DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Multiple Grammy Award®–winning and multi-platinum selling band, Dixie Chicks, is coming to U.S. movie theaters for an exclusive one-night music event this summer.

Since their first album, the music of the Dixie Chicks has stirred emotions in fans across the world, making them one of the biggest and most influential bands of our time. Not just "big for a country band" or "big for a big female band," the Dixie Chicks are a multi-platinum selling act in North America, Europe and Australia. They are one of a mere handful of acts with multiple albums achieving "diamond" status (sales over 10 million copies) – both Wide Open Spaces (1998) and Fly (1999) hit that stratospheric landmark – and over the years have sold over 30 million albums worldwide and won thirteen Grammy Awards. Their on-stage reputation has helped them sell over $100 million worth of concert tickets while outspoken songs like "Goodbye Earl" and "Not Ready To Make Nice" made it clear that this power trio played by nobody's rules. The Dixie Chicks have grown from a band into a cultural force becoming the biggest-selling female band of all time in the U.S.
“This promises to be a fantastic concert event from one of the world’s most popular groups,” Fathom Events CEO John Rubey said. “DCX MMXVI was the first time in 10 years that the Dixie Chicks have had a headline tour in the US and it sold out at numerous venues. We are thrilled that we are able to offer this in cinema concert to the die-hard fans and those who weren’t able to see them on tour.”
