RECAP: Bourbon & Beyond Festival

On Sunday night, Stevie Nicks closed out the Bourbon & Beyond Festival, performing on the Oak Stage (“oak” naturally being one of many references to the celebrated beverage of the evening).

At tonight’s show, the stage configuration was noticeably different, without the large projection screen serving as the stage backdrop. The usual graphics that displayed and illustrated Stevie’s storytelling were missing, as well. So this time around, Stevie kept the stories and stage banter short and succinct.

“If you’re smoking out there, will you just try to, like, blow it a little bit that way [gesturing to her right] or a little bit that way [gesturing to her left] because if you shut down my voice, you’ll be coming up here and I’m gonna be just like training you onstage to-night. It could be your big break. It’s a big risk before you know. So anyone…anyway…anywhere, let’s go!”

“I considered having a big, big class of bourbon about halfway through the show. I don’t even do that anymore and I was thinking BRING ON THE BOURBON! So thank you so much for coming out tonight. You are just so special for letting us close down your bourbon festival, which doesn’t mean you have to close it down. It just means that we’re going back to Los Angeles. So thank you so much! You have been an awesome, awesome audience! Thank you!”

Landslide (Pete Miller)

Stevie Nicks – Landslide (Bourbon & Beyond 2017)

“Thank you. So this next song was written in Aspen, Colorado in 1973. It’s the only time I’ve ever been in the snow-covered mountains in my life, and I was there that summer. And this little song for all practical purposes took us to the top. So I’d like to dedicate this to you and your bourbon festival. It’s called ‘Landslide’.”

After Landslide

“Thank you! You helped me get through this. I was a little rough on my voice, but you know what? With you guys out there, what else could I do but like push on through? So thank you for being awesome, and strong, and kind, and a wonderful audience, and listening to all our songs after all these years. Don’t think for one minute that we don’t appreciate every little thing that you do because we do. Thank you! Bless you!”

Reviews

Five things you missed Saturday at the Bourbon & Beyond Festival in Louisville (Jeffrey Lee Puckett / September 25, 2017 / Courier-Journal)

2. Stevie Nicks doesn’t exactly have a pretty voice but you definitely can’t mistake it; that growling vibrato is instantly recognizable. She closed the festival with her own set of classic hits fueled by a stellar band, surprisingly goofy stage banter, and some damn fine twirling.

A Tale of Two Festivals: Moving between Bourbon & Beyond and Cropped Out (Michael C. Powell / Leo Weekly / September 25, 2017)

Stevie Nicks, who can still twirl pushing 70 (and belted out a majestic rendition of “Gypsy”), referred to it on stage as “The Bourbon Fest.”

    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 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 […]
