24 Karat Gold Tour, Melbourne, Rod Laver Arena, The Pretenders

RECAP: Melbourne – Rod Laver Arena

Stevie Nicks performed at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on Thursday night — the 63rd show of the 24 Karat Gold Tour. After “Gold and Braid,” Stevie acknowledged Australia’s recent survey results in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage. Projected with the “Melbourne” greeting on the large overhead screen were images of two gold rings to celebrate the historic decision.

The Australian leg of the tour wraps up this Saturday in the Yarra Valley.

Much love and thanks to Carly Findlay, DrBecSzabo, Ms Clooney, Rod Laver Arena, and Mark Stewart for sharing these pictures from the show!

Review

Stevie Nicks is a rockstar storyteller on tour with The Pretenders (Herald Sun)

“Nicks details how important her solo career outside Fleetwood Mac has been, but how she made a pact to return to the band whenever they needed her. ‘You can have it all,’ she says of her dual careers.”

  • 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 Frankenband a beautiful monster Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    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 […]
