The Dixie Chicks will bring their long-awaited North American tour to the Bangor waterfront this summer.

The Chicks will wrap up their European tour in May and then head back to the states to perform at Darling's Waterfront Pavilion on Thursday, June 16, 2016.

The Dixie Chicks -- Natalie Maines, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire -- took country music by storm in the late '90s and early 2000s with huge crossover albums Wide Open Spaces and Fly and Home.

Those albums produced huge hits including "There's Your Trouble," "Cowboy Take Me Away," "I Can Love You Better," "Goodbye Earl," "Long Time Gone," and many more.

The Chicks became the center of a political controversy in 2003, when conservatives led a boycott of the group's music after Maines criticized President George Bush and the Iraq War while introducing their song "Travelin' Soldier" at a concert in England.

Maines has never backed down from her statement and in 2006, the group released Taking the Long Way, which included the song "Not Ready To Make Nice" and debuted at No. 1 on both the U.S. pop and country charts.

Tickets for the Bangor show will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 21.
Tickets prices range from $20.00 to $132.00.
