After a rather tumultuous past month where she was married and divorced in the matter of a few days followed by a reunion of sorts, Sinead O’Connor announced a brief run of dates on the East Coast and West Coast in support of her new album “How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?”

It remains to be seen if more dates will be announced for the rest of the country. Tickets for these four shows go on sale this Friday, January 13th.
