The Dixie Chicks Announce First U.S. Tour in 10 Years

After staying away from the American touring circuit for nearly ten years, the Dixie Chicks are set to embark on a massive comeback tour next year.

Early this morning (Nov. 16), the Chicks made the surprise announcement of their upcoming DCX MMXVI World Tour through a video posted to their Facebook page. The set of dates, which kicks off on June 1, will mark the first time that members Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire and Emily Robison embark on a full tour together in their home country since 2006.

The tour will begin just a few weeks after the Chicks’ recently announced tour of Europe wraps up, which initially sparked rumors that the group was planning at least a few American tour stops.

It seems as though more than enough time has passed since the group was banished from the country music scene due to controversial comments about then-President George W. Bush. Although it will be interesting to see how the tour is received, it seems likely that the Chicks will find success with their much-deserved homecoming.

Tickets for all dates will go on-sale for fan club members beginning Nov. 17, with a general on-sale slated for Nov. 20.
