The Dixie Chicks will return to the road in North America in late June for an all-arena trek, sources tell Billboard.com. The Chicks last toured in 2003, grossing $62.2 million and drawing more than a million fans to 73 shows.
As previously reported, the country trio is working on its next Open Wide/Monument/Columbia studio album with producer Rick Rubin. No release date has yet been confirmed for the follow-up to 2002’s “Home,” which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and has sold more than 5.8 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The most recent taste of new music from the Chicks came in September via “I Hope,” a co-write with blues artist Keb’ Mo’ that served as a charity download for Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.
