The 13-time GRAMMY® award-winning, multi-platinum selling global superstars, The Chicks (formally of the Dixie variety), have announced their return to the global stage with The Chicks 2023 World Tour. Produced by Live Nation, the 37-date mega tour kicks off 20th June in Olso, Norway at Spektrum, with stops throughout the UK and Europe before returning to North America.
“This last year on the road has been a whirlwind for us, but it’s time to bring the party to the UK and Europe,” The Chicks said of the dates. “We can’t wait to see everyone and play for all our fans across the pond – it’s been a long time coming, and we can’t wait to get back!”
The Dallas, Texas-hailing Country music legends will also be bringing along GRAMMY® award-winning country music sensation Maren Morris to open their shows. A double treat for Country Music fans! Check out Rockshot Magazine’s review of Maren Morris’ show at Londons glorious Royal Albert Hall in 2019 with exclusive photos: Maren Morris Turns The Royal Albert Hall Into Her Church.
The run of shows will be The Chicks’ first dates in the UK for seven years and support will come from Maren Morris. General tickets on sale for all Europe & UK dates begin on Friday, 17 February at 10am local.
After nearly 14 years, The Chicks released their fifth studio album GASLIGHTER to rave reviews in July 2020 via Columbia Records. The 12-track record was co-produced by award-winning singer-songwriter, producer, and close friend of the band and Bleachers frontman, Jack Antonoff. The record was released a month after the group dropped “Dixie” from their name, citing a desire to have done so for many years following the association of the word to American slavery.

While dates across the UK and Ireland have been announced, any London shows are conspicuous by their absence. The timing of their tour is also a little coincidental given a certain rather large music festival held in Somerset takes place this year between the 21st and 25th June.

27th – Cardiff Castle, Cardiff
