An Evening with Dolly Parton started in North America in 2006, and continued in Europe in 2007, and was finished in North America the same year.



After taking nearly all of 2006 off from touring to focus on other projects, Parton returned with a new stage show in November for a few select concerts as she prepared for a 2007 European tour. The 17 initial dates for the tour "across the pond" were announced to the public for the first time in October 2006. She performed four more shows on the West Coast in early 2007 to hone the show for its European premiere. After the European leg, Parton performed for three nights at a Niagara Falls Casino and at a benefit concert to raise money for a new hospital in her hometown.

Although Parton had said after returning from Europe that a three-month U.S. tour would be coming with the release of her next CD Backwoods Barbie, those plans were pushed back to 2008.

The show

The shows were similar in vein to Parton's previous tours, her 2004 Hello I'm Dolly Tour and 2005's The Vintage Tour. Sets were similar except for the fact that Parton entered via hydrolic lift.

When the show premiered in Europe, an intermission was added so that it became a two act show, appropriately titled "An Evening With Dolly Parton."

Fans speculated that tracks from Parton's upcoming album Backwoods Barbie would be showcased but that was not the case. Instead "I Dreamed About Elvis," last used on the Hello I'm Dolly Tour was included and in Europe, tracks from her most recent studio album Those Were the Days were spotlighted.
