Raspy-voiced rock singer Stevie Nicks hasn't been a regular visitor to Hampton Roads over the years, but she has made a bewitching appearance from time to time, stretching all the way back to the 1970s when Fleetwood Mac played Hampton Coliseum.
According to the Daily Press archive, Nicks performed at the Ted Constant Center in Norfolk back in 2007 and showed up in Portsmouth the year before as a guest of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. Before that, she performed in Virginia Beach in 2001.
That's where she'll return later this year. The rock 'n' roll gypsy will play Farm Bureau amphitheater on Saturday July 14, concert promoters announced Monday. Tickets -- priced $40 to $149.50 from Ticketmaster -- go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, April 6.
Here's the media release about the Virginia Beach show.
