Stevie Nicks, a multi-platinum selling artist – dubbed “the reigning queen of rock and roll” by Rolling Stone Magazine – has had six Top Ten albums and eight Grammy nominations. Her timeless classics include the iconic Nicks penned Landslide, Gold Dust Woman, Rhiannon, Edge of 17, Gypsy and scores of others.
Her 2014 album 24 Karat Gold – Songs From The Vault debuted at No. 7 on Billboard’s Top 200 Charts. As a member of Fleetwood Mac, Nicks most recently performed 122 sold-out shows around the world during 2014-2015. Nicks has just completed a sold out solo tour of the US with Pretenders which was met with rave reviews (see below).
As a solo artist and a Fleetwood Mac member, Nicks has sold more than 140 million albums and won several Grammys.
“It’s been thrilling to get on stage each night and sing some of my early gems from early in my career along with getting the chance to sing the material from my last two albums, In Your Dreams and 24 Karat Gold – Songs From The Vault”, says Nicks.
Pretenders cross the bridge between punk, new wave and Top 40 pop music with unparalleled style, and with hit songs like Brass In Pocket, I’ll Stand By You, Back On The Chain Gang and Don’t Get Me Wrong.
The band has sold in excess of 25 million albums and founder and leader Chrissie Hynde is one of contemporary music’s greatest songwriters. Chrissie most recently released the album Stockholm and a 2015 memoir, Reckless: My Life As a Pretender, hailed by the New York Times upon its release as “honest and distinctive… first and foremost, a love letter to rock and roll.”
