Sara Bareilles’ Brave New Dates

Once Sara Bareilles wraps her upcoming co-headline tour with OneRepublic she doesn’t plan on staying off the road for too long. The singer/songwriter has announced a 10-city North American headline tour for October with gigs in New York, Chicago and Kansas City.

When Pollstar interviewed Bareilles’ agent for her 2008 cover story, Marty Diamond said, “She’s a career artist. This is the beginning of a very long and fruitful career.” Well, looks like he was right. The fall tour includes her first headline performance at NYC’s historic Radio City Music Hall.

This month Bareilles has a few headline dates to do before she teams up with Ryan Tedder & company for the co-headline excursion, which launches Aug. 29 with a show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre near Morrison, Colo.

Bareilles is supporting her third studio album, The Blessed Unrest, which debuted at No. 2 on the Nielsen SoundScan chart and includes the single “Brave.”
Here’s where you can find Bareilles in October:

Oct. 6 – Boston, Mass., Orpheum Theatre     
Oct. 7 – Washington, D.C., Lincoln Theatre     
Oct. 9 – New York, N.Y., Radio City Music Hall     
Oct. 10 – Philadelphia, Pa., Electric Factory     
Oct. 12 – Lakewood, Ohio, Civic Auditorium     
Oct. 13 – Chicago, Ill., Riviera Theatre     
Oct. 15 – Kansas City, Mo., Uptown Theater     
Oct. 16 – St. Louis, Mo., The Pageant     
Oct. 18 – Indianapolis, Ind., Egyptian Room     
Oct. 19 – Athens, Ohio, Templeton-Blackburn Memorial Aud.

A fan club presale for select markets begins Aug. 20 at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Aug. 23.

There’s a good chance tickets might go pretty quickly. Her recent “Brave Enough Tour” sold out nationally in three minutes.

Her May 20 stop on the tour in Atlanta was filmed for a new live DVD and CD package, which Bareilles executive produced. Brave Enough: Live at the Variety Playhouse is due out Oct. 22 through Epic Records.
