The 10-city outing launches February 19 in Omaha, Neb., and touches down in midwestern and eastern cities for the most part. The singer/songwriter plays two-night stands in Chicago and New York City.

Best known for his hit album Girlfriend and its title track in 1991, Sweet continues to turn out well-crafted power-pop tunes. Even without the benefit of much record company promotion, he has maintained a loyal fan base over the years while building a body of work.

He recently performed at the opening gala for the John Lennon exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland after wrapping up a tour backing last year’s studio album, In Reverse.
