In their first headlining tour in over five years, The Chicks drew a devoted crowd of supporters to Coastal Credit Union Music Park in Raleigh.
The weather was hot and humid, but that didn’t stop the band’s or the crowd’s enthusiasm. This tour, simply named The Chicks Tour, highlighted their 2020 album Gaslighter, the band’s first studio album in over a decade.
Arguably more important, this was the band’s first official tour since dropping “Dixie” from their name in 2020 to distance themselves from the Confederacy. The Chicks’ return to the limelight felt seamless; songs from the group’s latest album drew just as much of a response as their most popular albums Fly and Wide Open Spaces from the late ‘90s.
