Like a fine wine the venerated singer just gets better with age, especially when she performs the classic hits with fellow great Chrissie Hynde
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.
Tickets for A Day on the Green go on sale tomorrow. See ticketmaster.com.au
