Country music icons The Chicks are making their long-awaited return to Australia and New Zealand.
Formerly known as The Dixie Chicks, the powerhouse trio of Emily Strayer, Martie Maguire, and Natalie Maines will perform in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Auckland, and Christchurch in October. While Down Under, they’ll also appear at two A Day on the Green shows at Hunter Valley and Mount Cotton (see full dates below).
The Chicks will be supported by Elle King on the upcoming tour, and it will be their first time touring the two countries since 2017. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, May 8th, while the Frontier Members pre-sale begins on Wednesday, May 3rd.
This will be The Chicks’ fifth visit to this part of the world, and Michael Chugg, Chugg Entertainment’s Executive Chairman, couldn’t be more excited. “Ever since I heard a demo in the late 90’s and did their first tour in November 1999, The Chicks have been a huge part of my life,” he says. “Watching them become live icons of music has been an amazing journey, and their upcoming tour will go up another level again.”
Renowned as one of the biggest-selling US female bands of all time, The Chicks released their latest album, the well-received Gaslighter, in 2020. They remain the only female band to achieve multiple Diamond-selling releases over their career.
