Stevie Nicks Returns to Alabama in 2023: Here’s How to Get Tickets

Stevie Nicks, the dark-voiced rocker who rose to fame as a standout member of Fleetwood Mac, has announced 14 solo concert dates this year, including a show in Alabama.

Nicks, 74, will perform at the BJCC’s Legacy Arena on April 5 in Birmingham. Ticket prices for the 7pm show are $59.50, $99.50, $149.50, $225 and $279.50 plus service charges via Ticketmaster. They go on sale Friday, January 27 at 10am CT.

Promoter Live Nation/Red Mountain Entertainment announced the Birmingham date Monday, along with concerts in southern cities like New Orleans (April 2, Smoothie King Center); Knoxville, Tenn. (May 16, Thompson-Boling Arena); and Atlanta (May 22, State Farm Arena).

Nicks, a charismatic singer-songwriter, returns to Alabama after a sold-out Halloween 2022 show at Huntsville’s Orion Amphitheater. More than 800 people were “mesmerized by Nicks, the ultimate witch of rock ‘n’ roll,” Matt Wake said in his review for AL.com.

“Backed by her superb band of eight, she exuded the talent that made her the first two-time female inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,” reads the review. “On the stage of Orion, her aura remained timeless. … From the first note she sang, Nick’s voice charged the electrons in the air. It’s a haunting, disturbing sound. Despite having her own rock heroes, including Janis Joplin, Nicks has never sounded like her. And nobody has sounded like Stevie Nicks since. It has its frequency.”

Nick’s setlist in Huntsville included Fleetwood Mac gems like “Gold Dust Woman”, “Landslide”, “Dreams” and “Rhiannon” as well as signature songs from her solo catalog like “Bella Donna”, “Wild Heart”, “Enchanted” and ” Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around”. (See the full setlist here.)

Nicks is a longtime favorite in Alabama, particularly in the Birmingham area, where she has performed with Fleetwood Mac, as a solo artist, and with the duo Buckingham Nicks during her early career.

Birmingham’s love affair with Nicks dates back to 1975 when she and Lindsey Buckingham performed at the Municipal Auditorium (now Boutwell Auditorium) to promote their self-titled debut album Buckingham Nicks. Thanks to airplay on a local radio station, the record was warmly welcomed here, and Birmingham was one of the few cities to see large crowds of fans for the duo. Both Nicks and Buckingham, who would soon be joining Fleetwood Mac, said the Birmingham gig gave them their first taste of fame.

Nicks last performed in Birmingham in May 2019 with Fleetwood Mac without Buckingham but joined by four members of the band’s best known lineup: bassist John McVie, drummer Mick Fleetwood and singer/keyboardist Christine McVie.

Nicks also played with Fleetwood Mac in Birmingham in 2003, on a tour that included Buckingham but not McVie. In July 1998, Nicks performed with her solo band at the Oak Mountain Amphitheater in Pelham.

With Fleetwood Mac, Nicks was a driving force for albums such as 1977’s Rumors, 1979’s double album Tusk and 1987’s Tango in the Night. Her solo studio albums range from 1981’s Bella Donna to 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault, 2014.
