Joanna Newsom has announced her first live performances in three years, taking place at theaters in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia and Milwaukee this fall. The singer-songwriter will play a total of eight nights in those four cities, with all tickets going on sale April 5th.

Unlike the full-band shows on her most recent 2015-2016 tour, Newsom will be performing these dates solo. A press release promises “rare and intimate performances” featuring her voice, harp and piano, “and probably some t-shirts in the lobby.”

Newsom, who loves a good rock pun, is calling these shows “THE STRINGS/KEYS INCIDENT — AN EVENING WITH JOANNA NEWSOM.” Her last album, Divers, arrived in 2015.
