Stevie Nicks Trouble in Shangri-La, 2001

2001 Trouble in Shangri-La Tour

Stevie Nicks supported the release of her sixth album Trouble in Shangri-La with a national tour. Sheryl Crow, who produced half the album, joined Stevie onstage at some shows on the tour. The tour strangely lived up to the album’s title as two separate events significantly disrupted the concert flow. Expected to be a summer tour, the shows began in Burgettstown, PA on July 6 and finally ended three months later in Universal City, CA on October 10.

Voice Problems

By August, Stevie was experiencing trouble with her voice, so she started postponing shows; the first two shows in the San Francisco Bay Area. The problem became readily apparent at her August 17th Santa Barbara, CA concert, where she temporarily stopped the show to reassess the condition of her voice. After several minutes, she carried on with the show, but apologized profusely to the audience for her hoarseness. On August 18, citing respiratory illness, Stevie postponed or canceled the remaining August shows to allow her voice to recover. Stevie later revealed that she had bronchitis.

9/11 Attacks

In September, Stevie resumed the tour with a stronger voice, but something far worse was about to happen. On September 11, Stevie was still in Toronto after performing a concert at the Molson Amphitheatre a night earlier. When terrorists attacked several American landmarks, Stevie was in the process of traveling to New York, where she was scheduled to perform two concerts, which were ultimately canceled. Despite the attacks, Stevie’s parents encouraged her to continue with the tour so that she could help people heal through the power of her music. Following their advice, Stevie emotionally continued the tour.

Stevie reflected on the harrowing experience in the song “Illume (9-11),” which she recorded for Fleetwood Mac’s 2003 album Say You Will.
