Wed. November 8th 2006 Rogers Arena (All Ages)
Tickets at: All Ticketmaster Locations
Presented by: AEG Live

Dixie Chicks, the biggest-selling female group in history, will bring their 2006 world tour, The Accidents & Accusations Tour to Vancouver, British Columbia on Wednesday, November 8th for a concert at General Motors Place. Tickets will go on sale on Saturday, June 3rd at 10:00 AM (PT).

The name of the North American leg of the tour was taken from a line in "Easy Silence," a song off their highly anticipated new album, Taking the Long Way. When describing what fans can expect from this year’s tour, Natalie Maines says that it will be "more of an old-style rock show, not so much about theatrics and props but just about the music." She also notes "to rock out, we used to have to pull out a cover tune, so it's nice to have your own songs to fill that part of the set."

In addition to new music from the Taking the Long Way album, Dixie Chicks will perform all their previous hits from their multi-platinum, Grammy-Award winning albums Wide Open Spaces (1998), Fly (1999) and their most recent release Home (2003). Their A-list touring band includes Austin sensation David Grissom (Joe Ely, John Mellencamp) reprising his 2003 role as leader of the Dixie Chicks band, acoustic guitarist extraordinaire Keith Sewell, (Ricky Skaggs), Wallflowers drummer Fred Eltringham, Black Crowes/Chris Robinson guitarist Audley Freed, west coast keyboard studio legend Larry Knechtel (Simon & Garfunkel, Mamas & Papas, Beach Boys) former Soul Coughing bassist Sebastian Steinberg, pedal steel player Pete Finney (Doug Sahm, Alison Moorer), Rod Stewart violinist Janna Jacoby and cellist John Krovoza. The North American dates on The Accidents & Accusations Tour are promoted by AEG Live.
