Sinéad O'Connor announces first North American tour in 6 years, 1 Canadian date

It’s been more than four years since Irish singer-songwriter Sinéad O’Connor was on tour, and half a decade since she played any shows in North America.

She released her last album, I’m Not Bossy, I’m the Boss in 2014, and after promoting it extensively, she unofficially went on hiatus as she took time to get help for her very public struggle with mental health.

Now, the 52-year-old is coming back. Early Monday morning, the Mandinka singer announced an all-new North American tour — ‘786.’

The 24-date trek kicks off on Feb. 1 with its only Canadian show — at the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver — before concluding in April with three shows at the City Winery in New York City.

O’Connor’s unexpected touring plans come a year after the release of the Milestones single, which she put out under her formerly legal name, Magda Davitt.

The single was made available exclusively to readers of The Irish Sun, who also reported that the musician’s next album would be named No Mud No Lotus.

As of this writing, there has been no official updates regarding O’Connor’s 11th studio album.
