The new film, Stevie Nicks: 24 Karat Gold – The Concert, will play for two nights only on October 21st and 25th at select cinemas, drive-ins and exhibition spaces, around the world, Nicks said in a statement announcing the event: “The 24 Karat Gold Tour was my all-time favorite tour.

From me to you — 24 Karat Gold.” For ticket info log on to: StevieNicksFilm.com.
A double-disc live soundtrack will be released on CD and digital/streaming services on October 30th. The set features 17 tracks including such classics as “Stand Back,” “Gypsy,” and “Edge of Seventeen,” as well as the first ever live recording of the pre-Fleetwood Mac, 1973 Buckingham Nicks favorite “Crying In The Night,” among other live rarities.
The double-CD will be available exclusively at Target on October 30th, and the digital release will be available everywhere on the same day. A limited-edition two-album 180-gram version will be available on “Crystal-Clear” vinyl exclusively at Barnes & Noble, while a 180-gram black vinyl version will be available everywhere.
Stevie Nicks believes the art of songwriting is an act of healing for both the creator and the listener: “To me, the music is writing songs and that is to be able to write something that maybe at a time in somebody else's life, they need a little help or a little inspiration, or something, that they would sit down and listen to something I wrote and it would just either make them feel a little better or they'd be able to go 'Somebody else's been there, too — and that helps me.'”
Back in 1983, only two years into her solo career, Stevie Nicks explained that fronting and leading her own band was hardly a walk in the park compared to the cushy existence she and her bandmates enjoyed in Fleetwood Mac: “I don't feel like a princess anymore. I feel like a hard working princess, because I am called upon now to do a lot more that I never really thought I wanted to do. I never really wanted to be a solo artist. I never wanted to go up there and stand and sing 20 songs alone. I loved being in Fleetwood Mac, because it was a band.”
