The all-girl band, consisting of Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire, and Emily Robison, better known as the Dixie Chicks, just finished up their European tour, leaving American fans are wondering if they plan on touring in the U.S. again. Maines answered that question in a recent Twitter conversation between herself and a fan where she hinted that a Dixie Chicks U.S. tour could be a possibility.
Twitter user, Mother of Darkness, asked Maines if she was “ready to play nice yet” and if the Dixie Chicks would ever tour the United States again. Maines’ responded with a playful tweet saying…
I’ll never make nice, but I will tour the states again ;)”
Natalie Maines and her Dixie Chicks bandmates, encountered a gigantic controversy in 2003 after Maines made comments about then-President Bush and the Iraq war while touring overseas. Shortly after, the group went their separate ways and, with the exception of a few private performances, they have not performed together at large scale venues since.
The Chicks, who were one of the best-selling U.S. female groups of all time, recently went on a six-date European tour this spring. They also have a new set of dates scheduled for 2016, including shows in Amsterdam, Birmingham, London, Manchester, Glasgow and Dublin. Their comeback comes close to a decade after the release of their most recent, all-original album, 2006′s Taking the Long Way.
Tour info for the European shows is available on the Dixie Chicks’ website.
Country music fans are very loyal and we may forgive but we’ll never forget…are we ALL ready to make nice? Can’t we just go back to the way things used to be? Truth be told, if the Dixie Chicks decide to do a U.S. Tour, we would most likely be in attendance.
