Stevie Nicks Attends Taylor Swift's Concert In Dublin

Stevie Nicks received a touching tribute from Taylor Swift while attending the pop star’s Eras Tour concert in Dublin on Sunday.

During the show, Swift took a moment to acknowledge Nicks, whom she referred to as a “friend,” before performing her song, “Clara Bow,” that name-checks the Fleetwood Mac singer.

“This one is a pretty easy one because I’ve never played this one live before,” Swift said. “The reason I want to play this tonight is because a friend of mine is here who is watching the show and who has really been one of the reasons why I or any female artist gets to do what we get to do. She’s paved the way for us. And she’s mentored so many artists that you don’t even know she’s doing it.”

“She’s just become friends with so many female artists just to be a guiding hand. I can’t tell you how rare that is,” she continued. “She’s a hero of mine and also someone that I can tell her any secret, and she’d never tell anybody. She’s really helped me through so much over the years. I’m talking about Stevie Nicks.”

Swift then sang a mashup of “Clara Bow” and another of her songs, “The Lucky One.” In “Clara Bow,” Swift sings about women in the music industry being compared to one another, singing, “You look like Stevie Nicks in ’75, the hair and lips.”

The “Tortured Poets Department” artist also sang her song, “You’re on Your Own, Kid,” which Nicks had previously thanked Swift for writing. During one of Nicks’ concerts in 2023, she said the song reminded her of her Fleetwood Mac bandmate, Christine McVie, who died in 2022.

“Thank you to Taylor Swift for doing this thing for me, and that is writing a song called ‘You’re on Your Own, Kid,’” Nicks said at the time. “That is the sadness of how I feel. As long as Chris was, even on the other side of the world, we didn’t have to talk on the phone. We really weren’t phone buddies. Then we would go back to Fleetwood Mac, and we would walk in and it would be like, ‘Little sister, how are you?’ It was like never a minute had passed, never an argument in our entire 47 years — never.”

“So, when it was the two of us, the two of us were on our own, kids, we always were,” she continued. “And now, I’m having to learn to be on my own, kid, by myself. So, you help me to do that. Thank you.”

Previously, Nicks and Swift performed a medley of Fleetwood Mac’s “Rhiannon” and Swift’s “You Belong With Me” together at the 2010 Grammys.
