2 min read

(AUSTRALIA) Due to a huge demand for tickets, iconic singer, songwriter, musician, actress and philanthropist Dolly Parton will perform one extra Sydney show at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on the Australian leg of her Blue Smoke World Tour. Tickets for this final Sydney show will go on sale at 9am Friday 24 January.

The Adelaide show date has also changed. The extension of the Dolly Parton Blue Smoke World Tour to include new shows in Tamworth and Cairns will allow more of her Australian fans to enjoy one of country music’s greatest performers. To facilitate the tour extension the Adelaide Entertainment Centre concert date has been rescheduled to Thursday, February 13.

Dolly Parton returns to Australia after her widely successful 2011 tour. Dolly’s latest studio album of all new material – ‘Blue Smoke’ – will be released worldwide on Dolly Records, distributed through Sony Music Australia, on 31 January 2014.

In 2011, Dolly continued to receive accolades for what was her most successful European and Australian tour of her 45-plus year career – The Better Day World Tour! During the 2011 tour, Dolly performed for record-breaking attendances in both Europe and Australia, surpassing her previous attendance records. In 2008, Dolly performed 17 European shows to over 170,000 fans, surpassing her then-best 2007 European tour, where she played 21 shows for over 140,000 people. Each of these treks grossed in the tens of millions of dollars and established Dolly as Europe’s favourite and most successful country artist.
