Stevie Nicks, the iconic singer and songwriter, took a moment to remember the anniversary of 9/11 with a heartfelt message. It’s been 22 years since the tragic events of that fateful day, and Stevie wanted to share her thoughts and reflections.
On the morning of September 11, 2001, Stevie Nicks was in the midst of a plane journey from Toronto to New York when the unthinkable happened—the terrorist attacks unfolded.
This devastating event had a profound impact not only on America but on the entire world.
Two New York shows, part of the Trouble in Shangri-La Tour, were scheduled for Stevie, but they had to be canceled due to the tragic circumstances. It was a time of immense shock and sorrow for everyone.
Stevie’s parents offered her advice during this difficult moment.
They urged her not to return home but to continue with her tour, telling her:
“Don’t you dare come home. Your music is how you can help.”
These words carried a powerful message—the healing power of music during times of adversity.
Despite the heaviness of the situation, Stevie persevered.
A few days later, on September 15, she resumed her tour in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Her decision to carry on with her music was not only an act of resilience but also a way to provide solace and comfort through her songs.
In her message, Stevie Nicks paid tribute to the first responders, the victims, and the survivors of 9/11. She expressed her deep respect and admiration for the brave men and women who responded to the tragedy on that fateful day. Their acts of courage and selflessness will always be remembered.
Stevie also extended her gratitude to the children of these heroes, those who have chosen to follow in their parents’ footsteps by becoming first responders themselves. Their dedication and commitment to carrying on the legacy of their loved ones is truly admirable.
“I always, every year, want to honor the brave men and women who responded that awful day~the ones who survived and the ones who did not. And I want to honor their children who honor them by following in their footsteps ~ you are always welcome at my shows~”
In closing, Stevie Nicks emphasized her annual tradition of honoring those affected by 9/11. She expressed her ongoing support for the survivors and the families of the victims, letting them know that they are always welcome at her shows.
