There is no doubt Dolly Parton is an icon. She has written over 3,000 songs, had numerous #1 hits worldwide, sold millions of records, won countless awards and is a talented actress, earning an Oscar nomination for her performance in the cult film '9 to 5'.

Now anticipation is building for Dolly Parton's forthcoming UK arena tour and the return of the most popular female country music artist of all time. Dolly will play to over 100,000 fans across 8 dates making this her biggest UK tour for many years.

To coincide with the tour and to celebrate her outstanding career, Sony BMG is releasing a deluxe collectors tour edition box set on 9th June 2008.
