Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac's classic lineup of Christine McVie, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham are currently on a tour which lands in NYC tonight to begin a three-show run in the area. The only show in NYC proper is MSG tonight (1/22), and that's followed by Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall on Saturday (1/24) and Nassau Coliseum on Sunday (1/25). They return again next month to hit Prudential Center on February 8. You can still get tickets to those.

The tour's recent stop in Lincoln, NE last week was cut short after drummer Mick Fleetwood got sick backstage. Independent.IE reported, "A drum technician played Go Your Own Way for Fleetwood, then Christine McVie played the piano and sang Songbird with guitarist Lindsey Buckingham before the band ended the show." Luckily everything went fine at the following show in Grand Rapids. Let's hope it stays that way in NYC!

In related news, Night of 1000 Stevies, the annual Stevie Nicks tribute drag/burlesque/dance party returns for its 25th year to NYC's Irving Plaza on May 1. Tickets are on sale.

Night of a 1000 Stevies

NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES, New York City's legendary STEVIE NICKS homage, returned for its nineteenth annual edition on May 1 at THE HIGHLINE BALLROOM. NOTS 19: SONGS OF RHIANNON was a May Day marathon of twirling and enchantment, attended by over a thousand fans. This year's theme - and the centerpiece of the show - were the ten "SONGS OF RHIANNON" penned by STEVIE NICKS in her BUCKINGHAM NICKS days. In stage decor, visuals and costuming, NOTS 19 paid homage to the Celtic white witch RHIANNON - fitting for a date that was both MAY DAY and BELTANE. As always, "The Night" climaxed with the heart-stopping BATTLE OF A THOUSAND STEVIES, as all the show's performers and costumed fans took the stage for a final dose of "Total Stevie Realness".

NIGHT OF A THOUSAND STEVIES is the biggest and best-loved STEVIE NICKS fan event in the world, one of those great New York City spectacles that sparks travel from all around the globe. Born in 1990 at the tiny performance venue MOTHER at the weekly JACKIE 60 party, "The Night" has run for nineteen years, even inspiring the 2001 film GYPSY 83. Neither a contest nor a karaoke show, NOTS is the Stevie celebration plus ultra - a riot of shawls, lace, baby's breath, twirling, tambourines and great performance.

The real Stevie has a show coming up at Madison Square Garden. More pictures from Highline Ballroom below...

Night of 1000 Stevies

Stevie Nicks (who is currently on a break from Fleetwood Mac's 3-month Unleashed tour) (and not actually pictured above) will stop by New York City for a visit to the Union Square Barnes & Noble on Tuesday, March 31st (7pm). The autograph session event will promote Nicks' Live In Chicago DVD and The Soundstage Sessions CD, both out that day on Reprise Records. The CD is comprised of 10 songs from the live-show DVD, which was recorded in October 2007. Nicks appears on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon the following day, April 1st.

If you wanted to catch Fleetwood Mac in NYC, their MSG gig already happened (on March 15th).

"Opening with 1975's jubilant "Monday Morning," the band's remaining four main members wove through a two hour and 20 minute set that functioned as a nearly unbroken greatest hits medley." [Daily News]
But still coming up is annual party Night of 1,000 Stevies, "the biggest and best-loved Stevie Nicks fan event in the world," which is taking place at the Highline Ballroom in NYC on Friday May 1st. The event, presented by the Jackie Factory, is in its 19th year. The theme is "Songs of Rhiannon," a reference to the Fleetwood Mac tune "Rhiannon" (included on Nicks's live DVD) and the ten Nicks-penned songs about the mythological Welsh goddess. Tickets are on sale for the event.
