Martina McBride Preps For 2009 U.S. Tour By Heading Overseas


In a recent interview with Billboard, Martina McBride revealed that she is embarking on a 7 concert European tour at the end of the month.

McBride told the mag that she is using this small tour, that includes stops in London and parts of Ireland, to prep for a North American tour that will begin in November.

This will be the first time in nearly 15 years that Martina has played overseas.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve been over there, probably ’94 was the last time,” she says. “I’m looking forward to it, we made so many great memories last time I was there.”

McBride admits that it’s tough to be out on the road (especially overseas!) when you’ve got three children.

“I’ve got such a limited amount of time I can tour, with the kids and their schedules,” says McBride. “So finding the time to pull back from my touring here and make the trip was a challenge.”

Details on the North American tour will be announced at a later date. Although the tour here in the states doesn’t begin for another 4 months, McBride and her team have already started planning for it.

“We’re starting our U.S. tour in November, we’re just now starting to put it together and come up with set designs. Typically what we do is put out an album and start touring right away. We took some time this time.”
