Stevie performs at Don Henley’s 70th birthday gig

Stevie Nicks joined Don Henley onstage for his 70th birthday bash concert at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas on Saturday night. Stevie’s appearance was announced several months ago, but it was marketed as a surprise to ticket holders.

Stevie and Don performed their smash hit duet “Leather and Lace” from Stevie’s 1981 solo album debut Bella Donna. Stevie then played the tambourine for the following song, Don’s hit single “Boys of Summer” from his 1984 album Building the Perfect Beast.

Stevie returned to the stage at the end of the show, playing the tambourine for “All She Wants to Do Is Dance,” (another hit single from Building the Perfect Beast ) and remained onstage for the set closer, The Beatles’ cover “Birthday.”

Other guests appearing at the show were Patty Smyth and Eagles members Timothy B. Schmit and Joe Walsh.

  • 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 […]

Perhaps it still […]

  • 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.
