and Grand Rapids GA says no tickets available. Oh well, I would be taking a huge gamble on planning to drive from Ohio to Michigan in late November anyway.

I'm a bit shocked that I couldn't pull up a single ticket for Bethlehem. I can't remember the last time that happened for a show I was interested in.

I wonder if the TM site crashed or it got loaded down with buyers.I had that happen in the past.I'll be surprised if the presales cleaned all of them out.I remember at one Stevie show which was at The Turningstone casino in upstate New York when TM or their online tix site was doing the same thing as nothing coming up as the sales start .After dealing with that BS.What I did was call the Turningstone Box office up on the phone and end up getting front row seats at regular price.The lady said that their policy is to hold seats for walk in's and telephone orders.I almost died getting those seats.At another time I had the same issues with TM website with crap seats so I took off a half day from work and drove to Foxwoods Casino box office and see if I can get good tickets.No freaking luck there as they were offering the same crap seats.What a waste of trip and a half vacation day from work.All venues are different so be careful.

BTW I thought the venues y suppose to hold tix for the general sale and the box office and local phone orders..
