The Chicks Make Plans to Hit the Road for a Summer 2022 Tour
The Chicks are making plans for a self-titled string of amphitheater dates in 2022. Titled the Chicks Tour, the run kicks off June 14 with a St. Louis, Mo. stop, and runs through mid-August.
The trio's return to the road comes after their 2020 album release, Gaslighter, the first full-length batch of new music from the Chicks since 2006's Taking the Long Way. In the meantime, the group had dropped the "Dixie" from their name in 2020 as a response to intensifying conversations surrounding racial injustice. Gaslighter came out during the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic, and though the band had planned an arena tour for that year, those plans were impacted by the shutdowns surrounding the pandemic.
Now, however, the Chicks have made plans for a 27-city tour for summer 2022. Joining the band on the road for the bulk of dates will be singer-songwriter Patty Griffin, and Jenny Lewis (of pop groups Rilo Kiley and the Postal Service) has been announced as a supporting act for six shows.
Additionally, on their tour this year the Chicks will work to make their shows more sustainable in a partnership with environmental nonprofit Reverb.org. Fans will have the change to get involved with environmental and social causes at the shows, with a Chicks/Reverb Action Village being set up at every stop.
Tickets for the Chicks' upcoming tour go on sale March 4 at 10AM local time.
