Nicks, who is the only woman inducted in the Hall of Fame twice – with iconic band Fleetwood Mac and as a solo artist – returned to live performances in May, after a two-year hiatus.
She canceled a handful of 2021 appearances scheduled at music festivals last August, citing the pandemic.
At the time Nicks said, “While I’m vaccinated, at my age, I am still being extremely cautious and for that reason have decided to skip the five performances I had planned for 2021.”
Nicks is known for hits including “Stand Back, “Stop Dragging My Heart Around,” “Rhiannon,” “Gypsy” and “Leather and Lace.”
Carlton, a pianist and singer/songwriter, is best known for her debut 2002 hit, “A Thousand Miles.”
