Largest North American Tour in 25 Years; US & Canadian Tour Will Stop In Over 60 Cities
New 2-CD Set to be Released This Summer
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 7, 2016) –
Dolly Parton is set to bring her boundless energy to stages in over 60
cities as she embarks on her first major U.S. and Canadian tour in more
than 25 years. 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. As one of the hottest concert tickets of the summer, Parton’s
legion of fans are destined to sell out the shows quickly. Parton’s
set-list will include hit songs all while weaving in a few new songs
from her double-disc album Pure & Simple with Dolly’s Biggest Hits. She will also be playing songs that have not been heard live for decades.
“We’re so excited to get out there and see the fans again. I’m really
looking forward to singing songs the fans have not heard in a while, as
well as the hits, while debuting a few new ones off Pure & Simple,” Parton said.
Pure & Simple with Dolly’s Biggest Hits 2-CD set will include all new material as well as a compilation of Parton’s biggest hits. A track listing for Pure & Simple will be announced soon.
The Country Music Hall of Famer 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 15.8+ million viewers
and was the most watched movie on network TV in more than 3 years.
“Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” will be released on DVD May 3.
