The Chicks, thirteen-time Grammy winner, are back on tour. This is their first major appearance since 2017, and their first shows since the release of their fifth studio album Gaslighter.
The multi-platinum female trio behind hit songs like “Wide Open Spaces,” announced Monday that the Chicks Tour would visit 27 North American cities, starting in June and continuing through August.
Martie Maguire said that while we were recording the Gaslighter’ album, she was picturing all those songs being performed on tour. She also shared the statement with the AP. “Live shows are always our ultimate reward.”
The Chicks have released “Gaslighter in 2020, their first album in 14 years. However, plans for a tour were thwarted by the pandemic. The summer tour will begin in St. Louis, June 14th, with stops in Chicago and Toronto, Boston, Charlotte as well as two nights in Los Angeles at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
Strayer said, “The first few minutes of every show is what I have forgotten the most about touring.” “The sound of the crowd, the roaring of the crowd, and the opening song blasting through the PA. We’ve all missed the connection that live music can bring, I think.
Patty Griffin, a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, and Jenny Lewis, an indie rocker are the tour openers.
Maines stated that “most of our fans know we are die-hard Patty fans.” “We saw her at The Ryman in 1998, and haven’t stopped talking about her since!” We covered more of her songs together than anyone else on our first headlining tour, 2000.
