The Enchanted Box set and tour NEVER would of happened without that tour happening first.

It would be interesting to think about where her career would be now if the 1997 reunion hadn't happened.
Considering Smashing Pumpkins had a minor alternative hit with “Landslide” in 1994 and Hole had a hit with “Gold Dust Woman” in 1996, all Stevie really needed was to quit smoking, drop some weight, get a makeover, and start working with younger, relevant musicians like Dave Grohl. She could still have assumed the godmotherly rock survivor with the scars to prove it persona that she took on in 1997. Maybe have a Stevie Nicks comeback special on MTV and Clear Channel. I doubt it would have had the same impact, but she could have been brought back to viability without Fleetwood Mac.
