Chapter 9 Summary: “Aurora World Tour (1978–1979)”

Daisy Jones & The Six go on a sold-out stadium tour for Aurora. They are rock stars: famous and living to the extreme. Daisy and Billy will only perform together, and two tour buses transport the band. Nicky and Daisy are trashing hotel rooms on a regular basis in an escalation of their hard partying and drug addictions. Having nearly jumped off a rooftop with Nicky, Daisy says, “That wasn’t my rock bottom. But it was the first time I looked around and thought, Oh, wow, I’m falling” (271). One night, Daisy can barely get on stage and then can barely get the words out to the songs. Now that her drug addiction is affecting her music performance, the band members and Rod become extremely worried about the deepening Daisy crisis.

While the band takes a brief holiday break for Christmas and the New Year, Pete proposes to his long-time girlfriend, Jenny, and reveals to his brother that he plans to leave the band after the Aurora tour. In Italy, Daisy nearly overdoses, and instead of calling for an ambulance, Nicky puts her under the shower. This moment is, finally, Daisy’s rock bottom.
