The melodic, creamy voice of Stevie Nicks has moved audiences for decades, both during her tenure with Fleetwood Mac and her illustrious solo career. Her solo tour dates have brought in thousand of people and have been highly regarded among her fans. Ms. Nicks continues to produce hit albums, and her latest record, In Your Dreams, has received great acclaim from critics and fans. The album has whetted the appetite of fans who are eagerly anticipating Stevie Nicks' upcoming tour dates in 2011.
The musical career of Stevie Nicks began when she wrote her very first song for her very first band in high school. It was then that she met Lindsey Buckingham who, years later, would ask her to perform with a band called Fritz in San Francisco. They opened for huge acts like Jimi Hendrix in the Bay Area before Buckingham and Nicks moved to Los Angeles to perform as a duo. In 1974, Lindsey Buckingham was invited to join Fleetwood Mac and accepted, on the condition that Stevie Nicks could also join. The band's self-titled album was a big hit, and Nicks began developing a signature style on tour dates, while breaking up with Buckingham shortly after the album's release.
During the production of Tusk, Stevie Nicks began to compile a solo album consisting of songs she had written years before. Her debut solo album, Belladonna, was released in 1981 and became an instant success. It was followed by constant solo tour dates, recording with Fleetwood Mac, and then touring with the band. After the release of Fleetwood Mac's Behind the Mask in 1990, Nicks left the group due to conflict with Mick Fleetwood that stemmed from Stevie's dual projects. Throughout the 90s, Stevie Nicks focused mainly on her solo tour dates and reorganizing her personal life. She bounced back in 2001 when she released the long anticipated Trouble in Shangri-La, which delighted fans and provided them with world wide tour dates.
Stevie Nicks released a slew of live albums and Greatest Hits records -- as well as becoming deeply involved in charity work -- before returning to the studio in 2010 to record In Your Dreams. The album has been compared to Belladonna in terms of quality and has given way to numerous tour dates in 2011. After an appearance at Hard Rock Calling in London on June 26, Nicks will begin her US concert schedule on August 9 in Denver. Stevie Nicks' 2011 tour dates end on September 4; with such a short concert schedule, fans better look for tickets soon.
