Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks Are Coming to BankAtlantic: Mixtape Time!

​Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks are going on the road again. Their summer Heart and Soul tour will find its way to Fort Lauderdale, gracing us with their royal rock presence. Apparently, their 2011 spring tour went so well, they thought they'd add a few towns to the list and we're psyched to be on it. 

It's nice to think of Stevie Nicks as the Diane Keaton of the musical stage. Maybe it's the hats. Rod would make an interesting Woody Allen? Both Stewart and Nicks are vibrant, relatively still attractive, and showy enough to make the young people look up and say, "I want hair like that" or "where'd they get those scarves?" They're a power couple, a dream team, a dynamic duo. 

In honor of their upcoming appearance in Broward, we put together a mini-mixtape of the two onstage together. 

"Dreams" is the kind of song you want to fall asleep crying to. But at the concert, try to keep your chin up and face to the stage. 

Not to be cruel, but aren't they kind of the perfect pair to be singing "Leather and Lace?" 

Rod gives us all reason to believe that careers can last. 

"Young Turks" is an enduring dance classic. Stevie does it justice. 

You can feel it, the passion between these two golden oldies. Now wait until August when you can see it live. 

Tickets go on sale on March 17 at 10 a.m. Visit or call 800-745-3000. The show takes place at BankAtlantic on August 4.
