Stevie Nicks returns to stage, performs first show in 3 years

Stevie Nicks performed her first show in nearly three years, taking the stage at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on Saturday afternoon. 

Stevie kicked off the show with her famous double-shot “Outside the Rain”/”Dreams” opener, before welcoming the the sea of festival revealers with huge appreciation. “Oh my God, look at you!” she joyfully exclaimed. “Let’s hear it for yourselves!” She acknowledged her unusually long time away from the stage (due to the pandemic, of course). “So let’s just continue on our way for the first time in three years, YES!

Despite the time off, Stevie sang and danced with ease, performing a crowd-pleasing set of her biggest hits, such as “Dreams,” “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” and “Stand Back.” She showed her trademark flowy stage moves for “Gypsy,” “Rhiannon” and “Gold Dust Woman.”

Stevie honored her friends and musical inspirations through the show. She dedicated “Landslide” to Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, her friend and collaborator, who unexpectedly passed away in March. She covered Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin’,” an homage to her longtime friend and confidant, who died in 2017. Finally, she ended the show with a pair of tributes, her 2011 Hurricane Katrina-inspired “New Orleans” and Led Zeppelin’s 1971 classic  “Rock and Roll.” 

Stevie Nicks moves on to the sold-out Red Rocks Amphitheatre show in Morrison, CO on Wednesday.
