Sinead O’Connor — who launched a public reemergence last month with a stunning performance on Irish television — will follow up her fall Irish tour with concerts in the United States and Canada early next year, her first North American dates in six years.
O’Connor, who hasn’t toured since 2015, will play eight Irish dates this October and November. She’ll follow that up with a North American trek in 2020, the details of which are just now emerging.
While she hasn’t formally announced a tour, Slicing Up Eyeballs has confirmed at least 16 dates between Feb. 1 and April 11 through ticketing and venue sites; many are in California and along the West Coast in February, but concerts are scheduled more sporadically through March and April.
It’s not known whether more shows will be announced.
According to promotional language shared by several of the venues:
Having left the stage four years ago on a journey of self-renewal, Sinead O’Connor returns to the stage; importantly, to the international stage, beginning with a string of select U.S. dates to what promises to be an exciting 2020, seeing Sinead finally return to North America.
Tickets for the many of the dates listed below go on sale Friday.
UPDATE 10/10/19: The full tour has now been announced, so we’ve added shows in Portland, Ore., Chicago and New York City to the list below.
