Taylor Swift Honors Stevie Nicks at Final Dublin Eras Tour Show

Taylor Swift delivered a heartfelt tribute to rock legend Stevie Nicks during the last show of her Dublin Eras Tour.

On Sunday, June 30, Nicks, 76, was in the audience at the Aviva Stadium as Swift, 34, performed the live debut of “Clara Bow” from her album The Tortured Poets Department.

“Clara Bow” pays homage to Nicks, likening her to the iconic 1920s “It Girl,” Clara Bow. As Swift sang, “You look like Stevie Nicks, in ’75, the hair and lips. Crowd goes wild at her fingertips, half moonshine, a full eclipse,” the crowd erupted in applause, acknowledging the influence of Nicks on the pop superstar’s career.

Before performing the song, Swift took a moment to express her deep admiration for Nicks. “She’s a hero of mine and also someone that I can tell her any secret and she’d never tell anybody,” Swift shared with the audience. “She’s really helped me through so much over the years. I’m talking about Stevie Nicks.”

The emotional performance saw Swift reflecting on her own journey to stardom, drawing parallels to Nicks’ rise with Fleetwood Mac in 1975. The connection between the two artists was palpable, highlighting the impact Nicks has had on Swift’s musical and personal life.

Swift transitioned “Clara Bow” into “The Lucky One” from her Red album, and concluded the surprise set with “You’re On Your Own, Kid” from her latest album, Midnights. This final song holds special meaning, as Nicks previously shared that it helped her cope with the loss of her Fleetwood Mac bandmate, Christine McVie, in November 2022.

The bond between Swift and Nicks extends beyond music. Nicks contributed a poem to the prologue of The Tortured Poets Department in August 2023, underscoring their artistic and emotional connection.

As the concert drew to a close, the audience was left with a sense of shared history and mutual respect between two generations of musical icons. Swift’s homage to Nicks was not just a performance but a testament to the enduring influence of one of rock’s greatest figures on the new wave of music artists.

The final Dublin show of the Eras Tour will be remembered not only for Swift’s dynamic performance but also for the touching tribute that highlighted the powerful bond between her and Stevie Nicks.
