"We haven't begun rehearsals but I can already tell you this, with Stevie on board our audiences are in store for an evening of pure rock 'n' roll music," Stewart said in a news release. "I'm already thinking about which of my old favorites to bring back and vocally, I think we've both begun thinking about which songs might be great fun and well-suited for a duet or two."
Nicks is touring in support of her forthcoming album, "In: Your Dreams," due May 3. And Stewart is coming off of a series of successful concerts, which included sold-out appearances at Las Vegas' Colosseum At Caesars Palace and a 33-date European tour. In 2010, he released "Fly Me to the Moon…The Great American Songbook, Volume V," which has sold 286,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
