Stevie Nicks joined Don Henley onstage for his 70th birthday bash concert at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas on Saturday night. Stevie’s appearance was announced several months ago, but it was marketed as a surprise to ticket holders.

Stevie and Don performed their smash hit duet “Leather and Lace” from Stevie’s 1981 solo album debut Bella Donna. Stevie then played the tambourine for the following song, Don’s hit single “Boys of Summer” from his 1984 album Building the Perfect Beast.

Stevie returned to the stage at the end of the show, playing the tambourine for “All She Wants to Do Is Dance,” (another hit single from Building the Perfect Beast ) and remained onstage for the set closer, The Beatles’ cover “Birthday.”

Other guests appearing at the show were Patty Smyth and Eagles members Timothy B. Schmit and Joe Walsh.
