RECAP: New Orleans, LA – Smoothie King Center

On Wednesday night, Stevie Nicks performed at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans — the 37th show of the 24 Karat Gold Tour. Stevie returned to the “city of dreams,” where performing her Hurricane-Katrina-inspired-song “New Orleans” obviously took on a special meaning.

Stevie Nicks "Landslide" – New Orleans 3/15/2017


“Thank you. That’s another one of the songs that’s always played at my show. And every once in a while I do actually say to each of the band members, ‘Can we just not do ‘Rhiannon’ this time?’ And they’re like [gasps]! Never works.

So this song, this song we’re gonna do now, was written in Aspen, Colorado in 1973. I was there in the winter in the frozen tundra, and Lindsey had gone to be the other half of the Everly Brothers because Wally actually couldn’t go, so Lindsey got the job instead. Right? So they didn’t need an Everly sister. They didn’t, so I got dumped in the snow in Aspen and I took my best friend Terry with me because I knew I was gonna be up there by myself, and I wasn’t gonna be up there by myself.

So Terry and I ended up at this horrible apartment with this horrible fisherman guy who lived upstairs, and it was not going to be a good thing. So we were there like one day and said, ‘No!’ So we packed up our stuff and we like kind of put everything back in — you guessed it — the Toyota, which wasn’t moving then either ’cause it was stuck in the snow and it had no reverse. So we just met some really nice people and they…it’s some really nice guys…it’s not what you might think at all. It was totally above… They gave us one of their three bedrooms and so we had a really nice play to stay for the entire time that Lindsey was gone. And so anyway, one night they knew people there because they lived there. They said, ‘We’re gonna go to dinner with these great people so why don’t you guys come with us?’ So we did and they had this beautiful house, this beautiful living room, and this beautiful view and I said, ‘Can I just not go with you to dinner and just stay, sit here on the floor, and look out at this, and write a song?’ And they, ‘Of course you can!’ And so they left and I had my Goya, my little classical Goya guitar and I sat and I wrote this little song.

Never in a million years did I think — once back to having your dreams coming true —  never in a million years did I think that this little song that I could play on the guitar would be the song that basically took us to the top. And not only that, but it has been off and on for several many years the favorite Super Bowl commercial song. So keep it in mind that one little tiny thing can change everything. So this little song is called ‘Landslide.'”

  • 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
    Rhino/Warner Bros. Records will be reissuing another deluxe edition of Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 album Rumours to coincide with the band’s remaining 2019 North American tour dates. 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 […]
