More Info

Stevie Nicks: The melodic, creamy voice of Stevie Nicks has moved audiences for decades, both during her tenure with Fleetwood Mac and her illustrious solo career. Her solo tour dates have brought in thousand of people and have been highly regarded among her fans. Ms. Nicks continues to produce hit albums, and her latest record, In Your Dreams, has received great acclaim from critics and fans. The album has whetted the appetite of fans who are eagerly anticipating Stevie Nicks' upcoming tour dates in 2011.

The musical career of Stevie Nicks began when she wrote her very first song for her very first band in high school. It was then that she met Lindsey Buckingham who, years later, would ask her to perform with a band called Fritz in San Francisco. They opened for huge acts like Jimi Hendrix in the Bay Area before Buckingham and Nicks moved to Los Angeles to perform as a duo. In 1974, Lindsey Buckingham was invited to join Fleetwood Mac and accepted, on the condition that Stevie Nicks could also join. The band's self-titled album was a big hit, and Nicks began developing a signature style on tour dates, while breaking up with Buckingham shortly after the album's release.

During the production of Tusk, Stevie Nicks began to compile a solo album consisting of songs she had written years before. Her debut solo album, Belladonna, was released in 1981 and became an instant success. It was followed by constant solo tour dates, recording with Fleetwood Mac, and then touring with the band. After the release of Fleetwood Mac's Behind the Mask in 1990, Nicks left the group due to conflict with Mick Fleetwood that stemmed from Stevie's dual projects. Throughout the 90s, Stevie Nicks focused mainly on her solo tour dates and reorganizing her personal life. She bounced back in 2001 when she released the long anticipated Trouble in Shangri-La, which delighted fans and provided them with world wide tour dates.

Stevie Nicks released a slew of live albums and Greatest Hits records -- as well as becoming deeply involved in charity work -- before returning to the studio in 2010 to record In Your Dreams. The album has been compared to Belladonna in terms of quality and has given way to numerous tour dates in 2011. After an appearance at Hard Rock Calling in London on June 26, Nicks will begin her US concert schedule on August 9 in Denver. Stevie Nicks' 2011 tour dates end on September 4; with such a short concert schedule, fans better look for tickets soon.

Vanessa Carlton: Vanessa Carlton emerged in the early 2000s as an opposing force to the wave of bubble-gum pop that dominated the airwaves. This singing pianist offered a refreshing throwback take of the singer-songwriter when she released her debut album in 2002. In preparation of the release of her fourth album in 2011, Vanessa Carlton tour dates are currently scheduled across the nation.

Carlton learned her signature instrument, the piano, from her mother as a girl after an inspiring trip to Disneyland where she heard "Its a Small World" for the first time. Carlton honed her piano skills while attending the Professional Children's School, a performing arts school where she studied ballet. Carlton enrolled at Columbia University upon graduating and moved to Manhattan. While in New York she met producer Peter Zizzo who invited Carlton to record a demo to shop to record labels.

While the demo secured her an indie label deal, an album never came to fruition. Material from her studio sessions did happen to catch the attention of A&M president, Ron Fair, who decided to sign Carlton to a deal after hearing "A Thousand Miles". The single was re-recorded for her debut album and went on to become a huge hit. It peaked at #5 on the Billboard 100 and was nominated for three Grammy Awards including Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Her debut album Be Not Nobody was released in 2002 and debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200. It subsequently featured the hit single "Ordinary Day". In support of the album, Vanessa Carlton tour dates were booked on the opening stage for Goo Goo Dolls and Third Eye Blind on their respective outings. Vanessa Carlton's concert schedule also included an intimate headlining tour in the US and Europe in 2003.

Following the success of her debut, she was asked to join the Counting Crows on their re-worked version of the Joni Mitchell classic "Big Yellow Taxi", which also became an Adult Contemporary hit. After touring with Third Eye Blind, Carlton developed a romantic and professional relationship with frontman Stephen Jenkins who stepped in to produce her sophomore album Harmonium. The album was released in 2004 and featured the lead-off single "White Houses" which was a moderate hit. In support of the album, Vanessa Carlton concert dates were scheduled in North America. The album was less successful than her debut and she decided to leave A&M citing a lack of label support.

In a surprising turn, Carlton signed with Irv Gotti's rap label, The Inc, and joined the roster that included Ja Rule and Ashanti. Produced with Gotti and the uber-talented Rick Rubin, Heroes and Thieves was released in 2007 and featured the single "Nolita Fairytale". It would be the only release on the label and she would continue to record as an independent artist. After years of hiatus, Carlton is about to return with her fourth album. Produced by English hitmaker, Steve Osbourne, the album will be released this Summer, 2011. In support of the album, Vanessa Carlton tour dates are currently scheduled nationally. The lead-off single "Carousel" was released to radio in May, 2011 and is expected to make an impact on the charts.
