Stevie performs ‘At the Fair’

24 Karat Gold Tour, Minnesota State Fair, August 25, Vanessa Carlton 2017On Friday night, Stevie performed at the Minnesota State Fair, an evening filled with songs, stories, and even a storm.

As she had two nights ago, Vanessa Carlton opened tonight’s show, performing a solid set. Stevie’s set began at 8:30 p.m. local time. She welcomed the crowd of 12,700+, telling them, “the one and only man I ever married lives here,” a reference to her ex-husband Kim Anderson. She mentioned Kim again later in the show when she told the story of “Stand Back.” “I know he’s out there somewhere, hiding!” she said pointing out into the audience.

As expected, Stevie told moving stories about Prince, who famously lived in the Minneapolis area. She dedicated “Moonlight (A Vampire’s Dream)” to him and felt his presence onstage, “watching over all of us.”

Unfortunately, due to a lightning storm, the show was cut short so Stevie didn’t perform her two-song encore (“Rhiannon” and “Landslide”), ending the night with “Edge of Seventeen” instead.

Reviews

Stevie Nicks charms State Fair crowd (Pioneer Press)

“Friday night’s unseasonably chilly, overcast weather, with a storm brewing in the distance, felt like the perfect backdrop for the melodramatic Nicks. But Nicks, 69, was in a terrific mood and spent much of the show grinning and chatting with the crowd of 12,724. She even indulged the faithful in a full-out twirl or two more than usual, earning cheers each time.” —Ross Raihala

Stevie Nicks’ fair debut cut short by weather (Star Tribune)

“The gold-dust woman met the sawdust confines of the Minnesota State Fair on Friday night, when rock legend Stevie Nicks hit the grandstand for the first time in her 45-year career. Only Nicks’ second show following a month-long break, it found her in relatively strong voice. …” —Chris Riemenschneider
