Stevie Nicks supported the release of her third album Rock a Little with a world tour, which included shows in the U.S., Canada, and Australia. The tour started on April 11, 1986 in Houston, Texas and ended on October 6, 1986, in Sydney, Australia.

For the tour, Stevie performed all three singles from Rock a Little —”Talk to Me,” “I Can’t Wait,” and “Has Anyone Ever Written Anything for You” — and the album track “No Spoken Word.”

The August 20th Red Rocks Amphitheatre show in Morrison, CO was taped and subsequently released on video after the tour in 1987. The September 16th Cayuga County Fairgrounds show in Weedsport, NY was recorded and later rebroadcast for the Westwood One Radio Networks Superstar Concert Series.

Peter Frampton was the support act.
