The concert calendar at Golden 1 Center continues to take shape, with another classic-rock show aimed at the Baby Boomer set.

Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac is scheduled to appear at the new home of the Sacramento Kings as part of her upcoming solo tour. Nicks’ Golden 1 Center concert, which includes openers The Pretenders, is set for Dec. 13 – about two months after the arena opens on Oct. 4 via a sold-out concert by Paul McCartney.

Other concerts announced thus far at the $556.6 million Golden 1 Center include Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer Band (Oct. 20), Latin rock veterans Mana (Nov. 9), country star Eric Church (March 30). Apart from the Feb. 11 concert with Twenty One Pilots, the Golden 1 Center music lineup so far has been light on acts that target a younger demographic.

One show currently skipping Sacramento altogether is Green Day, the venerable pop-punk band that recently announced its latest tour dates. Some of these shows even have a Sacramento connection courtesy of Dog Party, the sister duo that got its start rocking local stages. So far, the closest Green Day/Dog Party will play is the UC Theatre on Oct. 20 in Berkeley.

Meanwhile, pre-sale tickets for Nicks can be had for American Express cardholders from Wednesday, Sept. 7 at 10 a.m. through Sunday, Sept. 11 at 10 p.m. Seats for the general public go on sale Sept. 12.

Ticket prices range from $49.50 to $149.50. For more information: www.livenation.com.

Take a tour of the future home of the Sacramento Kings.
