Stevie Nicks may have been plagued by stage fright during her career but that hasn’t stopped her becoming one of the most formidable live rock acts you can see today. Now, with lockdown seemingly ruling out any more live shows for a while, Nicks is reminiscing about touring and has announced a new concert film and live album 24 Karat Gold The Concert.
The new film will be screened at cinemas, some drive-ins and exhibition spaces around the world for just two nights on October 21st and October 25th. It captures Nicks at her peak, performing in Indianapolis and Pittsburgh back in 2017. It’s a set full of favourites from both her solo canon and Fleetwood Mac’s.
As well as the concert film, there will also be a new live album Live in Concert: The 24 Karat Gold Tour which will have 17 tracks from the show on record and ready to be played at will. That includes some real heavy hitters such as ‘Rhiannon’, ‘Landslide’, ‘Edge of Seventeen’ and many, many more. But there are also some rarely heard gems too including the first-ever live recording of ‘Crying in the Night’.
The ’24 Karat Gold Tour’ was my all-time favourite tour,” the double hall-of-famer said in a statement. “I not only got to sing my songs but I was able to tell their stories for the first time. I love having the opportunity to share this concert with my fans. From me to you – 24 Karat Gold.”
You can find tickets for the 24 Karat Gold The Concert screening here. But, in the meantime, listen to the first release from the record, which arrives on October 30th via BMG, Nicks’ perfect performance of ‘Gypsy’.
