Happy Valentine’s Day! Stevie Nicks has been busy rehearsing for her upcoming tour. “Working on a new set list…any requests? she asked in a new social media post on the famous day for lovers. Of course, this generated thousands of suggestions from her legion of fans, who took a deep dive into Stevie’s five-decade back catalog. 50 years! Long Distance Winner! The Highwayman! Talk to Me! Angel!
While Stevie can always unleash a good cover, fans seem divided on whether any of those songs should be included at all for the tour. On the one hand, Stevie has always honored her musical inspirations on stage; Tom Petty (“I Need to Know”), Led Zeppelin (“Rock and Roll”), and most recently Buffalo Springfield (“For What It’s Worth,”) for example. But, with the future of Fleetwood Mac forever cast in doubt, every opportunity to perform seems more precious than ever. So why not fill the set list with the very best songs, which Stevie Nicks devotees feel is material from her own catalog? So the discussion wages on.
Whatever she decides to include, I can’t wait for Stevie to hit the stage and rock a little (nudge nudge hint hint).
