(Taste of Country) – The Dixie Chicks will return to Canada this fall for their first tour of the country in seven years. The group announced the 2013 Long Time Gone Tour on Monday (Aug. 19). The run includes nine dates between Oct. 26 and Nov. 10.
One of the shows, Oct. 31 in Calgary, Alb., is a reschedule of a concert postponed due to flooding earlier this year.Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire and Emily Robison were to play the Calgary Stampede on July 12. Those who bought tickets for that show can still use them for the new date. Those who can’t attend the new date can return tickets to Ticketmaster through Aug. 31.
Tickets for many of the remaining shows listed below go on sale Aug. 26 through Live Nation. A tweet at the Dixie Chicks’ official Twitter page linked to more information, but that link has since been disabled. Other media outlets reported on individual shows on this list.
The Dixie Chicks haven’t released a new album since ‘Taking the Long Way’ in 2006. In recent years, Robison and Maguire have collaborated to release two Court Yard Hounds albums, including ‘Amelita‘ in July. The duo have three dates on their official schedule, including two at the Austin City Limits Music Festival in October.
