Dolly Parton Announces Blue Smoke World Tour in Australia
Dolly Parton is hitting the road again. The songstress will kick off her Blue Smoke World Tour next year with six shows in Australia, to coincide with her upcoming 'Blue Smoke' album.
“Australia, here I come again," Parton says. "We have a lot of new and exciting things for the show and can’t wait to share it with you. I love my fans in that part of the world. You’ve been so very good to me for so many years and I know that we’re gonna have a wonderful time. It’s a long way from home in your part of the world, but I always feel like I’m right at home. So Australia, I’m coming home. Wait up!”
The 67-year-old, who is recovering at home following a minor car crash Monday (Oct. 21), previously visited Down Under as part of her Better Days tour in 2011, where she broke her previous attendance records. In addition to her shows in Australia, which include stops in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, she will also perform 11 shows in the UK, as well as in Ireland, Denmark, Germany and Norway.
Tickets for the Australian shows will go on sale on Friday, Nov. 1 and are available here.
