Australian tour kicks off in Perth

Stevie Nicks kicked off the Australian leg of her 24 Karat Gold Tour in Perth on Thursday night. Stevie sold out her opening show at Perth Arena, performing before 15,000 fans. Stevie recently told WA Today that the tour has been the most successful one of her solo career.

It was an emotional night for Stevie, with the Perth gig being the first full-length show of the 24 Karat Gold tour since Tom Petty’s death on October 2.

“You got me through this so I feel I can go on and finish (the tour),” she told the crowd. “So I thank you, Tom Petty thanks you.”

During “Edge of Seventeen,” Stevie paid homage to Tom, her close friend and musical mentor, adding two photos of them performing onstage through the years to the large projection screen, alongside images of Prince.

Reviews

Stevie Nicks gives 24 carat performance (Australian Associated Press/SBS)

“Stevie Nicks told a packed crowd at Perth Arena she was “the crazy aunt they had to put up with,” as she kicked off the Australian leg of her solo tour. The 69-year-old Fleetwood Mac frontwoman toured Australia with the band just two years ago, with this solo tour coming off the back of her 2014 album 24 Karat Gold.”

“Nicks emerged to perform the solo songs from her ‘dark trunk’ in a voice untarnished by age. For almost each tune, she provided an airy, long-winded, ultimately enchanting tale of origin, detailing failed relationships and fortuitous collaborations with Prince and Tom Petty. She ended by thanking Perth for helping her through the first show since the passing of her dear friend Tom.”
