24 Karat Gold Tour

Stevie Nicks supported the release of her eighth solo album 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault with a North American tour. Planned to be a 27-city tour of the U.S. and Canada, the tour began in Phoenix, Arizona, on October 25, 2016 and ended in Los Angeles, California, on December 18, 2016. But due to strong ticket sales in major markets — including sellouts at Madison Square Garden in New York on December 1 and The Forum in Los Angeles on December 18 — Stevie added 20 additional dates in the new year, focused on the secondary concert market. Leg 2 of the tour kicked off in Reno, Nevada, on February 23, 2017 and ended on April 6, 2017 in Long Island, New York.

Deep Cuts

For this tour, Stevie refreshed her concert set list, performing an eclectic mix of songs from her vast career catalog. Half of the set list was comprised of material from what Stevie dubbed, “the gothic trunk of lost songs.” These deeper cuts were “Gold and Braid,” “Belle Fleur,” “Wild Heart,” “Bella Donna,” “New Orleans,” “Starshine,” “Moonlight (A Vampire’s Dream),” “If You Were My Love,” and the Buckingham-Nicks-era track “Crying in the Night.” The remaining songs in the set consisted of classics from her solo and Fleetwood Mac catalog, most of which were performed toward the end of the shows (“Stand Back,” “Gold Dust Woman,” “Edge of Seventeen, “Rhiannon,” and “Landslide.”)

As the tour progressed, Stevie told long stories behind these songs, to the joy — or frustration — of fans, depending on their desired concert experience. She was determined not to perform “the same show you’ve probably seen a million times.”

The Pretenders

Accompanying Stevie on the tour was fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee The Pretenders, led by the venerable Chrissie Hynde, who opened the shows. The Pretenders performed songs from an-equally-impressive career catalog — such as “Back on the Chain Gang,” “Don’t Get Me Wrong,” and “I’ll Stand By You.” Chrissie joined Stevie onstage later in the show for the hit duet “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” from Stevie’s first solo album Bella Donna (1981). To see the set list that The Pretenders performed at each of these shows, click here.

The tour was going smoothly for The Pretenders until they reached Florida, where at some point Chrissie acquired a respiratory infection, which prevented her from singing. The Pretenders ended up canceling three performances (Jacksonville, FL; Charlotteville, VA; and Baltimore, MD). Chrissie later apologized for the cancellations, providing an explanation on her Facebook page.


On March 29 and March 31, camera crews filmed footage of the Indianapolis, Indianapolis and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania shows, respectively, for PBS Soundstage. (Presumably, the shows will be edited for a future release.)

Future Plans

The 24 Karat Gold Tour is tentatively slated to resume in Australia and New Zealand at the end of the year. At the end of Leg 1 (at the Inglewood show), Stevie told the audience that she might be extending the tour to Australia, but didn’t know for sure. She kept those hopes alive at the end of Leg 2 (at the Uniondale show), telling the crowd that Australia tour may kick off in the fall.

On August 9, 2017, Stevie officially announced through her website that she would be touring Australia and New Zealand in November.
