Poor Ticket Sales Force Dixie Chicks to Cancel Memphis Show

NASHVILLE, TN - The Dixie Chicks have canceled several U.S. concerts on their "Accidents & Accusations" tour after slow ticket sales in some markets.

Memphis, Knoxville, Kansas City, Houston and St. Louis are among 14 stops no longer on the original schedule.

Other shows, including Nashville, Los Angeles and Phoenix, have been pushed back to late fall.

A spokeswoman for the group says there are still the same number of North American tour dates, but some Canadian cities have replaced the dropped U.S. shows.
