Better than: Unicorn sightings.
Stevie Nicks spent quite a few moments of Saturday night's performance at the Fillmore marveling that she was onstage at the Fillmore, the place where she once attended concerts by the likes of the Byrds and Jimi Hendrix and dreamed about her own possibilities.
“If you wish on the stars,” said Nicks, who attended Menlo-Atherton High and San Jose State, “you might get a satellite!”
Nicks left no doubt that she appreciated her time there as much as the approximately 1,500 fans that had managed to get inside. And she didn't keep anyone waiting to hear a classic, starting off with “Stand Back” and weaving a set of what she dubbed “all the wonderful old things and some new songs that deserve to be played.”
