White Winged Dove Tour (1981)

Stevie NicksStevie Nicks supported the release of her debut solo album Bella Donna with a short national tour. It was dubbed the White Winged Dove Tour, a reference to the song “Edge of Seventeen.” Despite the great success of the tour, Stevie completed the 11 shows and immediately reunited with Fleetwood Mac to begin recording Mirage (1982).

The last night of the tour was filmed for a HBO concert special, which featured some of the songs in the set list. Additional songs were broadcast on The Source, an NBC radio network that operated during the 1970s and 1980s. In 2016, those songs were remastered and reissued for the CD deluxe edition of Bella Donna.
