But it wasn't all play and no work -- a few stars earnestly plugged upcoming projects. Stevie Nicks, who performed a song from her new album ''Trouble in Shangri-La'' with Sheryl Crow and received an award for songwriting, confirmed that she would be hitting the road with Fleetwood Mac later this year, but without founding member Christine McVie. ''Christine didn't want to do it, so we had to let her go,'' said Nicks. ''But she's delighted that we want to do this. If she were dead, we wouldn't do this, but she's having a fabulous life in London in her fabulous place overlooking the Thames and in her fabulous castle 40 miles outside London, so she's fine. Don't worry about her.''
