The trio formerly known as the Dixie Chicks are heading back out on the road this summer for the first time as the Chicks. The country band has scheduled a tour spanning 27 cities in North America in support of their 2020 album Gaslighter, the band’s first in 14 years. Jenny Lewis and Patty Griffin will join for select tour dates.

The Chicks Tour will begin on June 14 at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in St. Louis, Missouri, and make stops in Chicago, Toronto, Boston, Los Angeles, and more. The trek will conclude at the Gorge in George, Washington on Aug. 13. Ticket sales begin on Friday, March 4 via Ticketmaster.

Two years before Gaslighter, the Chicks shared the live album DCX MMXVI Live from their expansive 2018 tour. But it was their 2016 reunion on the road that inspired them to get back in the studio to create the follow-up to 2006’s Taking the Long Way.

“It was putting our toes in the water, seeing who was still out there in fandom,” Emily Strayer told NPR in 2020. “Our demographic was still the same, but had changed as well, so we had mothers bringing daughters, we had all walks of life; it was just really, really a fun tour. I think after that, we’re like, ‘OK, let’s do another album.’”
