Rock gypsy Stevie Nicks is taking her “Gold Dust” solo tour downunder in February, with some special collaborations planned during the two-and-a-half-week trek.

Nicks will kick things off February 18 at Melbourne, Australia’s Rod Laver Arena, where she’ll perform with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in a concert that will be filmed for DVD. Next, she’ll do the first of several dates sharing the bill with popular Aussie rocker John Farnham. The two singers will perform in Brisbane, Perth and three New Zealand venues.

In addition, Vanessa Carlton is on board as a special guest for all shows.

Carlton also toured with Nicks this summer on a five-week North American tour.

Nicks will be accompanied on all dates by her nine-piece band, led by guitarist Waddy Wachtel. Her sets will feature a mix of her hits with Fleetwood Mac and tunes from her lengthy solo career.

Nicks last visited Australia on Fleetwood Mac’s 2004 reunion tour. Her most recent solo album, Trouble In Shangri-La, was released in 2001.

Stevie Says...
If I'm not vulnerable, I won't ever wrote any more songs about vulnerability, and then what am I doing? I need to help people. I need make people believe that it's all right to be vulnerable and to be a little naive, and to be still sweet and kind and good.
