The group will visit more than 40 cities, including New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit, Dallas, and Toronto.

Robison and Maguire, who are sisters, teamed up to form the duo Court Yard Hounds and released albums in 2010 and 2013. Maines released her first solo album in 2013.

The Dixie Chicks' North American tour will follow the group's European tour that begins in April.
