It's been a good few months for long-awaited live comebacks: first Neutral Milk Hotel 's Jeff Mangum comes out of hiding for an extended tour, then D'Angelo  returns with a few overseas tour dates, and now Fiona Apple  has announced a proper trek next month, following a few scattered dates last year. At this rate, we can expect the Outkast  tour announcement pretty soon.
Apple's six-date tour will begin days after the singer-songwriter's performance at SXSW  on Mar. 15. The follow-up to Apple's 2005 album "Extraordinary Machine" may also be around the corner -- last month Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid announced that the release of Apple's fourth full-length will "absolutely be this year."
Here are the dates for Fiona Apple's March tour:
March 19: Chicago, Ill. (Lincoln Hall)
March 21: Washington D.C. (TBA)
March 23: Brooklyn, N.Y. (Music Hall of Williamsburg)
March 24: Atlantic City, N.J. (TBA)
March 26: New York, N.Y. (Bowery Ballroom)
March 27: Boston, Mass. (Royale Boston)
