The Chicks postpone three shows after Natalie Maines is placed on vocal rest

All three shows have been rescheduled

The Chicks have postponed three shows of The Chicks Tour after front woman Natalie Maines was placed on “strict doctor’s orders for vocal rest.” The postponement follow the trio cutting their Noblesville, IN show short on Sunday (June 19th) after Maines was unable to perform a full set.

“We’ll try one more song,” Maines shares four songs into their set, citing allergies as the issue. “Waiting for this shot to kick in. Not a shot of alcohol! Steroids. I’m so sorry. I just can’t pull it off.”

The Noblesville show has been postponed to September 28th. Following the on stage announcement, The Chicks shared a message on their socials.

“Indianapolis, we are sorry we could not give you the show you deserved OR the show we wanted to give you. We will be back Indianapolis!! Hold onto your tickets,” they write.

The Cincinnati show set for Tuesday (June 21st) has been rescheduled to October 2nd with Wednesday’s Clarkston, MI show now set for September 28th.

No additional changes are expected to affect the remainder of the tour. Tickets will be honored for the newly rescheduled dates.

The 27 date Live Nation-produced tour kicked off June 14th in St. Louis and continues June 24th in Toronto with Patty Griffin opening all dates. The set lists of the two previously performed full shows on this tour contain 22 songs, including 10 from their latest album, Gaslighter. In addition, they played for two hours and did not return for an encore. Over the weekend, they performed a shorter set of 16 songs at Bonnaroo in Manchester, TN.

After nearly 14 years, The Chicks released their fifth studio album Gaslighter to rave reviews in July 2020 via Columbia Records. The 12-track record was co-produced by award-winning singer-songwriter, producer, and close friend of the band Jack Antonoff.
