“We had such a great time playing for our Canadian fans this summer that we’ve been inspired to come back for more,” say the band.
The Dixie Chicks are Martie Maguire (fiddle, mandolin, vocals), Emily Robison (banjo, dobro, guitar, vocals), and Natalie Maines (lead vocals, guitar). Originally formed in 1989 in Dallas, Texas as a bluegrass band that included founding members and sisters Maguire and Robison, the band went on to find massive worldwide success following the addition of powerhouse lead singer Natalie Maines. Together as the Dixie Chicks, they have sold over 30 million albums, 1.6 million in Canada alone, and are one of the few acts to have multiple albums reaching “diamond” status. To date, they have won 13 Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year for their 2007 album Taking the Long Way. Their on-stage reputation has helped them sell over $100 million worth of concert tickets, and made them the biggest selling female band of all time in the US. In addition to the Dixie Chicks, all 3 members have had continued success with other music projects, Maguire and Robinson with the Court Yard Hounds, and Maines with the recent 2013 release of her debut solo album.
“The Dixie Chicks are among the greatest talents in music today“, says Paul Haagenson, President of Live Nation, Canada. “We are truly honored to be involved in welcoming them back to Canada on this tour.”
Tickets for the Long Time Gone Tour 2013 go on sale to the general public on August 26th, and are available at Livenation.com.
