This is not a drill! The Dixie Chicks are going on tour next summer!

Time for a little happy dance. But, seriously, we are so excited!

The Grammy Award-winning and multi-platinum selling band announced on Monday (Nov. 6) that they will kick off their North American DCX MMXVI World Tour on June 1, 2016 at the Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The three ladies will visit over 40 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada with dates lined up in New York City, Los Angeles, Toronto, Chicago, Vancouver, Washington DC, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Boston and more.

Citi cardmembers will have access to pre-sale tickets beginning Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 10 a.m. local time through Citi’s Private Pass Program. For complete pre-sale details, visit www.citiprivatepass.comTickets for the general public go on sale starting Nov. 20 at www.livenation.com.

Since their first album, the music of the Dixie Chicks has stirred emotions in fans across the world making them one of the most biggest and most influential bands of our time.  They are one of a mere handful of acts with multiple albums achieving “diamond” status (meaning sales over 10 million copies) – both WIDE OPEN SPACES (1998) and FLY (1999) hit that stratospheric landmark – and over the years have sold over 30 million albums worldwide and won thirteen Grammy Awards. Their on-stage reputation has helped them sell over $100 million worth of concert tickets while outspoken songs like “Goodbye, Earl” and “Not Ready To Make Nice” made it clear that this power trio played by nobody’s rules. The Dixie Chicks have grown from a band into a cultural force becoming the biggest selling female band of all time in the U.S.
