Dolly Parton announces new album and live dates for 2014
Dolly Parton has announced European tour dates to coincide with the release of her new album.
The album, called Blue Smoke, doesn't yet have a confirmed release date, however the Blue Smoke Tour reaches England on June 8 and includes one show confirmed so far for London's 02 Arena.
“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’.”
