Stevie Nicks with special guest Vanessa Carlton will perform at the Grandstand on Friday, Aug. 25 as part of their 24 Karat Tour. Singer and songwriter Stevie Nicks has an impressive career spanning more than four decades. She became an overnight sensation after joining Fleetwood Mac in 1975. The band’s first studio album with Nicks, Fleetwood Mac, went straight to No.1 and sold 3 million copies. Hits off that album include “Rhiannon” and “Landslide.” Just two years later, the band released Rumours, which saw record setting success.The album spent 31 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, went platinum in the United States and the U.K., and garnered a Grammy Award for Album of the Year. The album also brought the band’s first No. 1 single “Dreams.” After much success with Fleetwood Mac, Nicks worked on a number of solo projects. 1981’s Bella Donna featured the hit singles “Edge of Seventeen” and “Leather and Lace.” Fleetwood Mac reunited in 1997, and in 1998, the band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Stevie Nicks with Vanessa Carlton: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25. Tickets: $90, $74 and $49 (all reserved seating).
