POP MUSIC After a successful run of shows with her odd-couple pal Rod Stewart, Stevie Nicks takes center stage. The rough grain of her voice concentrates the weird imperiousness of her music. "Stand Back," "Sorcerer," "Gold Dust Woman" — these are powerful invocations of a type of mystery we rarely get from artists who've put in as much time as Nicks has in the public eye. The Wiltern, 3790 Wilshire Blvd., L.A. 7 p.m. Thu. $38.50-$102.50. http://www.wiltern.com

Christine McVie   will reunite with her Fleetwood Mac bandmates and tour for the first time in 16 years for nearly three dozen shows across North America, beginning Sept. 30 in Minneapolis and reaching Southern California for two nights at the Forum in Inglewood on Nov. 28 and 29.   “ It was so comfortable being back onstage with them, as if no time had passed, and then we all started talking, and it feels like the time is right,” McVie said in a statement, referring to her guest spot with Stevie Nicks, Lindsay Buckingham, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood last year at London's O2 Arena.

Stevie Nicks was sauntering around a cavernous sound stage on the Sony lot in Culver City as her tiny dog, Sulamith, who was outfitted in a sweater, trailed behind her. It was Tuesday, only a few days before her Thursday concert at the Wiltern, which will celebrate the release of her first solo album in more than a decade, "In My Dreams," as well as her 63rd birthday. But it was dusty in the rehearsal space. And that upset her. "This is a massive old place, and for me, it's hard, because it's very, very dusty, and I'm allergic to dust," she said, opting to sit in a stiff office chair instead of on a couch for fear that it would incite her allergies.

Yes, I do believe it's been nearly 20 years since Stevie Nicks graced our presence with Fleetwood Mac ("Time Stands Still at Greek for Stevie Nicks and Fans," Aug. 27). I was at one show, and it did not appear to me that Nicks was in denial, as Steve Hochman says. We fans know Nicks as a dramatic individual. Her songs have meaning, all of them. She expresses them with great individualism and heart. No bad review from Hochman will ever change that. Nicks' old songs have special meaning to us--"Dreams," "Rhiannon," "Gold Dust Woman," "Landslide" and "I Need to Know"--as they do to her. Maybe next time Nicks is in town Hochman could try to see the tradition being performed.

As long rumored, Fleetwood Mac will hit the road in 2013 with a 34-date American tour that will see the band visit all the major U.S. markets, along with a stop at the Hollywood Bowl on May 25. The dates, which the band announced Monday, will feature co-founders Mick Fleetwood and John McVie along with longtime vocalist Stevie Nicks and singer-guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. Fleetwood Mac is touring for the first time since 2009. (Christine McVie no longer tours with the band.) In addition, according to Nicks, Fleetwood Mac has been working on new songs and is hoping to release at least two of them in anticipation of the tour.

Cee Lo Green won't be on "The Voice" when it returns for its sixth season next week. In a last-minute announcement, the singer revealed on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Wednesday that he was moving on from the hit singing competition show. "I'm going to miss 'The Voice'," Green said. "I'm not coming back at all. " Instead of being one of the show's judges, Green says he intends to put his time and energy into putting out a new album. "I haven't released an album in four years," he said.

For a notoriously perfectionist band like Fleetwood Mac, it shouldn't come as a big surprise that its live show leaves nothing to chance. Fleetwood Mac's 2013 tour, which wraps up with a final run of shows this week in California, is built around a song list that's gone virtually unchanged since the concert run began in April. "We're not one of those bands that throws the names of all their songs in a hat and pulls them out right before they go on stage," guitarist, songwriter and singer Lindsey Buckingham said last week from a tour stop in Charlotte, N.C. (Buckingham and the band play Staples Center Wednesday.)

This post has been corrected. Please see note at bottom for details. Fleetwood Mac is headed down the home stretch of its 2013 tour, with only three shows remaining: Wednesday at Staples Center in L.A., Friday in San Diego and Saturday in Sacramento. But 2013 represents a milestone of another kind for band members Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks: It's the 40th anniversary of “Buckingham Nicks, ” the only album they put out as a duo before joining up with Fleetwood Mac in 1975.

Only a band as famously twisted as Fleetwood Mac would follow an exhortation to “get this party started” with a song as bleakly imagined as “Dreams.” That's the indelible 1977 smash in which Stevie Nicks warns a capricious lover about hearing “the sound of your loneliness like a heartbeat,” and Saturday night at the Hollywood Bowl, Fleetwood Mac performed it near the beginning of a sold-out concert that Nicks said represented the group's happy...

The four songs on the new Fleetwood Mac EP -- which the legendary pop-rock outfit put up for sale on iTunes on Tuesday morning with little advance warning -- arrive steeped in echoes of the past, in at least one case quite literally: "Without You," a strummy acoustic number overlaid with harmony vocals by Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, reportedly dates back to sessions for the two singers' 1973 album as a long-haired vocal duo deeply opposed...

AUSTIN, Texas -- By many accounts the South by Southwest music festival is about discovering new talent: the fresh-faced indie-pop outfit, for instance, or the precocious laptop wizard just stepping beyond the walls of his bedroom. Dave Grohl doesn't share that view. On Thursday night, hours after delivering SXSW's keynote speech at the Austin Convention Center, Grohl and a handful of his famous friends took over Stubb's for what he described as the final performance by the Sound City Players.

Some of the most exciting news to come out of a conversation with Stevie Nicks on Monday was when she discussed a recent studio session with fellow Fleetwood Mac member and longtime collaborator Lindsey Buckingham. The two will join Mick Fleetwood and John McVie to resurrect Fleetwood Mac for a 2013 tour, but they have a history that extends long before they joined Mac in 1975.  The pair recorded one gorgeous, self-titled record in 1973 as Buckingham Nicks, and it was this work that prompted Fleetwood, McVie and then-keyboardist Christine McVie to ask them to join Fleetwood Mac. The rest is (a tangled, romantically complicated)

What's gotten into Stevie Nicks? On Saturday at the sold-out Greek Theatre, she sang like a woman possessed. None of the area performances she's given over the years--both solo and with Fleetwood Mac--approached the high quality of this one. Attending a Nicks' show has always been a gamble. Notoriously temperamental, she could be awful, her voice cracking and taking on an annoyingly nasal, bleating quality.
