NORAH JONES NORTH AMERICAN SUMMER TOUR ANNOUNCED

CRITICS RAVE ABOUT JONES’ RETURN TO SXSW

On the heels of a stand-out performance at the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas where she debuted songs from her much-anticipated forthcoming album Little Broken Hearts, Norah Jones has revealed the details of her North American summer tour. Kicking off June 20 in Indianapolis, the tour will hit a mixture of festivals, amphitheatres and theatres including the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville (June 24), a hometown show at Central Park SummerStage in New York City (July 3), and a return to the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles (August 10). See below for tour dates and visit www.norahjones.com for ticketing details when they become available.

10 years after she first performed at SXSW, Jones made a triumphant return to the festival last week, performing Little Broken Hearts in its entirety in front of an enraptured capacity crowd at La Zona Rosa on Saturday night. The Associated Press praised the new songs, calling them “stylish yet deeply emotional,” adding that “she showed fans a different side” and that the album is “a departure for Jones and another step in her evolution.” USA Today wrote “sometimes sweet and sometimes spooky, the songs, co-written and produced by Danger Mouse on the album, have atmospheric weight performed live also,” and highlighted the “cheery, cutting” lead single “Happy Pills.”
