The Latest on the 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony (all times local):
Stevie Nicks, the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, kicked off the 2019 ceremony with a superb performance of her 1983 solo hit, “Stand Back.”
Nicks was originally inducted into the Hall in 1998 with Fleetwood Mac. After the performance she said she was wearing “the original ‘Stand Back’ cape.”
“Not one thread’s out of place,” she said.
Nicks was joined by Don Henley onstage for “Leather and Lace,” while former One Direction member Harry Styles — who inducted Nicks on Friday night — strummed his guitar as they both sang “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.”
“So tonight, standing in for Tom Petty is Mr. Harry Styles,” Nicks said.
She closed her performance with “Edge of Seventeen.”
Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks and a quintet of British bands are being honored with induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on Friday at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
The rock bands — Def Leppard, Radiohead, the Cure, Roxy Music and the Zombies — represent a variety of styles and eras.
Jackson will join her brother Michael and the rest of the Jackson 5 as rock hall members. Singer Janelle Monae is lined to induct Jackson, whose hits include “What Have You Done For Me Lately,” ”All For You” and “That’s the Way Love Goes.”
Nicks is already in the hall as a member of Fleetwood Mac, but she joins a more exclusive club of double inductees in being saluted for solo work like “Edge of Seventeen” and “Stand Back.”
