Jewel Plans Coastal Tour Dates to Support ‘Picking Up the Pieces’ Album
Jewel is gearing up for her first tour in three years. The singer will kick off the 2016 Picking Up the Pieces Tour on March 4 in Louisiana and visit nine cities.
“It’s going to be really fun to get back out on the road,” Jewel says in a press release. “I’m excited to share the stories behind some of my favorite and most personal songs in such an intimate setting.”
The tour will include Jewel performing hits off her 12 released studio albums, as well as the singer sharing stories from her most recent memoir Never Broken — Songs Are Only Half the Story in which she writes about her childhood and career. The run is named for her current album, released last fall. Tickets for Jewel’s Picking Up the Pieces Tour go on sale on Jan. 15 at 10AM.
“When you grow up as a girl on a homestead with an outhouse, you don’t have many heroes in the public eye,” Jewel tells TIME. “Dolly and Loretta [Lynn] were them, because they had outhouses and they had a similar lifestyle to me. I loved their audacity. They were women who were so outspoken and they had no shame in being who they were. They were so ahead of their time, and I always thought it was quite heroic. So I asked [Dolly] to sing on the song, and I was pretty surprised she said yes. I’m tremendously honored.”
