OF 2016 ‘PURE & SIMPLE’ TOUR
Her Largest North American Tour in 25 Years Kicks Off June 3
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 25, 2016) –
Coming off the heels of a headline-making performance at the ACM Awards
in early April, Dolly Parton is heading out on her largest North
American tour in over two decades. Tickets are selling fast for the
first leg of the Pure & Simple Tour, which will be a total of 16
dates. (See first 14 announced in tour schedule below)
Dolly Parton’s Pure & Simple Tour coincides with the summer release of her double-disc album Pure & Simple with Dolly’s Biggest Hits.
The collection will include some of Parton’s most popular singles as
well as a few new tracks. Parton’s set list will include the hits her
fans love along with a few new songs from the double-disc album. She
will also be playing songs that have not been heard live for decades.
Additional U.S. dates for Parton’s 2016 historic tour will be
announced soon, which includes her first trek into Canada in more than
two decades. For the last 20 years, Parton has only played select dates
in the U.S., but her 2016 tour will cover cities across North America.
The entertainment icon is on one of the biggest hot streaks of her
career after her hugely successful TV movie, “Dolly Parton’s Coat of
Many Colors,” attracted a network record of more than 15.8 million
viewers. It was the most watched movie on network TV in more than three
years and will be released on DVD May 3.
