Still rocking, still dreaming, enchantress Nicks delivers
By Lauren Carter/ Music Review
Monday, June 18, 2007 - Updated: 07:53 AM EST

At 59, Stevie Nicks is still enchanting onstage. And she still has really great outfits.
Nicks’ nearly two-hour set at the Tweeter Center last night proved that rock’s goddess has maintained the illusion of youth, but more important, hasn’t lost the fire that fueled her best work.
Fleetwood Mac classics like “Rhiannon” and “Gold Dust Woman” were dark and ominous, giving Nicks ample time to sway meditatively and charm the crowd with dreamy twirls.
Nicks can play the hard rocker as well as the haunting enchantress, breaking out Tom Petty’s “I Need To Know” and a fiery “Stand Back,” making it clear that Nicks’ silk-and-sandpaper voice has dropped in register, but not intensity.
The night included a mixture of Fleetwood Mac classics and solo hits, from the country-tinged “Enchanted” off her debut album “Bella Donna” to “Dreams” and a hard-rocking “If Anyone Falls,” with longtime guitarist and musical director Waddy Wachtel punctuating the song with a driving guitar riff.
Nicks looked the epitome of mystical cool in a black ruffled waistcoat, skin-tight pants - and those boots. There was plenty of time for wardrobe changes, mostly leading to more black ruffled outfits and gauzy shawls.
The show was well-attended but not sold out, with enough women in top hats and black, flowy garb to signal Nicks’ influence on fashion.
The heavy riff of “Edge of Seventeen” officially closed out the nearly two-hour set, with Nicks making her signature walk around the stage only to return for an encore that included Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll” and a poignant “Beauty and the Beast.”

Nicks charms and twirls through harder-edged rock
By Sarah Rodman, Globe Staff | June 19, 2007
What do Stevie Nicks and Chris Isaak have in common?

Besides a record label and a onetime appearance by the erstwhile Fleetwood Mac chanteuse on Isaak's late, great eponymous Showtime series, not much it turns out.

There certainly appeared to be little fan base overlap for the night bird and the retro rocker Sunday night at the Tweeter Center. Judging by Nicks's rapturous reception, most of the 1/3 capacity crowd -- likely in part because the top ticket cost $125 -- was there to see the female half of this odd pairing.

Although the 59-year-old lost her high notes long ago, Nicks's familiar rasp was in strong form as she twirled and beguiled through a nearly two-hour performance, ably supported by her stalwart trio of female back up vocalists. Backed by a tight band, led by longtime guitarist Waddy Wachtel , Nicks clearly wanted to rock a little, focusing on her harder-edged solo material, like chugging opener "Stand Back," gauzy, dark Mac hits "Rhiannon" and "Dreams" and up-tempo covers of Tom Petty and Led Zeppelin.

Particularly effective was the simple acoustic arrangement of "Landslide," accompanied by video images of her father and her younger self, and the shiver-inducing death rattle stomp of "Gold Dust Woman."

The only disappointment was the number of songs relative to the length of the show. Several of her biggest hits were omitted for several reasons: band spotlights, including a superfluous drum solo; four costume changes, all variations on the be shawled, ruffled black dresses that are her trademark; and an endless outro to "Edge of Seventeen" as she shook hands with the faithful and it started to feel a bit like we'd been listening to the song since we were 17 .
