Mary Black Issues Last Call For U.S.

Mary Black locks down the U.S. portion of her world tour.  Marking her retirement from touring, Ireland’s premier female singer says goodbye to her fans on this side of the pond beginning in late October.

Possessing a voice so pure it has been used as a benchmark for testing high fidelity gear, Black’s career includes 11 studio albums and decades of performances. 

Black described her feelings about the tour in a message posted on her website earlier this year.


“Music has been so good to me, I’ve loved touring the world for the last 30 years … I have made so many friends and have countless fond memories from different corners of the globe.  So to my fans everywhere I’d like to thank you and let you know that I hope to get back again to all my favourite places in 2014, for one final tour – ‘The Last Call.’”

The last time Black toured the U.S. was two years ago in support of her Stories From The Steeples album.
