The joint “24 Karat Gold Tour” featuring headliner Stevie Nicks and opening act Pretenders got off to a successful start on October 25 in Phoenix, Arizona. The classic rock legends will perform throughout North America this fall with shows scheduled in New York City, Los Angeles, Toronto, Vancouver, Chicago, Philadelphia, Atlanta and more.  A full list of tour dates is below. The new Pretenders album, Alone, their first in eight years, can be ordered here.

In its review of opening night, the Arizona Republic wrote that Nicks said from the stage, “The great thing is that I get to sing all the songs. And then I thought about it and I went, ‘And the not great thing is that I get to sing all of the songs.’ It’s crazy. After singing only one-third of three-thirds for three years.”

Nicks has had six top 10 albums and eight Grammy nominations. Her 2014 album 24 Karat Gold – Songs From The Vault debuted at #7 on Billboard‘s Top 200 Charts. (Album is available here.) A member of Fleetwood Mac, Nicks recently performed 122 sold-out shows around the world during 2014-2015. Collectively as a solo artist and Fleetwood Mac band member, Nicks has sold over 140 million albums and won several Grammys.

Pretenders cross the bridge between punk, new wave and Top 40 pop music with hits like “Brass in Pocket (I’m Special),” “Back on the Chain Gang” and “Don’t Get Me Wrong.” The band has sold over 25 million albums and is led by founder Chrissie Hynde. (A best-of is available here.)
