The poster declares “Two Icons One Night” but fortunately for fans, Billy Joel and Stevie Nicks will be teaming up for more than just one concert. So far, dates have been set at stadiums in three cities, starting March 10 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.
The other stops on the routing for the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers are April 8 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and May 19 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.
Wilson Howard, Chairman of Live Nation’s southeast division, told The Tennessean that more dates may be announced, though one shouldn’t expect a full-fledged lengthy tour.
“This is a select few cities, at this point,” Howard told the publication. “I think there may be five to seven shows. This is not something you can see in every city. It’s going to be very special. Don’t miss this one.”
The Tennessean pointed out that the Piano Man last played Nashville nine years ago with a 2014 show at Bridgestone Arena. The next year he took the stage at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee.
Nicks got her own chance to play Bonnaroo earlier in June – making history as the first woman to headline the fest.
The beloved singer/songwriter and Fleetwood Mac vocalist made the rounds at a number of festivals in 2022 including the inaugural Sound on Sound Festival in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. She’s spent the last few months playing amphitheaters throughout the U.S. on the second leg of her 2022 tour including gigs at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater and Tampa, Florida’s MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre.
In addition to continuing his monthly residency at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Joel has stayed busy this year playing a handful of stadium shows including Orlando, Florida’s Camping World Stadium, Notre Dame Stadium in Indiana and Houston’s Minute Maid Park.
Prior to the 2018-2019 “An Evening with Fleetwood Mac” tour, Nicks headlined the “24 Karat Gold Tour” from 2016-2017. She ranked No. 47 on Pollstar’s 2016 Year End Top 200 North American Tours Chart with 25.3 million grossed. That year, Joel ranked No. 11 on the North American Tours Chart with $68 million grossed and No. 14 on the Year End Top 100 Worldwide Tours Chart with $76.6 million grossed.
Most recently, Joel ranked No. 29 on 2021’s Top 100 Worldwide Tours Chart with a gross of $17.4 million as the live industry made its great return after the COVID shut down.
A Citi cardmember presale is ongoing now for the SoFi Stadium stop of “Two Icons One Night.” Tickets go on sale to the general public for all three shows Friday, Nov. 11 at 10 a.m. local time.
