[The Nicks Fix]

Stevie Nicks - FAN REVIEWS

08/27/2011 Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Bethel, NY

Stevie started the concert with, "Let's get this hurricane party started!" And, the party started! We were all grateful that she was willing to do the show even with hurricane Irene coming on! I don't think she could believe that we showed up! It was worth it! From the oldies to the songs from In Your Dreams. I saw Stevie in Bethel before. It was 1998 and it was called A Day In The Garden. There were no seats then! Just the rain and Stevie! Tonight the weather cooperated and I got to listen to the most beautiful woman with the most beautiful voice for almost two hours! Thank you, Stevie for being willing to go on with the show! One more quote from the Queen of Rock, "Be damned, Irene!" And she was.

The Queen of Rock plays the house that rock built...the original site of Woodstock Bethel Woods, NY I don't even know where to begin! Somehow STEVIE just manages to sound better and better every time I see her, and last night was no exception. We were facing the possibility of having Irene run into us, but the show went on, and what a show it was STEVIE was hosting a 'hurricane party' in her words and Irene be damned!! She seemed so comfortable speaking to us about her music, her visits to the soldiers, her passions. It truly was so cool to have her be so at ease in light of the weather. It felt like she stopped by for an evening with friends. She performed the old favs including: Rhiannon, Landslide, Stand back, Dreams....mixed it up with songs from the new album Annabel Lee, Soldiers Angel, For What Its Worth, Ghosts Are Gone.Then surprise she sings Leather and Lace with her job coach. OUTSTANDING!! Band STEVIE as always..YOU ROCKED Due to the weather, my husband couldn't attend and I brought my granddaughter. Ticket $165 Shirts $80 The look on my granddaughters face when she got to touch STEVIE and give her a gift during Edge of Seventeen PRICELESS!!! Thank You Ms Nicks for another outstanding concert!!! You are indeed the one and only Queen of Rock!!

I’ve seen Stevie more times than I have fingers and toes, and in a variety of cities, venues, and types of tours. This “hurricane party” at Bethel Woods was possibly the best solo show I’ve seen, topping The Wild Heart Tour, the Trouble In Shangri-La tour, and even the Enchanted tour for me.

Her voice seems stronger and more flexible each time I see her, she seems more and more comfortable chatting with the audience each time I see her. The band couldn’t be any more cohesive. And the ladies, well, Sharon and Lori never disappoint. Strong, beautiful, fluid back-ups.

This tour is the type I always hope for – lots of new music. The new songs were tight and rockin’. Outstanding.

Even the old favorites were changed up a bit, a nice, fresh touch.

I’m so grateful I was able to experience this tour. Go, if you haven’t. Seriously.
