The Eagles, Chicks, Urban announce summer stadium tour

Tuesday, March 16, 2010 – 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.

CD review - Taking the Long Way Much has changed on the musical landscape for the Dixie Chicks since the Incident in London three years ago when lead singer Natalie Maines criticized President Bush on the eve of the Iraq war. 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. ...
