Monday’s Stevie Nicks concert at Chastain Park Amphitheatre has been postponed until Wednesday, Aug. 17.

 A release from concert promoter Live Nation cites a medical reason as cause for the switch.

 Tickets for Monday’s show can be used at the new date. Also, some additional seats have just been released.

 The 8 p.m. show time with opener Michael Grimm remains the same.

 Refunds, if necessary, are available at point of purchase.

She use to be a hottie, now she is a nottie. Too bad when a singer looses her voice. Time to retire unless your hooked on the money.

She is still beautiful and she sings better then ever. That said.. how can they have a concert in Atlanta on Wednesday the 17th and one scheduled in Indianapolis the same night??
She’s good, but ,…… ????

Wow… thechain, you must be a lot better off than most people. I gotta hand it to you, you’re a better music fan than I am. It’s a big investment for me to plunk down $150 for two concert tickets to an Atlanta show, and I LIVE here… I mean, really, you’re flying in to watch a Stevie Nicks show? Just buy her greatest hits album… not much new in about 20 years, right? And between tickets at Chastain, hotel, and plane tickets, you spent HUNDREDS of dollars on this, right?

Sorry you’re out the hotel and airfare… but you gotta expect stuff like this. It could be a bad storm with high winds and lightning to cause a postponement, or her health, or whatever… I can see driving 2 or 3 or 4 hours to a concert MAYBE, but I’d never fly and book a hotel to see ANYBODY… too much of a risk. To each their own, I guess…

Good question, dzzz. I’ve contacted the promoter to ask and will post an update as soon as I have one. But the info I received definitely says Aug. 17!

Really??? John L. you can’t understand that a fan would fly into a city for a concert to see an artist that they truly adore? Well not everyone in the country lives near a metro city that they can just buy tickets and take a subway, taxi or drive to the venue. There are devoted fans in rural areas that are devoted to these artists and would like to have the chance to see them perform live in person and not just listen to the greatest hits on their stereo. Yes they can expect circumstances that happen beyond the artists control but they certainly have the right to have an opinion about it. That is what this forum is about.

Pros like Stevie should be truly admired for her (40) year career. Oh yeah, she was smokin’ hot back-in-the-day, too! Has anybody bothered to actually listen to the “artists” out there in the last (25) years; more importantly, how long each of this collective rabble lasts? Like I told my nephew: “Access the Greatest Hits of Lemonade Mouth; crack open another Red Bull, and text all your friends who know anything about music until your thumbs fall off. That should hold you for about five minutes.”

instead of discussing how much money you’re out, or whether Stevie is hot or not (she’s gorgeous!) or why she’s touring etc we should instead be saying how we hope she is well! Obviously something is going on that she’s canceling a concert, do you think she WANTS to disappoint/piss off anyone at all? Come on people chill out. I would be really disappointed too but don’t start bitching amongst yourselves, just hope for the best of stevie’s health. =)

I flew to London to see Elton John perform with an orchestra and chorus. I also saw Elton in NYC at Madison Square Garden. If you’re a huge fan of someone’s music you can make a vacation out of it.

If you have such a problem with the blacks…move to a country where there are not any blacks. So you think we like to ruin things for the whites…you think you are so special that the blacks even consider you …we are more concerned that we learn to speak and understand Spanish, so that we stay relevant in a country where your race will be a minority soon. We are not even thinking about how any of our actions impact you. Throughout history, the whites have tended to ruin more things for other races than blacks…primarily because they think that they are somehow more special and entitled. Thank God they are not!

@ Wink I saw Elton at The Tabernacle and Phillips. I did not have to “fly into” anyfreakinwhere to see him. I paid a couple hundred bucks for both. If you are telling the truth ( and I doubt it) you shelled out thousands for the same thing. PT Barnum always said “A fool and his money are easily parted”.. I guess that makes you a fool.

“we are more concerned that we learn to speak and understand Spanish”

Mo what are you talking about. Most blacks cannot even speak English. Most use words like “dat”, “dis”, “fo”, “dey”,etc. But my all time favorite black word is “Axe”. As in “Let me AXE you a quesshun”. So work on English instead of Ebonics.

Hey, I love SN and FM, and I wouldn’t pay $10 to hear her now. Her voice occasionally sounds okay, but more often than not, watch out.

That said, I was coerced into seeing Roy Clark (Hee Haw) a few weeks ago; 78, and he went to sleep on the stage while his band was playing…

But he can still riff a guitar, can still sing, and man, can he play a fiddle.

WOW … not sure how this thread got into racism … I am the lead singer in a local band and we are doing a Stevie Nicks tribute set. At our gig this past Saturday night our manager surprised us (the entire band) with pit tickets (8 rows from the stage seats) just so I can watch and perfect my STEVIE-ism for ur tribute show …. I am a fan and some say I sing like her … I hope she is OK and ready to rock on Wed…I agree with Southside Steve about today’s music (they just don’t make it like they did back in the 70’s and early 80’s) … I would like to see this thread kept as a GET WELL STEVIE instead of a ‘race bashing’ (btw I am white) … anyway …. just sayin’

In the last 25 years I’ve seen Stevie with or without the Mac in 11 different states. Like someone said we make a vacation around her shows. Besides the “local” north east coast venues in NY NJ MA CT & PA we’ve gone to FL TN NE AZ CO and CA for a vacation and a show (or sometimes 2 of her shows). And yes some people do make enough money to be able to do that and not worry about how much it may cost. Is she as good as she was? probably not, Does she still put on a good show yes!, Id rather pay to see her than 90% of the dreck you hear on the radio these days, artists that 10 years from now whose careers will involve the phrase “Would you like fries with that?”

I’m not going to see her for two reasons- and they are nothing to do with race, her age, her voice, or travel time. I’m not going to see her because she made this show a “Rock Set Up” so people cannot bring in any food or drinks. Bringing your picnic dinner is what makes Chastain Park so unique and special. And second, last time she performed here, she played less than 1 hour. I’m not kidding, she had about a 55 minute set with no encore. I was very unhappy and made the decision to not waste my money on her anymore. Good luck to the folks going on Wednesday…

Jeffrey

I also totally agree with the people that are making vacations around their entertainment choices. My wife and I have made several trips to various cities around concerts by Bruce Springsteen and Keith Urban. These bands know how to put on a show and I guarantee you that if they ever get to the point in their careers where they are playing the smaller venues like Chastain, they would never ask for the Rock Set Up and not allow food and drinks to be brought in. It’s not about the money for me, but it’s obvious Stevie (or her managment) wants a bigger cut of the concessions. Looks GREEDY to me…

Why are people so pissy about someone paying to see an artist somewhere other than Atlanta? Why do they have to be called a fool? If “Wink” can afford to fly to London to see Elton John, why do you care? I doubt that’s the only thing he/she did while in London. Maybe we should all just stay in Atlanta and wait for everything to come to us and never go outside the confines of the great State of Georgia for entertainment because to do that would just be stupid.

Jeffrey – she played a 75-minute set with Rod Stewart (7:30-8:45 p.m., I still have my notes) because that’s the way the show was set up. You could tell from the staging and the set lengths that even though it was technically a double bill, Rod clearly was the headliner. And I’m not sure I follow your logic on Chastain. How does postponing the show two days make her greedy, especially since she’s had to move other dates as well? It’s possible that she, like many artists who play Chastain, would prefer the focus be on her music and not conversations about dessert.

I interviewed her a couple of weeks ago and she specifically talked about looking forward to playing her usual two-hour set:

I will be there and I’m very excited about seeing my all time favorite female artist. I only wish John, Christine and Mick could join her on stage.

Please do not diminish this blog by race baiting. As a black woman, I refuse to be sucked in by someone with such an agenda.

Be blessed and I’ll see some of you at the concert!

Michael Grimm (last year’s winner of America’s Got Talent) is opening for her at all her concerts in August. He already has quite a following. Many of his fans are actually attending the concerts to see him. Youtube him. You will be impressed!! I will be going to see him in San Diego in September. . . . . No Stevie Nicks . . . just Michael Grimm

Ima is right. Michael Grimms is quite an amazing singer. I just went to the Stevie Nicks concert in the Houston area this past weekend, not to see her but to see the opening singer Michael Grimm. He sang 8 songs, including songs from his new CD. His voice is so powerful and he sings with so much emotion. If you don’t listen to any other song, listen to “Stay With Me Baby”. Wow!! Check him out at Youtube, and go to his Facebook page. He’ll have someone opening for him before long I do believe!

@Melissa, I didn’t say that moving the show back two days made her greedy. I said that her decision to make this show a “No tables,food, or drink” setup made her appear to be greedy and want the concessions numbers to be bigger (thus, a larger cut for the performer). There is always one or two acts every summer that do this and I disagree with it. If you don’t like the fact that everyone at Chastain brings in tables, candles, food, and wine- then don’t play at Chastain. I’m sure you see my point here…

Jeffrey

I really wish she would play a two hour set. She definitely has the catalog of great music to pool from. If she did play even an hour and a half and I were allowed to bring in the food and drinks that I usually bring to a Chastain show, I would be there on Wed. night…

Wow! I agree with Sher… how did this denigrate into a forum of racisim??!!! It is a shame, though, that people who obviously know nothing about Stevie Nicks, her performances of late, or her music, find themselves so full of b.s. that they have to spew it all here. I saw Stevie in Houston just 2 nights ago. She put on an almost 2 hour show…. she admitted that she was having trouble with her voice. I have seen and heard that she has done a couple of months of press for her NEW cd that came out in May…. and that’s hard on a singer’s voice! Anyway, her show was great… SHE was great… and she still can bring me to tears!! (How many 63-year-old women do you know who can still rock it??) For the nay-sayers out there… try checking out some of the new songs from her new cd (which, btw, she did several songs from in this show)… you might be pleasantly surprised! Make SURE you know what you’re talking about, BEFORE you bash someone…. (and, it’s a good thing to keep in mind in your everyday life, too!!) Feel better soon, Stevie!!!

This is not right I have tickets for the show in Indy and it has been canceled all together!! this is the second time she (Stevie) has done this I am done trying to see her…. how unprofessional 2 shows at the same venue….. Like I said I’m done (plus it was my birthday gift)………….

Well it may be our fault…I got tickets for my wife for Valetnines day, to the tour opener in Fort Lauderdale with Rod Stuart, but they cancelled that show due to Rod getting sick…after flying us down and shelling out bunch of money to stay on the beach. Now this was her B-Day present…

Got tix to see Stevie to check off another performer from my bucket list. I’ve seen 300+ concerts and thought this would be a great “date” show. Then I get to see the phenomenal guitarist Eric Johnson Thursday at the Variety.
Fly or travel to a rock show? Hell yes I would….especially to see ultimate hard rock bands (that never come to the deep south) like Maiden, Priest, Thin Lizzy and UFO and Michael Schenker is actually on tour as well.
I like to bring in food and my packed cooler like the next guy, but freaking CHAT-STAIN and the typical picnicking people won’t shut the hell up or show some respect during the performances. Frampton just stopped and stared mid-song a few weeks ago in utter disbelief. I was actually embarrassed…..I’m glad it’s a ROCK show setup….see you cats Wednesday night.

I am in an Atlanta based Classic Rock/Fleetwood Mock band “The Woodys” we don’t consider our band a “tribute” band because we play many other artists but love, love, love performing Stevie and FM.. @Melissa Ruggieri thanks for the posts and the article on Stevie.. please check out our site on FB and maybe come to a show soon!

Ok, so I check the website to find out if Stevie is ok or how serious the illness may be, and then I see all of these lame comments bashing Stevie Nicks below the brief article. What a bunch of sad people with nothing better to do than write negative comments about one of the legendary female rock icons of our time. I am embarrassed to be from Atlanta now. Stevie is an awesome performer today. If you were 63 and on the road you would have to make some adjustments in your performances too to preserve your health. Her schedule is non-stop this summer. I saw her with Rod Stwart back in March and am going again to see her Wednesday night. Stevie gives nothing but love and positive feelings and she is very humble and gracious about her success at something she truly loves and was born to do. This is my first blog ever, I had to. You folks are an embarressment like I said before.

I’ve just been reading over these comments. I have to say, people do have alot of opinions. I myself will be going to see Stevie Nicks. As a long time fan, and someone who has been to several concerts as a teenager, hers is one I never made it to. This will be the most wonderful night because she is such a spiritual and mystical person and even just seeing her on tv, you can feel the love and positive energy she has inside. She expresses that energy through her music. If more people would learn from her, I think this world would be a much better place. I look forward to seeing you Stevie Nicks and know it will be one concert I will never forget. Peace and Love be with you.
