on April 20, 2010, 9:05am

Fresh off the release of both a disorderly conduct charge and her latest studio album, New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh, Erykah Badu has mapped out plans for a North American tour this summer.

Her travels will consist of three parts: First, on May 22nd, she’ll launch a headlining tour across the U.S. that will see her paired with the likes of N.E.R.D., Janelle Monáe, The Roots’ ?uestlove, and Maxwell. Then, starting June 27th, she’ll partake in the revival of Lilith Fair with appearances at six stops, most of which will be centered in the Pacific Northwest and Canada. Finally, after a month pause, Badu will hit the road for a Lilith Fair date in Raleigh before stopping in Chicago for a performance at this year’s Lollapalooza.

Tickets for many of the upcoming engagements go on sale starting Friday, April 23rd via Ticketmaster.com.
