Going tonight to see Stevie in concert and very excited. I last saw her in September opening for Billy Joel in an outdoor venue and her voice was the best I have heard this entire century. Looking forward to her 13 minute stories because she is so much fun to listen to and very funny with her comments. Hoping vocally she tops the September performance. This show is indoors inside a casino. I am not a gambler.

I hope you had a great time! Jealous here, I'll see her again if she comes to Australia this tour. Hope she hit some high notes for you.

It was another great show on Sunday night. I went with three other people and also met up with some friends at the box office before the show. Stevie sounds really good. No amount of cell phone footage can relate to us how good she sounds on this tour. And she is full of energy and gusto. I'm one of those fans who love her stories and if she ever wants to ditch the music and just spend 2 hours talking, I'm game. All my life I have been irritated with hearing the same song set in basically the same order until recently when I finally admitted to myself that when I go to see any other artist perform I only want to hear their hits. With that in mind I realized that Stevie delivers the majority of the hits of which the public knows and on this tour you can hear how much she really loves her own songs because there is so much life in them still. So I really enjoyed myself. The highlight of the show was the Gypsy intro which I posted for you that I found on youtube and Gold Dust Woman. In GDW there were two times where the volume was cranked up higher and I loved that. At 76 years old she continues to prove she is in a rock band because they play loudly and I love that she sings everything live. There are no backing tracks that I am aware of. I would say the show I saw last September was better than this night and I wonder if that was because she was using Billy Joel's sound system. Some of the mixes at this show did have spots where her voice sounded muffled. Because I know all the words to every song I was ok but I wondered about the people who didn't. But I have always loved Stevie Nicks so I left very satisfied. The only complaint I have is that I am fairly short so even with great seats(14th row center) I had to struggle to see through most of the show, because everyone else is so tall. I so wish floor seating could be like a movie theatre with each row being one foot lower than the row behind it. I literally have to stand up for the whole show in order to see.

Glad you enjoyed! Did everyone in the arena stand for the show?
Did she sing Fall From Grace, I Sing For the Things, Free Fallin, and Rock and Roll? I bet she's still not playing Sara. Marilyn said Stevie didn't want to play it anymore but I hope it will come back.

Glad you had a great time. Is this the latest Gypsy story?
Now she says she misses being a cleaning lady? I thought she hated it

She did hate being a cleaning lady. What she missed was the early days of struggling to become famous. Most likely she missed the simplicity of not being famous but they were probably just feelings she had here and there. Clearly she loves her fame and money.

Correct order, minus Enchanted. But with her stories the show ran a full two hours and five minutes.

Wow! Enchanted has been a live favorite of Stevie's for years! It seems to be like you said in your review: Stevie is making her setlist for those who aren't interested in her extensive catalogue, as in songs they don't know.

Well yes and no because when you get right down to it, the casual fan does not know Outside the Rain, Bella Donna, Wild Heart & Soldier's Angel. And I'd venture to guess the current generation of young girls I saw in the thousands at that concert probably never heard If Anyone Falls also because really, how often does that song get played on the radio these days?

I hear If Anyone Falls on Sirius 80s on 8 all the time. But on regular radio, I donít hear Stevie solo songs beyond Edge and Stop Draggin My Heart Around.

Outside The Rain and Bella Donna were on a #1 multiplatinum selling album and Iíd gather even her younger fans would likely own that or stream it more than her other albums. Wild Heart is always on Andyís Kiki Lounge station, thereís the viral video of her singing Wild Heart for the cover shoot, and recently a video of her singing it backstage with Harry Stylesí band.
The way Soldierís Angel is performed is without presumption because Stevie sets it up with the story as if the audience member has never heard it before and with the video accompaniment they love the song like itís one of her best.
What else is there: Leather and Lace, Gold Dust Woman, Dreams, Landslide, Stand Back, Gypsy, Edge of Seventeen, and the cover of a huge hit For What Itís Worth. Iíd still say itís a setlist for those who want to hear what they know. But that doesnít mean it wasnít a fantastic performance and concert!
