Stevie Nicks 24 Karat Gold Tour Salt Lake City UT February 25, 2017

On Saturday night, Stevie Nicks performed at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City — the second show of Leg 2 and 30th show overall. Salt Lake City was one of many cities where Stevie spent time as a child. She shared a story about attending public and Catholic stories in the area.

Hello, Salt Lake City, Utah! Well, you know that I went to the 8th and the 9th grade here. Oh, yeah. So in some cities, I’m…this whole tour is all about stories, and in some stories, there are different stories because specific things happened in different cities. And this city, I actually lived here, and I loved it. And we got transferred at the end of…like no, I was actually…went into like almost two months of the 10th grade and then my family got transferred to Los Angeles.

But this is the very funny story is that my parents told me, I was going to like Wasatch (right?) Junior High, and my mom and dad told me if you don’t get a B average, you’re not going on to the big high school with your best friend Karen, who’s here tonight. You are gonna go to the Catholic school in the middle of the city. And I’m like, they’d never do it, right? They would never, ever do that. Well, guess what? I didn’t get the B average, and they did it. And I had to walk like two blocks in the snow down to the bus to drive all the way to downtown Salt Lake City to the Catholic school. However, it totally backfired on my parents because it was really a fun school. And it was co-ed…yes! Ah! I did not rave. I didn’t rave about it because I knew that they would whip me right out of that school and put me in a convent.

So anyway, everybody, I’m so happy to be here because really I’ve…I really…I stayed yesterday up in Park City…so beautiful. And let me tell you, it is really snowing up there. I know you know, but it is snowing up there.

So this isn’t the same show you’ve probably seen before. It’s really different because I decided this time that I was going to go back into my catalog of — I like to call them the new-old songs, which were songs that didn’t go on albums for some reason or another. But songs I really loved. So I call it the gothic trunk of lost songs. So anyway, you’re gonna hear some, I think, really great songs tonight that are not that familiar but I’ll tell you the story of why they were written, and then you’ll understand and just roll with me on that. So, here we go! Let’s go!

At the end of the show, Stevie again mentioned having a personal attachment to the snowy area during her introduction for “Landslide.”

I went to Tom Petty’s house somewhere around 1981/1982. Maybe…it could have even been 1979, actually, probably was. And I went over to his house and I had my guitar in hand, in the case so I looked totally serious, even though I had super long nails which meant: Why are you bothering to bring your guitar? Because it looked good. So I would go over there once in a while and we’d like sit and write. So I walked in, I said ‘So I think I have a good song. I have a good poem, and I think the melody’s good.’ So he said, ‘OK, well, play it for me.’ No pressure. So I sit down at the piano and I play this song and he likes it! And he doesn’t like everything so you’ll thrilled when he does like something. So I said, ‘OK, good, so does that mean we can maybe record it?’ And he’s like, ‘Yeah, OK, well, OK, all right.’ And I said, ‘Are The Heartbreakers coming over?’ And goes like, ‘Yeah they’re kind of on their way.’ So they came slowly in.

And so anyway, long story short, we recorded this song, and it took like 20 minutes. It was really easy and…because I only three or four chords. So it was really easy, and it came out great, even the lead vocal was even good. So if he had been doing a record, or if I had been doing a record, it would have went on one of those records. But neither of us was doing a record so it went into the ‘gothic trunk of lost songs.’ And it stayed there until two years ago when I went to Nashville and took all my demos that were in the ‘gothic trunk of lost songs’ and recorded them exactly like they were on their demos. So here it is and it’s called ‘Starshine.’

Thank you. So that’s one of the five or six songs that have also been played every single time on the stage pretty much. And every once in a while I will say to whoever is the band, ‘So why don’t we just not do ‘Rhiannon’ this time, and this is the reaction I get… [gasps!]. So I go like, ‘OK!’

So this next song…and yes, there’s one more! There’s like maybe seven of those songs. And I wrote this song in Aspen. I totally wish I had written it here, but I wrote it in Aspen. It’s the only time I’d been in the snow covered mountains, snow covered hills or mountains, except for when I was here. I should have written it when I lived here because I was certainly more attached to here than I was the two months I spent in Aspen. And I wrote it in someone’s living room looking out over this beautiful view and trying to make a decision on what to do with my musical life. And so anyway, little did that little girl know that that song would really take her to the top. And that’s another way to tell you all that one little thing…because it may happen for you. Always keep your eyes open because that could be it. So here it is, ‘Landslide.’
