Tributes are maybe once, maybe twice.
They are not meant to be road shows where the tribute becomes about you and what you put on and say almost like one of the songs in the set list.
The acts that do tributes when a singer/musician dies is usually one night someone plays one or a few of their songs the day of or after their death. It takes away from a tribute when its done 40 times in a row.
Her tribute to Prince got old really quick especially with the photoshopped photos of them "together" behind her on stage as produced number. It was over one year since Prince's death and she was still on tour doing a big production of his passing. IMHO that's weird and trivializes the tribute. Its not about them anymore but about YOU and YOUR life. Tom Petty died in 2017. Stevie made a tribute to Tom in the Mac show a year after his passing. It was not about Tom but about how much she misses Tom which is not really about Tom when you think about it.

When I saw Paul McCartney, he opened with “A Hard Day’s Night” (originally a John lead) and played “Something “ which I think has been in his set since George Harrison died.

That's class. Didn't Chris even do a Danny Kirwin song on the last tour? I am not saying playing a song of someone else to acknowledge them is wrong. Paul McCartney did not photo shop photos, roll down a big screen and talk about him endlessly night after night.
I hope I was not saying the music is the same thing as a Stevie tributes.

When I saw The Byrds (McGuinn & Hillman with Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives as their backing band), their entire encore set was about Tom Petty (So You Want To Be A Rock And Roll Star, American Girl, Wildflowers, and Runnin’ Down A Dream), with lots of stories about Tom. Marty even played a song from his current album at the time that was produced by Mike Campbell. Granted, it was a year and a day after Tom died. But, definitely a bigger tribute than anything Fleetwood Mac did.

When I saw ELO, with Dhani Harrison opening, Dhani joined them for “Handle With Care,” complete with a Wilbury’s video tribute during the second verse. The crowd went nuts in Columbus when George, Roy, and Tom were on the screen.

I guess my point is that it was pretty commonplace and not exclusive to Stevie.

There's a big difference between a year and a day and FIVE YEARS.

Stevie's revisionist 360 on her relationship with Prince is pretty over the top.

That's my beef with all of it. With Stevie these days how much is it really a sincere tribute vs another opportunity to make it all about her. It's pretty laughable to see the Prince "stories" grow extra legs within months of his passing. The fact that I only believe 45% of anything she says might have something to do with my stance.

Yeah, I was talking more about the “Free Fallin’” tribute which made its debut a year and a day after Tom died.

As for the Prince stuff, that was always a lot of whatever.
