BIG IN CANADA
The New York Times reports:
The Dixie Chicks may play a role in the November elections.
Well, they’re not playing anywhere else, with Dixie Chicks concerts canceled in St Louis, Indianapolis, Fargo, Oklahoma City, Memphis, Tampa, Jacksonville (at the Veterans Memorial Arena), and Sunrise. The band has lately reshuffled its schedule:
On previous tours, the Dixie Chicks consistently sold out venues throughout North America. That changed on the band’s current tour, when planned shows in several Southern and Midwestern cities were canceled due to soft ticket sales. The group reshuffled its schedule to focus on areas where sales were still strong, including Canada and the Northeastern US.
