To Do Today: Stevie Nicks, Swet Shop Boys, and The Living End
Classic rock and two very different hip-hop acts fill the stages tonight.

There is no “I” in team, especially if that team is Fleetwood Mac. That’s what Stevie Nicks told the New York Times when she announced that she’d be heading out on a solo tour this year. And while Fleetwood Mac is certainly a good team to be on, when you’re Stevie Nicks, sometimes you just have to go your own way. “In my band, there is no arguing,” she said. “I am the boss. My solo career is probably the reason Fleetwood Mac is still together in 2016, because I was always happy to leave Fleetwood Mac, and I was always happy to come back, too.
And while I love Fleetwood Mac with all my heart, I am happy that Stevie is back on the solo circuit. Over the course of eight studio albums, Nicks has proved that she’s not just a vital voice in Fleetwood Mac, but an incredible songwriter on her own. With cuts like “Edge of Seventeen,” “King of Woman,” and “Wild Heart,”—not to mention her glorious collaborations with Don Henley and Tom Petty on “Leather & Lace” and “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” respectively—she’s one of our country’s greatest songwriters. So it’s a blessing that she’s dusting off deep cuts from her catalogue to take on the road, and it’s even more of a blessing that she’s bringing The Pretenders along to open. Stevie Nicks performs with The Pretenders at 7 p.m. at Verizon Center, 601 F St. NW. $49–$150. (202) 628-3200. (Matt Cohen) >>>
