You know I have only seen Stevie Nicks perform live once… That was with Fleetwood Mac during the… I think the Peacekeeper tour… Don’t flame me if I’m wrong. It was at the Irvine Meadows and I had such a blast with my friend Annette….
I say this only because if I had a blast on my lawn seats sitting on my Koala Bear blanket I can only imagine what kind of time Scotty had third row at the Wiltern Theatre seeing Stevie Nicks perform at her Birthday show!
I think the pictures tell the story for themselves because once again they rock! Scotty and Anushika man… they have been blessed by the photo gods!
Check out Scotty’s full review below with amazing pics!
Stevie Nicks Celebrates Her Birthday with Fans!
The Wiltern, Los Angeles, CA – May 26, 2011
I just returned from spending an amazing evening with Stevie Nicks at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles. This was a special, intimate birthday show. Stevie turned 63 years young.
I left straight from work to the venue, which took almost two hours. Why is traffic so BAD on Thursdays in L.A.? I thought I would still be ok as lines for other shows at the Wiltern don’t get too long until just before the show. My mistake. When I got there, the line was already all the way down to the corner of the next block. I thought I had no chance of getting into the pit. I planted myself on the ground to wait for the doors to open at 7p.m. I met another cool fan of Stevie’s and music in general (Thanks Brian for being a great concert cohort!).
We made our way into the venue and raced for the pit. We passed up the cupcakes that were given out as you walked in to celebrate Stevie’s birthday. LUCKY us, we were one of the last ten or so people to get a coveted spot in the pit. The show began and we were in Stevie’s magical presence. The set list was as follows:

Gold Dust Woman
Ghosts Are Done
In Your Dreams
For What It’s Worth
Fall From Grace
Cheaper Than Free
Edge of 17
This was a great list of both new and old songs. Some of the songs were such a special treat to hear live (i.e. Moonlight and Love Is) Stevie Nicks was joined on stage by a few special guests that included, Lindsey Buckingham, Dave Stewart, Mike Campbell, and Mick Fleetwood (during the bows). It was one of those special shows that you knew were a once in a lifetime experience. I had a great spot, great company and Stevie Nicks in her glory. Happy Birthday Stevie Nicks and thank you!
