From a press release:

It was announced today that nine-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Norah Jones will kick off her new tour at the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts in Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, Oct. 20.

Tickets, which are $38, $58, and $68, plus fees, go on sale Wednesday, Sept. 9 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at the Kirby Center box office, online at, and by phone at 570-826-1100. A special Kirby Members pre-sale will begin this Friday, Aug. 28th at 10 a.m. Join by calling 570-823-4599, ext. 225.

Jones first emerged on the world stage with the February 2002 release of “Come Away with Me,” her self-described “moody little record” that introduced a singular new voice and grew into a global phenomenon, sweeping the 2003 Grammy Awards and signaling a paradigm shift away from the prevailing synthetic pop music of the time.

Since then, Jones has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and has become a nine-time Grammy Award winner. She has released a series of critically acclaimed and commercially successful solo albums – “Feels Like Home” (2004), “Not Too Late” (2007), “The Fall” (2009), and “Little Broken Hearts” (2012) – as well as two albums with her country collective The Little Willies and one with the Brooklyn-based Puss N Boots.

The 2010 compilation “…Featuring Norah Jones” showcased the songstress’ incredible versatility by collecting her collaborations with artists as diverse as Willie Nelson, Outkast, Herbie Hancock, and Foo Fighters.

“Little Broken Hearts,” which was produced by Danger Mouse, presented the fascinating next step in the artistic evolution of one of the music world’s most consistently intriguing singer/songwriters. Jones previously collaborated with Danger Mouse on his acclaimed 2011 album “Rome,” a valentine to classic Italian film score music that also featured Jack White.

Fans can expect to hear songs from across Jones’ entire catalog on the fall U.S. tour dates.
