01-17 ax sold out stevie nicks

The American Express golf tournament is striking all the right cords with fans. Friday and Saturday night are sell-outs, thanks to concerts from Stevie Nicks followed by Luke Bryan.

It was a landslide performance by Nicks, a rock and roll hall of famer, Friday night.

"She's awesome. Oh my gosh, she's incredible," said Carmen Romoff. "We love all her songs. It's all the songs you remember, all the songs you know by heart."

"This is high school. I mean, she's iconic," said Patti Stovall.

Nicks's career spans more than 50 years — her unforgettable voice reverberating across generations.

"She definitely has a very old soul, spirit and definitely her voice is so raspy," said Astrid Ashworth. "She still has what she had from back 30 years ago. It's amazing to me."

Fans said she sounds exactly the same as they remember her from decades ago.

"Seeing Stevie Nicks brings me back to high school days in the seventies," said Shelley Salay. "I love her music. I feel like I'm back in high school right now."

The tournament is pleasing golf and entertainment fans alike.

"I'm experiencing great golf; I'm experiencing great music," said Buzz Kiley.

Some of the world's biggest names in golf hit up the course, and the weather was up to par.

"There's been very little wind and no rain, no dust, no sand," Kiley said.

Fans said they are looking forward to a sold out Luke Bryan concert Saturday.

"I'm beyond excited — I'm excited for tonight, I'm excited for tomorrow," Ashworth said. "I'm definitely going to be here the whole night tonight and the whole night tomorrow night."

Viewers reported standstill traffic both in and out of the event.
