    The Dixie Chicks are ready to party in the U.S.A.

    The Grammy-winning group will kick off its "DCX MMXVI World Tour" on June 1 in Cincinnati. It wraps up the tour Oct. 10 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

    Tickets go on sale Friday.

    The group will visit more than 40 cities, including New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit, Dallas, and Toronto. The tour is the largest the group has undertaken in North America since its Accusations & Accidents World Tour in 2006.

    The Dixie Chicks are Natalie Maines, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire. Their last album, "Taking the Long Way," was in 2006. It won the Grammy for album of the year. And its hit single, "Not Ready to Make Nice," won song and record of the year Grammys.

    Robison and Maguire, who are sisters, teamed up to form the duo Court Yard Hounds and released albums in 2010 and 2013. Maines released her first solo album in 2013.

    "Just when you thought you were safe, America, we're back," Maines comments in the 15-second clip from the band. "It's been 10 years since we toured the U.S."

    The Dixie Chicks' North American tour will follow the group's European tour that begins in April.
