Legendary singer/songwriter and performer, RICKIE LEE JONES has just confirmed a rare intimate UK tour in July.

Dates includes The Assembly, Leamington Spa (July 5), The Queens Hall, Edinburgh (July 7), The Lowry, Manchester (July 8th) and the Union Chapel, London (July 9th).

The upcoming UK shows follow the release of her 2009 album “Balm in Gilead” – an extraordinary collection of emotionally powerful, texturally rich and endearing songs, many of which have been ‘incubating’ with Jones over the last several decades.

Last year marked the 30th anniversary of the dawn of Jones’ recording career, which exploded in 1979 with her self-titled debut album and its top 10 hit, Chuck E.’s in Love.

Jones had an immediate impact on pop culture, enjoying the massive buzz of an indelible SNL appearance and an instantaneous Rolling Stone cover, all while winning a Grammy for Best New Artist.
