I share the same B-day,and my cats name is rhiannon.I saw your wonderful performance in Youngstown,Ohio.Stevie sang with all the conviction of early FM days,without the coke.I cant think of one thing that would've made the concert better.Oh,well maybe me up there with her.Stevie's vocals were top notch and as good if not better then recorded versions.I have to give credit to the city of Youngstown for opening there city to Stevie's fans.They had free parking in all downtown garages,and all the local bars were playing Stevie's music into the streets.Thank you Youngstown,Ohio and most of all thank you Stevie you are trully the best vocalist,writer,and performer ever period! P.S. your singing lessons to Belinda Carlisle haven't gone without notice,your singing style is very noticable in her solo career.All the love I have too Stevie The Queen of Rock thks from near Columbus,Ohio

I went see Stevie for the 6th time at the final stop of her current tour. This was the first time I have been to see her in an arena, all the other times have been at outdoor theatres. The set list was exactly as it has been for most of the tour. I was hoping that since this was the last night of the main part of the tour, perhaps she would treat us to something extra, but that was not to be. Vocally, Stevie sounded great, especially for being at the tail end of a tour. I was glad her voice was as powerful as ever. The highlight for me was definetly "If Anyone Falls", this has always been a favorite song of mine, and this was the first time I have gotten to see her sing it live. The vocal harmonies between her, Lori, Sharon and Jana at the end of the song just gave me chills. I also thought that the use of the video backdrop really enhanced the show. The images and displays really enhance the songs and add a real ambience to the stage. Nowhere is this more powerful than during Beauty and The Beast. Stevie looked stunning for this number and though it has never been a favorite song of mine, I must say, it was a breathtaking presentation for the song. Overall, I would say that this show ranks as my third favorite Stevie show, behind the Enchanted and Shangri-La tours. I rank those shows higher as they featured a lot more songs in the set and more variation in the song choices. At only thirteen songs, I felt this tour was lacking a bit and I would much rather hear some other songs instead of the same standard songs she seems to trot out for nearly every tour. I was particularly annoyed that of the thirteen songs performed, two were not even her own. As this was a "hits" tour I didnt quite understand why "I Need to Know" and "rock and roll" were included over hits like Talk to Me, Gypsy, I Cant Wait, or (please oh please) Sara. Still, I was glad to have the chance to see Stevie again and I know I will be there again the next time she hits the road.

It was another great show for the ageless rocker. She looked and sounded great with even better voice range this go round then from the Gold Dust Woman Show a couple years back. My how she still moves in those too cool platform boots. Vanessa Carlton opened again for her and sounded great but was hard to see with her back to one side of the audience. Her voice is strong and beginning to have a little more attitude. She credits Stevie for her wonderful mentoring. Stevie is such a professional giving credit to her band and appearing to appreciate all that they do for her tour, which some other performers could take note. I really would have liked to see a little more diversity with the set list it was about the same as the Gold Dust Woman Tour. Maybe adding either Talk to Me, I Can't Wait, Whole Lotta Trouble, Gypsy, Rooms on Fire, Trouble in Shangri-La, and a signature Has Anyone Ever Written A Song for You as a closing. I could do without I Need to Know, and How Still My Love. She has so many more great songs that could easily be put in the list. The visual displays for Landslide and Beauty and the Beast are extremely touching and memorable moments fro all to see. Hope she comes to Cleveland this fall to rock out as the Youngstown folks were subdued with security keeping people seated. It's hard to dance while seated.

I'm seeing a lot of 10's across the board at the Youngstown show. As far as the theory of getting better with age, the reigning queen of rock and roll, Ms. Stevie Nicks delivered. Stevie looked great and sounded superb. Stevie loaded up her supporting cast with all-stars such as Waddy, Lenny, Carlos, Sharon and Lori. They rocked the roof off the Chevy Centre to the point where I can't believe what I saw and heard was real. They were that good. I've had the luxury to see Stevie play in many venues in many cities, but let me tell you that Youngstown show was up there. The band downright brought it home, got right down to it, were very professional and had fun performing. The crowd was on their feet, singing, applauding and having fun. Can't get much better than that. As an added bonus, Vanessa Carlton from my home state of Pennsylvania opened the concert. Stevie Nicks, the poet in my heart, thank you so very much!

Great, great show at the Chevy Center Tuesday night!! Still can't believe Stevie performed so close to where I live. Very enthusiastic crowd for, as Stevie said, the last show for awhile. We were standing up & singing the whole time--everyone was a little giddy anyway, I think. Stevie was relaxed & chatty & in great voice. So good to see Lori finally also. Thank you all for coming to our small city!! We love you Stevie! Keep on rocking!

Just got back from the show in Youngstown. Was surprised that there wasn't a tour date in Pittsburgh or Cleveland, but I guess Youngsown was the happy medium. First time to the Chevrolet Centre, and its actually a good place to see a show. This was my third show of the tour and was a fantastic evening. Was great that Me and one of my best friends from my hometown got to see the show. It was even better that I landed Front Row seats for the show. Also metup with Dana and Tracey who also had front row seats. Was an emotional night...My friend recently lost his mother and after the show told me how inspiring and healing hearing Stevie and seeing her live. Still a bit bummed that Outside The Rain is out of the setlist...That song is loved by many many people, bring it back!!! The Band was on fire...The girls, and of course the vocals of stevie. The highlight was still How Still my Love...and also when stevie brought out Salumuth during the End, and her dog actually had a "cape" that was hand made. Stevie held her dog up to the audiance...It was fantastic. The crowd loved it. The edge walk was great....I actually got to shake the hands of ms nicks TWICE...she actually came back to me a second time and I snapped a picture of her with her hand out and with a big smile on her face. Having front row was a great ending to seeing the crystal Visions Tour. Hope to either see a solo release out Soon or something with the mac..... All the best stevie....

The Youngstown concert rocked ! It was definitely a "must see" and was not disappointed with the great anticipation of seeing a rock legend. The crowd was energetic, the performance was engaging, the incomparable/distinctive voice/style of Stevie Nicks took total command of the arena. If there was ever any doubt at age 59, the performance confirmed that the "female heart of Rock n Roll" still beats strong !

If you've read all the reviews, you know the clothes and set list. I just want to say that Stevie was great as usual, her voice clear and strong. She was absolutely beautiful. The set was interesting and enchanting. The video to Landslide was truly an inspirational, heartwarming, shed a tear, visual journey. I must say that Stevie always finds the way for me to fall in love with her music over and over again. Thank you Stevie for being you and sharing that with your fans!

This was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. Stevie is more beautiful than ever. She is very talented and knows how to put on a show. Youngstown has never seen a great show like this before. They were talking about it on the radio for days to come. I would love to see her come back in the northern Ohio area again. What a show thanks Stevie.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! What a lady! What a show! Stevie and her band "ROCKED THE HOUSE DOWN" here in Youngstown, OHIO on July 3 on their last stop for the summer. It is such an honor to have her perform here. Her beauty, her charm, her talent, and her voice take the meaning of CLASS ACT to a new dimension. As she sings in RHIANNON, "ONCE IN A MILLION YEARS A LADY LIKE HER RISES!" Thank you Stevie for so many years!
Pat
Our daughter and husband were visiting us from the east coast and treated us to tickets for your show. Honestly, it was the best concert I have ever been to. You look fabulous and after reading the stories featured "in your own words" on your web site we appreciate the experience even more. Wishing you the best and looking forward to another concert in the future.

Front Row Center Stage! What more can I say. This was my second time seeing them this summer and it was such a classy show. Stevie and the band were great. She was so chatty with the audience and it was fun hearing her stories. Some highlights for me were the stories she told about "Dreams" before she sang it, seeing Sulamith her Yorkie dressed up like Stevie, and at the very end when Carlos ran into the front row and hand delivered me a beer ! I will never throw that blue cup away! I hope to make it to one more front row show this summer. Thank you Stevie and crew for the memories that will last a lifetime...and to my good friend David for always getting me that "front row seat..." ~

I was at Stevie's show at the Chevrolet Center in Youngstown, Ohio, July 3rd, and it was the most amazing show ever! I saw her with Fleetwood Mac twice in the 70s, and once solo in the 80s or 90s, and she is every bit as good, her voice as crystal and vibrant as ever! She is sensual and exciting to see live and she put on a wonderful show that I will remember for a long time. The light and video show was also a great bonus, and I also loved the way she talked to the audience and told stories about her life and career. I hope I get to see her again some day. P.S. She looks great too! P.P.S. Vannessa Carlton was good too!

I just returned from Stevie's show on July 3 in Youngstown, OH and it was awesome. Stevie really was upbeat and talked allot during the show which was the first time that she has done that. The crowd was really into the show but the security was terrible. I have never been to a concert where if you were in the 2nd or 3rd row that they didn't let you go to the stage and the end of the show. All the people that wanted to give Stevie something couldn't get to the stage which is a damn shame considering how much people pay for tickets these days. I was lucky enough to give someone in the 1st row something to give to her and she gladly took it. It's great having the show start with Standback. It got the crowd going from the 1st beat. Stevie really looked great and wore her famous high heal boots for most of the concert. Of course she did her trademark twirls and poses which everyone comes to expect and cheer every move. My nieces Bailey 10, Bella 9 and Sarah 7 were at their 1st Stevie Nicks show and had a blast. (Actually it was their 1st ever concert). They all got tee-shirts and sang along to all the songs. I'm so glad that they had the chance to see the Queen of Rock & Roll--Miss Stevie Nicks perform live in their home town Youngstown, OH. I'm sure it's something they will never forget. I know I won't. Thank you Stevie for coming to Youngstown and making allot of dreams come true. You seemed so happy and hope that you keep on touring because you have allot of fans out there. Thanks to all my friends for trying to get me to the stage. I had a blast as usual. If anyone ever has a chance to see Stevie, It would be well worth your money. Here's to hoping Stevie tours for a long time to come, and hopefully she will come back to Youngstown. I for one will be there. Hopefully they hire new security that actually understand fans and enjoy music. Not the stick in the mud's they have there now. Even the staff couldn't ruin my night. Stevie, keep on rocking, and we'll keep on coming. A fan forever...

Truly an utterly awesome evening with Stevie. Having been a dedicated fan of her since the early 80's and seeing her in concert numerous times over the years, tonight, I was treated to a performance unlike any I can remember. Stevie looked stunning and her voice was even better! Being fortunate enough to have 4th row center floor seats was an unbelievable treat. The Chevrolet Center in Y'Town, Ohio is the perfect 'intimate' venue to witness Stevie's incredible talent. I even got a nod and a smile from Stevie, along with the other band members who appreciated my FUNCTIONAL light up equalizer T-Shirt, which really made my evening. I've moved up in rows over the years, but my goal is front row, so that I may shake her talented hand. Hopefully, that privilege in somewhere in my future. Thank you Stevie, for a truly memorable evening. As you heard from all of your fans tonight, WE LOVE YOU!
