The Heart and Soul Tour 2011

This is a good day for baby boomers.  I saw on "Ellen" this morning that 2 of my favorite performers have joined forces for the HEART AND SOUL TOUR  beginning in March.   Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks.  Was it just me or did Stevie seem a little "out of it"? 
I have seen Rod on stage 3 times but never Stevie Nicks.  I was a big Fleetwood Mac fan but never got the chance to seem them live.  I love the ethereal Stevie Nicks singing  "Rhiannon" and "Landslide".  With her mane of hair, long, flowing scarves, and long skirts, she looked other worldly.  One of my favorite CDs to sing to in the car, is "The Dance". Alone, in my car, I can belt it out.  I am channeling Stevie!!

You have to admit that it is hard to put yourself up next to that skinny, cocky ole Brit that can still ask, "Do ya Think I'm Sexy?"   I love that he is adapting to his age.  We don't want to see the Rod in pink spandex of his youth.  ( And ours! ) OK, may a little....

The husband and I saw Rod, for the first time, in the early 1980's.  From the minute he came on stage ( yes he was in hot pink) everyone was on their feet and literally, standing on their seats and never sat down the rest of the show. I could hardly speak afterward from the yelling.  ( I called it singing.)

 The new Rod performs in a beautifully tailored suit and sings the old standards now.  I enjoy both sides of his talent.  Seeing him, this morning, belting out "Hot Legs" shows he's still got it... and I still love it.

I just had to add this with Joss Stone singing Hot Legs with our guy Rod.  It is too much fun.  Enjoy.

That sounds like a cool concert. I don't think I can do the pink tights though although Prince can sport his platforms for me anytime! :)

Thanks for the visit. Some artists that have the "it" never lose it. Prince is one of them. So is Tina Turner. I saw her this am on TV from a past concert in London. Wow! I can no way move like that.
