Dixie Chicks Will Give Live Performance

The Dixie Chicks will interrupt their year off from performing with a live concert in Austin, Texas, on Sept. 15. The Texas Twilight Gala concert at the Austin Music Hall is a benefit for the Pediatric AIDS League of Texas and other Texas pediatric AIDS programs. The Chicks will perform “a unique acoustic set” with the Austin Symphony Orchestra, their first pairing with a full symphony. Shawn Colvin and Terri Hendrix also will perform. The benefit came about after the recent birth of Chick Natalie Maines’ first child, when she requested that donations be made to pediatric AIDS groups in lieu of baby gifts. The concert is by invitation only. 08/10/01
