Full Houses In Vancouver, Seattle and Portland Buoy The Dixie Chicks

After working the packed-to-the-rafters crowd into a frenzy with Goodbye Earl (a wickedly murderous tale about a woman who poisons the man who abuses her), frontwoman Natalie Maines lathered up fans by telling them they were the best yet on the band's North American tour.

Then she speculated why the crowd of 16,000 or so was in such good spirits. "I get the feeling it's one of two things," she said.

"It's either free beer night or you're glad [U.S. Defence Secretary] Donald Rumsfeld resigned. Finally, a reason to celebrate in the United States."

The audience, which had immediately fallen silent when Maines began to speak, screamed and hollered in agreement.
