Making their Australian debut to huge acclaim in 1999, this year marks the band’s fifth visit to our shores.

“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,” says Michael Chugg, Executive Chairman Chugg Entertainment.

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.

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, their 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.
