Today’s Blimp Time-Hop: Stevie and Joe at the CCCC
35 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 has been quoted as saying that Joe was “the great love of her life.” Awwww.
It was September 8, 1983 and a packed house in Portland for Stevie Nicks and Joe Walsh.
Great set from Stevie on her first trip to Portland, Maine! Plenty of Mac in there!
