Stevie Nicks 24 Karat Gold Tour
Unearth your best fringe, leather and lace, belladonnas: The high priestess of rock ’n’ roll is on her way. After a long bout of touring with Fleetwood Mac, the powerhouse is striking out on her own. As Nicks told The New York Times when the tour was announced earlier this year: “I am the boss. My solo career is probably the reason Fleetwood Mac is still together in 2016, because I was always happy to leave Fleetwood Mac, and I was always happy to come back, too.”
This stop is part of the 24 Karat Gold Tour in support of her eighth solo album by the same name. Released in 2014, the album features songs written as far back as 1969 and a cover of a Vanessa Carlton song (random, yes, but it was a favorite of Nicks’ late mother).
For the faithful, it’s worth noting that Nicks may need you now more than ever; a vocal Hillary Clinton supporter, she had previously joked about calling up the Dixie Chicks and Billy Corgan for a rousing, in-your-face rendition of “Landslide” after Hilz defeated Trump. Sigh.
On a brighter note: Opening up on the 24 Karat Gold Tour is none other than the Pretenders, yet another legendary rock band fronted by a badass frontwoman. In other words, this is a potentially world-altering occasion for the young lady in your life who might only know the opening notes of “Edge of Seventeen” as the opening notes of “Bootylicious” by Destiny’s Child. 7 p.m., Tuesday, December 13. $16.25-$146.50.
