– The Eagles, The Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban will team up for a country music tour starting June 8 in Toronto.
This will mark the first time in four years that the Chicks will be touring. The announcement was somewhat surprising because sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Robison teamed together to form the Court Yard Hands without lead singer Natalie Maines. They also planned to tour in support of an album due from Court Yard Hounds in early May.
The Eagles, Chicks and Urban will celebrate the opening of the New Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey during the tour.
The tour schedule is:
June 8 - Toronto, Rogers Centre
June 10 - East Rutherford, N.J., New Meadowlands Stadium
June 12 - Foxboro, Mass., Gillette Stadium
June 14 - Philadelphia, Citizens Bank Ball Park
June 15 - Washington, D.C., Nationals Park
June 19 - Chicago, Soldier Field
June 22 - Winnipeg, Canada, Canad Inns Stadium
June 24 - St. Louis, Busch Stadium.
Urban will not appear at the Canadian and St. Louis dates.
American Express Cardmembers will have early access to tickets beginning Monday, March 22 at 10 a.m. and tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Monday, March 29 at 10 a.m.
Tickets for the June 10 concert in East Rutherford will be $50, $85, $115 and $225. This will not be the first show at the stadium, which replaces Giants Stadium next door. Bon Jovi plays the venue May 26-27 and 29 with U2 coming July 19.
