Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac fame, returned to the Peninsula this past weekend to perform at a private party in the redwoods up the hill from Menlo Park.
According to those in attendance, she talked to the audience that she had “a feeling of coming home.” That could be due to the fact that she attended Menlo-Atherton High School her senior year. She was strumming a guitar even then, as the photo taken from the the school’s 1966 yearbook attests.
The star-studded 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival lineup just got even bigger.
Fleetwood Mac will join the main stage bill, marking the first time the group will play together as a new band since Lindsey Buckingham’s exit in April.
“It is an honor to be performing at the iHeartRadio Music Festival for our very first time,” Stevie Nicks said in a statement. “The beauty of an event like this is that it is a true representation of the power of radio. It’s an opportunity for artists across all genres to share one stage and what we all love most – music!”
The two-day event, hosted by Ryan Seacrest, also includes previously announced performers Justin Timberlake, Carrie Underwood, Mariah Carey, Imagine Dragons, Jason Aldean, Sam Smith, Luke Bryan, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Panic! at the Disco, Kelly Clarkson, Shawn Mendes, Kygo, Rae Sremmurd and Logic.
The iHeartRadio Music Festival will take place September 21 and 22. at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and will broadcast live on iHeartMedia radio stations across the United States. The CW Network will also exclusively live-stream both nights of the festival via CWTV.com and The CW App.
“Best concert ever! Thank you to dear friends for hosting such a wonderful barbecue and private concert for friends and family. Stevie Nicks was fabulous. She’s 70! And she told so many ‘behind-the-scenes’ stories that encapsulated the rock and roll lifestyle of a few years/decades ago. She looked great and sang solid.”
