Dolly announces new tour and album

Dolly Parton will visit 60 cities on her new Pure & Simple tour and release a new double-disc album this summer.

Dolly Parton will bring her boundless energy to stages in over 60 cities as she embarks on her first major U.S. and Canadian tour in more than 25 years. For the last 20 years, she has only played select dates in the U.S., but her 2016 tour will cover cities across North America.

In what is sure to be one of the summer's most sought-out concerts, Dolly will perform her hit songs all while weaving in a few new songs from her new double-disc album "Pure & Simple with Dolly's Biggest Hits." She will delight fans by playing songs they have not heard live for decades. Dolly said,

“We’re so excited to get out there and see the fans again. I’m really looking forward to singing songs the fans have not heard in a while, as well as the hits, while debuting a few new ones off Pure & Simple."

"Pure & Simple with Dolly's Biggest Hits" 2-CD set will include all new material as well as a compilation of Dolly’s biggest hits. A track listing will be announced soon.

The Country Music Hall of Famer is on one of the biggest hot streaks of her career after her hugely successful TV movie, "Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors," attracted a network record of 15.8+ million viewers making it the most-watched movie on network TV in more than six years. “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” is coming to DVD on May 3.

Tour dates and album details are coming soon.
