I always thought they sounded a bit whiney anyway. All the easier to boycott... :-)

Their next 20-odd concerts are sold out; is patriotism dead?cory

Just read Sunday that something like 25 of their next 30 concerts are already sold out. Hating the Chicks apparently was just a fad, like antenna flags as trendy automotive accessories. Friend of mine runs a string of carwashes, and he said by Christmas of 2001, they were clogging his drains. They'd fall off the SUV and people couldn't even be bothered to pick them up.
Tour was sold out before the commentsAlpedhuez55

THey had sold out the tour before she made her comments. THe sales of their latest album had also peaked and were on their way down. I think the true test will be with their next record. I also do not see them singing the national anthem at any more Superbowls. But I doubt there will be much long term effect on their careers.

Probably a bunch of Berkeley far left/anti-war protester students who never listened to 60 seconds of country music in their lives going to show proper P.C. support; a whole new audience for the DCs; likely won't last long, either.

the response they get when they play in Austin on May 21st. I wonder if that one will somehow fall off their itinerary :O)
