Stevie Nicks made several appearances on Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ 2006 Highway Companions Tour. Nicks had originally planned to take the year off from performing, but when Petty asked her to accompany him for the 30th anniversary tour, Nicks jumped at the opportunity to tour with her good friend and all-time favorite artist.
Nicks joined Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers on the first eight shows of the tour and several shows in September and October 2006. Petty introduced Nicks as an “honorary Heartbreaker” at shows. Nicks performed “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” and “Insider” with Petty and covered his 1978 hit “I Need to Know,” which has become a staple in her own set lists.
