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’.”
