I was there and she was spectacular! It was my third and final show for this tour and she saved the best for my last. It was a very magical show, and to hear "New Orleans" in New Orleans is something that I will never forget. I live in Tennessee, but on that night, during that song and in that building, we were ALL from New Orleans. Thanks Stevie! That's why I love you so!

I am a native New Orleanian and it was a wonderful moment to hear Stevie sing New Orleans in New Orleans...I lost alot in the storm including everything I owned, (extensive Stevie/Mac collection of photos/promo posters/ and vinyl/cds, etc. My father died in the aftermath...there were many wet eyes around me and it was wierd how the arena was silent as she began singing....

also...I am reading New Orleans was ANOTHER sellout crowd on this highly successful tour!!

OPENING THE BOX, STEVIE NICKS AT THE SMOOTHIE KING CENTER


he cost of concert tickets across the US have been steadily increasing, and with that comes the revitalization of the whole stadium tour. The sustainability comes almost entirely from the artist, and most importantly, the willingness of their fans to pay. The silver lining from this trend is that the concerts themselves have gotten way more visually exciting. Stevie Nicks’ Smoothie King Arena show on Wednesday, March 15 was by all means a carbon copy of those notions.

As I was leaving the show, I couldn’t shake the feeling of amazement the show had brought to me. For all intents and purposes, this tour is a passion project. Stevie wanted to create a set of material that was dear to her.

Much of that material she hadn’t played in a very long time or at all for that matter. With this notion in mind, it led to the perfect opportunity to let the audience know the history of many of the songs. This story telling gave me insight that a straight-up concert would never happen. In all actuality, she may have been able to play one or two more songs, and I would have loved to hear those.

The set was full of Fleetwood Mac tunes as well as her solo material. Chrissie Hynde from The Pretenders (who’s opening this tour) joined Mac on stage during “Stop Draggin' My Heart Around,” the first single Nicks ever had, written by Tom Petty. Some of my favorite stories revolved around her hit “Stand Back” which was inspired by Prince’s “Little Red Corvette.” She lamented on how ever since she recorded “God Dust Woman” and “Rhianna,” they’d never missed a set and over the years have evolved and taken on lives of their own. She talked about how she would write down ideas and complete songs, only to put them away in a box never to be seen again.

The moral of this tour is reconciliation with that box. One of those box songs Nicks wrote was in response to Katrina. “New Orleans” is a story that had to be told, but Nicks didn’t want to patronize the city, so she put the song away. This tour is the first time ever the song has seen the light of day. As she was telling the story of what perspective she needed to take, I couldn’t even imagine how nervous she must have been to play the song to its home crowd. She sang the song to a hushed crowd, and the images that accompanied the song were powerful and needed, no matter how much they stung the core.

The last two songs of the main set and the encore encapsulates Nick’s career. “Gold Dust Woman” and “Edge of Seventeen” rounded out the main set, followed by “Rihanna” and an engagingly charming version of “Landslide.” All in all, it was a fantastic evening and her stories were a great addition. You can see more pictures here.

Stevie Nicks, New Orleans and gratitude

When you've had a bad attitude for the past week and then the preacher says Jesus gave thanks at his last meal before he was killed, you would think you'd straighten up and fly right.

Yeah, about that...

Lately I've had a bad case of "My diamond shoes are too tight" — a saying that I stole from Chandler Bing of "Friends." I have a ridiculous amount to be grateful for, and still manage to complain when something slightly uncomfortable happens.

For instance, I recently went to New Orleans to see Stevie Nicks in concert. I was, to put it politely, out of sorts throughout much of the trip.

My back hurt (some of the time); parking was not ideal; the hotel had super loud construction going on (when we got there), the streetcars were confusing (the first day)... These are the things I focused on.

But seriously. Stevie Nicks. In New Orleans. If I'm being honest, I had a blast. I got to hang out with my friend Michelle, we split a delicious muffaletta — my first ever — at Cafe Maspero, and the people-watching at a Stevie Nicks show is the best around. I've never seen so many women in top hats.

The concert itself was great, of course. Stevie's band wasn't as good as Fleetwood Mac, but she more than commanded the stage. Especially for a 68-year-old.
