RECAP: Washington, DC – Verizon Center

On Monday night, Stevie Nicks performed at Verizon Center in the nation’s capital, Washington DC — the 11th show of the 24 Karat Gold Tour.

Stevie has been having a lot of fun on the tour, even letting an expletive unexpectedly roll off her tongue at the DC show. While telling the story of ‘Crying in Night,’ Stevie accidentally dropped the F-bomb, saying “Why in the f*ck not?” Shocked by what she had just said, Stevie instantly covered her mouth, walked away from the mic, and paced around the stage for a few moments before returning to the center to apologize to the crowd. She told them “I never swear onstage — ever!” But the crowd didn’t seem to mind in the slightest and found Stevie’s blooper moment to be quite human and amusing. They laughed and shouted out in support ‘We love you, Stevie!'” Even guitar Waddy Wachtel walked over, with a big grin on his face, and put his arm around the clearly mortified Stevie. She managed to compose herself and continue telling the story. (See the full clip below).

Crying in the Night – ‘Why in the f*ck not?’ (Dianne King-McGavin)

“…other people won’t like it. So maybe we shouldn’t do it. And finally, we’re like, ‘Why in the fuck not?’ Lynn Fleetwood, I know you’re out there. Do not tell anybody that you heard that. I do not swear onstage — ever. I swear in my regular life, but I do not ever swear onstage so I am…let me apologize for that.

Anyway, I did say basically that. So we just decided, OK, let’s do it, why not? Without using the expletive. So anyway, it’s uh a very, it’s cool song. I have no idea what in the world at 21, 22-years old what the hell these uh…that’s not a swear word. That’s just, you know, a place. Um, I think that it’s uh I can’t figure out what in the world I wrote it. I must have seen a movie or something that I wrote it about because it’s very interesting…intriguing words. So anyway, here it is, ‘Crying in the Night.'”
