Watch: Fleetwood Mac stuns Auckland crowd with Crowded House cover 'Don't Dream It's Over'

Beloved local muso Neil Finn was joined by rock legend Stevie Nicks to perform his song 'Don't Dream It's Over' as part of Fleetwood Mac's concert in Auckland on Thursday. 

During the preamble to the classic Crowded House song, Mick Fleetwood gushed about how he had heard "the most beautiful song" several decades ago. 

"I had no idea who was singing it, or from whence they came, but it stayed right in my heart where I need to see it, to feel it and be held by it," he told the crowd. 

"All of these years later, we play it together, now with a dear, dear friend of mine, who came from these parts here."

Afterwards, Stevie Nicks told Finn he should never forget how important the song is, calling it "a song that has meaning to it and also remains current. 

"It's amazing every night that you sing it," she said.     

It was Finn's first time performing with the iconic band for a Kiwi audience, off the back of 76 shows across the globe.

"It's good to be home," Finn told the crowd at Spark Arena. 

Fleetwood Mac will play three more shows at Spark Arena, on September 14, 16 and 19, before heading to Dunedin for one night only on September 21.
