Merchant has had a busy schedule this year. Already she’s been to Australia and is currently gearing up for the European leg of her Motherland tour, which kicks off May 9 in Dublin. Just prior to her European excursion, Merchant was Stateside for a U.S. leg and will return at the beginning of June for another two weeks before hooking up with Isaak.

Isaak’s weekly TV program, “The Chris Isaak Show,” has kept him busy juggling schedules for the television and music sides of his career. Isaak’s first set of tour dates for the year begin at the end of May in Australia and New Zealand, and are in support of his latest album, Always Got Tonight.
