The Chicks are officially planning to hit the road on a 2022 summer tour. The country trio comprised of sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Strayer, along with lead singer Natalie Maines, have announced a 27 city tour that will run June through August.
This is the first tour from The Chicks after releasing their 2020 album Gaslighter, their first in 14 years. The album was released in the early days of the COVID pandemic which postponed their plans to perform their new songs live for their fans. Despite not getting to tour in 2020, the trio did change their name from The Dixie Chicks to The Chicks, dropping the 'dixie' as a response to the increasing conversations about racial injustice.
"While we were recording the 'Gaslighter' album, I was constantly picturing performing all of those songs on tour," Martie Maguire said in a statement to AP News. "The ultimate payoff is always the live show for us."
Singer-songwriter Patty Griffin will be joining The Chicks on tour as well as indie rocker Jenny Lewis, known for Rilo Kiley and The Postal Service, who will join for six shows. Tickets for the new tour go on sale Friday, March 4.
