Dolly Parton set a personal best record when she sold more than 29,000 tickets over two shows at the Hollywood Bowl over the weekend (Friday, July 22 and Saturday, July 23). This marks the most tickets she has sold in a single city on one visit in the history of her 55-year career. She appropriately referred to the venue as the “Dollywood Bowl.”

The LA Times reports, “Parton operated with a queenly mettle that spoke to her five-decade journey from Appalachian hardship to Nashville aristocracy. She hardly required a throne to establish her position of power.”

The iconic singer is touring in support of her new Better Day album (Dolly Records, distributed through Warner Music Nashville). This leg of the Better Day World Tour runs through Aug. 3 before heading to Europe and Australia, then returns to the U.S. beginning Oct. 7.
