The Chicks Are Ready To Hit The Road Again

The Chicks are finally ready to head out on tour after their “Gaslighter” trek was called off due to the pandemic, and it sounds like fans are in for some surprises.

The band is particularly excited to finally be able to play “Gaslighter” songs on tour, with Emily Stayer telling “Entertainment Weekly” “we’re going to try and get as many of the songs from the new album in rotation as possible.”

Natalie Maines adds of the set, “We try to freshen it up with different covers and surprises, but it’s going to be more entertaining for us to have a lot of new stuff — and hear the fans sing along,” with Martie Maguire adding, “They’ve had more time to live with this album, so they should know the words.”

Of course, the band will play their classic tunes, but which ones may change nightly, with the trio using oversized dice to pick songs that make the set list each night.

“At one point in the show, we’ll roll the dice, and there’s six songs allotted to each number,” Natalie explains, “so we’ll see what surprise song we’re going to play that night,” noting, “We might have different opinions on which songs we should bring back or what fans would like, and so we were like, ‘Let’s leave it up to chance.’ We all got to vote on what made the song list.”

Natalie adds that they will also be changing up some of their hits, noting, “It’s still the same melody and stuff, but we wanted to change it up a bit from how we always do it.”

The Chicks tour kicks off June 14th in Maryland Heights, Missouri.
