Beth Ditto will celebrate the release of her debut solo album, Fake Sugar, with a North American headline tour. The run will kick off on July 12 at U Street Music Hall in Washington, DC and include two New York City dates – July 13 at the Bowery Ballroom and July 14 at Rough Trade in Brooklyn. It will conclude on July 26 with a show at The Independent in San Francisco. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 5, at 10:00 AM local time.
Virgin Records will release Fake Sugar on June 16. Fans who pre-order the digital album will instantly receive the first single, Fire, which recently earned a spot on NPR’s list of “10 Songs Public Radio Can’t Stop Playing,” with KXT’s Amy Miller naming the track as “one of my favorites of the year so far.” View Ditto’s recent performance of Fire on Later…with Jools Holland HERE.
