RECAP: Auckland – Spark Arena (Night 2)

On Tuesday, Stevie performed again in Auckland, closing out her two-night engagement at Spark Arena.

At 69, Stevie continues to attract new audiences and trend highly on social media, crossing multiple generations of music fans. She remains a fierce advocate and cheerleader for today’s female singer-songwriters — such as Haim, Lana Del Rey, Adele, and the New Zealand-born Lorde, to name a few — encouraging them to stick with their dreams and stay true to their craft.

Before “Landslide,” Stevie shared some kind words for Lorde, the Kiwi singer-songwriter. “I actually don’t know her, and I wish she was here,” she said from the stage, as captured in a fan video. “I was hoping I would get to cross paths with her. I think she’s so very talented. If she had been my age, and our age, she probably would have been the third girl in Fleetwood Mac.”

Early this morning, Lorde expressed her gratitude, tweeting “I wish I could be in New Zealand to hug mother witch Stevie.”

After an unprecedented 66 shows, the 24 Karat Gold Tour ends in Dunedin on Friday — wrapping up the longest and most successful tour of Stevie’s 36-year solo career. Over a period of 13 months, Stevie sold out arena and festival shows in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand — ranking consistently among the Top 20 Global Concert Tours.

  • REVIEW: Fleetwood Mac at Rod Laver Arena Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    Given the well-documented dramas they’ve endured over the decades, you assumed by now Fleetwood Mac were pretty much invincible. However reuniting that classic Rumours-era line-up back for the 2014/2015 tour proved they had one more soap opera-style twist up their billowing sleeves. So in 2019, it’s either this Lindsey Buckingham-free version of Fleetwood Mac or […]

    FLEETWOOD MAC ★★★★ Rod Laver Arena, until September 9 Eighteen months ago, it seemed positively absurd that someone like Neil Finn – a well known musician and songwriter in his own right who had by no means put his feet up – could, or even would, join a band like Fleetwood Mac. Perhaps it still […]
  • Another Rumours deluxe set coming this fall Friday, August 23, 2019

  • Fleetwood Mac: Still going their own way Thursday, August 22, 2019
    Since it began as a British rock band in 1967, Fleetwood Mac has undergone 19 iterations while steadily adding Americans and, most recently, a New Zealander to its line-up. Its only remaining founding member is drummer Mick Fleetwood, who recently described each version of the group as “incredibly different musical episodes in this Shakespearean play […]
  • Seeing Fleetwood Mac in 2019 is a strange experience — but they’ve always been a strange band Wednesday, August 21, 2019
    If their songs weren’t so strong, endurance may be Fleetwood Mac’s greatest legacy Thirty minutes into Fleetwood Mac’s set at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre this week, Stevie Nicks admitted that she didn’t realise “Black Magic Woman” was a Fleetwood Mac song until well after she’d joined the band. It’s an astounding admission. Sure, the song […]
