On Saturday, August 17th, the Historic Hemet Theatre will host a tribute to the iconic Stevie Nicks and the British-American rock band, Fleetwood Mac.
During the 1970s, Fleetwood Mac became a music sensation, topping the record chart and winning awards around the world. Their 1978 album, Rumours, became the eighth-highest-selling album in history. As a member of Fleetwood Mac and as a solo artist, Stevie Nicks has produced over 40 top hits and sold more than 140 million records. This year, she became the first woman ever to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice (in 1998 with Fleetwood Mac and in 2019 as a solo artist). She has also been named one of the 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time. Top hits by Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks include, “Stop Dragging My Heart Around,” “Leather and Lace,” “Silver Springs,” “Gold Dust Woman,” “Talk to Me” and “Seventeen.
The L.A. based band, GYPSY, performs a Tribute to Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac that is a dynamic rock concert experience. The show includes elaborate costumes and captivating storytelling as well as world-class musicians fronted by the amazing vocals of Lisa McCormick. Even Stevie Nicks has remarked on the similarities between Lisa and herself.
