Posted in NYC | music | tour dates on November 13, 2013


Following cancer treatment and recovery time, Sharon Jones is back in action, as you may know, with her new album, Give the People What They Want, out January 14 on Daptone. Her previously-announced Beacon Theater show on February 6, to which there are still tickets, will be the start of a just-announced full two-month North American tour. Tickets for the tour are on pre-sale now and if you buy through Sharon Jones' site, you get a copy of the new record. (That deal is only for the pre-sale, sorry NYC.) All dates are listed in this post.

Before that, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings will be performing in NYC on a float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade which begins at 9 AM at CPW/77th St and finishes in Herald Square at noon. For those who don't live here (and those who do and don't go to the parade [most of us]), you can watch live coverage on NBC.

All dates are listed, along with a making-of version of her animated "Retreat!" video, below...

Why will you "save your thoughts on Macklemore"? Because he's white rapper from Seattle who gets airplay on Z100? Because he's not part of Lil' Wayne's clique?
He put that record together without any help from a major label; did it all himself. He is about as indie as it gets when you think about it. He just happens to be white and has a pop sound. I'll give him much more props than a band like Haim, any day.

Oops, posted wrong comment on wrong thread.
As for Sharon, much props to her. Glad to see she is healthy.

great singer but why does she always do that stupid pose in every photo i've ever seen of her?

If you've ever seen her live then you will know why she does that "stupid" pose. It's part of one of her dances.
