RECAP: Houston TX, Toyota Center

On Saturday night, Stevie Nicks performed at the Toyota Center in Houston — the third show of the 24 Karat Gold Tour. With no set list adjustments, Stevie has settled into performing the diverse selection of songs she has chosen for the tour, which includes “Wild Heart,” “Bella Donna,” “Crying in the Night,” and three songs from her latest release, 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault.

‘Your first album is just a fluke’

“Thank you. Just a note about those two songs. First of all, ‘Wild Heart’ has never been done onstage—ever. And ‘Bella Donna’s only been done maybe… Like on Bella Donna tour, I think it was like two weeks, and then I had to go rushing back to Fleetwood Mac because that was the promise.

Those two songs are the real reason that we’re even standing up here because Bella Donna was the first album, Wild Heart was the second album. And that solo career was only cemented by that second album because in this world of music then and now, your first album is just a fluke. Your second album proves that it wasn’t just a fluke. So those are those two songs. Thank you.”

‘Steal the poem’

After performing “Annabel Lee,” Stevie shared some unconventional songwriting advice. “This is what you can do if you’re a poet and you can’t write poetry. You get a book like Edgar Allan Poe or Oscar Wilde, and you steal the poem right out of it. And you sit at the piano and you just like take the poems and write music. And all of the sudden, you’re a songwriter and you love it. Easy. Seriously, I’m not kidding. Try it.” (This is only possible because literature by Poe and Wilde are public domain works, free of copyright restrictions.)

‘The city survived’

This next song is a pretty serious song. It was written right as Hurricane Katrina was just about to hit. I was in California in my house by the ocean in Santa Monica. And I had been sitting there probably for 24 hours, watching it like we all were, and like it was scary because it was for me, I was looking at an ocean going, Oh my God, what if that was like coming toward me. And so I started writing a poem, a very long, very formal poem which are my favorite poems, and I finished it very fast because it was so emotional. And I remember that I had a CD next to my bed in my bedside table that had been there like three years that a friend of mine who is a wonderful guitarist and songwriter, had given me, and I just listened to it and put it away. And I ran and got it and by the end of like 20 minutes, I had written this song. So in its own way, it was written at a time when the world was just caving in. But now it has gone to a place where it did what I hoped it did when I wrote the poem. It is somewhat celebratory because everybody survived. Not everybody survived, but a lot of people survived, and the city survived. So it’s called ‘New Orleans’.”

‘I appreciate you every day’

During the band introductions, Stevie made some touching comments about her longtime backup singer Sharon Celani. “Sharon Celani has been singing with me since 1978. She has gone to limit for me many, many times. And Sharon, I appreciate you every day. I just want you to know that and remember that you are such a beautiful person.”
