Slow Ticket Sales Threatened Dixie Chicks to Cancel Tour


Dixie Chicks
Billboard reported June 7, 2006 that a handful of dates on the North American leg of the Dixie Chicks' upcoming Accidents & Accusations tour, which kicks of July 21 in Detroit, might be postponed.


Country music trio the Dixie Chicks are threatened to cancel numbers of dates on the North American leg of their upcoming "Accidents & Accusations tour," which kicks of July 21 in Detroit, due to slow ticket sales.

This of course was such a bad news judging from the success of their album "Taking the Long Way" which has been sold for 526,000 copies during its first seven days and has been the number-one album in the country for two weeks.

Reports on that matter was first released by Billboard on Wednesday June 7th, 2006. It is reported that while early ticket purchases for their first major tour in three years are generally robust in Northeastern cities, initial sales have fallen short of expectations in numerous markets, especially in the Midwest and South, forcing some dates to be scrubbed.

Billboard magazine reported that ticket counts for shows that went on sale last weekend were averaging 5,000 to 6,000 seats per date in major markets, and less in secondary locales. Arena capacities on the tour generally top 15,000. What an unfortunate then.
