On Saturday night, Stevie performed a benefit show for St. Joseph Hospital of Orange, California. The special dinner and concert were held at the City National Grove of Anaheim, where approximately 650 guests attended.
Stevie performed a special selection of her classic hits, such as “Dreams,” “Rhiannon,” and “Gold Dust Woman.”
Stevie also donated a signed tambourine and did a meet-and-greet with VIP guests after the concert.
Here is a full review of the show.
Special thanks to Roadmap Photography, St. Joseph Hospital, and The News from EventWorks for sharing details from this wonderful evening!

Fleetwood Mac to give lone 2016 performance at Dodgers Stadium for team’s annual gala
Fleetwood Mac has announced its first concert following the Nov. 2015 wrap of its lengthy On With the Show tour. It’ll come in a familiar city, but it’s not the most familiar type of gig for the legendary band.
Major League Baseball’s Los Angeles Dodgers have tapped Fleetwood Mac to perform at their second annual Blue Diamond Gala on July 28. They’ll close out the night with a set from centerfield, following a blue carpet entrance (in honor of the Dodger colors) and a ceremony honoring Vin Scully, the iconic Dodgers announcer who plans to retire at season’s end.
The performance will be Fleetwood Mac’s only in 2016, according to the Dodgers’ official web site.
The event will also include Dodgers players and coaches, as well as event chairs Shelli and Irving Azoff. The band is currently managed by Azoff MSG Entertainment.
All proceeds from the evening will go towards the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation, which benefits underprivileged local communities.
Admission to the event — based on sponsorship packages — is also detailed on the Dodgers’ site.
The On With the Show tour saw the return of Christine McVie (who quit the band in 1998) thus reassembling its “classic” lineup alongside Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie. All five will perform at the Dodger gala.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are honoring Vin Scully with a Fleetwood Mac concert on July 28
I never did believe in the ways of magic, but I’m beginning to wonder why: for Vin Scully and Fleetwood Mac, two of the most miraculous entities in existence, will be joined together under the skies at Dodger Stadium next month for a ‘Blue Diamond Gala’ in honor of the legendary announcer.
We sure will miss Vin after he retires at the end of this year, and Angelenos have been showing their appreciation in many ways, kicking off his last season with the renaming of Elysian Park Ave in honor of Scully himself. A tribute performance to Vinny by one of the greatest bands of all-time is literally ripped from the headlines of my dreams.
The ‘Blue Diamond Gala‘ will be held at Dodger Stadium on Thursday, July 28, and ticket packages start at $1,500 for all the paupers out there.
