Dixie Chicks Team With MSN

Dixie Chicks signed a two-year deal with MSN to document the trio’s 2006 North American tour, the band announced along with tour dates May 18th.

MSN will stream selected material and act as a Web portal for ticket presales at dixiechicks.msn.com.

The tour is promoted by AEG, except for visits to Minneapolis and Chicago that will be handled by Jam Productions, and Sacramento and Oakland with Another Planet Entertainment.

The “Accidents and Accusations” tour, supporting the Chicks’ new album Taking The Long Way, is the first since their controversy-laden 2003 outing.
