Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks

Target Audience: Fans of late 1970s/early 1980s AOR rock. The two singers may not seem to have much in common, but both started as the singers of big rock bands of the 1970s. Both quickly launched hugely successful solo careers, and then walked away from their groups. 

Missing Members: This is a rare case of two solo acts sharing the stage this summer, so this obviously doesn't apply. Mick Fleetwood has voiced frustration with Stevie Nicks for prioritizing her solo career in recent years, and the Faces also yearn for a reunion with Rod. But for now they're out on their own. 

Highlight: Stevie tends to come out early in Rod's set for "Young Turks" and "Leather and Lace," but then Rod tends to close out his show with "Do You Think I'm Sexy?"
