Joss Stone will play eight U.S. headlining dates this spring. The outing begins April 21 at the Chicago House of Blues and wraps May 2 at SunFest in West Palm Beach, Fla.

Additionally, Stone has scheduled a series of high-profile TV specials and festival appearances. She performs alongside Patti LaBelle, Jessica Simpson, Ashanti, Eve and others on the live VH1 "Divas" special on April 18, and she duets with Smokey Robinson on his classic "I Second That Emotion" for the Motown 45th anniversary special, scheduled to air May 3 on ABC. Stone will also film a performance for "Austin City Limits" in April, to air in the show's next season.

When her U.S. tour wraps up, Stone will open for Sting at London's Royal Albert Hall from May 14-20. The S-Curve artist is booked by Monterey Peninsula Artists.
