The Dixie Chicks are going back on the road with their upcoming “DCX MMXVI World Tour” — a 40-city musical journey through the U.S. and Canada which will include a stop in the Chicago area next year.
After kicking things off in Cincinnati June 1, the Chicks will play the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater in Tinley Park (formerly known as the First Midwest Bank Amphitheater) on June 5. Tickets will go on sale Saturday, with early sales available to Citi cardholders in the Private Pass Program, beginning at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
This North American tour will be produced by LiveNation and continue through an Oct. 10 finale concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
Beginning with their first album, the Dixie Chicks have had a huge impact on the world of popular music. The multi-platinum-selling trio is composed of founding members and sisters Martie Erwin and Emily Erwin Robison and lead singer Natalie Maines. The group has won 13 Grammys, including five in 2007 for “Taking the Long Way,” which also won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year.
The Dixie Chicks is the top-selling all-female band and biggest selling country group in the U.S. during the Nielsen SoundScan era of 1991 to the present.
