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.

  • 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 […]
