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.
