Stevie Nicks comes in at No. 4. She was able to captivate Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale thanks to her lilting, timeless vocals, and her sincere storytelling ability, where she made the audience as if they were her children. All the fans had to do was "Stand Back" and enjoy Stevie Nicks in her element.

At No. 3 was Nancy Wilson (of Heart) and Liv Warfield's show with Roadcase Royale at Gramercy Theatre in New York City. All hail the "Guitar Queen of Rock" (Nancy Wilson) with the new Queen of R&B/Soul (Warfield).

When all is said and done, Barbra Streisand, comes in at No. 1 thanks to her spell-binding show on Long Island. Her Nassau Coliseum headlining concert was sheer bliss. Ms. Streisand proved to be the "Queen of Traditional Pop Music." One could only say "Hello, Gorgeous."
Barbra Streisand.
