2 Music Legends, 1 Amazing Concert in Texas
If you've never seen Billy Joel or Stevie Nicks in concert, now you have the chance to see them both... at the same show. Officials recently announced that Billy Joel and Stevie Nicks will be performing for one night only at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX on Saturday night, April 8th, 2023.
Ironically, I had a chance to see Billy Joel in concert for 'free', and passed it up. My daughter and I went to the F1 race last October in Austin, Texas. Billy Joel was the scheduled 'free concert' on Saturday night. But even in October, it was so hot in Austin, and we had to park what felt like miles away from the circuit, that by the time they finished the practice rounds and qualifying late Saturday afternoon, we were completely wiped out. Qualifying finished around 6P, but the concert didn't start until around 8P, and we were just ready to get back to our AirBNB, which was about 45 minutes from the Circuit of the Americas. So we missed the concert.
I actually have seen Stevie Nicks in concert though. Back in the late-seventies, they used to have these massive, all day concerts in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas called Texxas Jams. The concerts featured the biggest names in rock touring in those days, including The Eagles, Foreigner, Van Halen, Boston, Heart, Ted Nugent, and Journey, to name a few. In 1978 the lineup included Bob Welch, The Little River Band, The Steve Miller Band, and Fleetwood Mac. There was nothing better than Stevie Nicks in the late 70's. (Unless it was Linda Rondstat... or Heart... or Jessi Colter.. well....)
Stevie Nicks and Billy Joel are both multiple Grammy winners, as well as members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and this will be their first time performing together on the same stage. Tickets for the April concert go on sale Friday November 11th.
