Dixie Chicks announced their MMXVI World Tour. Starting next year, it’s their first tour in 10 years, and the group made the surprise announcement in a video which you can see right here, and get the full itinerary of tour dates.

The full lineup — Natalie Maines, Martie Erwin Maguire, and Emily Erwin Robison — is back together and they made their exciting announcement on their official Facebook page and you can see the video below.

It was just a few months ago that Natalie Maines made a surprise appearance on stage with Taylor Swift in L.A. in a 1989 concert, as the two delivered a stunning duet performance of one of The Dixie Chicks’ biggest hits “Goodbye Earl.”

But now instead of hoping for such surprising here and there, fans can secure tickets for what is sure to be a memorable string of reunion concerts. The North American leg of the tour kicks off on June 1, 2016 in Cincinnati, Ohio and will wrap on October 10th at the Hollywood Bowl in L.A.

In retrospect the only real surprise is that it’s been such a long time. This is not a one-hit wonder group, after all. Not only do they have a grand total of 13 Grammy Awards, but it was their last album, 2006’s ‘Taking the Long Way’ that swept five of those 13 including the much coveted Album of the Year and Record of the Year. So this time around, who knows? The musical skies are the limit as is the enthusiasm of fans. Just judging from the massive reaction on social media, it’s clear that they’re being welcomed back with much anticipation.

Yes, the tour will mark their first time on the road together since 2006. A very long time ago. That was in the days when MySpace was in its heyday. But this time around we will have YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and more to capture the moments and watch them go viral.
