Back ailment forces Dolly Parton to postpone tour

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A back problem has forced Dolly Parton to postpone a concert tour she planned in support of her new album.

Publicist Marcee Rondan says Parton had been scheduled to kick off a 13-show tour on Feb. 28 in Minneapolis, two days after release of the CD "Backwoods Barbie."

Doctors advised Parton to take up to eight weeks off to recover from the unspecified problem.

The tour will be rescheduled for late April through May and tickets will be honored for the new dates.
