After years of being a Stevie Nicks fan, I was thrilled to finally score tickets for her 24 Karot Gold tour in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

The show was at The Palace of Auburn Hills. Nicks’ opening act was The Pretenders, with front-runner Chrissie Hynde on lead vocals.

I thought the Pretender’s show was great. Chrissie ran around the stage, had lots of energy, and played a few incredible guitar solos. Their tracks included “I’ll Stand By You,” and “Brass in Pocket.” They played for about an hour.

After they left the stage, the excitement for Stevie Nicks, of Fleetwood Mac fame, could be felt throughout the venue. I was almost shaking with anticipation; after years of waiting I was finally going to see Stevie Nicks in the flesh! When she finally entered the stage, the crowd went wild! Everyone was screaming and clapping, and cheering for her. It was an amazing moment that I’ll remember it forever.

Stevie kicked off her two-hour concert with a few songs from her 2015 Album “24 Karot Gold,” including “Gypsy” and “Stop Dragging My Heart Around.” Her show featured video graphics that played behind her, and lamp lights dropped down from the ceiling. She also included a tribute to the late Prince, who was a long-time friend of hers.

She ended the show with one of her most famous songs, “Edge of Seventeen.” Of course, after an amazing show, the audience demanded an encore. After about five minutes of cheering, Stevie entered the stage again, and played one of my personal favorites, “Rhiannon.”     I was extremely pleased with the layout of the concert stage and the setlist. The only complaint I had was that she didn’t play “Landslide,” which was a song I would have loved to have heard. Other than that, the show was incredible.

After her encore, she thanked the crowd, took a bow with her stage crew and band, and then she was gone.
