Stevie Nicks’ 24 Karat Gold Tour made its way to Sydney’s International Convention Centre for two near-capacity shows, Nov. 7-8, grossing a total of $1.2 million. With the Pretenders as the opening act, the nearly 12,000 fans in attendance were treated to a no-nonsense, hit-filled opening set. Once Nicks hit the stage, she informed the crowd that it would be an evening of stories and Rock and Roll; she then reflected on the recent passing of her long-time collaborator and good friend Tom Petty sharing stories of their time together throughout her two-and-a-half hour set. The Pretenders and Nicks will be at KeyArena, Seattle, Dec. 11.

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra kicked off the holiday season with two sold-out shows at the Mohegun Sun Arena, Uncasville, Conn., Nov. 26, wowing the crowds with pyrotechnics, giant video screens, lasers, faux falling snow and dazzling Christmas music. Both shows grossed a combined $771,000 with over 14,000 fans in attendance. The rock orchestra tells a story with their music titled The Ghosts of Christmas Eve; they use rock music as their inspiration while adding in elements of classical music and heavy metal. The visually stunning live event will be at the Jacksonville (Fla.) Veterans Memorial Arena Dec. 14.
