Dixie Loves the Chicks.....NOT!

I've been following the Dixie Chicks and their upcoming concert tour. It seems that their former fans in Dixie are rejecting them en masse and the message of "we're ashamed the President is from Texas" bit. So far the cities that have been cancelled are Oklahoma City, Memphis, Jacksonville Fl, Kansas City, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Fresno, Las Vegas, Greensboro NC, and maybe Los Angeles.

Here is how the Chicks spin this on their website.

TOUR UPDATE:

Eight new cities have just been added to the first leg of the North American tour (see tour page). No shows have been cancelled. Some originally-announced late summer concert dates that were going to be put on sale the weekend of June 10 were not put on sale until a final determination is made if they are going to be moved to the fall. More tour details announced as they become available.


Four of these new venues are in Canada! Dixie my ass! In Dallas the concert goes on, but you can still get lower level seats.

And, thank you very much, this has nothing to do with censorship. It has to do with people deciding on who the want to spend their hard earned money on to see a concert. And evidently, it ain't the Chicks!

Finally someone said it. Its got nuttin to do with their freedom of speech, singing, media blitz whatever. I just wish they would join the other chicks in the coop and go away. I am sick of seeing their ugly mugs on the television, internet, etc. Blick

Chas and Anony,

Just curious, did you ever like their music/looks? There are thousands of musicians I could care less about, and only a few I would pay (and have paid) to see.

One more thing. If your concern is NOT about their freedom to speak does that mean you are NOT angry with them for what they said?

And, speaking of Dallas, you have to read this article, Area homes undervalued, from our local newspaper. It seems you guys have the most undervalued housing in the whole country!

Hello Alan, Actually I did like their music, and they have a right to say anything they want. Their fans also have a right to drop them like a hot potato if they don't like the fact they bad mouth the President in a foriegn country during wartime. May they have a good time in Canada!

Chas,

Just checking if you can comment on ATW OK. Not sure why it was stopping you? But you are the second person to tell me this in a day so I'm guessing typepad is to blame. Or George W!
