Stevie Nicks has announced she’ll head out on the road across North America later this year on the 24 Karat Gold Tour.

It’s named after the Fleetwood Mac singer’s 2014 album 24 Karat Gold: Songs From The Vault, which featured material she wrote between 1969 and 1987.

The run of dates have taken a while to come around after her Fleetwood Mac commitments, but she says late 2016 is the perfect time for her to hit the road on a trip where she’ll be joined by the Pretenders.

Nicks tells the New York Times: “I just woke up one morning and said, ‘I have two years off before Fleetwood Mac comes knocking on my door for another tour. Why would I want to sit around and do nothing?’”

Speaking about the differences between her work in the band and her solo career, Nicks continues: “Fleetwood Mac is a team, and when you’re on a team everybody has the same vote – except in this particular team Lindsey Buckingham has a little bit of a stronger vote than anybody else.

“I love being part of a team. We argue all the time, but we always have. In my band, there is no arguing. I am the boss.

“My solo career is probably the reason Fleetwood Mac is still together in 2016, because I was always happy to leave Fleetwood Mac, and I was always happy to come back, too.”

The run of show will kick off in Phoenix on October 25 and wrap up in Inglewood on December 18.

In late 2014, Nicks reported that a second volume of 24 Karat Gold could be a possibility.
