After taking nearly all of 2006 off from touring to focus on other projects, Dolly returned with a new stage show in November for a few select concerts as she prepared for a 2007 European tour. The 17 initial dates for the tour "across the pond" were announced to the public for the first time on Dollymania in October 2006. Although Dolly had said after returning from Europe that a three-month U.S. tour would be coming with the release of her next CD likely around September 2007, those plans were pushed back to 2008.
2006-2007 North American Dates
Not an actual "tour," there were five 2006 concerts in three North American cities and four in 2007 to prepare for her European tour. One May 2007 benefit concert also took place in her home county after three sold out nights at a Canadian casino. • Nov. 16 - Mohegan Sun Casino, Uncasville, Conn.
