Corinne Bailey Rae can’t stop touring behind new album

on June 11, 2010, 3:45pm

Corinne Bailey Rae is getting no rest after her tour of Europe and Asia.  The 31-year-old songstress has just announced a slew of headlining dates before and after her six-date stint on the final leg of this year’s Lilith Fair.

She’s currently making the rounds on the European summer festival circuit, and the Asian leg of her tour takes her to exotic locales like Singapore, Japan, and Korea. After her set at the famed Fuji Rock Festival, she’ll hop on a plane and jet to New York Harbor for a show at The Beach at Governors Island. The rest of her journey looks quite exhausting with only nine days off — luckily, she’ll be in good company.

Joining her for the last week of Lilith Fair will be The Courtyard Hounds, Janelle Monae, Jill Scott, Sia, and Norah Jones.  In fact, Jones and Rae will get all BFF and take off for their own week-long soiree, which includes a show at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre and culminates with a two-night stand at The Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA.

She’ll celebrate by playing clubs across the South and Southeast before wrapping it all up with a performance at the brand new Life Is Good Festival in Canton, MA. Whew, we’re tired just thinking about it.

You can buy tickets for select dates at Ticketmaster.com, and check out this video of an axe-wielding Rae playing “Paris Nights/New York Mornings” in Williamsburg, PA.
