Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) are delighted to announce that internationally renowned superstar Dolly Parton will perform at the GE Oil & Gas Arena on Sunday 15th June 2014.
Iconic singer, songwriter, musician, actress and philanthropist Dolly Parton announces that the ‘Blue Smoke World Tour’ will travel across the pond in 2014 for June and July concerts in Europe visiting Aberdeen’s GE Oil & Gas Arena as well as venues in England, Ireland, Scotland, Denmark, Germany, Norway, in addition to returning to the O2 Arena in London, the venue where Dolly recorded and filmed An Evening With…Dolly (Dolly Records), her widely praised DVD/CD set that was certified GOLD by the RIAA.
Dolly’s latest studio album of all new material “Blue Smoke” will be released worldwide on Dolly Records with a release date to be announced soon.
“Every time I come to Europe I’m just as excited as I was my very first time, which was many, many years ago. I love that part of the world and I especially love the fans, ” adds Parton. “We always have such a good time and I’ve put together a lot of things for this show that I think the fans will love. We had not planned to come back so soon, but we got so much fan mail and such a great reaction that I thought ‘Well, why not. If they’re having a good time and we always do, let’s just do it’.”
In 2011, Dolly continued to receive accolades for what was her most successful European and Australian tour of her 45-plus year career—The Better Day World Tour! During the 2011 tour, Dolly performed for record-breaking attendances in both Europe and Australia, surpassing her previous attendance records. In 2008, Dolly performed 17 European shows to over 170, 000 fans, surpassing her then-best 2007 European tour, where she played 21 shows for over 140, 000 people. Each of these treks grossed in the tens of millions of dollars and established Dolly as Europe’s favourite and most successful country artist.
Brian Horsburgh, AECC’s Managing Director says, “We are delighted that a performer of this magnitude has chosen to include AECC’s GE Oil & Gas Arena on her World Tour, which reinforces our position as the largest Music Venue in the North of Scotland. We look forward to welcoming Dolly Parton to the Venue and are sure this will be highly sought after event for summer 2014.”
