The Bay Area can expect to be graced by a performance from Fleetwood Mac siren Stevie Nicks this spring. As part of a 14-day national tour, the legendary singer-songwriter will play at the Chase Center in San Francisco on March 23, followed by a second show in Northern California on March 26 at Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center.

Nicks, who joined Fleetwood Mac in 1974 and left in 1990, began releasing solo albums in the 1980s and has enjoyed a vibrant career since splitting from her former bandmates. Aside from Fleetwood Mac hits like “Dreams” (which enjoyed a renaissance thanks to a viral TikTok video) and “Landslide” (immortalized on countless covers, most notably by The Chicks), Nick’s solo discography includes hits like “Stand Back” . and “Edge of Seventeen,” which was recently remixed on Miley Cyrus’ 2020 album Plastic Hearts. Nick’s most recent album was Live in Concert: The 24 Karat Gold Tour, which featured 17 songs compiled from her 2016-2017 international tour.
Nicks last performed in the Bay Area at Mountain View’s Shoreline Amphitheater in June 2022. Prior to that date, she was scheduled to perform at both 2020 and 2021 Napa Valley’s BottleRock festival, but both performances were canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.
Tickets for the show at the Chase Center officially go on sale Friday, January 27 at 10am.
