Brian McFadden will be joining Stevie Nicks and Dave Stewart on their Australian tour in November/December.

McManus Entertainment is thrilled to announce that Brian McFadden will be joining the legendary Stevie Nicks and Dave Stewart as a special guest for the 2011 Australian tour. McFadden will join the bill for the entire tour, playing shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane, Wollongong and Canberra.  Celebrated musician and songwriter Dave Stewart from Eurythmics will also be touring Australia for this very special show; tickets are on sale now for all Australian shows.

Brian McFadden has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide.  The tour coincides with the release of Brian McFadden’s new album in October before heading out on the road with Stevie Nicks and Dave Stewart throughout November and December.

McFadden states, “I am looking forward to getting back out and touring because the stage is where I feel most comfortable.”

Fans of both Fleetwood Mac and Eurythmics will be thrilled to know that Stevie Nicks and Dave Stewart will be performing their greatest hits from their respective bands as well as highlights from their solo careers.

Apart from Stevie’s incredible work with Fleetwood Mac, she has also had an extensive solo career, collectively having more than 40 Top 50 hits and selling more than 140 million albums worldwide. Just a few of her many solo hits include Edge of Seventeen, Leather and Lace, Stand Back, Bella Donna, Rooms On Fire and Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around. Stevie will also be playing songs from Fleetwood Mac’s extensive back catalogue. Some of their most loved songs include Rhiannon, Gypsy, Sara, Landslide, Dreams and Seven Wonders. 

Stevie recently celebrated her 63rd birthday at a once-in-a-lifetime special event in Los Angeles. Here Stevie also celebrated the release of her first solo album in more than a decade, In Your Dreams, which was the week's highest-charting new album when it was released in Australia. The first single from the album, Secret Love, was originally written for the Rumours album.

Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 Grammy Award winning Album of the Year, Rumours, stands as one of the greatest albums ever made. It has sold more than one million copies in Australia. The songs have stood the test of time and Rumours recently had a revival when it was introduced to a whole new generation of fans, thanks to a recent episode of Glee dedicated to this classic album. Following the episode, Rumours returned to the Australian charts at number two.

As well as Brian McFadden, Grammy and BRIT Award winning musician, songwriter and producer, Dave Stewart will also join Stevie Nicks on this Australian tour. Dave is best known for his work with Eurythmics and recently co-produced and co-wrote many of the songs on Stevie’s latest album, In Your Dreams. Dave Stewart’s music career spans three decades and more than 100 million album sales. Some of Dave’s biggest hits include I Only Want To Be With You (The Tourists) and Eurythmics hits Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This), Missionary Man, Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves, Would I Lie To You? and Thorn In My Side.
