WASHINGTON, March 8, 2012—It is a mutual love fest between Stevie Nicks and Rod Stewart as the take off on their 2012 “Heart and Soul” Summer Tour appearing at the Verizon Center on Friday July 27 at 7:30 p.m.
Expressing their admiration for the other, the Hall of Famers says:
“I couldn’t be happier to be back on the boards with Stevie this summer,” says Rod Stewart. “We had fantastic fun on the road together last spring and I’m thrilled at the chance to bring it to new cities and fans this summer.”
Stevie Nicks says, “I had a great time last year on the road with Rod, he is really fun to work with. I am very excited to join him again this year.”
The first venue foray Rod and Stevie first was in the spring of 2011 for their acclaimed “Heart & Soul Tour” taking the legendary musicians on an 18-concert arena tour highlighted by two sold-out shows at both New York’s Madison Square Garden and the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
This year’s tour will hopefully feature a repeat of the more than three hour shows featuring individual performances of all of their biggest hits—opening with Stevie’s and closing with Rod’s—with a few rousing duets in the middle.
Last year’s shows were lauded by reviewers including US Weekly calling the show “magical,” with a set list that “sparked non-stop cheers from the sold-out masses,” and the Boston Globe declaring “Stewart & Nicks make a classic combination” delivering sold-out audiences a “hits-packed night of crystal visions and reasons to believe.”
