29. She's doing two shows.
Some with Don and others solo.

Stevie's band is fantastic.

Her back up singers are wonderful. Sharon has been with her since 1981 and Lori (now her sister-in-law) sang with her in Vegas for the first time in about 10 years.

7. When I say Stevie in '01, Don was there.
It was the last night of her 2001 tour. Very emotional night. That tour was very sucessful for her, but had many road blocks.

First Stevie had to postpone serveral shows (including the show I saw in LA) and then she was set to perform in New York on 9/12. So she was in NYC during the attacks.

I recall reading that she was unsure to go on with the tour and more dates were either cancelled or postponed. When I saw her on the last night of tour she talked about it. Which is something rare for Stevie to do at show. She noted that her father talked her into pushing on that she needed to do this more than ever now. She also noted that one of the first shows after 9/11 was in the DC area and they had a F-16 escort to land.

6. "Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You?" is
my absolute favorite Stevie Nicks song. I'd do just about anything to see/hear her perform it live. Sending you light, ronnykmarshall, for everything to work out so that you can get those tickets.

8. Thanks sweeties.
I love that song too. She closed with that song in 2001. It's always a tear jerker.

Sorry about our little tiff. Sometimes I'm a big ol' drama queen.

:loveya:

10. That song means a lot to me . . .
because during the first six months of our relationship, my SO made a handmade journal for me and the lyrics to that song were written on the first page. It's a longer story than that, about me leaving a 20 year career as a professional writer and starting a new life as an artist, but anyway, it's beautiful to me, and I hope you get to hear it live again for both of us.

(Did we have a little tiff? ;) No worries.)

12. There was a 20/20 interview
with Stevie in 2001 w/ Diane Sawyer and they played a clip of her singing that song. It showed people in the crowd crying and Diane remarked how Stevie's music really touches people.

Hell, I started sqwalling just seeing that. I was a wreak when I saw her live!!!

9. Ever see the SNL sketch?
http://snltranscripts.jt.org/98/98cfajita.phtml :)


Stevie Nicks: Hello, I'm Stevie Nicks. Do you like the music of my band, Fleetwood Mac? And do you like fajitas, flautas, casa dias, and other Tex-Mex specialties? Then come on down to my new restaurant in Sedona, Arizona - Stevie Nicks' Fajita Roundup. In the seventies, I dedicated myself to witchcraft, Lindsay Buckingham, and cocaine. But now I use that same energy and dedication to bring you an affordable dining experience you'll never forget.

< sings to the tune of "Rhiannon" >
"Chicken fajitas taste real fine,
wouldn't you love to eat them?
My chips and salsa are mighty fine,
no one round here can beat 'em."

In my restaurant, I'll be singing some of the classic songs that made me famous, while serving up some of the finest Tex-Mex food in the Southwest - like the house specialty, "Burrito Dream".

< sings to the tune of "Dreams" >
"Now, there you go again, you say you want burritos.
I'm sure that you can keep 'em down.
It's only a flour tortilla, used to wrap around your meat now.
Have you any beans you'd like to share with the loneliness?"

When Mick Fleetwood and I started performing back in 1974, we had a vision that one day our music would be heard around the world.. while people are eating Mexican food in a restaurant.

< sings to the tune of "The Chain" >
"Rack of beef to start on,
take your silver spoon full of beans and rice.."

So, the next time you're craving a little Stevie Nicks' music, or a vegatable burrito, don't forget there's a special place for people just like you.

< sings to the tune of "Landslide >
"You placed an order, I wrote it down.
Three enchiladas, the best in town.
Then I saw my reflection in a big pile of nachos.
The landslide brought in down."

Announcer: Stevie Nicks' Fajita Roundup. Off Interstate 17, just two hours north of Phoenix. Every Tuesday, burrito specials just $2.99.

15. Really? Well, I'm glad she took it in good humor.
She's a better woman than I would be about that sort of satire! I guess I like her even better now. :hug:

14. I promise you that I have a sense of humor . . .
Edited on Sat May-28-05 11:46 AM by Heidi
but I don't find much humor in criticism of Steve Nicks' weight too funny. Heck, she looks to me like an average American woman, and this thread's about her professional career, not her personal life (including eating habits), right? :hi:

(Edited for misplaced apostrophe.)

17. She's been real open about it.
She's fought off the drugs and performing is her life. I'm proud of her.

18. Whatta woman.
One of the coolest thing I ever read was an interview in which she described herself and Tom Petty as best friends. I love his music, and his way of thinking, too.

19. On "Trouble In Shangra La" ..
there's a song that talks about how Tom got her to get back to writing music. I think this was after she got clean and started to lose weight.

20. This was my fan review from 2001 on Stevie's website:
Ronny K. Marshall
The bruise on my left hand from clapping tells it all! I was pacing back and forth waiting for my partner get home from work. L.A. traffic was luckily on our side tonight for the drives home from work. I wish I could have said the same for the trip to Universal. Luckily, we got there in time to have some sushi and a couple of glasses of wine to calm my nerves.

We started heading to the Amphitheater and my heart was starting to race with excitement! For the first time in almost 13 years I was going to see Stevie Nicks. This was my lovers' first time ever! He puts up with A LOT with my Stevie Nicks/Supremes worship! The security and metal detectors were a reminder of the strange new world we live. It also reminded us of what were going to forget about for a while with Stevie.

The stage was framed with two huge American flags. It was amazing to see the crowd stand at attention and sing the national anthem with such pride and love. California opened the show, but I was getting the jitters and we excused ourselves to the bar. We met two more couples that were made up of one Stevie groupie and one loyal companion along for the ride.

We return to our seats and the place was filling up and getting pumped up and ready for Stevie. I was thrilled to see so many people decked out in their best Stevie-ware. The ladies behind us were wonderful and my partner pre-warned them to expect nothing up complete raw energy from me when Stevie hit the stage. It all started when "Bootylishious" came on. I was up and it was ON! "You're not kiddin?" they remarked. When the lights came and down and Stevie hit the stage the place was on their feet. She sang, she twirled, she gave it she all! I have seen her 8 times in the past 22 years and she has never been better. What has impressed me the most is her communication with the audience. No longer just the "Hello (insert city name here)!" She talks to us like we are old dear friends. In a way we all are.

Since this was the first major concert that I have been to since moving from San Francisco to Los Angeles, it was thrilling to hear Stevie speak lovingly about my new hometown. "It was so hard for us to leave New York and DC. We even had an F-16 escort in DC. I can't tell you how wonderful it was to set foot back home in Los Angeles." We Angelinos were happy to have her home, too.

Like the previous night, Don Henley graced the stage for "Leather and Lace". Stevie was just glowing sharing the stage with Don. She stood behind him and lovingly hugged him as he sang his part. Their voices blended in beautiful harmony. Also we were blessed with the wonderful Sheryl Crow. Sheryl and Stevie tore the stage up with "Sorcerer" which is becoming my one of my favorites.

The rest of the evening is like a wonderful dream that you never want to end. "Stand Back" is still one of the highlights as is "Edge Of Seventeen". But like all good things, the night came to a close. As with all the other shows, Stevie opens her heart once more and closed the show and the tour with "Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You". You can feel the love coming from performer to audience and back. One more thunderous ovation and it was over.

As we filled out of the Amphitheater into the clear starry Los Angeles night, we all walked towards our cars and back to our own lives, but not without an encore of our own. Some of the people started cheering and I got a few people to start singing. As we walk out of each other's lives, we started singing "I hear the call of the night bird! I still hear the call of the night bird!" Other people joined in and we walked through Universal City Walk singing our hearts out. A few of the women I was singing with hugged my lover and me good-by. Total strangers, but a family in a way.

It was a magical night. Thank you, Stevie. I'll never forget this night. I'll never forget you. I love you.

25. Ironic you say that
I have a friend that is on the edge (like the "Edge of Seventeen") of busting out to the big times and she's offered me to work for her when and if it happens.

THAT would be the job of my dreams.

27. It was around the time 8-tracks were dying out.
My 1st car had a cassette player. Then I totaled it and my next one had an 8-Track in it. I had to buy one of those lame "converters" for it.

Thank god for CD's!
