Stevie Nicks performs Edge Of Seventeen on The Tonight Show

Stevie Nicks performed her 1981 classic, “Edge Of Seventeen”, on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday.

The rocker teamed up with The Roots and long time guitarist Waddy Wachtel for the track; earlier in the program, Fallon – as Tom Petty – joined Nicks for a live re-creation of her classic 1981 video for "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" (see video here).

“Edge Of Seventeen” was the third single from Nicks’ 1981 solo debut, “Bella Donna.” Written by the singer to express the grief resulting from the death of her uncle Jonathan and the murder of John Lennon during the same week of December 1980, the song peaked at No. 11 on the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

Nicks and Fleetwood Mac recently announced the return of Christine McVie to the band for a North American tour this fall.

The On With The Show Tour sees the reunion of the group’s hugely successful mid-1970s lineup, which cranked out hit albums like 1975’s self-titled release, 1977’s “Rumours” and 1979’s “Tusk.”

Shows begin September 30 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
