The Chicks postpone three shows after cutting short Indy gig

Wednesday, June 22, 2022 – The Chicks cut short a concert in Indianapolis on Sunday and were forced to cancel three shows this week as well due to vocal issues for lead singer Natalie Maines.

The tour apparently will continue this coming weekend in Toronto as The Chicks tweeted Wednesday night, "Thanks for always having our backs. Toronto, we'll see you Friday & Saturday!"

"As a result of strict doctor's orders for vocal rest, The Chicks are forced to postpone the following shows: Noblesville, IN, Cincinnati, OH, Clarkston, MI," The Chicks tweeted.

The shows were rescheduled to Sept. 28 in Clarkston, Sept. 30 in Noblesvile and Oct. 2 in Cincinnati. Patty Griffin will open each show as had been scheduled. Tickets for the original dates will be honored as well.

The Chicks started the show in Indianapolis, but had to cancel it due to the vocal problems about a half hour into the concert, according to Variety. Maines indicated she had been having vocal issues and was "waiting for this shot to kick in," referring to steroids.

="Indianapolis we are so sorry we could not give you the show you deserved OR the show we wanted to give you. We will be back Indianapolis!!," The Chicks tweeted.

Ticket holders will be contacted by the official point of purchase with more information, The Chicks said.

The trio lost its standing on the country radio scene; their albums were burned, and they received death threats.But Emily Robison, Martie Maguire and Maines do not backpedal on these 14 songs. They, instead, address the issues that have faced them head on time and again. "Not Ready to Make Nice" maintains ...
The Dixie Chicks certainly enjoyed their most controversial year ever thanks to a few words uttered by lead singer Natalie Maines, and they also had one of the most successful tours of 2003 as well. This 22-song live disc recorded somewhere during the U.S. part of the tour is clear indication that beyond the headlines, there was a tremendous amount of quality music going on. The mix put Maines' vocals way out front. She has always been a good singer, and this indicates just how good she truly is. ...
