Reigning rock ’n’ roll queen Stevie Nicks performed at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel last night as part of her In Your Dreams Tour, and Las Vegas’ America’s Got Talent winner Michael Grimm served as her opening act.
“Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and AEG Live were honored to welcome the one and only Stevie Nicks to The Joint,” said Paul Davis, vice president of entertainment at Hard Rock Hotel. “We built The Joint with the idea of creating the ultimate music experience and having legendary artists such as Stevie Nicks perform on our stage.”
Nicks, a multiple Grammy Award winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, has received glowing reviews for her new album. In Your Dreams debuted at No. 6 on Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart, and US Weekly declared it “the best album of Nicks’ four-decade career.” Nicks has enjoyed extraordinary success as a solo artist, live performer and member of the legendary band Fleetwood Mac.
Her new single “For What It’s Worth” was just released by Reprise Records. It follows a string of hits, including “Landslide,” “Rhiannon,” “Edge of 17,” “Talk to Me” and “Gold Dust Woman.” Nicks recently appeared on Good Morning America, The Voice and Dancing With the Stars.
Saturday’s set list included “Stand Back,” “Secret Love,” “Dreams,” “Moonlight,” “Annabel Lee,” “For What It’s Worth,” “Rhiannon,” “Landslide,” “Ghosts Are Gone,” “Leather and Lace,” “Edge of 17” and “Love Is.”
