Dixie Chicks Announce First US Tour in a Decade

Fans of the Dixie Chicks have reason to celebrate as the country/pop trio announced their first U.S. tour in almost 10 years. Their DCX MMXVI World Tour will take the ladies stateside for the majority of the summer as they play 42 shows in North America.


The tour is slated to start on June 1 in Cincinnati and end on Oct. 10 at the Hollywood Bowl. New York shows include Saratoga Springs on June 11 and Madison Square Garden on June 13. U.S. dates will begin after the trio’s European Tour that starts in April.

Since their 2006 Accusations & Accidents World Tour, the trio has performed sporadically. They haven’t released a new album since 2006. In 2010, they reunited to open for the Eagles then laid low until 2013, when they toured only internationally. During their downtime, they focused more on side projects. Singer Natalie Maines released an album of rock-inspired covers called Mother. Meanwhile, sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Robinson started Court Yards Hounds, a country-folk group. Before exiting the country music spotlight, The Dixie Chicks won 13 Grammys and sold over 30 million albums.

Members of the group’s fan club get pre-sale priority, as do folks purchasing VIP ticket packages with pre-sales for both groups on Tuesday. An online pre-sale starts Wednesday at 10 a.m. for Citi card-holders. Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday morning for a majority of tour dates. Ticket prices have yet to be announced.
