Stevie Nicks Complains About Coronavirus
“This pandemic is more than just a pandemic for me. This is stealing what I consider to be my last youthful years,” said Nicks.
“I don’t have just 10 years to hang around and wait for this thing to go away. I have places to go, people to sing for, another album to make. With every day that goes by, it’s like taking this time away from me. That I think is the hardest thing for me.”
The 72-year-old “Landslide” singer’s younger friends fortified her perspective.
“I have a lot of friends that are 60 and they’re going, ‘Oh I’m so old, I’m 60.’ I’m like, ‘You know what, the violins of the world are playing for you. You’re going to really appreciate 60 when you turn 72,’” she added, according to the New York Post.

“I don’t feel like the whole world is really getting behind getting this to go away. I feel like people are just thinking it really is just magically going away,” Nicks explained.
“All it takes is a few people that don’t wear a mask to spread. Just let one person catch it from you and there it goes — it’s like the never-ending story. That worries me because I’m going, ‘Will it really be gone by the end of 2021?’ ‘Will it be safe next year for us to walk into Madison Square Garden?’ I don’t know that it will.”
Stevie Nicks Releasing New Concert Movie
Since she can’t do anything about coronavirus, the Fleetwood Mac vocalist is hoping to satisfy the fans who had planned to see her perform this year with the new concert movie “Stevie Nicks 24 Karat Gold The Concert.”
The film was recorded over the course of two nights of her 2016-17 “24 Karat Gold” tour, and it will be shown at select theaters and drive-ins on October 21 and 25.
After that, a CD and digital album of the concert will be available on October 30.
“As we started to understand that this COVID thing was not a joke, I started going to myself, ‘Well, you know what? This may be the closest to going to a big, big concert that’s actually not from 1977 that is new,’” Nicks said. “It’s brand new and it’s fantastic.”
So Many Of Us Can Relate
Many of us can relate to how Stevie Nicks is feeling. This pandemic is stealing time from all of us. And the older you are, the more you feel that clock ticking.
All we can do is pray that this devastating virus is gone by next year, so that we can all resume our lives.
In the meantime, at least we’ll have “Stevie Nicks 24 Karat Gold The Concert” to look forward to.
