Stevie Nicks strikes ‘Gold’ with latest tour

Stevie Nicks, 24 Karat Gold Tour, banner

Stevie Nicks’ first solo tour in four years — the 24 Karat Gold Tour — impacts the latest Hot Tours tally (see list, below), as the trek’s final show from its fall 2016 run ranks at No. 3 on the tally. The show, held on Dec. 18 at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., grossed $1.3 million from a sell-out crowd of 14,210.

The new tour supports Nicks’ most recent solo album, 24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault, which was released in September 2014. The set debuted and peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 chart, marking Nicks’ sixth solo top 10-charting effort.

The 24 Karat Gold Tour — with The Pretenders on board as the opening act — also topped $1 million in sales at Madison Square Garden in New York City with a sold-out performance on Dec. 1. Revenue from that concert reached $1.5 million with a sold ticket count of 15,167. Final box-office figures have not yet been reported from the entire fall run, but estimated grosses from the Live Nation-produced tour fall in the $25 million range based on box office data from 10 shows reported to Boxscore during the fall.

The 24 Karat Gold Tour launched Oct. 25 in Phoenix and will pick back up after a winter break on Feb. 23 in Reno, Nevada. The tour will continue through April. The Pretenders will remain with the tour through the April finale.

The tour is Nicks’ first solo outing since her In Your Dreams Tour wrapped in September 2012. The following spring, she headed out on the road with her band Fleetwood Mac for the Fleetwood Mac Live tour from April through December 2013. It was followed by another Mac tour, the On With the Show tour (with a returning Christine McVie), from September 2014 through November 2015.
