In a bid to "accomodate demand", the Dixie Chicks have pulled 14 dates on their current US tour.

That's accomodating as in accepting there's no demand and replacing them with dates over the border in Canada, where a more mature attitude to free speech is generally welcomed.

The band statement out their apologies:

"This is a year where we weren't sure what to expect.

"We were prepared for a lot of things as we figure out this new phase of our career."

"We hope that our fans who were looking forward to a stop that is no longer on the tour will be able to join us at a nearby arena this fall, and we are sorry for any confusion or inconvenience these changes have caused."
