Norah Jones is preparing to embark on her biggest tour yet, which will play amphitheaters and arenas this fall. Capacities range between 12,000-15,000 seats, far larger than the theaters the artist played on her last major road trip in spring/summer 2003.
North American dates will kick off Aug. 12 in Antioch, Tenn., and are booked through Nov. 14 in West Palm Beach, Fla. Jones is also confirmed to perform at the Gram Parsons tribute concerts Return to Sin City, set for July 9 in Santa Barbara, Calif., and July 10 in Los Angeles.
Before the summer run, Jones will play a month's worth of shows in Europe, beginning with a May 29-31 stand in Paris and wrapping June 27 in Northampton, England.
The artist's Blue Note debut "Come Away With Me" has sold 8.5 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen Soundscan. Her April follow-up "Feels Like Home," which spent six weeks atop The Billboard 200, has sold 2.8 million copies.
Jones is booked by Joe Brauner at Creative Artists Agency.
