Dolly Parton announces European tour dates and new album

Iconic singer, songwriter, musician, actress and philanthropist Dolly Parton announces the 'Blue Smoke World Tour' will
travel across the pond in 2014 for June and July concerts in Europe hitting
England, Ireland, Scotland, Denmark, Germany, Norway, as well as a return to the
O2 Arena in London, the venue where Dolly recorded and filmed 'An Evening
(Dolly Records), her widely praised DVD/CD set that was
certified GOLD by the RIAA. 

Dolly’s latest studio album of all new material
'Blue Smoke' will be released worldwide on Dolly Records with a release
date to be announced soon. 

“Every time I come to Europe I’m just as
excited as I was my very first time, which was many, many years ago.  I love
that part of the world and I especially love the fans,” adds Parton.  “We always
have such a good time and I’ve put together a lot of things for this show that I
think the fans will love.  We had not planned to come back so soon, but we got
so much fan mail and such a great reaction that I thought ‘Well, why not.  If
they’re having a good time and we always do, let’s just do it’.”
2011, Dolly continued to receive accolades for what was her most successful
European and Australian tour of her 45-plus year career—The Better Day World
Tour! During the 2011 tour, Dolly performed for record-breaking attendances in
both Europe and Australia, surpassing her previous attendance records. In 2008,
Dolly performed 17 European shows to over 170,000 fans, surpassing her then-best
2007 European tour, where she played 21 shows for over 140,000 people.  Each of
these treks grossed in the tens of millions of dollars and established Dolly as
Europe’s favorite and most successful country artist.
