24 Karat Gold Tour, Melbourne, Rod Laver Arena, The Pretenders
(Dr Bec Szabo)

RECAP: Melbourne – Rod Laver Arena

Stevie Nicks performed at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on Thursday night — the 63rd show of the 24 Karat Gold Tour. After “Gold and Braid,” Stevie acknowledged Australia’s recent survey results in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage. Projected with the “Melbourne” greeting on the large overhead screen were images of two gold rings to celebrate the historic decision.

The Australian leg of the tour wraps up this Saturday in the Yarra Valley.

Much love and thanks to Carly Findlay, DrBecSzabo, Ms Clooney, Rod Laver Arena, and Mark Stewart for sharing these pictures from the show!
