From all accounts, legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Stevie Nicks’ Junevisit to Ruoff Music Center outside Indianapolis was one of the best shows to stop at the venue this year. Because of that, it is great to hear she has announced the second leg of her 2022 tour, adding 12 dates to her run this fall, three of which will be with driving distance. 

The short trek includes two sets at the Ravinia Festival, in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park, Sept. 8-10 and a stop at Pine Knob near Detroit on Sept. 13. 

This marks the 50th show announced at Pine Knob Music Theatre during its 50th Anniversary season. Singer-songwriter Vanessa Carlton will act as support for the Pine Knob show. 

“Here we go! I’m so excited to be back on the road and can’t wait to see everyone,” Nicks posted on Instagram following the announcement. 

Buckingham set for Elkhart

While we are mentioning Fleetwood Mac members, or, in this case, a former Fleetwood Mac member, Lindsey Buckingham has just been booked to play The Lerner Theatre in Elkhart on Nov. 4. 

Like Nicks, as a member of Fleetwood Mac, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 and is considered by many to be one of the greatest guitarists of all-time. 

In addition to his Fleetwood Mac material, Buckingham has released seven studio albums as a solo artist, all of which feature those same trademark melodic hooks, multilayered vocals, and memorable guitar work. His latest album, simply titled Lindsey Buckingham, was released last year and he will play songs from that album, as well as some you are more likely to know from his Fleetwood Mac days and his earlier solo work, when he hits the stage in the RV Capitol of the world.

Jetpacks invading States

Scottish rock trio We Were Promised Jetpacks have announced a fall tour that stops in 19 cities, including a local regional shows. 

The post-punk group is gaining traction in the U.S., already having played 40 shows here, but they are looking for more. 

“Can’t wait to come rock out in a bunch of places we missed earlier this year!” guitarist/singer Adam Thompson said in a statement ahead of the tour. 

The band is continuing to support their fifth studio album, Enjoy the View, which was released in September. 

Check them out and see why people are taking notice when the tour kicks off Oct. 7 at Skully’s in Columbus, Ohio, or the following night at Pyramid Scheme in Grand Rapids.

Hatebreed celebrates album

Hatebreed’s seminal classic Perseverance turned 20 years old this year.  Of course, the Grammy-nominated crew is going on the road to celebrate it. 

“I can’t believe it’s been 20 years since the Perseverance album hit,” singer Jamey Jasta said in a press release about the tour. “We’re overdue for a headline tour, so these shows will be ones for the ages.” 

The 20 Years of Perseverance Tour kicks off Oct. 27 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and heads to Cleveland for an Oct. 30 show at the Agora Theatre. 

Gatecreeper, Bodysnatcher, and Dying Wish will present their soothing sounds as opening acts on that show. 

You can also check out Hatebreed as part of the Anthrax and Black Label Society tour when it stops by The Andrew J. Brady Music Center in Cincinnati on Aug. 15 or The Fillmore in Detroit on Aug. 20.
