The grande dame of, rock’n’roll, Ste­vie Nicks has ex­tended her 24 Karat Gold tour to Aus­tralia – and she is bring­ing Chrissie Hynde.

Round­house En­ter­tain­ment in con­junc­tion with Live Na­tion have an­nounced the singer­song­writer will per­form three shows for A Day on the Green, in­clud­ing Sir­romet Wines, Mt Cot­ton on Novem­ber 12. The wo­man who gave rock’n’roll one of its most pow­er­ful fe­male voices has sim­ply cap­ti­vated hun­dreds of thou­sands of fans in Amer­ica on the joint tour with The Pre­tenders.

The mu­tual ad­mi­ra­tion so­ci­ety be­tween th­ese two acclaimed women of rock cul­mi­nates with the pair singing Stop Drag­ging My Heart Around dur­ing each show.

They will per­form at a mix of winer­ies for Day On The Green, out­door con­certs and are­nas start­ing in Perth on Novem­ber 4.

The Fleet­wood Mac front­woman fo­cuses on her reper­toire but fans will be over­joyed to see Mac classics in­clud­ing Rhi­an­non.

In re­cent years she has be­come the rock’n’roll god­mother to fe­male artists in­clud­ing Haim and Lana Del Rey.

Adding The Pre­tenders to the bill makes this one of the big­gest su­per­star tours to hit Aus­tralian stages this year.

Nicks’ 24 Karat Gold setlist has been la­belled “an eclec­tic mix of songs from her vast ca­reer vault,” with Nicks her­self call­ing it “the gothic trunk of lost songs”.

Some of th­ese in­clude Gold and Braid, Belle Fleur, Wild Heart, Bella Donna, New Orleans, Starshine, Moon­light (A Vam­pire’s Dream), If You Were My Love, and the Buck­ing­ham-Nicks-era track Cry­ing in the Night.

The re­main­der of the set will con­sist of solo and Fleet­wood Mac classics.
