Let $\left(a_{n}\right)_{n=1}^{\infty}$ be a lacunary sequence of positive real numbers. Rudnick and Technau showed that for almost all $\alpha\in\mathbb{R}$, the pair correlation of $\left(\alpha a_{n}\right)_{n=1}^{\infty}$ mod 1 is Poissonian. We show that all higher correlations and hence the nearest-neighbour spacing distribution are Poissonian as well, thereby extending a result of Rudnick and Zaharescu to real-valued sequences.
