Stevie Nicks is coming back to Turning Stone.

The member of classic rock band Fleetwood Mac will bring her show to the resort and casino’s Event Center at 8 p.m. Aug. 25.

Tickets, priced at $80, go on sale at 10 a.m. May 15 at the Event Center box office, ticketmaster.com and by phone at 877-833-7469.

I caught her show at the Event Center in June 2007, and wrote a review for The Post-Standard. It started:

Stevie Nicks was in fine voice Tuesday night at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino’s Event Center.

Front and center amid her seven musicians and three backup vocalists, the woman who put much of the mystery into Fleetwood Mac belted out the hits like a true rock star.

One year removed from her 60th birthday, Nicks looked and sounded much like the energetic star who delivered to America a long line of hits, from the Buckingham Nicks start of 1971 to the full-blown Fleetwood Mac days to the solo career that bloomed because the three or four songs per album she was allowed to contribute to “The Mac, ” as she called them, weren’t enough to satisfy her songwriting talents.

She told the just-about-capacity crowd just that early on during the concert. Nicks would be in a chatty mood, she explained, because she wanted to talk about all those great songs of hers.

From the first song of the night, “Stand Back, ” it was obvious that Nicks’ pure, soaring rock voice still sizzles. It was vintage Nicks, dressed mostly in black, numerous strands of beads draped from her microphone stand, body ready to twirl with arms extended as if she really believed a wind beneath the balloon sleeves of her outfit could carry her off into the clouds.

Her band, led by her longtime friend and music director Waddy Wachtel on a very demonstrative guitar, was forever ready to help Nicks drive home the point with equal parts melody and power.

Between songs, Nicks smiled a whole lot.

“In 1981, going solo from the Mac was a very dangerous thing to do, ” she said. “I didn’t want to split up the band, but I needed a vehicle to do more than three or four songs a record as a songwriter. So we put out the album “Belladonna.”‘

The rest, she declared, was made rock ‘n’ roll history.
