DOLLY PARTON - UK tour in October   November
First UK dates since 1983! Due to an unexpected deadline placed upon her for a film soundtrack, Dolly Parton has been forced to reschedule her previously announced
October concerts in the UK and Ireland. She now plans to return to the
UK during the second half of November to perform concerts at all of
the originally scheduled venues and will add one or two dates "to make
it up to my fans for all the trouble I'm putting them through".
These shows – which will be billed as ‘An Evening With Dolly Parton’ and will be without a support act -
will be her first UK & Irish dates since 1983.
