Blimp Time Hop: Stevie Nicks/Joe Walsh At The Civic Center
36 years ago today, Stevie Nicks played a sold-out show at the Civic Center! This was really more of a double-bill with Joe Walsh opening the show. Stevie was on tour promoting her album, The Wild Heart and had just debuted new songs at the US Festival earlier that year in May.
Joe was on tour promoting his new album, You Bought It, You Name It featuring the songs Space Age Whiz Kids and I.L.B.T. An important development to note is, as the tour continued into 1984 Joe and Stevie became romantically involved.
Stevie was once quoted in an article about their relationship on New Zealand's The Sound website saying that Joe was “the great, great love of my life.” Awwww.
It was September 8, 1983 and a packed house in Portland for Stevie Nicks and Joe Walsh.
Check out this great set from her first trip to Portland, Maine. Some signature Stevie/Fleetwood Mac classics on that magical night too!
Here's Stevie and Joe in 1983 at the US Festival!
