Stevie Nicks
(Francisco Ruscalleda)

RECAP: Washington, DC – Verizon Center

On Monday night, Stevie Nicks performed at Verizon Center in the nation’s capital, Washington DC — the 11th show of the 24 Karat Gold Tour.

Stevie has been having a lot of fun on the tour, even letting an expletive unexpectedly roll off her tongue at the DC show. While telling the story of ‘Crying in Night,’ Stevie accidentally dropped the F-bomb, saying “Why in the f*ck not?” Shocked by what she had just said, Stevie instantly covered her mouth, walked away from the mic, and paced around the stage for a few moments before returning to the center to apologize to the crowd. She told them “I never swear onstage — ever!” But the crowd didn’t seem to mind in the slightest and found Stevie’s blooper moment to be quite human and amusing. They laughed and shouted out in support ‘We love you, Stevie!'” Even guitar Waddy Wachtel walked over, with a big grin on his face, and put his arm around the clearly mortified Stevie. She managed to compose herself and continue telling the story. (See the full clip below).

Crying in the Night – ‘Why in the f*ck not?’ (Dianne King-McGavin)

Stevie Nicks Cryin' in the Night


“…other people won’t like it. So maybe we shouldn’t do it. And finally, we’re like, ‘Why in the fuck not?’ Lynn Fleetwood, I know you’re out there. Do not tell anybody that you heard that. I do not swear onstage — ever. I swear in my regular life, but I do not ever swear onstage so I am…let me apologize for that.

Anyway, I did say basically that. So we just decided, OK, let’s do it, why not? Without using the expletive. So anyway, it’s uh a very, it’s cool song. I have no idea what in the world at 21, 22-years old what the hell these uh…that’s not a swear word. That’s just, you know, a place. Um, I think that it’s uh I can’t figure out what in the world I wrote it. I must have seen a movie or something that I wrote it about because it’s very interesting…intriguing words. So anyway, here it is, ‘Crying in the Night.'”

  • REVIEW: Fleetwood Mac at Rod Laver Arena Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    Given the well-documented dramas they’ve endured over the decades, you assumed by now Fleetwood Mac were pretty much invincible. However reuniting that classic Rumours-era line-up back for the 2014/2015 tour proved they had one more soap opera-style twist up their billowing sleeves. So in 2019, it’s either this Lindsey Buckingham-free version of Fleetwood Mac or […]
  • Fleetwood Frankenband a beautiful monster Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    FLEETWOOD MAC ★★★★ Rod Laver Arena, until September 9 Eighteen months ago, it seemed positively absurd that someone like Neil Finn – a well known musician and songwriter in his own right who had by no means put his feet up – could, or even would, join a band like Fleetwood Mac. Perhaps it still […]
  • Another Rumours deluxe set coming this fall Friday, August 23, 2019

The latest 4CD package, out October 25, compiles tracks from the previously released 2004 and 2013 reissues of the album. The package is a slimmed-down version of the 6-disc […]
  • Fleetwood Mac: Still going their own way Thursday, August 22, 2019
    Since it began as a British rock band in 1967, Fleetwood Mac has undergone 19 iterations while steadily adding Americans and, most recently, a New Zealander to its line-up. Its only remaining founding member is drummer Mick Fleetwood, who recently described each version of the group as “incredibly different musical episodes in this Shakespearean play […]
  • Seeing Fleetwood Mac in 2019 is a strange experience — but they’ve always been a strange band Wednesday, August 21, 2019
    If their songs weren’t so strong, endurance may be Fleetwood Mac’s greatest legacy Thirty minutes into Fleetwood Mac’s set at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre this week, Stevie Nicks admitted that she didn’t realise “Black Magic Woman” was a Fleetwood Mac song until well after she’d joined the band. It’s an astounding admission. Sure, the song […]
