“We’re so excited to get out there and see the fans again. I’m really looking forward to singing songs the fans have not heard in a while, as well as the hits, while debuting a few new ones off Pure & Simple,” Parton said.

Parton’s set list will include hit songs along with a few new songs from her new album “Pure & Simple,” which is set for release this summer. She will also be playing songs that have not been heard live for decades, according to an Amalie Arena spokesperson.
