The Chicks are making plans for a string of U.S. tour dates later this year.
Titled the Chicks Tour, the run is set to start on 14 June with a St. Louis, Missouri stop, and runs through until mid-August.
The trio’s return to the road comes after their 2020 album release Gaslighter – the first full-length batch of new music from the Chicks since 2006. In the meantime, the group had dropped the “Dixie” from their name in 2020 as a response to intensifying conversations surrounding racial injustice.
Gaslighter came out during the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic, and though the band had planned an arena tour for that year, those plans were impacted by the shutdowns surrounding the pandemic.
Now, however, the Chicks have made plans for a 27-city tour for summer 2022. And joining the band on the road for the bulk of dates will be singer-songwriter Patty Griffin, and Jenny Lewis (of pop groups Rilo Kiley and the Postal Service) has been announced as a supporting act for six shows.
Tickets for the Chicks’ upcoming tour are due to go on sale from 4 March.
