Dolly Parton’s upcoming album might be called Pure & Simple, but the LP’s accompanying tour is shaping up to be an elaborate cross-country spectacle.
The superstar, who recently performed alongside pop singer Katy Perry at the 2016 ACM Awards, announced Monday the first leg of the Pure & Simple Tour will visit 18 U.S. cities, kicking off June 3 in Greensboro, North Carolina and will wrap Nov. 15 in her hometown of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The full tour will reportedly visit 60 cities around the world upon its conclusion, including Parton’s first stops in Canada in nearly two decades, though remaining dates have yet to be announced.

According to her website, Parton will perform “the hits her fans love along with a few new songs from the double-disc album,” and “songs that have not been heard live for decades” on the tour, which supports Parton’s upcoming double-disc album, Pure & Simple with Dolly’s Biggest Hits. The set will feature all-new material in addition to some of her most successful singles to date.
