The Chicks Return To Australia27th April, 2023
RETURN TO AUSTRALIA IN OCTOBER AS PART OF THEIR WORLD TOUR 2023
FEATURING THREE A DAY ON THE GREEN DATES IN GEELONG, HUNTER VALLEY AND MOUNT COTTON
WITH SPECIAL GUEST ELLE KING
Roundhouse Entertainment, Chugg Entertainment and Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce the return of global superstars THE CHICKS to Australia and New Zealand this October.
Following their sold-out 2017 tour, including a spectacular headline slot at CMC Rocks QLD, THE CHICKS make their triumphant return to Antipodean shores for the first time in six years.
The captivating trio will play nine dates down under, including THE CHICKS’ a day on the green debut, with three very special outdoor shows – Mt Duneed Estate, Geelong, VIC on Saturday 14 October; Bimbadgen, Hunter Valley, NSW on Saturday 21 October; and Sirromet Wines, Mount Cotton, QLD on Sunday 22 October.
Tickets go on sale on Monday 8 May from Ticketmaster with the a day on the green and AAMI members’ pre-sale beginning Wednesday 3 May at 11.00am local time.
Making their Australian debut to huge acclaim in 1999, this year marks THE CHICKS’ fifth visit to our shores.
Michael Chugg, Executive Chairman Chugg Entertainment said, “Ever since I heard a demo in the late ’90s and did their first tour in November 1999, The Chicks have been a huge part of my life. Watching them become live icons of music has been an amazing journey, and their upcoming tour will go up another level again.”
With the release of their first studio album in fourteen years, 2020’s Gaslighter, THE CHICKS delivered their most anticipated yet, impressing critics globally, co-produced by Jack Antonoff and with collaborators including the likes of Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter and more. Pitchfork called it “a genuinely compelling new take on the punchy country sound that’s always made them stand out”, while Vulture wrote, “Gaslighter is as careful in its blending of country instrumentation and delicate pop flourishes as it is in its balance of righteous indignation and scandalous receipts … a pop-country killer”.
Earning universal recognition as the biggest-selling US female band of all time, THE CHICKS have sold more than 30.5 million albums and are among an elite group of artists and the only female group to achieve multiple Diamond-selling releases; reaching the stratospheric landmark of more than 10 million copies sold, with both Wide Open Spaces (1998) and Fly (1999).
Counting thirteen Grammy Awards, six Billboard Music Awards, four American Music Awards, and numerous Country Music Association Awards among many other accolades, THE CHICKS’ record-breaking 2006 studio album, Taking The Long Way, picked up five Grammy Awards including Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
Their on-stage reputation has seen THE CHICKS play to hundreds of thousands of fans at some of the world’s most prestigious venues, from London’s O2 Arena to the Hollywood Bowl, LA’s Staples Center to New York’s Madison Square Garden, and outspoken songs like Goodbye, Earl and Not Ready To Make Nice make it clear that this power trio plays by nobody’s rules. Superstars, renegades, innovators, heroes and villains – for more than two decades, THE CHICKS have developed from a band into a phenomenon.
“Bold lyrical content and fiery instrumental displays … spine-tingling”
Consequence of Sound
“Absolute powerhouse… one of country music’s top acts in concert”
With special guest ELLE KING joining THE CHICKS on all Australia and New Zealand dates, these shows will be an exhilarating live experience for all music lovers. Breaking through with her debut album Love Stuff (2015), four-time Grammy nominee King has achieved multiple US Platinum singles, with her global hit Ex’s & Oh’s chalking up 2x Platinum in Australia, and has collaborated with the likes of Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, Nile Rodgers and more. Her latest album Come Get Your Wife was released to rave reviews earlier this year, with Variety calling it a “masterstroke of music-making”.
Do not miss THE CHICKS with special guest ELLE KING this October, in what will be a series of unforgettable music events across Australia and New Zealand, including three very special a day on the green shows.
Tickets go on sale Monday 8 May from Ticketmaster.
