Dolly To Return To Europe On Upcoming “Blue Smoke” Tour


Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton’s Blue Smoke will soon be wafting through Europe as well as she has just announced plans to return to Europe for a set of tour dates through June and July, hitting seven countries in 17 days. The European run will bring her back to the O2 Arena in London, where she recorded and filmed her DVD/CD set An Evening With…Dolly that sold over half a million copies.

“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’.”

She will also release a CD of all-new material, Blue Smoke, to accompany the tour in the coming months, with a release date to be announced soon.
