Webster PRDolly Parton will take her Blue Smoke World Tour to Europe, New Zealand and Australia in the coming months, but she's launching the trek tonight in Rancho Mirage, California.
"It's always great to perform at home in the good ol' U.S.A.," Parton says. "I love traveling all over the world; but it's true, there's nothing like home."
The country legend's U.S. run also includes shows on Saturday in Primm, Nevada; Sunday in Reno, Nevada; and Tuesday in Phoenix. She launches her Down Under tour February 7 with a two-night stand in Auckland, New Zealand.
