Dixie Chicks Tour "In Trouble"

Last week I noted that the numbers behind the debut of the Dixie Chicks album didn’t bode well for the group. For that I was excoriated by some Chix fans.

Week 2 numbers are out and sales have predictably fallen, down 48%, but the album remains at the top of the Billboard charts. The album, despite massive pre-release publicity, doesn’t figure to match the success of the bands 2002 offering, “Home,” though it will easily go platinum (one million copies sold) and probably multi-platinum. Unfortunately for the Chicks that’s the good news…

Their tour, the place they make their real money, may be in serious trouble…
