Sinead O’Connor is returning to the concert stage after a four-year hiatus with a short Irish tour this fall — and she made her public re-appearance last week with a stunning performance of “Nothing Compares 2 U” and The Pogues’ “Rainy Night in Soho” on Irish TV’s “The Late Late Show.”

As you can see from the video clips below, O’Connor — clad in a hijab (she converted to Islam last year) — performs her powerhouse Prince-penned breakthrough single, as well as the Pogues favorite off of 1985’s Rum Sodomy & the Lash, backed by her own band and the Irish Chamber Orchestra.

O’Connor will play seven Irish concerts and festival in late September and October; see dates below.
